80's Party Is a Hit

Last Friday night Lincoln's Inn turned back the clock and celebrated in true 80's style. Leg warmers, side ponytails, track jackets, headbands, and old school neckties all made appearances while party-goers listened to Duran Duran, Bon Jovi, A-Ha, and Wang Chung, to name a few. The costume contest proved very competitive; but in the end, Venice Monagan edged out Kees Vandenberg. Venice arrived decked out in full Michael Jackson gear, complete with sequined glove, and became a crowd favorite in the contest. Kees's retro boombox and fingerless gloves were good, but not quite good enough to be a winner. As a result of the contest, Venice is being awarded with a Lincoln's Inn membership at half price. Who knew pretending to be Michael Jackson could pay off so well!

The next Lincoln's Inn party is this Friday, September 29 at 9:00 PM, and it is our annual "Traffic Light Party." This is a night when everyone wears their heart on their sleeve and publicizes their relationship status via their clothing choice. Red means in a relationship ("stop"), green means single and looking ("go"), and yellow means something in between ("proceed with caution!"). We at the Inn hope to see a lot of green on Friday!

Membership Drive In Full Swing!

It's recruitment season here at Lincoln's Inn, which means parties every weekend! The first party of the season was a huge success with over 100 attendees. 1Ls got to see the Inn for the first time and upperclass members dropped by to see the improved house (proving that a fresh coat of paint, changed lightbulbs, and professional cleaning go a long way!) The second party was a pre-party to the HL Central Bar Review and was another rousing affair, with many first-timers present. The third party this last weekend drew those who still had the energy for a Saturday night event and attendees enjoyed themselves.

Up next at the Inn is its annual 80s costume party! This event features a costume contest in which the winner receives an Inn membership for half price (that's worth $175!) The party will also include a playlist of 80s hits, free drinks, and a fun atmosphere. Make sure to check it out, especially if you like wearing sunglasses at night or walking like an Egyptian.

The Inn is currently taking membership applications, which can be found in the front hall of the house. We accept checks, cash, and credit cards via the PayPal website. The membership fee is $350 for a limited time only; until October 1, 2006. After this date, the fee jumps to $400. Don't wait to join!
