Last night we went to a barn dance on the Vashon.
All four of us got gussied up and headed out.
Okay, we didn't really get gussied up but plenty of attendees had on their best western wear.
I'll admit I was nervous.
Dancing in front of people, in public with our kids. Spending $30 and not being sure if we will have fun. It is a bit of a risk for two lousy dancers like ourselves.
In an old warehouse or a series of warehouses that is now the "open space for arts and community" we danced into the night and had a blast. (okay into the night isn't quite true it was from about 6:30-9pm but as band notes 9 is late on Vashon!)
It was super kid friendly but had an awesome mix of young people and old people and a bunch in the middle. Their was live music and beer and had no sense of pretension at all. It was much better than most wedding receptions I've been to because everyone there wanted to dance and listen to music- so even though we terrible dancers it didn't matter because many people were dancing yet the large space allowed for the dance-floor to not feel crowded.
We had a great time.
I am falling in love with this place.
