On the Circuit: Ubuntu Loft Party


What: Ubuntu Loft Party
Where: 446 Broadway

On a chilly Saturday night in an old loft building way down on Broadway, the Ubuntu Education Fund held its annual loft party. Ubuntu develops education and health programs for the children of and around Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Today, they reach over 40,000 children with life-saving health and educational resources and services. No only are they making an incredible impact in South Africa, they can throw one hell of a party. We rang the buzzer and the door to the elevator suddenly opened. We stepped into the freight and went up several levels, walking into a well appointed loft and a party that was just getting started. The bar was open and stacked, and the food was good and plentiful. Rumor has the Blue Ribbon boys provided it. Nice. We danced, we drank, we caught up with old friends, and at the end of the night we tried to help out. Tis the season, no? Yes it is.
