The party just got started and the roof is already a-rockin'

This is a great Madison event. Good music, good food, and a whole lot of people-watching & bumping into old friends (literally!)

At the risk of provoking Needy, I think Dane Dances is the most racially diverse event in Madison.

The number of white, establishment Madison people who call DD "the most diverse event in Madison!!1!" is incredible. It must be true!

I was at a cookout on the north side last weekend that was pretty diverse: white, black, hmong, hispanic. Kids running the DJ setup jacking their phones in for a song or two. Zero politicians, though, so it didn't rate the typical overstatement by those looking to (over)compensate.

Oh yea, well I was at a cookout and there were black, Asian, Mexican, Indian, a couple Native Americans, a midget and two Russians. Top that big man. No DJ, so you have me beat there.

None of these people exist outside of Neade's fevered imagination of course. Just a trollish troll trolling for troll's sake.
