    I've been to 2 Sub Balls. It's nice but I'm always left starving afterwards because the food isn't that great...LOL! It can get pricey, when you factor in the cost of:
    babysitting
    new shoes
    new dress
    salon fees(manicure, pedicure, hair, etc.)
    Room
    parking $$
    sub ball tix
    Photos, if you get them
    and the list can continue...LOL!!!

    As my friend said on another board puts it, "its boring, ya pay to listen to people talk and eat not so great food with people you are just pretending to like" LOL!!!

    The one last year did suck. I went two our first two in Guam it totally rocked. The food was good and yes the talking is awful but after that is over it is dancing, mingling and drinking. In my opinion it is fun. This year it is in Seattle for those of us in WA. My hubby and I are getting a hotel room and having a blast after the ball we are headed out on the town with friends In my opinion it is a chance for you to dress up and be treated like a princess. Something we don't get to do to often. So I take advantage of it every year.

    We went to the one last year and I think it was in october/november time. All I know it felt strange because I was in a tux and my wife was in her uniform so that was different. We plan to go to all of them if we can because we enjoy mingling with everyone and that way I can see everyone and put faces to the names on that huge ass ship, lol.
