  • ***A comment about this event post.***
    I realize dinner and dancing have nothing to do with the outdoors let alone hiking. But I wanted to post here a time or two to make the "Let's Take a Hike..." meetup community aware of a hopefully recurring event I'm trying to get started on the Imagine meetup page. For those of you who are unaware, "Lets Take a Hike..." and Imagine are sister meetup groups of each other run by basically the same people. I'm only gonna post this event here a time or two so if you have an interest in this event going forward, you'll have to join the Imagine meetup group if you don't already belong. 

    Thanks for your time

    Come join your fellow Imaginators for dinner, swing dancing and great fellowship. To start out, we'll meet at the Bungalow Lakehouse (46116 Lake Center Plaza, Sterling, VA 20165) for dinner. Then at around 7:00, we'll head to the Colvin Run Dance Hall (10201 Colvin Run Rd, Great Falls, VA) for the Saturday Dance. Following is more info from the Colvin Run Saturday meetup. Please note that there is a $15 cover at Colvin Run. 
    Here's the lineup: 
    7:00 – 8:30 pm – beginner West Coast Swing 
    8:30 – 11:30 pm – Dancing to a variety of great dance music suitable for all kinds of dancing: Waltz, Rumba, Cha Cha, Foxtrot. East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Hustle, Country, name it!

    $15 cover charge includes lessons, dancing, and refreshments 
    no prior experience needed • everyone is welcome 
    In spite of being a beginner, I wanted to see if there are any other social dancing wannabe's out in Imagine land other then myself and this seemed like a good way to find out;-) All levels are welcome, from beginner like myself to seasoned veteran. Depending on interest, I'd be happy to make this a regular meetup for my fellow Imaginators.

    Hi Everyone,

    Between the Imagine and "Lets Take a Hike..." meetup groups, we have 6 people signed up for the first dinner & swing dancing meetup this Sat. I've had a few others tell me they're interested but just couldn't make it Sat. I'll probably toss this event out once a month for a while and see what happens. Remember that this event will only be posted to LTaHFS maybe 1 or 2 more times. After that it's strictly an Imagine meetup group event.

    We'll just meet in bar area which is to the left of the main entrance. Remember that there is a $15 cover at Colvin Run. Non- alcoholic refreshments are included. As an FYI, they don't mind if you bring your own refreshments as long as you don't get carried away with it.

    See you Sat at 6:00


    PS - I grow a full beard during the winter months. It feels comfy when I'm out side in the cold:-). Just look for the blond haired guy with a bread.

    Hmm... wonder if anyone knows where I got that from:-0
