If the Two Twenty's Grand Opening was a sign of things to come, this place is going to be packed to the gills with Saskatoon's best, brightest and most innovative.
To celebrate the official launch of the co-working space, the Two Twenty hosted a bash of epic proportions. Fourteen artists (including Carrie Catherine, EEKWOL,Make Liars, and Violent Kin) performed on no less than three separate stages, a team of seven photographers and one videographer captured the action, and three bouncers made sure the riff-raff stayed where it belonged (inside). Add to that some free-flowing drinks, a bevy of hard-working creative types and an aural backdrop of spoken word courtesy of the Saskatoon Slam Poetry Team and you've got a night to remember.
If you couldn't be among the 600 attendees at the Two Twenty's Riversdale HQ, then you were probably following the festivities on Twitter and Facebook, where the updates were coming on fast and furious. In fact, even if you were there, a wicked Twitter wall kept tabs on the #220yxe hashtag, creating an interactive experience that kept the good times rolling both on- and off-line.

If the Two Twenty's Grand Opening was a sign of things to come, this place is going to be packed to the gills with Saskatoon's best, brightest and most innovative. It's a co-working space, it's a creative space and as a crowd of hundreds proved on November 10th, it's an awesome place to throw a party.
