The incredible people from Don’t Tell Comedy stopped by for a pop-up show here last Friday night. Don’t Tell Comedy has brought fun, intimate comedy shows to unique venues for the last year and a half. The group started in Los Angeles, and has spread to classrooms, rooftops, and bars of more than 25 cities across America.
We welcomed the inspiring mother-daughter duo of Lauren Bragg and Pamela Abbott-Mouchou to The Narrative Loft for their Goal Setting & Feng Shui workshop! The two came together for the workshop, uniting their methodologies, (forming the ultimate butt-kicking team, if I do say so myself) as they offered the group some insight on how they could live their best life.
The first day of the month means pretty much everything is going to be pumpkin-spice, and, for some reason, Monster Mash is always stuck in your head. Even though the bad Halloween puns are everywhere, they’re a small price to pay for the free candy. I guess you can’t skele-run from the bad skele-puns.
Back in August, the lovely people from Mayesh Wholesale Florists held one of their “Curate & Create” workshops at The Narrative Loft as a part of their U.S. flower workshop tour. The five-date tour featured the amazing Kaylee Young of Flourish by Kay, a floral design business based in Portland, Oregon.
Whether you’ve been trying to get your friends to go on that 10 mile hike with you, or if Sunday brunch (*cough* mimosas *cough*) is more your pace, Santa Barbara has long been known as the perfect place to get away when you’re in desperate need of some rest and relaxation. But now, the fun doesn’t need to stop after the sun goes down. We have some new friends in town that will help keep the party going long into the night, and even into the early hours of the morning.
The founders of Save the Mermaids, a nonprofit organization that started with an eager group of girls, grew into something bigger than what they could have imagined.
With graduation right around the corner, it was time for one last celebration! UCSB sorority Lambda Sigma Gamma joined us in our Santa Barbara Loft for a night of commemoration and frivolity.
Remember Tammy and Chris' wedding? How could you not! The now Mr. and Mrs. Lechner tied the knot at the beautiful Santa Barbara Courthouse on March 11, 2017, only to continue the fun and frivolity at The Narrative Loft post-ceremony.
Join founder Kayla Johnson and her lovely group of trainers for a butt-kicking good time! No worries if you missed the orientation here last week, the 6 week MIND + BODY lifestyle program challenge is still open. 5 Way Fit is FITNESS YOUR WAY, with a variety of fitness classes everyday day at different locations throughout Santa Barbara. Never get bored of your workout again! Check it out!
'Tis the season for celebration. No, not the kind where we all stuff our faces and cover every inch of our homes with tacky displays of holiday cheer. 'Tis the season for commending our young people's hard work. The time of year we celebrate our grads! UCSB sorority Lambda Sigma Gamma recognized their accomplishments with an awards dinner, welcomed their new members and honored their graduating members moving on to the next chapter of their lives.
Can you believe we are almost a third of the way through 2016? Neither can we. Over the last three and a half months we have had the most fantastic events here to date! It is an absolute blast seeing the variety of events taking place here and we have crafted our space with that exact idea in mind. Our space is a blank canvas that people can come create their own unique story in. Check out a few of 2016's one-of-a-kind events!
Back in early 2015, as sophomores in high school Zoe Reifel and Gabriela Goldberg set out alter the scenery and change the status quo for local teenagers. They set out to create a platform for the youth to inspire and empower one another by sharing their ideas, innovations and discoveries. Thus TEDx Youth at The Funk Zone was born.
Everyone was dressed to impress for AppFolio's kick-off party that launched a week of fun events for the group. The dreamy decor was not far behind in style points as Bella Vista Designs transformed the space with string lights, silk drapery and white paper lanterns, a match made in heaven with our timber beams and floors. The cool vibe transcended to every inch of the loft, especially the lounge area which Town and Country decked with a classy couch set. Omni Catering warmed guests souls with their signature grilled-cheese sandwiches before bringing out the food coma sealer, a build your own ice cream sandwich station! A shout out to Scott Gibson Photography for the great photos!
When we create we embark on true self-exploration! Santa Barbara artist, costume designer, and creativity coach Kirsten Gold is all about reaching these new facets of yourself through creativity. Her pop-up art gallery called Thresholds: A Woman Birthing Herself was an interactive and engaging event. Her work features gorgeously crafted collages and mixed media creations, pieces and parts of art that have been recycled into new artwork at the helm of her loving hands.
Procore celebrated their sales kickoff with a cocktail party that went late into the night. Santa Barbara's own Beta Play rocked the loft with some original tunes and covers from bands like Talking Heads and Uptown Funk. Elite Disk Jockeys also kept the group grooving with their selection of songs. Luners Production Services setup the stage lighting and audio turning the loft into an awesome concert venue.
It was sure cold outside, but our cozy space was nice and toasty for this lovely get together. Santa Barbara IT company Logic Monitor rang in the holidays here at The Narrative in the best way possible, a party!
Todd Mehl and Alex Thompson of Montecito Urban Farms in Summerland, CA partnered with Chapala Gardens owners, Sandy and Joy Kelly for this fantastic night of amazing food and an inspiring talk with Stephen Ritz. Members of the Juice Plus family joined the Santa Barbara community to soak in the energy and ideas of Stephen Ritz...
