I’ve been in Oakland this month, stealing Meg’s (faux) fur to wear around the office and brainstorming over copious cold brew… but yesterday really took the cake. Why? Because Kate and I had invites to the sneak peek of Oh Happy Day’s Color Factory, and it was AMAZING. AWESOME. THE COOLEST.
It was a multi-room celebration of color and joy. A ball pit! Rainbow staircase! Yummy saffron rose soft-serve! Confetti! You can see some of the magic on the APW Instagram stories, and a bit more on the Compact Instagram stories. If you’re in the area, I 110 percent recommend buying a ticket and checking it out yourself, with a fully charged phone for extra documentation.
The way I see it, it’s been a rough week for a lot of us politically (on that note: trans folks are not a burden, not ever), so taking a timeout to just frolic in whimsy and enjoy being alive was very, very welcome.
Now, tell me about what was awesome in your week, because it’s your happy hour!
