Like most house parties, Henny Palooza started as a small gathering of friends at the residence of founder, Kameron McCullough. The idea was simple — bring a bottle of the popular cognac Hennessy and/or a box of chicken. The beverage and food pairing was genius. After a few text messages, emails and tweets, word quickly spread. 140 guests and 57 Hennessy bottles later, Henny Palooza was created.
