Join us for a night on the town with the Lost Generation in swinging 1920's Paris.  The utterly exquisite Baguette Quartette plays an evening of vintage Bal Musette dance music: Their romantic waltzes are to die for, but the band is equally famous for their lively javas (mazurka waltzes), one-steps, fox trots, tangos, sambas, mixers, and even an occasional French polka.  The mixers will be taught and called and there will be a 7pm pre-ball workshop in the intimate Bal Musette style of dance!

At intermission the lovely Sara Klotz de Aguilar of Sara & Swingtime will play some of that new American music - Le Swing, Les Blues, and The Charleston - that used to be banned in clubs like this!

1920's or 30's costume or vintage or modern evening dress is admired but not required.  Artists, writers, movie stars, apaches, slumming aristocrats and plutocrats - even dangerous Apaches (if they check their weapons at the door or leave them at home)

The event features a no-host bar, a light snack buffet (your potluck finger-food contributions will be appreciated), and a salon for conversation and photography.
