LADIES SWING THE BLUES!

WORLD PREMIERE

*****on DCMetroTheaterArts: "Four jazz divas played by four fabulous actresses and singers – Roz White (Billie Holiday); Lori Williams (Ella Fitzgerald); Yvette Spears (Sarah Vaughan)...All the songs were hits....there is a frenetic intensity exemplified by the constant movement of the five actors in a small space, the continuous melodic sounds of a highly skilled supportive quartet, the choices of mostly loud, gutsy up tempo songs...

MEET AT THE THEATRE BY 2:15 PM:

Because the seating is “general admission”- we need to be at the theatre by 2:15 PM, so we can get in line before the other patrons arrive, so we can get into the theatre first and sit in the center seats. If you come early, you will get the parking spots in the parking lot and not have to search for street parking. You can leave your car in the parking lot or on the street until dinner is over. We will walk back to the theatre after dinner to make sure that everyone gets back into their cars.

WALKING TO THAILAND ON ROYAL STREET AFTER THE SHOW
The restaurant is at 835 North Royal Street at Montgomery Avenue. The phone number is (703)[masked]. We will meet outside the front door and will walk to the restaurant - a 10 minute walk. If you need to drive, you should be able to find a parking space across the street from the restaurant. Remember, you can leave your car at the theatre until dinner is over, and we will walk back to the theatre after dinner.

Please remember that it's important for the reputation of OUR GROUP to show up to dinner if you made a reservation with me. We are taking over this entire small restaurant tomorrow during their dinner rush.

__
SEATING AT THE RESTAURANT
.
We will have small tables of no more than 6 people. This will make socializing with the group much easier and hopefully you will make new friends at your table. It will also help you pay the check very quickly.
__
PAYING THE CHECK
Please bring cash to pay for your meal. The restaurant has asked that we pay with cash and only one credit card per table. If someone at the table wants to put the entire bill on his/her credit card - that’s fine.

MENU
If you want to know how much cash to bring, take a look at the menu for prices.

There will be one check per tableYou will pay for what you order and drink, and will not be splitting the check. Please add 30% to the amount of your order and that will pay for the group gratuity and the VA taxes. If you see at the end that you have some extra money left, you can decide to add it in, or distribute it back to the members of your table. I have been using this method for paying the check for 21 years with The Ushers - and it always works quickly.

See you on March 17th!

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.
