- That Touch of Drink - 
Capitol City Brewery

Prior to leaving for the evening, Emily & April had some time to kill.
Then again, I think they were trying to kill themselves!  There were no screens on these windows & we were EIGHT stories up!

"'Trying' to see the capitol from my room window 
(and scaring my mother half to death)" -- Emee

Plans had to be changed at the last minute, since Planet Hollywood shut their doors just one week prior to CV2001.  The Capitol City Brewery was happy to accommodate us.  Jenny & Graham headed over to decorate for "That Touch of Drink."  Cary Grant swizzle sticks, champagne bottles with pink 'froth' flowing from them, the recipes for various drinks from different CG movies, bright stars & photos of Cary & Doris Day made for a festive atmosphere!  (And lots of good memorabilia for my scrapbook!)

Bill Neal, LeeAnn Neal, Joan Shacklette & Patty Treiber.

Joan & Patty came to be known as our "Unplugged" Warbrides.
Neither of them have a computer.  Joan found us one day while cruising the internet at a friend's house.  She emailed me from her friend's computer and asked me for details of CV2001.  I thought it would be easier to call her with the info, only to discover that she'd already booked her flight by the time I called!  Joan's biggest fear was that we'd all think she was weird for liking Cary so much!  Just wait till she sees Cheryl wearing the centerpiece at Gunga Dinner, then we'll decide who's weird!!

Cheryl Trahan, Caren Parker & Debby Schwensen
