The summer's answer to our outlandishly popular winter underwear party! We'll decorate Sundance Saloon like a day at the beach. Here's your chance to dance in your Speedos, bikinis, or whatever beachwear you fancy. We'll have a special free coat check (clothes check?) available.
Note that participation in the beach party is totally optional. Lots of folks will be in regular dress. If you're a little shy but still want to participate, consider beach shorts and a T-shirt, or a wrap. We'll have a normal night of music and dance, so please come and enjoy yourself. And watch those heels on the sand!
