(AKA: Yet another SIFF Opening Night that was awesome & tons of fun)
In which I arrive at The Paramount to meet Hanna & ChrisB and immediately regret my dress choice. Full skirt + wind = imminent wardrobe malfunction.
In which we are herded like cattle into the theater, find decent seats, and enjoy a special short film to honor 35 years of SIFF, and further enjoy In the Loop.
In which we head to the street party outside, discover the food lines closely resemble mosh pits (people in suits & cocktail dresses can shove HARD – I have the bruises to prove it!), get cold, grab a mojito and head back inside. The one taco I fought for was really good, though.
In which we discover the Bubble Lounge, see both Mimi Kennedy & Zach Woods, devour cupcake-y goodness, meet a million cool people, have more drinks, and join the 80s Dance Party.
In which the party ends, an awesome Roller Girl takes pics of us on the red carpet, and we depart for our separate homes. Note to taxi driver: that incense was totally not covering up whatever happened in there before me.
