First Night

.
First night 2011-12-31 4

The lead photo in Monday's post was from First Night, The Lou's no-booze public New Year's Eve party. They say that's family friendly. Hmm. Do you hate your family if you have a glass of champagne at midnight? Well, the point is that nobody gets rowdy, which is fine.

Saturday night's temperature was shockingly warm for December 31 (climatologists take note) and the area was absolutely packed. We went to performances that were not too crowded or venues where we knew you could move around. The upstairs ballroom at the marvelous Sheldon Concert Hall was the headquarters for Latin music. This shot is from the performance by Samba Bom, playing Brazilian music that gets you out of your chair. After the show, the dancer above gave a group lesson. We'll get to that soon.

The group lesson by the dancer sounds interesting. And that portrait of her is a good one.

I don't mind a glass of champagne, but I agree it's better to keep things un- rowdy. I hope that lady didn't get too cold! What were the temps like this new years eve?

Voluptuous pink lady...which reminds me of another kind of Pink Lady that you couldn't consume at the no-booze party.
