Their tagline is, "Scooterhinge, A Nostalgic Rental Hall." But this venue in Mead, Colorado is more than nostalgic. It's eclectic, it's strange... it's downright a museum of the odd and unusual!
The My Big Day team went on a site visit of Scooterhinge to get an idea of what future signature events might makes sense in this space. We also receive requests for affordable event spaces where clients have the option to bring their own caterer and alcohol. This place offers all of that and more! So we wanted to get a feel of what this venue is all about before we make referrals to our clients.
Located between Loveland and Longmont, Mead is a town of less than 4,000 people. The owner of Scooterhinge is a collector of sorts. He purchased this building and started bringing in his collectibles (old motorcycles, classic cars, vintage dolls, nostalgic toys, the list goes on.)
The Huffington Post posted a fantastic article on things you shouldn't do after you get engaged. Writer, Sandy Malone hit the nail on the head!
From house hunting, to wedding gown shopping and to time spend on Pinterest, to wedding weight loss ... we 100% agree with Sandy's observations.
If you are a bride, or have a friend who is engaged, do her a favor, and send her this article!

This is a first for My Big Day! We sell out of our events often, but never has it happened in less than 24 hours from when tickets went on sale. We are so honored that in our 6th year of this event, we have created so much demand!
On April 19th we will have more than 100 players running around Old Town Fort Collins, hunting for eggs, and the ultimate prize, The Easter Keg! This is more players than we have ever had before!
Due to the growing size of this event, we have now partnered with Avogadros Number in Fort Collins to be our new 'kick-off' location. We will also have 3 photographers on hand to photograph the craziness of this event. This year we've also partnered with NoCo Short Bus Tours to offer safe transportation home for our teams and players.
Lastly, My Big Day is giving a portion of all proceeds from this event to one of our favorite animal shelters, Denkai Animal Sanctuary.
Thank you for all of your support!
Our events continue to grow, and we love you for that!

My Big Day is a BIG fan of any event that benefits people and businesses in multiple ways.
Great Plates is one of those events. The Fort Collins Downtown Business Association puts on this event every year, and it's benefits are three-fold:
- Restaurants receive business from potentially NEW customers that have never tried their restaurant before
- Customers get to try these restaurants at a great, discounted price
- The Food Bank of Larimer County benefits from this event, and in turn, raises enough money to serve thousands of meals!
The only problem we have is that the event only lasts two weeks, and we don't have enough time to try each restaurant!
For more information on this event, visit DowntownFortCollins.com --- but don't wait too long! The event this year is from March 1-14, 2014.
And to learn more about one of our favorite non-profits, visit the Food Bank of Larimer County website: FoodBankLarimer.org

Many people don’t realize it, but music plays a crucial part in your event. The band or DJ sets the mood for your special day so the importance of having a true professional is pivotal.
To ensure you are getting a professional-- listen to referrals, go out and see the band play or at the very least conduct a phone interview. After you’ve listened to them, arm yourself with these questions to ask your DJ or band -- and you should be prepared to dance the night away.
Below is My Big Day's helpful list of 26 questions you should be asking!
