Give Swank a Chance
"Swank" is one of those smarmy words like "posh" or "smooth" or, well, "smarmy." Originating from the German word "sway" and the Dutch word "supple," it aspires to have the dazzle of a diamond, but is tacky like a rhinestone. We picture a dancing chubby girl with her bedazzled name scrawled across a jiggling ass. Sigh.
But its time to give "swank" another chance, because Hotel Scottsdale's CeZar is redefining the word with its monthly Swank event. Turtle Productions and DMTV present a stellar club night featuring music by LuJuan and DJ Marc Anthony and drink specials by Tommy Bahama. At this rate, swank might soon become synonymous with class.
