Smart bets: Hot Summer Nights

There are those who try to forget cultural trends of yesteryear, and others who will defend their favorite decade with gusto. The latter group is who Christine Garvin is targeting with her next event, Hot Summer Nights: ’80s Meets ’90s. “The whole evening is about bringing together these two fantastic decades through dance, music, storytelling, improv, aerials and fun interactive [activities],” Garvin says. Between eclectic individual and group performances, guests can dance to time-tested hits, check out a buti yoga demonstration, play games and stop at a massage area. Plus, local nonprofits Girls Rock Asheville and Girls on the Run receive a portion of ticket sales and proceeds from a retro raffle to support the next generation of doers. The party is at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall on Saturday, Aug. 20, at 8:30 p.m. $18/$23 ($26 VIP).

    Don’t waste your money on this. Went last year and left after 5 minutes.

      Hi Jane,

      I’m sorry you felt that way. Which event did you attend and where (we had two last year)? We work really hard to showcase women of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds at our shows, and give them a chance to shine in front of their supportive community. We also bring in other local professional acts to give the audience a lot of variety for their money. We have gotten great feedback on what we offer and the community that it builds.

      I would love to hear your thoughts on why you didn’t enjoy the show, especially after five minutes, since a max of one act could happen in that amount of time. Please feel free to email me at wholenutrition [at] yahoo dot com.
