Initially, there was a little hesitation from everyone, like, Oh, my God, whats going to happen? remembers Niya Diehl, general manager of Mead St. Station, about the 2009 event. (Mead St. is participating again this year.) But it was fun. We had candles on all the tables and across the bar, as well as handheld flashlights that charged when pumped. People were really into it, she adds. When we turned the lights back on, everyone was like, Nooo! Turn em off!
