Photos from the Grow Off round 2 kickoff party

The Grow Off is at it again with round 2 of their competition. This time they’re highlighting medical growers, for the 2017 competition. Thanks to Samantha (@thegrowoff on the community) I was able to score an invitation to the kick-off party held last Friday at the Battery 621 coworking and incubator space in downtown Denver.

As is typical in Denver, winter likes to round out the year with one last snowstorm at the end of April. Unfortunately the night of the party was chosen by the winter fates for the snowstorm. I wasn’t sure how many folks would show up due to the inclement weather. The party was supposed to be on the rooftop area but they had to move it inside. The roof was still available for smoking so people made the trek up into the snow to smoke or vape. Despite the weather the party was well attended and everyone seemed to be having a great time.

I got to chat with several competitors, some of whom were entering for the first time. They were all looking forward to getting their clones and getting started. There were also a few vendors and sponsors in attendance, including @Nordicmclean from Nordic Analytical Labs and Jason from EZTRIM. In one of the side rooms, EZTRIM had one of their rosin presses setup and were doing presses for people who brought in their own kief or flower. Botaincare supplied branded backpacks and swag for the door raffle (thanks @a.rollins!)

In the next room over were drinks and video games, with the sumptuous food catering and DJ setup in the main area. In the back games were setup: foosball, cornhole (aka beanbag toss) and ping pong.

I had a great time at the party and it was worth driving through the slush to get there. Thanks @thegrowoff for the invite, and looking forward to seeing who wins in 2017!

Who else in Denver made it to the party? What was your favorite part of the event?
