Boy, I expected the worst from this, but it was great. It was not too loud, it was not too crowded, there were no clowns (as far as I saw), the games seemed like fun, and everyone seemed to be having a good time.

I can’t stress how much I valued the “not too loud.” I had conversations with people without losing my voice. The “not too crowded” was also huge. I walked around with people without having to form a single-file crowd-breaking line.

This put all of the other excruciatingly loud, crowded parties to shame.

I’m ready for my permanent bicep Tux tattoo if you’re offering.
