Cheers to All--And We're Just Beginning!

Had a blast at Jade Court last night as our families met our friends. And Carol the owner gave me such a wonderful dress!

Tonight there's Greek Islands, 200 S. Halsted, at 8 p.m. and then Sidetrack, 3349 N. Halsted, Cherry Room, at 10:30 p.m., so still a ton of partying to do before the big day!
