House of Yes is an ice house.
No, we’re not talking about meth or rapper’s jewelry, we’re talking about frozen water. For those of you who didn’t know, House of Yes was originally built as an Ice House back in the day, which explains why it’s so COOL! We’re keeping it cool not only in temperature, but also in that “cool” way. Therefore, you can come see amazing things without dying of heat exhaustion. Of course, we’ll still make you sweat, because we’re “hot”. In a sexy way.

:::::::SEEKING HANDY MAN…or WOMAN!:::::
House of Yes is seeking skilled persons to have on call for the occasional odd jobs, fixing, installing, etc. Set Building, and Sculpture experience a plus, as we like our people to be skilled and creative. Pay is fifteen dollars per hour- must have own tools (although we do have some tools and machines in-house!) Please contact our Operations Manager, Evan Katz via e-mail at email@example.com. Please include relevant experience and examples of your work if possible. Headshots appreciated.
:::::::YELP OUR ASS:::::
House of Yes is seeking past renters, audiences and patrons our space to write us some dazzling (or at least honest) reviews on YELP. For those of you that don’t know, Yelp is a website that publishes reviews of local businesses by everyday people. The reviews can be as short as one paragraph long and need not be overly formal, just outlining your experience here and why you can’t wait to come back (that is the case, right?). If interested, please visit http://www.yelp.com/biz/house-of-yes-brooklyn and click ‘Write a Review’. Thanks in advance for calling us ‘charming’ and ‘aesthetically pleasing’.
Vagazzling and Turkish wrestling aside, this week we have a couple of close friends in hospitals in dire need of support.
Seth Miller who has been a member of the House of Yes family since the very beginning (the 11 year old boy you saw in drag dressed up as Mariah Carey in both of the Xmas shows is his son) has been diagnosed with Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This family needs support; you can donate here: http://boingboingmaternity.com/the-boing-of-life/
JellyBoy the Clown, who might singlehandedly be responsible for House of Yes going in a circus direction in the first place, is now in critical condition having suffered from smoke inhalation and 3rd degree burns while in a house fire last Friday. We will be hosting a very epic circus throw down for him on Wednesday night. Hold tight for details; in the meantime, please donate here. Usually he’d staple that money to his skin, but while he’s healing, electronic transactions are the way to go.
Oh, and then there’s always Burning Man to throw money at; our friends at Image Node are hosting, details below.
