The brains of Austin nightlife: Henri Mazza and Greg MacLennan

If you’ve been to an Alamo Drafthouse, or the bowling/karaoke/dance floor venue by the same owners – Austin’s Highball – you know there are some seriously creative bashes that go down on an almost weekly basis. Like a Super Hero Dance Party. Mad Men Parties. Labyrinth Quote-a-Longs. Ladies of the 80’s Sing-a-Longs. More Japan game show madness than anyone ever thought humanly possible.

In short, you might get the sense that a mad, mad genius is behind all of this.

And in fact, you would be correct. Two geniuses, actually.

Next week, I’ll be interviewing Henri Mazza and Greg MacLennan, i.e. the Action Pack duo. Together, Henri and Greg organize these ridiculously cool theme parties at the Alamo Drafthouse and Highball, and even helped my friend Candace and I throw the Glam Off last month. It wouldn’t be too far off the mark to say these men have my dream job, so I thought a sit-down fawn session was only appropriate!

But this is where YOU come in. KXAN will be plugging the upcoming interview on their entertainment site,, and I believe on regular TV, too. We’ll be conducting this interview on-camera, not in a super fancy way, but quality enough for the YouTubes. And what we want to know is this:

what would you like to ask the action pack?

Here are some example questions that I thought of:

1. How did you get the most badass job ever?
2. What is the best party you’ve ever thrown? (Besides the Glam Off, duh!)
3. What’s the nuttiest thing you’ve ever seen go down at one of your bashes?
4. Have you ever considered a Golden Girls theme party?  (I call Blanche).
Submit your questions by next Monday, and I’ll ask them on-camera. Can’t wait to hear the ridonkulous things you guys come up with.
