Thursday night looking bleak? Well, do this instead of your weekly date with NBC: The 3rd Annual UCR Retail As Art photography invitational kickoff party is tonight, 6pm-8pm at Design Within Reach. Guest speakers include:

Paul Morgan of Paul Morgan Photography and Three Three Three First Avenue, Jeff Breazeale and Liz Burnett of The Matchbox Studio, and Mickey Ashmore of United Commercial Realty. They will be discussing the importance of photography (not just boring, stock photography; rather, creative, boundary-pushing photography) in business.

Food will be provided by the talented Lisa Garza. There will also be a wine bar. I don’t think I have to convince you any further. NBC will be okay without you for one night.

Design Within Reach is located at 4524 McKinney Avenue Ste 103
