A Night at the Cicada Club
This week’s gallery is a photo essay. It combines two of my great passions, photography and ballroom dancing. Sunday evening Lynne and I took our son and his fiancée to the Cicada Club in downtown Los Angeles. With the grandeur of a classic Hollywood musical from the thirties, The Cicada Club is a most unique experience that transports you back in time to the glamorous days of Hollywood’s golden age of nightclubs. http://www.cicadaclub.com/
