Winter Event - January 2006
"Comedie Del Arte"

This lush event was held at Seattle's private club The Ruins.  SITU Members  and guests dressed in beautiful and very colorful attire.

Our event  featured dancing instruction by a professional who then proceeded to guide us in the activity leaving many breathless  and laughing.  We also enjoyed savory and sweet treats which were prepared for us by The Ruins.  Additionally, we were entertained by another professional couple who provided a lively "Punch & Judy" show.

During the evening, a spirited "murder mystery" game was played based on a story of a noble Italian family.  (The winners are featured in the photo, 3rd from the end.)

Although most attendees were in costume, there were guests who simply wore more contemporary attire but were able to join in the fun!
