We are feeling Fin-tastic!  Why? Because our Club Unicorn Beach Bash was a blast. In fact, we had so much fun that we felt happier than a seagull with a French fry!  Nearly 400 adults kicked off their flip flops and really came out of their shell.  The Beach Boys were jammin' from our D.J. booth and all our dancers were keeping it reel.
