Jump Back to the Future

This weekend Erin and I went to Cleveland to attend Jump Back Ball an annual event put on by Playhouse Square. As it should be, since the year is 2015, the theme was Jump Back to the Future, so of COURSE I had to attend!

I’m sad to report that I was very, very disappointed with the lack of spirit with the Cleveland attendees of this event. Out of 800 tickets sold I would guess that at the VERY most 200 people came in costume? And that might be stretching it because we were assuming some of the dresses were sort of 1950s. I was shocked. While the event is also black tie, it seemed like a no-brainer to find something from the 1950s, 1980s, the future or the Old West.

Me, Erin, Stephanie and Stacy were all dresses as 50s gals. And being a group of people all in theme, we were in the minority. It was odd for sure. I saw a handful of Doc Browns, Marty McFlys, Lorraine Baines, and Jennifer Parkers. Not one single Biff.  Only a few future people. It was so bizarre, almost like I was in some sort of time paradox…

All in all, I had a nice time with friends, but as a theme party gala type affair? Color this Back to the Future affictionato underwhelmed. We had a more spirited party at Red House in college when we had no money for props and costumes.

Thank goodness I didn’t go as Alternate 1985 Lorraine Baines McFly Tannen I can’t imagine what kind of attention I would have received!

Tis always good to see the Cleveland Contingent though…good friends. Good times.
