ARENA Bikini: Cherry Bomb
It's not quite swimsuit season yet, but ARENA Bikini's Cherry Bomb benefit party will get you in the mood for some poolside glamour. The evening kicks off with a social hour boasting specialty cocktails, carnival-style games, fortune telling, and Minnesota State Fair-inspired appetizers. From there, Mathew Janczewski's ARENA dancers will give a performance of modern dance, followed by models taking the stage in retro swimwear fashions from local designers such as Amyanne Alderete, Jay Nelson and Anita Jensen of Perfect Fit Gear, and Tim and Thom Navarro of TIM+THOM. Looks will be critiqued by a panel of celebrity judges, including host Carly Aplin and L.A. Nik. Afterward, stay for the dance party, which will feature tunes from DJ Jesuz Juice into the wee hours of the evening. Dress in your retro best; era-themed attire, be it vintage or inspired, is highly encouraged. Proceeds from the event benefit ARENA. Visit www.arena-dances.org for tickets.
