New location and open bar after-party will make the largest event for young Jews in Colorado the place to be on Christmas Eve.
E-3 Events, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing together Jews in their twenties, thirties and forties, is currently selling tickets to Heebonism 2009, a Christmas Eve party tradition in Colorado for nearly two decades. The annual celebration, co-hosted by Heeb Magazine, is the largest local gathering of young and youngish Jewish professionals all year. This time, Heebonism will take place at the gorgeous JET Hotel, 1612 Wazee Street, in historic Lodo.
“This will be the biggest event we’ve ever produced,” said Eric Elkins, who, along with Ean Seeb and Ezra Shanken, formed E-3 Events. “We’re designing this party to have something for everyone—three talented and beloved DJs, a classy new venue, and an after-party that will last all night. Come early, leave early, or stay until the wee hours of the morning…we’ll be there until the sun comes up. And we’re thrilled that Proximus Tequila will be providing free tequila drinks for an hour, starting at nine!”
Entertainment will be provided by three popular DJs. Local favorites Max Klaw and Ginger are bringing along four-time DMC world champion DJ Vajra, who spins videos and tunes in complex and stunningly danceable ways.
“If you like to dance, you’ll love these DJs,” said Ean Seeb. “If you just want to talk to 500 of your dearest friends, you’ll love the venue. And if you truly want the full Heebonism experience, you’ll love the open bar, provided by Mr. B’s Wine and Spirits, starting at 2am.”
“E-3 is proud to welcome agency co-hosts again this year,” said Ezra Shanken. “We’re partnering with Hebrew Education Alliance, Birthright Israel Denver, CAJE, Judaism Your Way, Mizel Museum, Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado, and Jewish Family Service. And our continuing partnership with Heeb Magazine, though it makes me nervous, always adds some serious spice to the party.”
“This is an opportunity for newcomers and those already connected to the Jewish community to gather,” added Eric Elkins. “So many of us are looking for fun events where we can meet new people and feel good about being Jewish, without the sense that there’s some ulterior motive or agenda. Plus, where else are you going to find fun and friends on Christmas Eve?”
