Recap: ACE’s Latitude 53 Patio Party
Posted 22nd Jul, 2015

It was the perfect night to kick back on a street-level patio in the heart of downtown. Latitude 53 graciously hosted Ad Club of Edmonton members and guests for a Patio Party and gallery viewing on July 9, 2015. DJ Polyesterday provided the soundtrack for a relaxing evening of catching up with our favourite fellow advertising and media aficionados.
The bar opened at 5:00pm sharp and the signature cocktail, a tarragon and watermelon Hennessey Collins, flowed until we headed to the official after party at Red Star Pub. Latitude 53 volunteers passed around guacamole and chicken-topped homemade chips from Tres Carnales Taqueria. The local Taqueria recently opened Rostizado, a downtown Mexican rotisserie featured in an upcoming episode of “You Gotta Eat Here!” Needless to say, the snacks were amazing!
Besides the food, drinks, and patio lounging, the gallery doors were also open to check out the Incubator Series of interactive audio and visual artwork, photography, and party-themed paintings. Latitude 53, Print Machine, and the following featured artists were the brains behind the Incubator:
- Cindy Couldwell
- Carmyn Joy Effa
- Deann Stein Hasinoff
- Cory Johnn
- David J. Nyfeler
- Emmanuel Osahor
- Reza Rezai
- Paul Swanson
- Jeremy Tsang
A special thanks to all of the local talent for helping ACE host an amazing Patio Party with Latitude 53. Shout out to the volunteers who kept our drinks flowing and our bellies full!
Save the date for our next event on August 13th – the 6th Annual Chesterfield Open. Check back for updates in the coming weeks!
