After 6 months of planning, saving, preparing, dreaming and doing. The day finally came June 19th! I woke up around 8:30 and immediately started setting up tables and chairs, icing down drinks, strategically placing flamingos through out the Drive-In. My friend Brittani was the first to arrive right around 2:00. She had been given the job of making the official "As Time Goes By" Cake (Brittani is the Casablanca's in-house pastry chef) Just look at the wonderful job she did!
I cannot describe in words the look on the face of the gate keeper when all 22 of us rolled up to the gate dresses to the nines in 1950's paraphernalia at 5:45...but if i had to try id say the word would be Priceless. I can only imagine what she thought, it literally looked like we had all come through a time warp and stepped right out of the summer of 1956.
After everyone had bought their gate pass, we headed down to the CH&R for a group picture, ( and quite possibly the most historic picture to date)
As you can tell it was a fierce competiton but our winner Kristen victorious holds her trophy dear!
Tune in tomorrow for par 2 of 7!
