The Backyard Burger delivered to Das Bierhaus in Tower from us at Taste Kitchen. Cheers!
To-night, a dozen of my friends had a meeting to discuss how we can improve Fresno’s swing community (Lindy Hop and Charleston, specifically).
So, 12 is pretty much half of our scene but most of us started dancing about two years ago. I’m proud that we have stuck with it for so long! Learning a dance is so damn challenging but the community and care-free personality you start to develop is worth it.
I’m looking forward to introducing more people to the swing-dancing community and helping it get the recognition it deserves. :)
Hot damn! The Taco Truck Throwdown is during ArtHop. Decisions. Decisions.
Check out the event page for more details.
UPDATE: Here are the exact details I got about the special
SPECIAL DEAL FOR AUGUST: Bring a NEW LEADER
& get 2 weeks FREE at Wednesday Night Swing!
If your new leader purchases a 4-week pass, you get the 2-week pass, it’s that simple. Leader must be new to WNS, though not necessarily a beginner. Both passes are non-transferable and are to be used by the end of September.
Is anyone interested in taking beginning Lindy Hop lessons? Lindy Hop is a form of swing dance that first became popular in the 1920s. Fresno Swing Dance teaches beginning and intermediate lessons, every Wednesday Night.
#Fresno Swing Dance has a referral program, for August: for every beginning lead I refer to the Wednesday Night lessons, I get two free lessons! The lead makes the follower move and is typically the male’s part in partner dancing. I started learning how to lead, so the lessons would be very helpful. If YOU refer a lead, you can get two free lessons, as well!
If you have any questions, let me know. If you do go to the lessons, tell them That Fresno Blog sent you. :D
Time: Wednesday Nights - 7:00-8:15PM lessons; 8:15-9:30PM social dance
Location: Studio 65 - 2965 N. Maroa Ave, Fresno, CA (south of Shields and Maroa)
Cost: General - $8/lesson & dance; $5 for dance
Student - $5/lesson & dance; $3 for dance
(I think prices have increased in the past month)

I bought a GiGi Young vintage dress at Misc. Trading Co. in #downtown #Fresno. I altered the dress to make it fit me better (took off the skinny sleeves, widened waist, etc.). #vintage #dress #sewing #pinup
Fresno Filmworks shared this movie screening with me on Facebook. This is what they told me: “If you like to watch awkward 20-something to try to awkwardly figure out work, life, and relationships on the big screen, this is the event for you.” Ha! With that kind of description, I knew I had to share on tumblr. ;)
Fresno Filmworks does a great job with bringing indie and foreign films to Fresno. Like them on facebook for event updates.
Also, I encourage you all to go to the Catacomb Party at the Fulton Mall on July 20th, at noon I believe. Admission is free, and is open to all ages. The Cockamamie Jamie act promises spectacular theatrics and possibly a light show. His last show that I saw was really good and his raps crack me up. Aside from being top notch beep boppin quality. Check it out!! Or at LEAST download the album, I think it’s still temporarily free online :)
