80s BackSpin - Let's Dance!

It's been a long time since we did an 80s Dance Party! As usual 49 Grove will close the doors to the general public and allow us to take it over!

I used to throw these events in DC and they were always a hit. I'll be not only organizing but DJing this fun event. Gotta favorite 80s jam? Be sure to ask me to play it! Feel free to email me before the event, and I'll be sure I have it!

Get ready for an awesome night with drink specials and a lot of fun. Wear an awesome 80s outfit and your first drink is on me!

  • Start time - 6:30
  • Dress - Best 80s outfit gets drinks on me!
  • Cover - $10

Also! Don't forget to follow ADKLN on Facebook at www.facebook.com/adifferentkindofladiesnight and now Instagram @adifferentkindofladiesnight. Post pics of events you attend!

    Last night was AWESOME! We topped out at about 150 or so women! There were hoola hoopers, tamberiners and I'm pretty sure I saw someone swinging from the rafters ... literally. Thank you so much for a great night!!!!!

    Last night was my first meet-up too. It was cool. My knee disappointment was I thought everyone will dress up but I felt like I was the only one dress up beside a couple of others. Also, ppl were not as excited to talk to. It seems that everyone knew each other and I felt a little left out the scene. But two women came and talk to me and I was able to mingle with them and have a good time. I was hoping it was more easy to talk to everyone instead of just standing there for an hour until I met a friendly person.

    The crowd was diverse & very friendly. Great mix of women! My only disappointment was the music. I would have liked some R&B from the 80's

    December 28, 2013

    • maria

      All you need is to ask, Maya. Bridget listens, I am sure. R& B has some great dance music that can easily integrate with the DJ's choice list.

    I am an old timer at Bridget's events and have been to many events, that is because I believe what she offers as an Organizer is her enthusiasm, her genuin effort to make things come in place while working hard behind the scenes. A new experience, is what is the title of this meetup siad in different words. The first event of the 80ies, I put my thumb down on my friend Bridget because inexperienced as a DJ her music choices were not for dance and now I elevate Bridget to the level of DJ master in the 80'ies. Thank you DJ Bridget for last night. It was one of the best dance nights ever and I met old and new members that made me feel part of the ADKLN Comunity. Last but not least I had the time of my life and everyone present can testify to this. Happy New Year to you all and to the Best Organizer in New York!

      The bulletin states that the event is private and to look for the breakdancing lesbians. Hopefully it's still closed to general public making it simple. Good question.
