Ou Sont Les Dinner Dances?

Not to get all George Carlin on you, but you know what you don't hear a lot about anymore?

Dinner Dances.

When I was a kid, my parents were always (or, at least twice a year) getting dressed up to go out to a Dinner Dance, usually of the corporate (environmental engineers party hard!) or synagogue function (jews party harder!) variety.

I have never, unless I've blacked it out, been to a Dinner Dance. Do they still exist?

Dinner dances are still around nyc.

but I've never been, so I can't vouch for how many enviro-engineers you'll find cutting a rug.

Oh Bex, dinner dances do indeed exist... in the glamorous world of fundraising we prefer to use words like "Ball" or "Gala"
