Git Along Little Guru

By Stephanie Farrington

 On March 31, IS 183 will host their annual fundraising blow-out. 

This year's extravaganza will be called Buckaroo Bollywood. Should you decide to go, you'll be served extravagant dishes of barbecue and Indian delicacies under colorful tents and later, after you've stuffed yourself on every possible delicacy eight local chefs can dream up, you'll boogie down Bollywood style under colorful chiffon tents, peacock lanterns, floating mirrors and cowgirl murals.

If you're thirsty, there will be a blue elephant dispensing beer through its trunk. Don't feel like dancing? Well, you can take a spin on an adult-sized hobby horse and maybe rope a filly or two. 

iBerkshires visited the site while the decorations were still going up. Here are a few photos, the whole thing already looks like a rootin' tootin' good time! Dinner tickets are nearly sold out but dance tickets are available for $50 each with the proceeds going to IS 183's public school programs. So if you want to get your guru-groove on, get your chaps over to this fundraiser. How often are you going to get the chance to get a beer from a blue elephant - for real?

 Decorator Joe Wheaton, ropes Seth (an IS 183 Board Member) while Caitlin looks on.

 

 At your service. (And you don't have to be tipsy to see it.)
