Semi formal attire is not madatory, don't let it keep you away from the event!

sorry you guys can't make it.....but don't worry we will have enough fun for you as well

looks like the weather is starting to look brighter.......so we'll have more incentive to think about having fun in May and getting dressed up for our event

we haven't had any feedback regarding a clothes swap get together........but that's okay......i was just looking for a reason for a get together

i'm gonna wait a bit longer before i decide on either getting a dress or recycling an old one

don't forget to sign up people.......we will have some prizes to be won

I had two girls from here that wanted to go ..but they also thought it was sounding too "fussy" ,,as i did,,???


oh geez....

you DO NOT have to get dressed up!!!!

but... that said...

how many times do we have these days to wear something other than jeans when we go out? what's wrong with putting on a nice dress and going dancing?

that's why we wanted to have a semi-formal!

we also thought it was the same time of year that all the high school kids are getting dolled-up for their nights on the town and why shouldn't us grown-ups get to have a blast doing the same.

i was at Goodwill on Horton today to poke around furniture and at the front of the store was a whole rack of party dresses - including about half a dozen black and white print sheath-style dresses that would be GREAT for a night on the town! you don't have to spend a lot to find something cool to wear - and who knows what use you could get out of it!

It is a bar, and you will need proper ID. Not sure if they accept health card or not.

As Divine said, it is not mandatory for you to dress up. Some of us like to have an extra chance to get all dolled up, but if it's not your thing, thats ok too.

Everyone getting ready to party???? Let's pray for nice weather

secretagentman08.......you won't be turned away if you're wearing jeans. if you feel comfortable that way then do it

like syllie said some of us like opportunities to get dressed up because we don't get to do it often enough. most of us don't live that kind of life style where we are going to cocktail parties or the theater and operas

so if you're worried about having to dress up.......don't and just come out and have a fun time

Qadeshnow............good for you girl...and of course you can come alone. you will find that quite a few of us are in the same boat but we still manage to keep the house rocking

that is one thing i have noticed......single women still have a good time when they go out. i wonder if the men can say the same thing......just curious

...is it okay to come alone?


of course!

if anyone is worried about coming to the dance alone, please send an email to Angel, Syl or i and let us know. we will try to introduce you around to the people we already know.

and we are planning an ice-breaker game designed to get y'all to mingle.



also, if there's a special fish you have your eye on who will be at the event and you don't have the nerve to contact them yourself, let me know. i'll play matchmaker at the event and make the introductions!!!

Not sur eif I am coming to this event. I'm moving into my new place the weekend after which means a lot of packing needs to get done before the move. I also think that the live band thing isn't my deal. I don't do well with live bands. I'll see how things are closer to the event date though.

Even though I no longer live in London, for a while anyway, I feel a strong pull for it and the friends I have made there. I will try to make it to the Spring thing and I have heard RADIO before. They alone could be worth the trip.

Haven't signed up yet due to the uncertainty, but I want to get there.

How about semi/semi-formal? I hate ties.
