"Somebody's getting punched in the eye"

Oh man, the Spent & Happening Mad Hatters Ball at Petra's Piano Bar was crazy. At first it felt like a rave, but the music, the outfits and the entertainers made it much more. I'm still working on the videos.  Now, let's get this party started. See you in the streets.
