Invite for April 2007 Party

PASSWORD: "Cohen's Fashion Optical. Where Else?"

Yes, we're doing MAGIC GARDEN on Passover, but I don't want anyone sending locusts or plagues my way. We’ll be doing the new dance that’s sweeping the Jewish nation – “The Lamb Shank.” And we'll have special cocktails like the “How’m I Doin' Daiquiri" and the “Sloe Gin Goetz.” If you're going to a seder, I guarantee you'll need a drink afterwards, unless what, you think you're better than everybody else? We'll be screening "Sleeper" by king Jew himself, Woody Allen.
