Recapping the soiree
My head hurts.
Last night's soiree was a smashing success! We had a great turnout -- the Idle Hour (201 E. Fort Ave.) was packed.
BA, Jmgiordano, Mobtown Molly, m, Crazy Joe, Roommate Patchen, Jeremy, gidg, Jason and Evan were but a few of the Midnight Sunners who showed up.
This was the first and last soiree that coincides with a Ravens game, by the way. That was a big mistake I shall not repeat. Parking was a nightmare!
It was also a little awkward when the occasional random bar-goer would saunter in and I would be like "Are you here for the soiree?" and they'd go all deer in headlights on me. After a while, I just started slapping name tags on people.
Jason brought an awesome spread of ribs, crab cakes, chicken kabobs and vegetables. Thanks again, man.
Courtney took a bunch of photos, some of which I will share with you now ...
Evan brought his glorious bacon vodka, which was better than the shot I tried at Captain Larry's. But bacon vodka sounds better than it actually is.
Here I am, bacon vodka shot in hand, toasting Midnight Sun and Idle Hour and God knows what else.
This is me and Evan after the shot. I can still taste it in my mouth, which is really nasty.
Roommate Patchen started dropping shots of bacon vodka into pints of Resurrection and chugging them.
He offered me one. I cringed, respectfully declined and watched from the sidelines. That was probably the best decision I made all night.
I tried to confuse people by swapping name tags with Brendan, the bartender and co-owner. It worked on BA, who did a double take when he came in.
But I eventually gave up the ruse and stuck another sticker on my vest.
In case you're curious, the whole white shirt, vest and jeans is my tribute to Art Garfunkel.
