Barrister Ball, aka Law School Prom

“I got a feeling, oo oo, that tonight is gonna be a good night!”

Oh Black Eyed Peas, you were so right. It was an awesome night.

We checked into the Hilt0n D0wntown. I found a great deal on Priceline and couldn’t pass it up. It was easier to take a cab to the Fox rather than drive all the way home after the event.

This hotel is just beautiful. It’s called a boutique hotel which is odd for a chain hotel, I think.

I mean, this is the lobby – with a big ole chandelier and grand piano in the middle!

I wish I could have hung out here because it was lovely.

I think this was an old bank, because the gift shop was in a vault! I would have explored more, but we had an important date to get all gussied up for!

We had decided to meet up with the other law school kids at a party room in an apartment building near the Fox Theatre. It was a great place to hang out, take pictures of our lovies all dressed up and get a drink before the Ball.

The party room had some great Art Deco details that I loved.

What a great bar! There was another bar in front of this as well.

A friend of M’s being too good for a picture.

The main event started at the Fox that evening – we were even on the marquee!

Now, as an actor, on the stage of the most beautiful theatre in the city, what did I do?

Take pictures of the scenery of course! I may never get there again!

Husband and I had a magical evening – with good food, good drinks and even better friends.

  1. Looks like you had a great time! I don't think we've ever stayed at that Hilton. Is it the one across from the Crowne Plaza? I know we have been at the ballpark one and isn't union station a Hilton now?
