A party. Somewhere downtown. Soon. Are you hip enough? Take the poll.

I got this invitation, so I must be hip, as I keep telling my kids. (“Your father’s hip he knows what cooks“)

But not everybody can be hip so I’m reluctant to spread the details on the party. I will include some photos of the people involved, however.

Hey Everyone.

IMG_5169.jpgIt’s ___ here from ___. I’m just writing to leMF.jpgt you all know about a get-together some of us are tying to organize. It is for anyone and everyone who is in business in Northfield.

We are having a party on ___ at the ___ from ___.

___ is providing appetizers and we will have live music by ___ and ___.

It’s just a fun way for all the Northfielders to get together and kick back after the busy season, and for some, a musician57.jpgrelaxing evening before their busy season begins.

This isn’t an event put on by any specific gIMG_0060.JPGroup, it’s put on by everyone for everyone. ___ is being so generous by renting his space for free and providing food so I hope we can have a great turnout! We hope to see all of you there. Let me know if you have any questions!

But I could be persuaded to reveal the details of the party if 100 people take this poll, which would break our record for poll respondents.

    So ya wanna dump out yo’ trick bag.
    Ease on in a hip thang,
    But you ain’t exactly sure what is hip.

    So you started to let your hair grow.
    Spent big bucks on your wardrobe.
    Somehow, ya know there’s much more to the trip.

    What is hip?
    Tell me, tell me, if you think you know.
    What is hip?
    If you’re really hip,
    the question, “Will it show?”
    You’re into a hip trip.
    Maybe hipper than hip.
    What is hip?

    You became a part of a new breed.
    Been smokin’ only the best weed.
    Hangin’ out with the so called “Hippie set.”

    Seen in all the right places.
    Seen with just the right faces.
    You should be satisfied, but it ain’t quite right.

    Come on!

    Hipness is. What it is!
    Hipness is. What it is!
    Hipness is. What it is!
    Sometimes hipness is, what it ain’t.

    You went an’ found you a guru.
    In an effort to find you a new you,
    And maybe even raise your conscious level.

    While you’re striving to find the right road,
    There’s one thing you should know,
    “What’s hip today, might become passe’.”

    Think about it y’all.

    What is hip?
    What is hip?
    I’d like to know!
    What is hip?
    Is it in the style of your hair?
    What is hip?
    Is it in the clothes that you wear?
    What is hip?
    I’d like to know.
    What is hip?
    I’d like to know.
    What is hip?
    What is hip y’all? Hey!
    What is hip?
    Hey! Oh!
    What is hip?
    What is hip y’all?
    What is hip?
    I wanna know.
    What is hip?
    What is hip?
    I wanna know what hipness is.

    Rule #1. If you’re hip, you don’t talk about being hip.

    Rule #2. Don’t use the word hip.

    It looks as if you, perhaps, overestimated the coolness of your own site. With only we geeks here to pad your polls, there’re not enough to hit your lofty goals. I’ll still attend tonight though — being in need of a brief respite.

    I’m crushed as it is, Alex, and now you’re piling on…. heartless beast!

    I’ll drown my sorrows tonight… hopefully one of the performers will do a blues piece.
