One Bad Ass Happy Hour and a Last Minute Save
Where to begin with my recap? That it was fantastic? That my Co-Hosts are all confimed rocks stars and the only thing that could have possibly made it better was OG host Rock Star, Kathyn On, rolling in with her posse? That the shots flowed and new friends were made? It was all that. And more. A LOT more.
Let’s start at the beginning…
I rolled in at 8:00, dragging Arjewtino kicking and screaming the whole way. Apparently he was on Arentinian time and wanted to get there at 11:30, but I wasn’t havin’ it. And, from the moment we arrived, there were bloggers there and bloggers walking in the door. Within a very short amount of time the hosts were firing down the SC&L’s, inlcuding the Happy Birthday shot for RooshV and the party was underway.
I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many bloggers were there…there was no list that I kept…but there are pics out there to be seen, and I have to tell you…I’d be kind of afraid to see any of me. LORD, y’all just bring out the lush in me.
Grand Central? An excellent choice by Roosh and VK. They kept the vino flowin’ and the music goin’ and left the rest up to us. We squatted the entire lower floor area and just had at it.
And what did I learn on Friday? I learned the secret to having a rockin’ HH. You wanna know the secret to bad ass, hotel trashing, Oh My GOD I don’t want to see pictures Happy Hour? Shall I share it with you?
New Bloggers (and in some cases commenters)…
I’m telling you, that is the key. It’s the Holy Friggin’ Grail of the Happiest of Happy Happy (Joy Joy) Happy Hours. Can’t be beat. You mix in a strong supply of fun, hip writers with the old guard and POW! Instant Super Zen Happy Hour. You newbies can just PARTY. I can’t keep track of how many I met (and please do send me hate mail for this…I know, I know…) but I can say WOW! Our super heavy duty ultra cool clique is going to need more seats in the cafeteria.
I want to thank ALL of you that came out for the first time on Friday. You made that night just fantastic….and consequently, a subtle reminder…
When we announce the next one sometime in July, remember to invite the bloggers you read. You’ll thank me, trust me. Oh, and when there’s new people there you get to be the uber cool old school blogger they come to for introductions. And that’s a nice little cheap ego stroker, too.
Now then, for the “Last Minute Save” portion of our program…
My brother and his wife came home from the hospital on Sunday, but at some point during Saturday night they had an epiphany. I like to think that they heard my voice coming from somewhere in the cool Maine summer night…rolling in off the water with the fog and gently spilling in the hospital room…
“Brooklyn is a stripper name, yo…”
