Okay. This is the rain-check-make-up-skate we promised when we had to cancel the Nov 1 skate. The theme?... It's the Rescheduled Spooky Rave XV / Day of the Dead make up skate and we don't even know what that means...
So it's costume optional (not to be confused with clothing optional).
We are going to end the skate in Lincoln Park. Kirsten has graciously invited us up to her and Cory's new digs on Arlington Place where we will order in some food after the skate. (Thank you Kirsten!)
