TAKEOVER EVENT COORDINATORS
Takeover Friday was born fifteen years ago by Dan Mauney, Rodney Tucker and Rodney Hines as a way for friends to get together in a social setting. Word spread quickly and the group grew from 3 to 50 within a few weeks. The name was coined, an email list was created and the fun began.
Therapy Café, Tutto Mondo and Blue Restaurants were three of the original TOF locations. With all the excitement of organized fun, the email list surpassed the Evite specifications and the Takeover Friday website was launched. Events such as Westin Charlotte, Aria, Osso, Mint Museum, Bechtler Museum, various plays, pre-concert events, after-parties and pool parties have been several of the jammed packed events since the conception of Takeover.
Over the past fifteen years +, Takeover has been co-hosted by an all-star local celebrity list including Rodney Tucker, Rodney Hines, Tom Feldman and Chip Perry. Presently, Mauney continues to coordinate and produce the TOF events.
This year, TOF plans to take the mobile social happy hour bigger and better in 2016. Expect new venues, new ideas, new co-hosts and a new energy around Charlotte’s largest mobilizing group.
