Dancing Liberally - Surprise Formal

Yes, I know I promised Woodstock, but that will have to wait another week. It's Witchy's surprise birthday party (No spilling the beans -- she never reads this; she just asks me) at Jal's Sanctuary. Dress up formally. I've put up free tuxes and ballgowns at the NN-Wellstone Free Store. We'll dance the night away to the fine DJing of Rocky the Yakspinner. Dick will be banned. May or may not do a contest, what do you all think? Wotchy will arrive between 9 and 10 SLT (that's 6am or 7am her time). Her actual birthday is the 27th, so wish her well that day, but don't say a word about this.

Big Bands at the Yak
Dress in your favourite 30s/40s/50s duds and swing as DJ Rocky plays all your requests. Now as forewarned is forearmed, DJ Rocky told Jane, and she quotes, "I'm pretty sure Benny Goodman did songs about muskrats, and dead zombie biker catholic school chicks". Jane called Dick Cheney to see if they needed a third in the Labour* Day hunting party...
