Go Dancing @ Starting Gate

Let's dance the night away at the Starting Gate! It's also my good friend Traci's Bday- she is the one that hosted the last pool party, so a double reason to get out and have a lot of fun & make new friends. Last time I checked there was no cover.

    badly organized, no meetup sign, host did not bring anything together.

      Here's another reason I couldn't stay more than two hours other than my concern about the dogs home alone.

    I had an absolute blast! I saw a few negative comments but I have no idea why. I danced until closing. Thanks Jules - you rock girl!!

    Thank you Jules for hosting. Rick and I had a great time. The band/dance music was great!

    If only I didn't have to take care of the dogs, but anyways, I agree with Randy. This event was badly organized when I saw no meetup sign. That's another reason I couldn't stay very long in spite of its rarity. My main reason not to stay very long was that I had to get back home to the dogs home alone.

    Some of you have blocked emails so I wasn't able to give you my cell number in case you can't locate the group so if you need it just message me directly and I'll give it to you. Those signing up today that didn't receive an email:

    To locate the group: I plan to arrive at 9:00 P.M. and upon entering the establishment will meander to the bar on the right hand side ( with a balloon) and will stay there until about 9:30. If you come late we will probably have moved to the dance floor area so look for us there or text me. There is listed karaoke from 5-8 and a dj from 8-9 if you decide to come early!

  • Debbie J.

    For those who RSVP'd late yesterday and today check your emails as I'll be sending you more information about how to locate us. =)

    Just an update, regarding the music. There are various live bands but I don't know which band will be there on this Friday but more than likely top 40 club music will be played with a couple of older tunes. When the band takes a break the DJ takes over and may throw in some classic rock. There is no cover with free parking- plenty behind the actual building. It does get crowded so seating is not guaranteed especially if you come after 9 so you should either come early or be okay with standing or with spending your night on the dance floor dancing! =) I will bring a balloon so you know where the group is. The place itself is part sports bar, they have two bars, a good sized dance floor and pretty spacious. Hope this information helps!

    There is never a cover that I am aware of. And hopefully the West Coasters are playing. And you dont' even need a partner. Just get up and dance!

    They call it The Gate now days. There's no cover and it's what I consider a 'nice' dive bar! lol
