Friday Night Social “Welcome to the Jazz Age”

Picture1aaaFriday Night Social: We are having so much fun putting together our Friday Night Social that you won’t be able to help enjoying yourself. The overall theme is “Welcome to the Jazz Age”. It is where you’re invited to come see the infamous “Blind Tiger”. A term taken straight from the 1920’s era of prohibition for those illegal gin joints (also referred to as a speakeasy), such establishments came into prominence in the United States between the years1920–1933, which sets the atmosphere for this party.

We’re calling our Blind Tiger “The Pirates Cove” and in keeping with the theme, featured will be a cash bar that will serve cocktails in coffee cups in addition to a buffet.

Opening ceremonies will include an onstage sketch where you will be introduced the Con-Co Chairs and Vice Chair who are also founding members of “The Pirates of the Carolinas Costumers Guild” who will be your hosts for the evening as well as the first appearance of Miss Janet Wilson Anderson as a special Costume-Con 33 guest.

jazzsceneJoin us as we pay homage to those post WW-I years of Prohibition, as we work to recreate the ambience of a typical 1920′s speakeasy, when the skirts were shorter, the music was hotter, and we all were (to quote a line from the Broadway show Chicago) “going to hell in a fast car, and making it Hot!”

Of course this is Costume-Con, so who knows who you might run across at this Friday Night Social. Could be anyone from a 1920′s gangster or flapper to Scarlett O’Hara-Hamilton-Kennedy-Butler, to the Pirate Captain Blackbeard himself.

Oh and BTW you will need to know the “Password” to enter.
