Teatro ZinZanni

I went to Teatro ZinZanni with my best guy last night. It was fabulous. Really wonderful. I had such a good time.

However, I say with no arrogance, and no little pride, that my date and I were the best dressed guests there. I was in one of my Victorian corsets and a velvet skirt with my hair up and he was in a suit and tie. We were stared at and smiled at. I had many people compliment me on my corset and asked me what it was like to wear one.

What is it with Seattlelites having a night on the town in a t-shirt and jeans?! Why spend the kind of money you can spend at a place like Teatro ZinZanni and dress like you're going to a ballgame? I am at a total loss. Why not dress up and look fabulous? You look fabulous, you feel fabulous!

Teatro ZinZanni is closing in August for a time for relocation. They are not certain when they are re-opening. If you have never gone, you should go. But, for heaven's sake, please dress up! You won't regret it.

This is casual Seattle--they wear this kind of stuff to the SYMPHONY. (GRRRRRR!!!!) I don't understand it myself. Having dated guys who don't dress up, I just got used to dressing to suit myself, and not caring that they were wearing jeans and I was wearing dress/hose/etc.

But then, I'm the girl who, when I went to the Rocky Horror Show matinee (stage production in Seattle), I dressed up in costume, and most of the audience was yuppie/soccer mom types in khakis who were staring at me, and asking each other what the rubber gloves in the prop bags were for. This is an ODD area.

And YAY for the best boy situation, I read your entry and was SO HAPPY for you. :)

Having read how much TZ costs down here in SF, I'm inclined to expect them to dress me when I get to the door.

I have to stick up for the t-shirt and jeans crowd here. I love it when other people dress up. I love to see them glammed out. I even like to dress up once and a while. But be nice to us differently-fashioned people. It's just easier this way...

Went for the EED Christmas Party last year and had a blast. We all dressed up, and had rented the place out. It was great! I've wanted to go back again, but may have to wait until after it re-opens due to money.

Hey this is a town where wearing shoes to work is formal in some places.

I always loved the super casual look in Seattle. It made me feel like I had half a chance of being dressed appropriately when I threw on my semi-formal stuff (which is the most formal clothing that I own). Dressing fabulously is for the fabulous (like yourself) :) I can't pull fabulous off myself.

Yeah, i hear you! Granted, do to my size and my status as a student, I don't have a lot of really nice clothes, but at least try some of the time.

At least you'll always have Brad. :)

While I don't think to excuse them, you do have to understand..

This is Seattle.

A lot of people wear Jeans, Sandles, and Socks together.

Why? I've no idea. But they do.
