You can take the girl out of the party, but you can't take the party out of the girl.
This, my parents know all too well.
Of their three daughters, I am definitely the most adventurous, the biggest dreamer, the most "wild." I love a good time - and can usually make any situation fun.
Thankfully, I'm not going to have to work too hard at making the Equinox Ball over the top.
Tonight marks the start of Cincinnati PRIDE, a celebration of individuality and diversity. The Queen City's gay community champions this weekend as an occasion to celebrate people of all walks of life, and I am happy to join in on the parade (quite literally, as you'll read on).
The Equinox Ball on Saturday night is the dressed up and celebrating spectacularly portion of the weekend. I agreed to volunteer at the event, which means I'll be working the door for an hour or so. What a fun way to welcome a great group of people and get an opportunity to check out the fabulous duds on this crowd that is always dressed to the nines.
Speaking of dressed to the nines - I initially was thinking semi-formal when I heard about this ball. I was quickly informed that this is the place where I'm likely to see over the top and awesome instead of staid and Black Tie.
Which brings me to my fun dilemma. What does a girl wear when she's invited to wear "club wear" and wants to impress a crowd?
I have been known to wear a tube top made out of saran wrap, and think this could be the perfect venue for such a getup.
Pull out your most sparkling, spectacular, feathered fabulous duds and join me for an awesome night of dancing and celebration.
I may just have some extra saran wrap on hand, if you need it.
The Equinox Ball is from 10pm to 2am on Saturday, July 3 at Duke Energy Center. Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the door, and I'm told the evening will be worth every penny.
If you can't make it to the Ball, join me (and other CincyPAC board members) at the Cincinnati PRIDE parade, Sunday at 11am at Fifth St. and Fountain Square. The parade will be followed by a festival that lasts until 9:30pm, complete with fireworks.
