    No, I must have heard this wrong. St. George? beer? Giant Party? No, the City Counsel would never approve of this. I will have to venture into town to see for myself. I’m not even going to ask if dancing will be allowed. I don’t believe it.

    I feel the same way, Billy. I am going to have to check this out with my own two eyes.

    No worry, folks. Read it more carefully. It’s just another school carnival gussied up with a little wine and beer and jazz to make it look like St. George is a place for grownups. Reminds me of the “family nights” when I was a good little LDS girl in Idaho.

    Don’t get too excited. Real places for grownups look so much different. And one day, Alice, you’ll leave Wonderland and see for yourself.

      Looking at the map, I’m a bit hopeful. The kids’ section and the beer/wine section are at separate ends of the block. With any luck, I can enjoy a glass of wine and some good music without kiddos running amok.
