Ladies & Gents,
It is our distinct pleasure to announce that we’re officially getting down at Cat’s Cradle on Valentine’s Day for the first-ever Bitter Hearts Ball- the best way to dump the frump on a
sweet seriously schmoopy day.
You can scope out more details on the Facebook event, too (http://www.facebook.com/events/425834644152896/?context=create). We’ll post the deets for advance ticket sales here as soon as we have ‘em.
Yours, In 3/4 time,
Lizzy & The Waltz Night Hooligans
We remarked with pain that the indecent foreign dance called the Waltz was introduced (we believe for the first time) at the English court on Friday last … it is quite sufficient to cast one’s eyes on the voluptuous intertwining of the limbs and close compressure on the bodies in their dance, to see that it is indeed far removed from the modest reserve which has hitherto been considered distinctive of English females.
