(Forgive me if you see this multiple times.)

For you Seattle local types (I'm not going to insist any of my out-of-town friends come), I already have plans for my birthday on Sunday, December 9th. Yes, I know it is early but, you see, my fabulous SO, solarannulus has already claimed that night with reservations for Teatro ZinZanni at their new location in Seattle.

Teatro ZinZanni is much like a smaller, but no less impressive, Cirque Du Soleil. It is not an inexpensive night but the food and the performances that happen in and around your dinner table are well worth it. You need to get your reservations well in advance.

I will be dressed to the 9's that night and I would love to see others of my friends enjoying dinner and the show around me. I know we have floor seats. Between that, my birthday and the corset, I have a decent chance of being dragged into the show. I would love to have some support from the audience should this happen.

The last time I went, Jeff and I were the only people I saw dressed up. So much so that people thought he and I were part of the show! I would like to see that changed. I know my friends can and do dress up when appropriate and this would be one of those times. Plus, as I was returning from the ladies room, one of the performers decided to escort me back to my seat. It was funny. Dressing up gets you noticed by the performers.

Now that sounds like a wonderful birthday idea!! And dressing up is always, always so much fun...I like reasons to do so. I know how you feel about being the only one, though! I will look at my schedule and see if I have plans that night; if I don't, I'll look into going, and start planning an outfit.

Years ago, I saw a production of "Tony & Tina's Wedding." We had brought birthday presents for someone in our group, as this was their birthday shindig. The cast vamped on that, and between that and my inclination to "play along back" with them, we were very much a focus of the cast--so yeah, that's FUN!! :) ('course, not for everyone, but YEAH!)

Now, we talkin' any kind of "dressed to the 9s" in particular?

I'm going to be romantigothy dressed to the 9's. You can dress up anyway you like.

I took Michelle to the San Francisco Teatro ZinZanni and we had an incredible time. Both of us dressed up but there were more people there dressed in a wide variety of casualness (one group of two couples were there in tuxes and evening dresses, another couple was there in some vintage '20's, it was cool).

Goldstar events has been offering discounted tickets for TZ in San Francisco and I've been kicking around the idea of going. Is it definitely an adults only sort of show or would it be appropriate to take a well-mannered 9 year old? He's sophisticated (loves the theatre) but I'm not sure what the content is.

It would be just fine for kids. There is some ribald humor but there's juggling, high wire, comedy, contortionists and singing as well.

Thanks. :)

We try to balance between restricting input and not treating him like he's made of candy glass. I suspect he'd really enjoy TZ and he's a great date.
