Feature Article: The Swanky Cicada Club: Dinner and Dancing

I’ll tell you what. I wish every city I visited had a place like the Cicada Club, a Sunday night supper club happening at the Oviatt building on Olive St. in Los Angeles.

I am so so glad I found out about this venue for my trip to LA and we were able to take in  the fabulous dine and dance and show experience.

The Oviatt building is a 1928 art deco former department store, with original Lalique decorative glass and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and now an event space. My cousins said they went to a wedding there. It has its own myspace page and The Cicada Club has a facebook fan club.  Read more >>

Feature Article: Reading, PA Mid Atlantic Air Museum’s World War II Weekend

Spent the weekend in Reading, PA at the Mid Atlantic Air Museum’s   World War II weekend, not for the vintage plane rides or military memorabilia show but to dance to the Swing Fever Band on Saturday night, their Glen Miller style band. Everyone was dressed in uniform and/ or 40s dresses, hats and gloves. I wore a vintage blouse, a swing skirt and red red lipstick. Next time, I’ll remember to add short gloves, a hat with a veil and seamed stockings, maybe a flower in my hair. Note to self: Ask mom for the mink shrug, the one which closes around the neck with the mink head biting its tail. How could I have forgotten to at least add a pearl necklace!  Read more >>
