After Party

In keeping with tradition, I will again be hosting a reunion "after party" at the Residence Inn by Marriott on Howe Avenue, near Arden. The hotel is a quick cab ride from the Dante Club and could be a good location for out-of-towners who need a place to stay. The rooms are affordable and range from studios to suites. However, availability is limited so I would suggest making room reservations sooner than later.

My lovely co-hosts for the "after party" are best buds Nancy Patton, Karen Yoder Ensley and Patti Thomas Kraushar. On behalf of the girls, I'd like to extend an invitation to everyone who's attending the reunion. If you want to keep the party going, this is the place! We'll provide light snacks, but would ask that everyone please bring their own beverages to share for the open bar...including bottled water.

We've reserved a penthouse that has a large living area and full kitchen. I don't know the room number yet, but will provide it at the reunion.

I hope everyone can come. Let's show the world, and ourselves, that 58 year olds still know how to party! We can check into the Betty Ford Center the next day ;-)

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
