#noonturnsone

We opened the doors to Noon Lodge one year ago on the first weekend of November, 2015. We never got around to throwing a launch party so as the one year anniversary approached we thought why not throw a party now? And throw a party we did. We invited as many people as our cabins could hold and packed as much as we could into the 19 hours we had before our weekend guests started arriving.

New and old friends joined us and by the end of the night it was like we had all known each other for years. It all went by far too quickly but only solidified the fact that this will likely become a yearly tradition. Maybe even a biannual one, who doesn't love a good 1/2 year anniversary.

Highlights include cabin tours led by Tyler Lain. Camp fire lullabies sung by Phoebe Bridgers as we ate all the street tacos we could handle under the meadow lights. And some of the best tunes spun by Ian of Dart Collective, we went from sing alongs around the fire pits to a dance party under the stars. The special "NoonShine" Mule helped keep the party going as well. ;)

HUGE thanks to everyone who came and especially to those who contributed to making the party so memorable. Sid the Cat for booking us Phoebe Bridgers. Ian from Dart Collective for spinning the tunes.  And Civil Coffee for serving up the best coffee that Big Bear has ever seen and helping us all to function a little bit better the next morning.
