MRE Dance Party

| March 20, 2012 | 1 Comment

Join your friends from The Maritime Republic of Eastport in our annual Celebration of the Anniversary of our Micro-nation’s secession from Annapolis (especially the tyranny of Ward One).

March 24, 2012 beginning at 7PM.  In the tradition of Mardi Gras(or Kinky Key West on any day), don your gladdest rags (you will be judged!) for — our own MRE dance party.

Back for the 6th consecutive year, we have the fabulous Little Red& The Renegades to entertain us with their two-stepping, rump-shaking,“can’t sit still” live music, that they’ve been playing to capacity crowds, including many out-of-towners (not just us East Port-O-Reekins).  Of Little Red’s sound, Austin, Texas, music critic Lee Nichols writes that it’s “…just flat out fun — it’s an exuberant celebration of everything wonderful about American music, with a heavy emphasis on Zydeco and Cajun.”

What else?  Face painters will help you put on a happy face.  Door prizes, a 50-50, celebrity appearances, and more!  (But no baptisms,marriages, AA meetings, or City Council sessions.  Sorry.) EDC Members & invited guests.

As a former MRE Premier once said, “You don’t have to be an Eastport-O-Reekin’ to participate in the celebration. It’s like being Italian (?) on St. Patrick’s Day.”
