Let Your Body Learn

Back in the 80's a big part of my teenage social life revolved around under 21 night clubs. There were two clubs in York, Pa at the time that catered to my alternative taste in music-Big City Under 21 Nite Club and Zakie's. Me and my friend Jessica's entire week revolved around Friday nights at Big City. What would we wear? (Would I wear that Benetton pink sweater dress AGAIN?) Who would drive? Who would be there? What song would be our song to dance to in the cage? Would the Swatch Bunch be there? I even had my first kiss at Big City. Tonight ,an old friend Krista today informed me that on October 11th, there will be an actual Big City reunion for those who hung out there in the '80s and I have to confess that after seeing one of the playlists for the evening, I'm tempted although I would have to recommend adding Nemesis by Shreikback. So, who's game? My mom will drive.
