Ray's 85th Burlesque Birthday Bash!

It was Ray's birthday once again and since he turned 85 they decided to have an 80's themed party this time! My videos are dark and not too great as I was up front and it was hard to get the dancers in the shots all the time but I did take a bunch and also some pics too. It was really packed this year with some people having to view the festivities from outside the store. 80's music, 80's clothing, inflatable boombox and HUGE portable cell phone all added to the hilarity. So happy this fun tradition lives on every year and Ray said this was the best one yet. It was really a good one...with cookies and cakes free from from the famous Veniero's as they love Ray too! Also Ray loved that fake boombox and the 80's shades and was dancing to Michael Jackson for a while. PLUS Jimmy Webb from the old Trash and Vaudeville brought Ray a punk rock starter kit from his new shop and Ray had on a studded leather belt and new leather black gloves which he seemed really into as seen in the pics.
I filmed a lot...the intro to it all by Matt Rosen, singing happy birthday to Ray, the dancers of course and more. There were A LOT of people there with pro cameras and I bet evgrieve.com will have a big post up soon with some of those shots. But for now BEHOLD!
