⚡M E E T-UP | Join us at @bigboxkaraoke tomorrow night at 5:30 pm for an EPIC @nwagirlgang Meet-Up! . . M E E T Mailena @mailenaurso , owner of @bigboxkaraoke ! Mailena is originally from Van Buren and moved back to Fayetteville in 2011, after living in Japan and Chicago. Her dream has always been to own her own private suite karaoke bar and restaurant. After 10 years in the making, she and her husband finally opened Big Box Karaoke on New Year's Eve! They have a rescue Schnoodle, "Sammy", and two sweet kiddos that keep them on their toes. At 9 months, their daughter was diagnosed with several food allergies including a life threatening peanut allergy. It's been a challenge, but they are learning every day how to live with these allergies. She recently created a fun, safe, inclusive, and allergy-friendly Halloween event called "Be(A)ware". In partnership with Hedberg Allergy & Asthma, the event supported food allergy awareness and research. When she’s not working, Mailena loves spending time with her family, enjoying everything that NWA has to offer! One of their favorite things to do is go to Ponca, hike, and splash around in the Buffalo River! Come meet Mailena IN REAL LIFE tomorrow night!!! #NWAGG #nwagirlgang
