Paul met the Lindy Sisters at the bar and bought them a drink... Duh!

Nice boa!

Did You Know? - Feather boas have been documented for use as an adornment since at least 1820, but they might have been worn as early as the 17th century. Feather boas have fallen in and out of fashion many times over the years. Feather boas have had the reputation of being elegant as well as being considered campy or vulgar apparel.

Art Deco anyone??(Courtesy of Hans)

Did You Know? - Art Deco (/ˌɑrt ˈdɛkoʊ/), or Deco, is an influential visual arts design style which first appeared in France during the 1920s, flourished internationally during the 30s and 40s, then waned in the post-World War II era. It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes, and lavish ornamentation.

Deco emerged from the Interwar period when rapid industrialization was transforming culture. One of its major attributes is an embrace of technology. This distinguishes Deco from the organic motifs favored by its predecessor Art Nouveau.

Paul bought them a drink.... (Courtesy of Hans)

Did You Know? - Lynette, Loralie and Linda Lou have a heart for swing music. Masters of 1940's melodies, these ladies have been mesmerizing audiences with their amazing harmonies for many years. It all started when the girls' church hosted a vintage car show. They jumped in and put their unique talent and amazing harmonies to good use and learned some Andrews Sisters songs for the event. Before the day was over, they were booked for two paid gigs and needed to learn more material! The rest is history.

The Fan Dance

Did You Know? - A fan dance is a dance performed with one or more fans. This form has been adapted in various countries. The Korean fan dance, for example, evolved from Joseon Dynasty court dances and remains a popular form of traditional Korean dance. The Spanish or Portuguese flamenco makes dramatic use of fans.

In the West, a fan dance may be an erotic dance performance, traditionally by a woman. The performe dances while moving two large fans, typically constructed from ostrich feathers.
