Marriage House Party 23 October Saturday
What follows is an announcement for the benefit of the hopefully small minority of my friends in the greater Chicago area who did not receive an e-mail from me or Yayoi. In which case, you should drop me a line to make sure you live in my address book properly. Thanks!
Dear Friends, Yayoi Ukai and Danny Howard invite you to their house Saturday Afternoon and Evening October 23, 2004 to celebrate, on the special occasion that we're getting MARRIED the day before! NO NO NO this is *NOT* our fancy WEDDING !! which will take place in the future to which you will likely be invited and dress up, and bring gifts, and dance and try to catch flowers. We will let you know well in advance of THAT shindig, this is just a come, eat snacks, make friends, get snoshed sort of party. If you can't make it we certainly understand, no worries! Attractions include: + Snacks, esp PASTRIES and CAKES. + Some sort of food stuff. + Beverages, including alcohol. + Oh, I don't know ... + JAPANESE people, from JAPAN! (Yayoi's family.) + AMERICAN people. + OTHER people. + OTHER PEOPLE from OUT OF TOWN. + You'll get to see a newly married couple. + Around 10pm or so, we may well wander down by COROSH which is a NICE BAR over on Milwaukee Ave. We do have people coming from out of town and if you'd like to do that too we can help you find a place to crash. You do not have to dress up. You do not have to bring gifts. You needn't even R.S.V.P. though it would be nice if you did. You can bring your FRIENDS if you like ... Party starts ... oh, 2? If you're coming earlyish then DO give us a ring so you don't end up OUTSIDE in the COLD as we CAROUSE elsewhere, or something.
