The Night Tacoma Danced is not for everybody, believe me. It is meant only for those of you who like to eat a variety of yummy food, enjoy a lot of fine entertainment, appreciate good art and are willing to have fun to support programs for kids.

Sounds like a horrible way to spend a Saturday, eh?

The Tacoma Art Museum\'s largest fund-raiser of the year, The Night Tacoma Danced, er, dances into the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center Saturday, March 3, as a "European Cabaret: Where Dreams and Reality Converge."  Yep, that\'s the theme of this year\'s black-tie gala, so those with enough dough to get in might want to throw on a few feather boas and sequins.

I\'ve held the arm of many of these Night Tacoma Danced galas, dining on fine fare, participating in the silent auction, grabbing an item or two in the artisan marketplace, which boasts 300 pieces this year.  Lovely, really.  However, this year\'s live auction and free salon on site additions have inspired me to find a finer date.  My dude, I mean, my gentleman has been encouraged to bid me a tan.

roceeds from the event will go into the pocket of TAM\'s educational department.  The museum\'s educational program is a great cause — it keeps the little snot-noses out of sight and out of mind while I check out the "Frida Kahlo: Images of an Icon" exhibit. — Suzy Stump
