Event: The Dirty Dancing 25th Anniversary Celebration with Skinny Cow!

Last night I had the great pleasure of attending the Dirty Dancing 25th Anniversary Celebration, hosted by Skinny Cow!  I can hardly believe that it’s been 25 years since the moving came out – I still remember watching it as a kid (which, when I look back at it now, was probably highly inappropriate).  I didn’t understand everything 100% but still loved the dancing and had a major crush on Johnny Castle.

They transformed a whole theater into all things Dirty Dancing and Skinny Cow:

…and even had a signature drink – as someone who can almost quote this movie by heart, I got a kick out of all the puns and references!

And of course TONS and TONS of Skinny Cow products – including my favorite, the cones:

 as well as ice cream sandwiches, ice cream bars, their new candy (LOVED it, my new fave) and tons more.  The evening also featured life size photos of the stars, and memorabilia from the movie.  Here my date for the night, Sister Nosh, is a little too excited about Johnny Castle’s black tank:

As well as plenty of props that attendees could try on to take a picture with a Skinny Cow cut-out!

As “media”, we got to meet and greet with Jennifer Grey before the screening – here we are waiting, before she appeared (first photo):Skinny Cow

Aaaand, can I just say, I am so excited that I finally jumped on the Instagram bandwagon, because at the event were these super cute printers that instantly printed out any photos you took with Instagram and tagged #skinnydancing.  Loves it!

Cones, cones, and more cones….

This event was just fantastic – it’s one thing to be sitting on your couch at home, watching the DVD (true story), but a totally different experience to be surrounded by Dirty Dancing fans who, like you, sing along to the soundtrack, shout out the key lines, and cheer when Johnny’s totally wailing on Robbie.  Come on, don’t pretend like you don’t know what I mean ;).  A fun night had by all!!!

Are you a Dirty Dancing fan? What’s your favorite line or scene?

    My favorite part was when the entire audience giggled through the sex scene. Apparently we’re all still 12-year-old girls at a slumber party. Such a fun night all around!

    I think I looked the right amount of excited – I mean, it’s JOHNNY CASTLE’S TANK TOP! So many favs, but I love Baby & Johnny’s first dance to Love Man.
