I was truly shocked that our table didn't win the award for best theme. I attribute our loss to the fact that our well-dressed diners were out roaming the grounds when the judges came along. Less surprising is the fact that this candelabra adorned table with tiara-wearing women won the prize for most outrageous decoration. Really, where do people get these ideas, not to mention the clothes???
The evening was great fun, with the Ultimate Rack Pack--comprised of Bill Stabile as Sinatra, Steve Roman as Davis, and William Cintron as Martin--putting on a good show. The audience particularly liked the danceable songs like "Everybody's Twistin'." (Not one of Sinatra's biggies, but I checked, and it is on his list of recorded songs.)
