iscussing this year’s Ladies Night with the bould Susan Collins, the one thing we realised is that such a night doesn’t really too much planning.
This is Christmas with bubbly and bargains, Greystones’ Big Night Out as the silly season descends.
All you really need to do is set a date, and they will come. And party.
Giving the night over to a little Thursday Night Fever, from AMOC to Zero One, all the shops blasted out dance floor faves, whilst this fashion groove thang extended to The Horse & Hound, The Beauty Room and beyond.
All the while, it was obvious that Black Friday had nothing on our own Pink Thursday.
At the centre of it all were some fine fashions and buckets of free bubbly though, with The Plaza Christmas Market opening for a one-off late night love-in. There, you could find live music, something that was also happening at Susie’s traditional drag party, with the Beating Time choir roaming the streets with their close harmony singing too.
Greystones excelled itself this year, with party people left, right agus centre, and off-menu delights at every corner. The mighty SherryFitz even stayed open late, having organised an exhibition of Kelly Hood’s work, along with a Greystones Cancer Support raffle of her much-loved Beef On The Beach painting.
Yep, it was a night to paint the town forty shades of pink, as the ladies once again took over, and partied like it was 1979.
Big thanks to the one and only John McGowan, who ventured out into the night to capture all the mayhem and smudged make-up…
