I wore this to give a presentation to members of Springboard for the Arts and YNPN Twin Cities over at the Icehouse. And let me tell you, presenting in a bar is FUN. (Photo evidence here.) Everyone is relaxed, the atmosphere is casual, and people are much less shy about hitting you with tough questions. Which I love. Q&A is always the best part of my speaking gigs!

Have you ever attended an unusual event at a bar? Something besides live music, like a poetry slam or book reading?

    Not quite an event, as it was an ongoing available thing, but the strangest/best bar ‘thing’ I ever saw was this bar in Washington DC that had ping-pong tables. (It was on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives the week after we visited, so foodie types may know the name of it?).

    Love it – full of zing and sass! I think you’ve just reawakened my shopping mojo for something powerfully pink. Or more like magenta maybe, but my eyes know what they’re looking for.

      Me too! I thought I would be the only one! Actually, it was my sister’s baby shower and I helped set it up. In our defense, we live in a very rural area and it happens to be a very good central location! And no alcohol was served. Plus, they had/have a really good shuffleboard table.

    This is how I dress pretty much every day, with a necklace instead of the scarf. Love it!

      Lots about what is and isn’t office appropriate or age appropriate, shopping resources, tailoring recommendations … kinda depends on the crowd!
