As some of you might know, my latest release from Dreamspinner When Love Takes Over is set in the fabulous locale that is Provincetown, Massachusetts. In that book, the reader gets to experience P-town’s unique settings and one-of-a-kind parties.
Now, even though readers are treated to Zach and Van’s romp through these places, I figured it might be fun to provide a more intimate look at some of the best locales in Provincetown. So, today, I’ll be starting with the famous Tea Dance.
Just what is a Tea Dance?
Well, it’s a party that occurs daily on the pool deck of the Boatslip, which is also a hotel.
After purchasing a drink from one of the many bartenders, our personal favorite is Maria because she’s totally AWESOME, you then walk the length of the deck, drink your cocktail, and socialize. And BOY, do we socialize!
When your drink is finished, you repeat the process as many times as you can make the trip back to Maria. Just how many is that for me? Well, let’s just say that our alcohol purchases have taken care of Maria for life.
Then, there’s the dance floor, where DJ Mary Alice spins her tracks. From Solid Gold to 80s music and contemporary, there is music to fit most everyone’s tastes, and the dance floor is typically packed tighter than “a power bottom being double penetrated by two horse hung tops.” (That’s a direct quote from WLTO.) 😀
While it’s nothing like Zach’s first time on the Tea Dance dance floor, here’s a little video clip of us getting our groove on!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEWEOJr4u9c
So, there you have it. Just a small glimpse at Tea Dance in Provincetown. Hopefully, some day you’ll join us. And if you can’t make it to P-town, you can always follow along with the adventures in The Provincetown Series. 🙂
