Buy Tickets Now

Come party like it's 1894 at the San Jose Woman's Clubhouse!Dance to your favorite classic rock performed live by Pearl Alley, enjoy great cocktails and noshes, and drop your bloomies with us.

We're collecting at least 1,000 pairs of woman's panties that will be distributed by HomeFirst Services, an organization that provides housing and services for Santa Clara County's 6,500 homeless. Panties are one of the least donated and most needed items for homeless women. Such a small item can mean the difference between dignity and shame for a woman who already has a fragile sense of self. 

Bring 5 pairs of panties and get a discount ticket price of just $25. Or we'll purchase the panties and drop them for you with an advance ticket price of $40. Tickets $50 at the door. 

Love to dress up? Steampunk or Vintage dress admired. Bloomies were popularized by Amelia Bloomer, who advocated them as part of the 19th century women's dress reform movement.
