Ever wanted to have a fancy night out on the town, I’m talking being decked out in glamorous duds with your ‘do perfectly coiffed? Well on Wednesday, September 22, 2010, a select group of bloggers will get the chance to do just that. Today the Blogger Prom Committee, of which I am a member, announced the where, the when and the what of Blogger Prom 2010. And if you were lucky enough to go to last year’s prom, know that this year’s event will blow that kitschy-cute ’80s party out of the water.

Our new venue will be the gorgeous and historic Yamashiro restaurant that overlooks Hollywood. Just perfect considering our theme is Hollywood Confidential where our guests will be attired a la the Golden Age of Cinema. The outfits of the evening will take their cues from Grace Kelley, Ava Gardner, Katherine Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart. And you know how we were about the dress code last year. We’re dead serious here. No glam, no entry. But more on that later.

Getting glammed up will be a small price to pay as we’ll have delicious bites provided by Yamashiro, a signature cocktail created by the Liquid Muse, dancing and of course raffles with awesome prizes. Oh, and you can’t forget having the chance to meet Tweeps you’ve only known by screennames.

In any case, we’re assembling our invite list now and will be even pickier and stricter about who we let in. So why am I telling you about this awesome party if you might not make it on the list? Well, if anything to give props to Yamashiro and let you know that you should check it out, if not on Blogger Prom night then during its Thursday night farmer’s market and to try its affordable new bar bites menu.

Keep an eye on our official Blogger Prom Blog for incoming details on the food, booze, attire, and The List.

Shout out to my fellow BPC members! This is going to be a really fun event to pull off.
