ELECTRIC AFTERNOON: Electric Summer is an annual, very private party hosted by Gregory Gourdet (Executive Chef of Departure Restaurant + Lounge) and Tia Vanich (Production Coordinator and Event Planner).
This year's party, like last year, was held on the deck of the White Owl Social Club. It's the perfect space for what many say is the party of the summer...if not the year.
And here's why. It mixes the top chefs and purveyors in the local food and restaurant industry with some of the best DJ's in the country (and Hawaii) and let them loose on a space that for one afternoon is unlike any place else in the world. Good food...actually incredible food..good drinks, and great music all afternoon and early evening long.
According to Tia and Gregory, Electric Summer is inspired by outdoor electronic music festivals and the simple themes of amazing friends, amazing music and amazing food.
The history of this event started as a backyard barbecue potluck at Tia and Gregory's Northeast home for industry friends. Each chef brought a unique dish to share with the group. Friends' bands played and DJ’ed. Fast forward five years and a few hundred more industry friends later, and, well...you get Electric Summer: the perfect summer party.
