Save the Last Dance at the Silicon Valley Spring Fling
San Jose has never seen a more swingin’ party than at last weekend's Spring Fling. Amid a brisk and star lit evening, spruced up guys and gals did the twist all the way the San Jose Woman's Club. As the guests filtered in, they were awed by the frozen-in-time interior. Built in 1929, this historic landmark came to life during an era of elegance and romance. Ladies donned the finest in polka dotted dresses, dainty pearls and poodle skirts while the fellas rolled cigarette packs into their white-tee sleeves and applied the pomade to their finely styled coifs. As Randy F can attest, “almost everyone got into the 1950's theme!”
Stepping out of the vintage moment, Rubio's served up an endless array of tasty Mexican food including veggie, chicken and steak burritos, street style tacos, chips many salsas and freshly made guacamole. In between bites, the cool kids sipped on sodie pop, thanks to Jarritos and the latest brews from Blue Moon. Those looking to indulge in succulent sin, twirled over to Fortino Winery and Long Meadow Ranch to redden their already flushed cheeks. DJ Tanoa "Samoa Boy" spun the 45s and Johnny B Goode got the swing dancers captivating the crowd with their whipping, spinning, twirling, dipping and sugar pushing rhythm. This DJ blew the dust off all the hits and really gave the gang something to dance to.
As if the house wasn’t rocking enough, Made in San Jose/Red Haute Couture cleared the dancefloor for a righteous fashion show. Over 15 guys and gals from Halvorson Model Management walked the runway, decked in the latest spring fashions by Allison Rix and BRIM. Umbrella Salon even got hands-on with hair and make-up. Jorge Novoa set up a photobooth, just like at an old school homecoming and if guests didn't feel like waiting in line, NBD, they just hit up the 2nd photo booth, courtesy of B.Lo.The.C Photography! Sounds swell, right? Fit for any big-band era high school prom, this Spring Fling was in a class of its own. More pics from Goodeye photography can be seen here as well.
