well she was an american girl

raised on promises…

So, I’ve been bugging you all week about this event. It’s free. It’s at Busy Bee. Tonight. From 7 to 10. I promise fun. I promise good times. And Antoine and I would really appreciate any help we can get making us look like we know how to throw a good time. And ya know what – outside of all that – they tapped Hopslam last night* [which, if you don’t know, is essentially the nectar of the gods] So please think about doing us a huge favor and at least stopping by tonight. It’s practically on your way to everywhere else you might be going anyhow... :) Thanks guys!
