Diner Gang

Every other Friday or so I go to the swing dance that happens in Whippany. It's a lot of fun because it attracts probably around 80 - 100 people each time, and the space is nice and large. Plus there are always goodies to munch on, like cheese and crackers, cookies, celery sticks, snap peas, carrots and little grape tomatoes. This time there was even a nice big pumpkin pie! The music is DJ'd and the dancers come in all varieties - all ages from teens to retired folks, and ability levels from beginners to advanced.

The dance lasts for about three and a half hours, ending at midnight. Afterwards, a bunch of us go to a nearby diner for more eats and just to hang out and get to know each other off the dance floor a little. Usually there are around ten or so of us, but this week we had an especially large group of nineteen. Our table nearly stretched from one side of the diner all the way to the other. :)

Man - I miss nights like that. I've been dancing once in the past two years, at the Denver Exchange, and that wasn't even that good. I miss my East Coast peeps.
