The Party

It wasn’t as good as last year. I got us totally lost getting there. I hate driving in DC. I think the streets were laid out by dropping a bunch of tinkertoys on a map and calling it a day. To go about 80 miles roundtrip, we went 125. We went across the Key Bridge four times going, and thankfully only once on the way home (I swallowed my pride and bought a map on our second trip through McLean).

Ok, other than getting absolutely lost, the party was a little flat compared to last year. All the bands were lame cover bands with a slight twist. There were slight cover bands in techno, swing, blues and funk. They all covered the same songs. I think they were actually the same bands with one different instrument. Weird.

The rooms were themed with colors instead of actual themes. Last year, they did TV Shows, which rocked. The themes were actually themes, and each room had different things to do in it.

I’m praying that next year, they move the party back out to the suburbs to a larger location like last year.
