"Everyone Goes to Mick's"
(That's MY torso on Humphrey Bogart's legs!)
With new quirky little pictures and Facebook posts we are getting more and more people to join us for the dance. Patricia, the planning committee and I have asked friends to preform as part of the evenings entertainment! We have 12 acts lined up so far, with many more "possibles" in the works. Our entertainment line up looks like it has come directly from the 1940's movie "Hollywood Canteen"!
I ADORE what Lynn did here! In the movie "Casablanca" Humphrey Bogart's cafe is named "Rick's Cafe Americain" as the working title of the movie was "Everyone Goes to Rick's" (which I changed turned into the name of my blog) The same has been done here! AND as an added bonus, the palm trees on either side? They are a nod to the neon palm tress on the sign for Ricky Riccardo's "Tropicana Night Club" on "I Love Lucy"!
Speaking of "Hollywood Canteen" and WWII, Lynn was at it again with a neat Facebook party poster!
The next two weeks are going to fly by, Wizard of Oz opens THIS FRIDAY June 14th (and I'm painting sets like a mad man) and then we'll have this fantastic Dance the next week, followed by a double Eagle Scout ceremony for two of my good friends! lots to decorate and set up, so we'll all be busy, busy, busy!
I want to take this moment to say thank you to Lynn M. He has helped us so much in promoting and getting things ready for the fundraiser. I don't think I could ever say how much it means to me, but I am eternally grateful for everything you've done. I really mean it!
