What to Wear

The theme is Denim and Diamonds so be sure to wear your jeans or denim with a touch of bling (especially for the ladies).  Dinner is in a covered pavilion area with several open French door areas. 

The weather is predicted to be warm, and you might consider bringing sunglasses and possibly a hat for the adjacent outdoor concert area.  It will be cooler after the sun goes down, so you may want to include a jacket or shawl – and your dancing shoes!
