They had one of these in Philadelphia last evening--and it was a damn nuisance. It was held on the plaza on the west side of City Hall, which made it, to say the least, a great inconvenience at rush hour to people who ordinarily use the subway entrance on the west side of City Hall. Like me. ...

I did see one very cute young guy with an olive complexion and scruff, and I wondered where he got the white suit.

I guess it can be annoying Jeff--they seem to have a thing about it doing it on a weekday evening (to get yourself out of the realm of the everyday) and (for me) super annoying--they never tell you WHERE the event is set--until the last minute. People congregate in one location, then (with your bags of stuff at the ready) sprint to the final destination. Exciting for some, but bothersome to others.

Oh well!   ::) ::)

So,  it's like a flashmob, but in addition to the music and dancing there's food and drink, and  everyone wears white?


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I remember you mentioning that before. Actually, you could say I'm making an assumption about the location, because the police had the whole plaza blocked off with the portable fences they use for crowd control when there is a parade. But I also heard a police officer tell some that the plaza was closed for a special event.

I couldn't do it. I might try a diner en noir, because black is so slimming. ...

I agree with you Jeff, but not because of black being slimming.   Because I know whenever I wear white, I manage to spill something on it.  at least with black, the stain wouldn't show!   :laugh:
