Lest they forget their roots, this isn’t any kind of Birthday Party--
It’s The Shlain Seventies Triple Birthday Party Bash!
Think geodesic domes (we had), The Brady Bunch (we watched), Disco (we boogied), Zepplin (we rocked), Rubik's cube (Jordan’s 1st tv appearance), Judy Blume's "Forever" (page 82, "Ralph"), Paco Rabanne (we smelled), "Feeling Groovy," (we felt groovy), and so much more.
