you are invited to the 7th annual tracksuit invitational and hope for joel fundraiser We know you've been waiting and we will have you wait no more! It is time for you to socialize in your best track suit and take it out for a few drinks and some dancing with it's friends. It is time for the 7th Annual Track Suit Invitational - FRIDAY APRIL 26TH. For those of you who are unaware of what the TrackSuit Invitational is, it is an annual "sporting event" ... or pub crawl. We invite like minded, track suit loving, cocktail/beer drinking, fun loving folks out for a night of sharing their best (but least worn in public) outfit in the company of friends. At this point in the invite we usually say that we do this for our own enjoyment and not for charity...but this year, we are rolling a bit differently. While we are still doing this for our own enjoyment, we are doing this for charity - for one of our own. Rule number 2 is that you MUST listen to the whistle and timer guy. You still have to listen to that guy, but we ask all of you to invite your friends and everyone that you can to also BE THERE for that guy. His name is Joel Mitchell and just before Christmas, he was diagnosed with Stage 4, Advance Testicular Cancer. The TrackSuit Invitational is naturally set up to transition to becoming a charity event, and this is the time to do it! So here is the low down: There is a neighborhood change. (OMG, I know!) We are moving to Ballard everyone! The pub crawl with start on April 26th at 7PM at a place still to be determined. We are going to spend time at 3 bars before heading to The Sunset at 9:00Pm for an awesome party with the bands IRON MIC and FEVERTON. The pub crawl portion will be free of charge, but once we get to the Sunset there will be a $10 cover. This will get you entry and a free TrackSuit Invitational 2013 T-Shirt. And we are not stopping there! We will be raffling off a ton of fun prizes and we will be doing a Bone Marrow Drive for Love Hope Strength! You will be able to purchase advance tickets online by going to http://www.sunsettavern.com/ These tickets should be available for purchase soon. We have still have some rules that you need to abide by. If you have not been to this event, please read these rules carefully. 1. You MUST be wearing a track SUIT. A full track SUIT. Leisure suits that are velour are acceptable. We will not accept track tops and jeans or track pants and a lame t-shirt. In the past, we have accepted Member's Only Jackets; it is not preferred, but it has been accepted. We will not even acknowledge your existence if you show up dressed inappropriately. If you choose to not wear a track suit, you CAN wear a giant banana costume or some other food costume. 2. You MUST listen to the whistle and timer guy. We have one every year. He keeps the time and keeps us moving. He is NOT responsible for you. If you get lost, it's your own damn fault. If you lose the group, too bad for you. If you can't find the group, then you are stupid and should just go home. 3. You MUST act responsibly. We are a new group to the Ballard area bars and we want you to be respectful. We are getting lucky and they are extending us some pretty sweet drink specials. Don't be an asshole, tip your bartender, and no chest bumpin' the bouncers because they will kill you. And of course, we ask everyone not to drink and drive. These are the basic rules. We don't ask for much. AND - this is a public event, bring ALL of your friends. But if they are jerks, leave them at home. **There is an exception to Rule #1 this year. If you are only attending the party at the Sunset, we will allow...regular clothes. If you are coming in regular clothes, do know that you might feel left out and quite a bit less comfortable than those wearing tracksuits - just so you know. Stay tuned for more updates and the Facebook invite (if you are on Facebook)!
"..Real artists who compose their own music, they are able to bring a sense of passion and individuality to every song in their debut album Iron Mic 206. A fusion of rock, hip-hop and funk their first album is energetic and lyrically cerebral. To be compared to another would be impossible. They are reminiscent of many, but unique to their core."
