Quoted from "Zoot Cat" 1944

"Boy, are you corny!"...
How many times have you been told that?
Get your boots laced, buddy!
Get hep to the jive
Step in and see "Slammin' Sam The Zoot Suit Man"
Step out with a Zoot Suit
With a drape shape and a reet pleat
Wear an ankle length jacket with three foot shoulders
Pants that begin at the chin, zoom to a 54 inch knee,
Then fade softly to a three inch Victory cuff.
Get hep! Get one! Get lost in a new Zoot Suit!

WHAT A SCHEDULE!

It's always such fun to plan our year, and I do have some wonderful news for your dancing pleasure. Make sure to take a look under Rusty's Rhythm Club for some great upcoming dances!

FRIENDS AND FAMILY NITE FEBRUARY 3
WITH NEIL MORROW

Make sure to bring your newbie friends to the club this Wednesday- what a great way to introduce them to swing dancing!

PLUS... DANCE-A-THON SIGN UPS!
LET'S HAVE A STRONG RUSTY'S RHYTHM CLUB TEAM

This from the people bringing you the Dance-A-Thon:

The 24 Hour Cancer Dance-a-thon is fast approaching on March 13th and 14th, 2010. While we have a lot of participants registered, many of them have not joined a team. Please make sure that you register and join a team well in advance of March 13. This will make the registration process smoother for everyone and will get you out onto the dance floor faster.

To help with the formation of teams, we are pleased to announce RUSH WEEK at the following swing dance venues.

Monday, February 1 - Memories, Coffee Depot
Tuesday, February 2 - ATOMIC Ballroom
Wednesday, February 3 - Rusty's Rhythm Club, The Firehouse (San Diego), Strutters' Ball
Thursday, February 4 - Lindygroove
Friday, February 5 - The Jam (San Diego), ATOMIC Ballroom
Saturday, February 6 - PBDA, 1st Saturday Swing at Top Cats (in Placentia)
Sunday, February 7 - ATOMIC Ballroom (free swing and soul party /fundraiser meeting 7pm)

VALENTINE'S PARTY NEXT WED
02-10 WITH ESQUIRES

Gosh! Is it already time to bust out the Valentine's candy? Why, yes it is. And that means it's time for our Valentine's Swing Dance Party with The Fabulous Esquires!

We always love to dress up on this one. So brush off the red and white!


YOU ASKED FOR IT, YOU GOT IT
"CHEAP & CHEERFUL" $8 DJ NITE AT RUSTY'S

02-17 SPECIAL GUEST "DJ JOSE" & ROBERT "THE PROFESSOR" VANGOR

Just before the holidays, I sent out a Rusty's Rhythm Club survey. Many of you asked for an occasional cheaper night. Your wish is my command. We're giving it a try this month with a $8 "Cheap & Cheerful" DJ Nite. Let us know what you think.



02-24 JIVE ACES PLAY FOR MY B-DAY DANCE

Sometimes a girl just get lucky -- and, boy howdy, did I get lucky this year with the Jive Aces being in town right at the time of my birthday. As they are simply one of the liveliest and most entertaining bands on planet earth, I guess I can pretty much be guaranteed a grand birthday dance. And, you'll have a GREAT time, too!

03-24 RUSTY'S 12-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
WITH GEORGE GEE FROM THE BIG APPLE

Hard to believe yet another dancing year has gone by and this is the 12-Year Anniversary of Rusty's Rhythm Club. But, yes indeed, it is! And we hit the jackpot with this one... we got George Gee all the way from the Big Apple. This is not to be missed! Mark your calendars right now and let's all celebrate together.

ZOOT CAT

We've been talking about this cartoon clip for three weeks in our Tuesday night classes! Ron and I have been doing our best to imitate 3:39 (you'll see!). This is a classic Tom and Jerry cartoon and hysterical! Hope it gives a big smile to your day.

LOST YOUR JOB? TOOK A PAY CUT?
DON'T BE A STRANGER!
WE'LL WORK SOMETHING OUT FOR YOU

Every now and again, people just disappear from our scene who have been regular dancers. I wonder why. Did they get married, did they move, or did they suffer some financial hit.

If it's economics, please know that you are always welcome. Don't stay away. We can work something out! Here's some options:

~ I am happy to work out trades... you could sit at the door for a bit at the Rhythm Club in exchange for the dance that night.

~ Find me at the Rhythm Club, and just pay what you can.

~ I'll give you some Rhythm Club passes until this era blows over for you.

~ And the same thing goes for all Lindy By The Sea classes!

I know that dancing really helps in hard times. So don't be a stranger! We'll work it out to meet your needs.
