21st annual Cabo Wabo Coat Party at Mellwood Arts Center

Cabo Wabo is a big fat party at Mellwood Arts Center thrown to benefit the Dream factory. There will be a cash bar and a giant dance floor (and I am told that lots of people dance, so get ready to boogie!), as well as performances from The Louisville Crashers and From Paris. Attendants are encouraged to bring a new or gently used coat to benefit St. Vincent's. There will be booze and fun times.
