10/13 : Inferno – Hot Flash Dance @ Jones 6 – 10 PM, $8
When the twenty-something club scene isn’t your thing anymore, Inferno Dances are for you! Inferno-Hot Flash Dance Parties take you back to the 70s and bring you forward into the 21st century. The music is an eclectic mix of the greatest dance tracks from the 70s to today. Inferno-Hot Flash Dances are held early in the evening so you can groove through the entire dance AND make plans to continue to party afterward. Voted “Best Women’s Dance Regardless of Sexual Orientation” in Best of Seattle 2008 Magazine, Inferno is where friendships are re-ignited, dates are made, business networks are formed, and an entire community of women come together with laughter, joy, and love.
