The Ritz

Steff, Laura & Dawni - The Ritz 1988

This is my absolute favorite picture from my Ritz days. The Ritz was an underage dance club and we went there every night it was open from 1987 until I got married in 1990. That’s Steff, me and Dawni the night we all dressed up the same. We did it just for fun and the whole night people kept coming up to us and saying, “Did you know that there are two other girls here dressed up just like you?” It was awesome.

I took this picture with the 110 camera that my grandma gave me for my fifth grade year in school. I thought I took so many pictures with that camera until I got a digital camera and indiscriminately take photos of EVERYTHING now.

Luckily, my nose has grown substantially since then and it balances out my chin nicely now.

I had a lot of fun at The Ritz, but I don’t want to go back. Despite all that fun, I’m having much more fun now.



  1. That’s a great photo. It’s like you should be in a Robert Palmer video. :)

  3. Nice picture! You capture the attitude and look of the place so well. You’re not going to believe this but I used to go to the Ritz too.I shaved the side of my head and wore a lot of black. No wonder we get along so well. Fun times. But like you said, not so fun that I want to go back. But I wish I had some more pictures. – Janet
