Hallows Eve Beer Bash and Costume Ball-A Benefit for Believe in Music

Believe in Music benefit:  Hallows Eve Beer Bash and Costume Ball at the Maryland Science Center

The Saturday before Halloween is always jam packed with awesome events, and this year Baltimore Photo Social got to be a part of one of the most awesome-est:  Hallows Eve Beer Bash and Costume Ball.  The sold out event, held at the Maryland Science Center, was a benefit for Living Classroom Foundations Believe in Music program.  

Founded in 2012 by Kenny Liner of The Bridge, Believe in Music is a program aimed  
As a part of Baltimore Beer Week, the event was sponsored by Flying Dog Brewery who provided tons of delicious locally brewed libations to over 600 thirsty guests.  Attendee Alison Johnson said it best:
"I cannot think of anything more fun than being cut loose in a museum of gadgets with an (almost) open bar."
Almost everyone was in costume.  We spotted at least 3 Walter Whites, a few Mary Poppins, the cast of Star Wars, Smurfs, Frye and Lela from Futurama and of course all sorts of super heroes, cats, witches and skeletons.   It was noticeable that most female attendees were more concerned with impressively creative costumes than the typical "sexy ___" that have become so obnoxious over the last few years.   Maybe that is because the event was held at the Science Center?? 

If you got there early enough, a free finger food buffet was provided by Mothers Federal Hill Grille.  'Newtons Alley', 'The Shed' and 'Follow the Blue Crab', permanent museum exhibits, were open  for guests to meander through, maybe learning a little something along the way.  For those lucky enough to score one of the limited upgrade tickets, the internationally touring exhibit 'Mummies of the World' was open and complimented by a spooky Halloween soundtrack.  If science wasn't your thing, bands like The Herd of Main Street, Psycho Killers and The Manly Deeds kept the night rocking.  The 360 HD Planetarium was turned into a dance party, DJ's spinning all night under the milky wayScott Mullins, WTMD Dirty Soul Party DJ, lent his old school vibe by broadcasting live from the VIP lounge.  And of course, yours truly with the Baltimore Photo Social booth was boogying and taking pictures all night.   

Make sure you follow 'Believe in Music' on FB to be notified when tickets go on sale next year-You definitely do not want to miss out!

And now, here are some of our favorite photos from the night.  You can see all the photos from the night here.

F*ck Forks @ The Taste of DC Loft!

Industrees premiere pop-up event, F*ck Forks, at the Taste of DC loft.  A benefit for @LetsFCancer. 

Baltimore Photo Social was fortunate to be a part of this amazing event last night at the Taste of DC loft. With chefs from Cava Mezza, Equinox and The Red Hen, a savory smell of truffles and butter was in the air. Finger foods were abundant and drinks were flowing courtesy of Jon Arroyo (Farmers Restaurant Group), Sam Babcock (RANGE), Trevor Frye (Jack Rose Dining Saloon) and Glendon Hartley (Cava Mezze). There were treats for the eyes as well: beautiful red roses by EDGE Floral Event Designers and a live painting performance by ArtJamz.  And of course, guests flocked to us to have their photo taken to remember the event!

All of these wonderful things were brought together as a benefit for F*ck Cancer (  F*ck Cancer is a non profit organization focused on changing the way society perceives cancer 
"from something we wait to get and pray there’s a cure to something we’re actively working to prevent, actively looking for and finding when it’s most curable."
This event wouldn't have been possible without the expert organization of Industree, who are most known for their speaker series for event and restaurant professionals.   
"Industree serves as a bridge where there hasn't been one, and is committed to bringing the restaurant industry together in various formats to learn, grow, share, and connect through stories and the issues that face them moving forward in DC."

Founded in 2013 by Alisia Kleinmann, the organization has two main goals:   

"to bring the hospitality community together as just that - a community - and to always find ways to give back to the non-profits within that community through powerful philanthropic efforts."
Baltimore Photo Social has a similar motto: that business owners and organizations have a responsibility to society to leave positive influences in all that they do.  It was a pleasure working with other forward thinking remarkable people and we had a great time doing it.

And now, here are some of our favorite photos from the event!

Guests instantly viewed their images on our ipad.

A moose hat is a great way to get a large groups attention.
