Sunday evening (Feb. 17). Most people loved to play “Dress Up” when they were kids – and we still do! After dinner, put on your favorite costume and “strut your hour upon the stage”! Costume parties have always been very popular at RGs. We will be in the room next to Hospitality, and have prizes for the following: Most Creative, Most Realistic, Best Famous Character, Sexiest, Best Animal Character, Best Historical Character. Be there!
Saturday Stand-Up, an Evening of Comedy
Samantha Hale, filmmaker and stand-up comedian, is incredibly grateful to have had her first film premiere on the Documentary Channel, and is currently working on her second feature on the connection between music and love. When not working on her films, she is on the stage, having performed in such venues as The Hollywood Improv, Flappers, The San Francisco Regency Ballroom, and the World Famous Comedy Store among others. She is also proud to be Alan Hale's (The Skipper from Gilligan's Island) granddaughter.
Friday Night Pub Crawl
Join me in the hotel lobby for the pub crawl. $5 each for the privilege of having a designated driver. The venerable Doug Walker will keep us safe through our beer soaked adventures. First stop will be around 8PM, www.brouwerijwest.com (Don’t worry, I can’t pronounce it either) for $4 handcrafted beers in their tasting room. Food Trucks may be available and outside food is ok. Plenty of tables and seating to sit back, relax and enjoy a flight of their world-class beers. After that, we will cruise on over to 6th and 7th Street to take our pick of the 7 or so bars there.
