Feature Friday: Boxman Studios

Every week, Emili and I strive to bring you what’s hot and in our opinion, the coolest around.  This week is no different. Boxman Studios is a revolutionary way to host events using the latest in recycled technology – shipping containers. That’s right, the folks over at Boxman custom fabricate these dinosaurs of logistics and outfit them with all the modern-day comforts. From seating for nearly 30 guests to a double-sided bar, solar powered electrical hookup and 500 square feet of covered outdoor space, these venues are delivered virtually anywhere. Even better? Boxman handles all the set up and break down (which takes only about 20 minutes.) Bam! – instant party. Just add people.

Really though, Boxman speaks for itself. In the very short time since their launch, they have been nominted for Opportunity Green Innovative Green Startup Award (one of 25 finalists); exhibited at Opportunity Green in Los Angeles; and is currently serving as hospitality exhibitor at the West Coast Green Conference in San Francisco (Sept. 30-Oct. 2).  I have been Boxman set up for tailgating at the Carolina Panthers and am anxiously awaiting the pending decision Charlotte City Council as to whether or not Boxmans mobile restaurant, LunchBox, was going to have zoning approval so that it could operate in the Uptown Charlotte area.

I can’t attend the Friendship Trays Garden Party Fundraiser this weekend to see the mobile Boxman venue at work, however if you can please join them Saturday, October 2nd, from 7-10 p.m. for the 2010 Friendship Trays Garden Party. This important fundraiser helps delivers more than 600 meals a day to elderly, handicapped, and convalescing people who are unable or greatly restricted in their ability to prepare or secure meals and who reside within the area reached with our corps of drivers.

Some of the fun you can expect at this year’s event include:

  • Delicious local and regional food
  • Famous Chef cooking demos
  • NC Seafood
  • Desserts
  • Spirits
  • Wandering minstrels, swirling fires and twinkling stars.
