Guests were attired in Penny loafers, saddle shoes and poodle skirts! The Italian American Civic Association of Vero Beach, 1600 25th Street, Vero Beach, Florida hosted a 50’s and 60’s Music and Dance Party on Friday, August 18, 2017.
Open to the public, the party commenced at 5:30 pm with a variety of cocktails available for sale in the club bar. The club dining room opened at 6:30 pm for dinner. Diners had an option to choose a main course of either fried chicken breast with mashed potatoes or baked fish with corn relish, and vegetables and salad were also served.
Admission to the dinner was $15.00 per person for the public. Reservations were required by calling (772) 778-1522 to secure a seat and select a main course choice. (Vegetarian plates were available if requested at time of reservation.)
Fifties and 60’s attire was encouraged, but for those not in period dress, the club’s dining room attire is always Florida formal: collared shirt, no jeans.
GetShotByElla.com team member Mike Policare, a long time member of the IACA who has recently taken on the position of vice president, said “It was a night to rock and roll! The party featured great music by Ron Finn www.RonFinn.com , a Hula Hoop challenge, prizes for best dressed 50’s and 60’s man and woman and also best dance couple.”
