Expecting good things from you in the future," wrote an excited user. "Omg it was so awesome, I wish I had found it earlier in the evening, I crashed at 1.30 am," wrote another.
Thanks for the dance party last night @djdnice. Pajamas acceptable, nobody to judge my dance moves, all the snacks I preferred - honestly we should do this more often.— Chasten Buttigieg (@Chas10Buttigieg) March 22, 2020
