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.

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.
