Please define "awesome" as it relates to the dress code? I've got two very non-stylish males to dress here.
Her Holiness the Rev. Holly Z, KSCsharkcowsheep on November 16th, 2009 07:34 pm (UTC)
Totally usurping Sean's judgment call here, but I'd say that in the absence of fabulousness, business casual is a safe bet?
St. Sean the Amusedseanb on November 16th, 2009 07:53 pm (UTC)
Agreed. Most of my coworkers and Kyna's skating people are going to default to business casual.

She said "only my Dad is allowed to wear sweats".
