2 Themed Pub Crawls (One Down)
In case it’s not obvious … this was an Ugly Sweater pub crawl. Rainbow Speak and I have an email list at work that we send information to whenever we try and get a group to do something. (We encourage anyone to spread info about events, but we are software engineers and the anomaly. That is, most of our co-workers say “ehh, no thanks” when it comes to doing … pretty much anything. Phew. Rant now over.)
Anywho. We contacted our co-workers and we got a group of 7 of us to go out looking like idiots! The manager of the place where we ate came up and thanked us for choosing his place, enjoyed our sweaters, and gave us 15% off! Whoo!
Now for the sweater by itself in all its glory …
My friends decided it looked like an old school Nintendo game, where the golfers get points for popping the hot air balloons with well-aimed shots.
Evening Museum Event
There were carolers! Eat your seasonal heart out.
This event was … ah forget it I’ll just use the site’s description.
“Tour the holiday-themed Yuletide display on the first floor of the house, with docents on hand to give insight to the period décor. Outside, relax with a cup of hot cider while you enjoy music and holiday cheer.“
Basically you walk around a jumbo house and see rooms decorated like they would be different years through history (at the least they had 1950s, 1790s, 1770s … others too).
It was a fun event. There were mascots too.
Rainbow Speak and I attended this, and we had an awkward exchange with the gingerbread man.
Gingerbread Man: Ohh, you’re tall!
GM: It must’ve been an awfully big oven to make you!!
Rainbow Speak: He was so big he needed two ovens!
First, the Gingerbread Man gives the weirdest yo mama so fat joke. THEN, Rainbow Speak implies that I have lesbian moms. Needless to say, this was my favorite part of the night.
One more picture? Ok, we’ll go out with a bang …
