Crazy Fun!!

Black Tie Beach . . . a new concept to my little brain.   If you've never heard of it (and I hope I'm not the only one), here is how they describe themselves - -

Black Tie Beach is an annual event staged by Improv Everywhere in August. A diverse group of people of all ages spend a day at the beach wearing black tie attire. Participants enter the beach separately in small grounds and proceed to sunbathe, play games, and swim in the ocean, all in formal wear. Participants are instructed to find cheap tuxedos and ball gowns at thrift stores for the occasion.
 
Okay, I really want to do it.  I watched a video of it yesterday on the internet,.  You can watch it here - - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgeCPQm0iiQ.   It just made me smile!   I felt happy watching it.  And now I want to do it.   Anyone want to join me?
 

 
 
I wanna do something crazy fun!!

  11. I don't live near the ocean, but it would be cool to do this at one of the zillions of lakes in Michigan, right? I think it would be a riot!

  13. Hey thanks for giving that link.
    I wonder if there is any one who will not smile after watching that.
    Like some one commented there "I WILL get to NY to participate one of your events one day, if its the last thing I do :)

  15. Hmmm, nowadays, I'd probably feel more comfortable wearing a long dress at the beach than I would wearing a bathing suit!

  16. Haha! I know exactly what you mean - bathing suits are evil!
