We Asked You to Pitch Us Your Ideas And This Is What You Came Up With

by / Jan. 6, 2015 3pm EST

We had a lot of fun at The Public Launch Party at Hydraulic Hearth last month (and according to these photos, it looks like you all did too). Someone on our staff had the brilliant idea of putting up an “Ideas Board,” where attendees could post some ideas that they’d like The Public to consider in the future. Some of these ideas were very helpful. Some, not so much. Here is a selection of some of our favorites, and a gallery of our favorite photos from the event too. If you’ve got some brilliant ideas of your own, please feel free to leave them in the comments section.
