    FIRST, LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE DANCING:
    For those that have never been, Dance Journey is both amazing and rather
    strange! From a brainiac perspective, it is fascinating to watch this
    'happening” that has been going on every Friday for many decades. : )
    The mix of people and DJ's and the fact that there are TWO rooms with
    different types of music in each makes it really unique. One room is mostly
    fast-ish dance music, one room is slow, and this week the slow music room has
    LIVE music (which is truly fantastic!!!). This is a magical (or at
    least interesting) way to spend a Friday night, especially if you love
    good music and love to dance. Free style- so whatever you do is fine!
    There are no steps to learn or rules to follow, just listen to the
    music and dance or sit or stand or whatever feels right. : )
    (see http://www.danceJourney.org/index.php)

    Clothing is what you would wear to a yoga class, as in COMFORTABLE
    and not fancy is the norm (sweats are fine, but wear layers, as it
    will get warmer over time). Here is something unique-- they don't even
    allow shoes on the dance floor! (Socks are fine). To keep it from
    getting crazy they also have a policy against drinking at the venue
    (fine if you do it before hand), and fragrances (yes, that means no
    perfume or cologne). It's a bit over the top, but in a crowded room
    its nice to not have to worry for those with allergies. : )

    That said, it will be very hard to find each other there so.
    We will meet at Crepe Vine at 5600 College Ave in Oakland at 7:45 pm
    to grab food (see http://www.crepevine.com/) and then head off (car
    pool is the way to go) to dance Journey from there. : )
    I will be wearing all black except for a puffy dark purple coat
    and/or a dark purple purse. We will grab food, chat a bit, and then
    head off to dance. (If you just want to come to eat, that is fine too.
    If you just want to come to dance, I can't guarantee you will find us
    there, but that is also OK if you are willing to risk not finding the
    group).

    More On the Dancing:
    The DJ this Friday will be EXCELLENT. He will be in one room, and in
    another room will live music slow-ish and mellow. $15 at the door, but
    if you are a newby, you can get a free pass online. You just have to
    print it out and bring it to get the discount (Google Dance Journey to
    get the details).  The entry fee lets you into both rooms and you can
    move back and
    forth from one room to another throughout the night. That said, you
    must bring $15 cash (they do have change but they do not take checks
    or credit cards).

    Sorry about the short notice! A friend I was going with bailed last
    minute and I decided to try to recruit some new people to some along
    this week. : )

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
