Penny’s Pin Up Party: A Slightly Naughty Way to Make Nice by Ryan Smith

Friday, Sept. 1

More vintage vehicles, more oldies vibes, more rockabilly-type bands, more pin-up girls, more burlesque: More good, clean (well, yunno) fun.

But, as always, when it’s all for a more-than-worthy cause — say, to raise much-needed funds for Boro Women & Family Services (BWFS) — you can feel totally tidy in the ol’ conscience about getting a tiny bit dirty-minded at this year’s Penny’s Pin Up Party.

That kind of fun will be for the grown-ups during the night, anyway. This year’s Pin Up Erie-hosted party — happening at the newly-revamped, historic Conneaut Lake Park and Hotel Conneaut — also includes a whole portion of actually-family-friendly (and free to enter!) retro fun, too: from 4 to 8 p.m., everyone’s welcome to enjoy the cruise-in, live music, vendors, food, drinks, games, prizes and lots of other cool (and tame) stuff.

Then, starting at 8 p.m., 21+ party ticket-holders are invited to check out the crowning of Miss Pin Up Erie 2017, more live music, a burlesque show (ooh la la), and more, including specials on drinks and overnight stays at the awesomely historic Hotel Conneaut.

Through Pin-Up Erie’s female-forward photographic work, “we specialize in making women feel good about themselves,” chief photographer and owner Penny Shaut told me during a talk a while back.

And they definitely do that with this annual bash, too. The third event of its kind in as many years, all proceeds from Penny’s Pin-Up Party will once again directly benefit BWFS, which provides resources and support to local individuals and families in crisis throughout the Erie County area. — Ryan Smith
