7/7/07 = Party Time
Do you have your plans set for July 7? I’m planning a bachelorette party for that night (and no, this is not an open invitation). In my planning for said event I discovered that this night just so happens to be the “biggest party night of the year.” Huh? Yeah, I didn’t believe it at first either, but 3 out of 3 local limo companies report that 7/7/07 is the busiest night of their year thus far.
“It’s 7/7/07,” said one proprietor when I dared question his authority. “Everybody wants to party that night!”
At first I thought maybe this was a scam that the limo companies pull on every gullible bridesmaid, “Yeah, honey, you better book fast, everybody’s partying on February 17. It’s the biggest party night of the year!”
Resourceful bridesmaid that I am, I did some research about the date. While I couldn’t find anything to substantiate their claims of the never-before-seen bacchanalian excesses that will be 7/7/07, I did stumble onto an article from The Columbus Dispatch about how popular that date is for weddings. Call me crazy, but a day where a lot of people in Ohio get married doesn’t exactly live up to its hype as the biggest party night of the year. I guess we shall see. One thing is for sure, I’ll definitely be out that night albeit not because of the date. Still, it’s comforting to know that when my grandchildren someday ask me if I witnessed firsthand the parties of 7/7/07, I’ll be able to say I was there. Start making plans, people!
