Thanks to everyone at Escape Bar and Grill for accommodating us last night. It turned out to be a really fun time. The DJ, James, did a great job playing our music and helping fix up the floor so we could dance. Most people really liked the venue....maybe we'll go back with a better plan.
Here's what happened: The Norse Hall had a fancy Gala fund raiser booked last night. It's been on the schedule all year but we overlooked the blackout day. So, when we arrived last night we discovered that we couldn't dance there. Everyone pulled together to find us a new space for the evening. Ra came up with the brilliant suggestion that we go to Escape and it was a really cool space with great people and a nice floor. The floor was small but we made do. Hopefully we can go back when there are fewer tables on our dance floor and it'll be that much better.
Thanks for everyone's flexibility and enthusiasm.
