"Handkerchiefs, Heels, & Hangovers... A Night At The Cotton Club"
This February 19th, YEBies will have its inaugural Black History Month semiformal affair at The 201 Lounge in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC. As we get ready to re-launch the new site, this night of fun and camaraderie is in memory of the 1920's renaissance and the culture and style it cultivated and left us with. We felt inspired by the great events of the past held at the legendary Cotton Club, Savoy Ballroom, and venues alike from Harlem, New York to Washington DC to create this special occasion. We want people to come out ready to dance, network, drink, socialize, and most importantly have fun. Like our previous events, a portion of the proceeds will go to a charitable cause. For this event, a portion of the funds will go towards a teacher's scholarship at the Cape Mount Association; helping to pay tuition for future teachers in Liberia, West Africa. This will definitely be a night to remember as we take a trip back in time. The Section 8 Band will provide live music throughout the night and deejay D-Nice's renowned protégé, DJ Spicoli of DCtoBC will be on the turntables. The dress code for this event is 1920's /semiformal. The dress code will be enforced in other to create the ultimate experience. I highly recommend buying tickets in advance if you have intentions on attending.
I’m will be giving away a ticket EVERY FRIDAY from now until the event to loyal YEBIES readers and supports via twitter. To win free tickets this is what you'll have to do:
2. Retweet this either the old or new way.
