Yes it was a good party, even when one of the dancers disappeared
there was a volunteer from the audience that took over her job( and
she was much better looking).  I even got to use my mad AV skillz, I
had a flashlight.  On a more serious note I lost my phone in that
room, some one found it turned it in to one of the pimps and when I
retraced my drunken steps I got my phone back and nothing bad had
happened to it.  It was definitely nice to be partying with the
adults.  You guys rocked.  I will try to get in again next year and I
will bring my flashlight.
