When 8/7 Central split off from Raygun at the beginning of 2010, we consisted of six and a half guys who had just a vague idea of what we were doing. We hadn’t yet screen printed a poster, written a website contract, or even figured out how to pay taxes correctly. We had space to spare, and we wisely filled that space with a dart place (an oche, as we later learned) and a leaning place (modeled by Zach).
Fast forward two years to present day and we are bursting at the seams. We have more people than desks, more screens than shelves, and most of our meetings take place off-site. It is incredibly difficult to thrive in this chaos.
So… we are moving to larger confines! We will still be in the East Village, in fact, we will still be on the same street. Our new space is situated between Jimmy Johns and The Continental, and will feature proper ventilation (no more fumes!), a conference room area (no more people up in your bidness!), a real bathroom (no more standing water!), ample desk space (no touching!) and several other tricks we aren’t quite ready to reveal yet (no telling!).
More info on the new space and the open houses will be dropping as we get moved in in early April.
