In addition to quite an impressive assortment of sponsors, the Pawnstar first year anniversary party had a great body-painting artist who wrote in very stylized versions of the worlds “Pawnstar”, “Re-love” and “Re-use”.

After a number of rather irritating venue switches, we ended up in the entry area of the Lafayette Arts and Culture Center.

Thanks also to Wolf Blass for sponsoring the Pawnstar party. Their bubbly is a reliable option for parties. This brand does a pretty good job of “owning” that shade of yellow. Brands that can associate themselves with one color seem to stick in the mind pretty well. Think of Hermès. Another example from the world of wines and spirits is Patrón, which is quite associated in my mind with that shade of green. So the moral of the story is to pick your color and stay with it.
