2nd Rock and Roll Party

  • March 22, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I believe in FULL-DISCLOSURE, so there are no surprises.  

First, there are 30 people attending and I only have seating for 23.  Therefore, we're going to have to rotate seating.

Second, because I'm moving all my tables to make room for dancing, serving the food, especially snacks and appetizers will be awkward.  There will be no tables spread out around the room for chips, dip, etc.

Third, There is enough room for everyone, but it will be crowded.  If you're an introvert like me, the recreation room (with pool table) in the basement will be available to give you some breathing space.

My primary goal is for everyone to have fun.  Participation in the games or activities I have planned are optional ... If you don't want to play, please don't feel pressured.

Finally, if anyone imbibes a little too much, I have an extra bed and several blow-up mattresses ... I don't want anyone driving when they shouldn't be.


Come join us for a second trip back to the 50s ... actually the late 50's to early 60s.  The music for our first trip back focused on the late 50s with some 60's; this trip will focus on the early 60's with some late 50's. 

It will be an evening of food, fun, conversation and other activities; Name that Tune, Karoke, Song Trivia, and Dance Trivia.  I'll be moving the dining room table out of the dining room and roll-up the living room rug to make some room for limited dancing.

The cost to attend is a smile, a willingness to have fun and either a plate of food or a bottle of wine. The list below is what I believe people have agreed to bring.  I would prefer that those people who agreed to a general category would provide me more specificity - what are you actually bringing.

Lorik Burton - Appetizers

Chris Jorgensen - Appetizers

Deborah Lawrimore - Appetizers

Ollie Allen - Appetizers

Sandy - Appetizers

Cathey - Brownies & wine

Ellen - Wine

Harvey Lipsher - Wine

Helen - Wine

Kay - Wine

Marja - Wine

Nicholas - Wine

Gloria Stachard - Wine & prosciutto & mozz rolls

 I have numerous serving trays and multiple warmers, but I need to know your requirements.  Only Diane has provided me her requirements.  You may use my oven to warm or cook foods, but if you need to use the oven, please contact me off-line to make arrangements.

50s or 60s outfits are encouraged but not required. 

This meetup is highly desired and there are four people on the wait list, so if you find you can't attend, PLEASE change your RSVP as soon as you know, so someone on the waitlist can attend.  I'm going to be busy preparing for the party Friday night and all day Saturday and won't have sufficient time to check the RSVPs change someone's status.

Parking is limited at my place, I highly encourage carpooling.

    I did it again last night!!!!!!!!! Went to Debbie's 2nd R&R Party. Debbie is the greatest. She has opened her house and her heart twice to make a group of us think, act and feel like the teenagers we still are at heart. By the way Debbie, I went back and ate a couple of your corn flakes and peanut butter candies. Loved them. Only sweets I ate last night.
    Enjoy this meetup group - my primary purpose of joining was to meet and socialize with people close to my age. I have not been disappointed. Every event I go to, I meet a few more "young at heart" men and women that I have enjoyed meeting. Being with a group that love the 50's and 60's music, know how to laugh and have fun - now, that's the way to go!!!!!

    What a great party Debbie!! Thank you for hosting!! Thank you to everyone who brought food, drinks, and a party attitude. Already asking is when the next one?

    March 23, 2014

  • Debbie H.

    Ok ... The party aftermath ... I have an extra silver bowl that I think belongs to Diane. An extra cookie sheet that I think is Valerie's ... And a spatula that is I'm guessing maybe Valerie's. A white plastic bowl that came with stuffed tomato's ... No idea. Really big thanks to everyone who started cleaning the dishes and equipment ... It really, really helped me a lot ... Unfortunately, it's 1:30 and I'm still too keyed up to go to sleep ... I had a fantastic time ... My thanks to everyone who came ... You made it a great party ...

    Hey Debbie.. Why is everyone pooling when it looks like you have a big church parking lot at the entrance of your place? Is this off limit to park in? It looks like it is only a short walk of 300 yds or less... Can we park there? Thanks

    March 21, 2014

    • Debbie H.

      Yes, it is a short walk in nice weather ... Which is being predicted for tomorrow. But there should be plenty of parking around the circle.

    Hi all. I am just returning from about a month of traveling. Planning to attend Saturday. Anyone wanting to ride share, we could meet at the Giant grocery story in West Springfield at Old Keene Mill Road and Rolling road about 5:30 PM or so. Let me know who is interested.

    Debbie, I just received a message from Debbie Lawrimore who wants me to give you a message. She has hurt her back and wants to change her RSVP to NO, but she is not able to change it and has no way of contacting you. She is very sorry about it and missing the party. Please change her RSVP to NO for her. Lorik

      Could I bum a ride one more time ?!

      March 20, 2014

  • Maggie W.

    I live about 3 miles from Debbie. I was thinking that because of the parking shortage, I might take a taxi to her home. If anyone wants to come to my home and go in the taxi with me, that might work. I will pay for the taxi.

    March 18, 2014

    • Kay

      Maggie, I might take you up on sharing a taxi will get back to you later this week. Thanks for the suggestion.

      March 19, 2014

    • Debbie H.

      Maggie and Kay, believe me there is plenty of parking ... There is no need to take a taxi.

    Kay, I am coming from Beltsville and will most likely come around the beltway past Montgomery Co., is there a place near the SS 95 exit we could meet and carpool from there?

    Anyone coming from Montgomery Co Maryland that would like to carpool?
