I must say, this Friday’s 1920s Fedoras & Flappers party at The Drink really was the bee’s knees. On the eve of this season’s first snowfall, NPSIANs took over the ByWard Market in high fashion for one of the best rubs of the semester. It was a fabulous night filled with hotsy-totsy hoofers and giggle water.
The feedback I’ve received since Friday has been extremely positive. I want to thank everyone who came out and got into the spirit of the 1920s. I especially want to thank those who helped organize and sell tickets – Brett, Chris, Mike, and Samar.
Wondering what the highlight of the night was? It’s got to be the presence of Professor Weibust. Yes, you read that correctly. I didn’t even know she had bought a ticket! Quite the copacetic surprise!
Everyone looked smashing, but who wore it best, you ask? Well, she could not have looked more like a flapper if she tried: the bearcat award for best dressed female goes to… Rochelle Wagner! The bimbo award for best dressed male goes to… Joe Landry! Not only did he sport a fedora, he even came armed with a cane. Joe and Rochelle will be making their formal acceptance speeches later this week.
If you’re reading this and thinking, “Man, I missed out,” well, you did! Not to worry, though. I have a feeling the Social Committee will be planning another big event at The Drink.
Here’s hoping everybody had a ducky time!
