Spanish American Club Halloween Dance

by Charlie Quiles

AAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!! Cried out one lady when abruptly confronted by the Ninja’ Clad Warrior’ who turned out to be a dear acquaintance of hers. This night was attended by Pirates, Ninjas, Witches and even a Ghost or two. It was enough to scare this man out of his ‘Doggy’ costume. We had an Egyptian contingency of beautifully dressed maidens accompanied by Ramses, the great pharaoh. No problem, we had our own Roman senator, no actually, it was Caesar himself to keep them in check. He was accompanied by his regally dressed wife, ‘The Queen’. ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ made an appearance as ‘Elvin Beauties’scampered about. A ‘Knight in Shining Armor’ fearlessly protected his own feline belle from the allures of the ‘Doggy Man’.

A few ‘Gangsta’ figures including at least one ‘moll’ were present. They were all salivating at the presence of the ‘Monopoly Banker’ for some reason. Even a ‘Lady of the Night’ pranced about in a flirtatiously revealing outfit, “Ooh, la, la”. The peasant class were not without representation either ‘Juan Valdes’ along with one or two Colombian lovelies were there. Lest we forget, ‘The Nerd’ went about handing out pictures of himself. How he conquered the heart of that wonderfully dressed ‘Egyptian maiden’ is beyond anybody’s guess.

Tonight’s highlight included the drawing of the raffle for the ‘HP Laptop computer’. It was won by Tania Carrillo who did not attend tonight’s festivities. The raffle has proven to be a valuable boost to the Club’s coffers. Hopefully it will continue to provide needed revenue to help fuel these amazing events. The next raffle and prize will be announced shortly. Thank you to all participants.

The Domino Tournament winners were announced tonight. The games were held on Saturday, October 6th at the St. Lucie Lanes. The Ladies 1st Place winners were Daisy Alemán and Diana Colón (absent).
