    This looks really fun! I’d love to dress up and go to one of these! Did you dress up? My parents used to own a vinyl record store and my mom had vintage clothes and costumes. I’m sure I could have come up with something cool 😎

  2. I used to hate history class! But History channel just nails it every time for me! Wish I could’ve been there, looked so much fun!

  3. I wish I went! I wanted to meet Adam Liaw.
