Year over year this keeps getting better and better. Formerly at the Music Center, they moved Dance Downtown to the lawn at Grand Park in front of City Hall to accommodate the huge crowds who are ready to get down on a Friday night. Disco is my personal favorite, the music is happening and the instructor is fantastic.

It Thursday  night and you've finally  unwound after  a stressful day at work and now it's time for that late night drink, when... the phone  rings  and it's your significant  other asking you if everything  is all set for tomorrow.  You, not wanting to sound like you absolutely  no idea what they're talking about, say, " but of course.  Do you think I'd forget?  But its a secret and you'll find out tomorrow."  

After they hang  up  you run to your calendar  and start scrolling, oh. It's our anniversary, their birthday, or friends coming in from  out of town, whatever it is, you forgot.  Have no fear, that's why your reading  this,  because every Friday  until September 2 , 2016 the Music Center throws their free Dance Downtown  Fridays.   A fun filled  night of music, dancing, family  and friends  eating  and having a blast.  This Friday August  19 is Samba Night, next week  they'll  have a dj, and the best and most fun night, September  2...Disco Night.  Just follow these instructions:

1. Get wine.  Lots of wine and glasses - please, Nice ones, and a corkscrew, and bottled  water.

2. Order food from somewhere  near your job -  appetizers, salad, main course  - one meat, one veggie, and a dessert.

3.  Get some nice bags to pack everything  in there  plus  a tablecloth, plates, forks, napkins, a knife, a vase and flower's  that you so thoughtfully bought earlier  at the Flower Mart.

4.  Now head to the Music Center before 7:00pm - I'm  usually  there at 4 or 5 to get the best tables, I get two and put them together  with enough chair's. Set up everything  so when everyone  gets there they'll be totally  in awe of you foresight  to plan such a wonderful  evening .  You can thank me later.
