 Join us at this science fiction shindig for a rip-roaring, swashbuckling evening of music, dancing, and optional role-playing at our serene tribute to our favorite outer space western,  "Firefly" and its movie spinoff, "Serenity."

 Bangers & Mash, that shiniest of bands in the 'verse, will play an evening of 19th century and Neo-19th century social dances: We will dance waltzes, polkas, mazurka waltzes, schottisches, elegant country dances, rousing contradances, and mixers (If you don't know them, don't worry:  All pattern dances will be briefly taught or called at the ball!). The band will also play such perennial space travelers' favorites as "The Blue Danube Waltz," "The Congress of Vienna Waltz," "Sir Roger de Coverley," "The Bohemian National Polka," and "Inara's Waltz Cotillion." No partners required.  We do lots of mixing at this shindig!

Western, 19th century or neo-19th century, Civil War or Post-Civil War costume is admired but not required, and creative blending of past and future fashions is also encouraged.  Just now - here in the 23rd Century, Old West, Chinese, and Indian motifs are fashionable and, of course, Browncoats are extremely welcome, and science fiction/fantasy costume from any universe is admired.

There will be a full no-host bar (that means you pay for your own drinks, pardner!), soft drinks for sale for temperance folk and minors, and a complimentary light buffet of Neo-Western snacks. Given local  food shortages on this here planet, your potluck contributions to the buffet are appreciated.
