Drunk Like A Pirate

Location: Phoenix Club in #Anaheim

Date: January 23rd, 2016

Occasion: Pirate Ball

Pirate Ball: come one, come all!  Last Saturday was the 2nd Annual Piratenball at the Phoenix Club.  I was lucky enough to hear about it ahead of time so we all planned and dressed up and pre-gamed beforehand and then we set ourselves loose on the Ball!

That day also happened to be the very day my sister-in-law, one Miss Olivia Noel, was celebrating her birthday.  A lady never reveals her true age so I don’t know how old she actually turned but i’m sure it’s around 21.  So we all got together at Heather and Paul’s place to have beer and snacks and cake for her birthday, that was a blast.

There was a great selection of beers in the fridge but what did I grab?  A Bud.  That’s right…I’ll stick to my 5% Bud, tried and true.  Ha.  We were there about 2 hours and I had 3 beers.  Everybody except me had shots of Catch Fire, with the excuse that I had been recovering from a case of bronchitis that won’t go away.  I didn’t want to get too drunk ahead of time because I was ready to go all night long.  Catch Fire is the best tasting alternative to FireBall.  It is not as sweet and goes down smoother.  We started out years ago with the FireBall standard and now we all happily enjoy Catch Fire for our Pirate Shots.  Don’t get me wrong, i’ll still drink FireBall any day of the week but I prefer Catch Fire.  If I drank shots at home, it would be Catch Fire shots.  Even though there is half a bottle of FireBall in my freezer.  I’m such a contradiction.

At the Pirate Ball, I traded up for some of the Phoenix Club’s generic Oktoberfest beer.  Damn, it was so good!  Like I mentioned before, I had been sick and I hadn’t been drinking so that fine beer went down like a dyke at a girl scouts meeting.  Gross, btw.  That was the best I could do.  Sorry.

Sean had Kostriker and that was dark and hearty.  I drank a Bitburger for my last beer.  I got so drunk that by 9:00, I was on the dance floor with all the other Pirates.  Sean and I only danced for one song but it was incredibly romantic (queue violins, release the doves).  We never dance because I am hardly ever that inebriated where there is an opportunity.  I’m one of those people that dances at weddings like a fool until I get out of breath, which only takes about 2 minutes.

We ended up finishing our beers and going out to the car to get another oxygen for me.  It seemed like we were gone only 5 minutes but by the time we got back, mostly everyone had left.  We ran into Olivia and Mat and they were on their way out as we were just coming back in.  So, oh well.  We were home safe by 10:30, where we had a couple more beers and then went off to sleepy time.  And I didn’t even wake up hungover the next day!  That’s a good moral.

I Won Star Munchkin the Double-B Way

The Double-B Way, you ask.  It sounds like an old timey western saloon.  But it means the Becks, Budweiser way.  Which seems to be the combination for an outstanding win of Star Munchkin. #munchkinandbeer #drunkmunchkining

So Wednesday night, Sean and I got together with Ck & Carie,  all three of them better known as: https://www.facebook.com/chuy.poluka.  #barroomjunies  We were all excited to be doing our game night again since we had taken a couple of weeks off for the holiday season.  And the holidays brought a slew of new Munchkin games to try out in the coming months.  I can’t wait!

We started out with a 12 pack of Beck’s.  German quality?  Is it made in Germany?  I don’t know.  I don’t really care.  As long as it gets me drunk.  It tastes pretty decent, too.

Between the four of us, the 12 pack was gone pretty quickly.  Out of necessity, we switched to Budweiser.  It was the same old, water-tasting, 5% Budweiser that i’m used to at home.  But damn, did we pound those things!  Cheap beer is easy to guzzle.  Go #cheapbeer!

I got drunk, Sean got drunk, Ck got drunk, Carie got maybe buzzed (she didn’t drink much).  We all had an awesome time.  We made plans to check out the new @HoparrazziBrewingCo on the 17th.  We also made plans for the Pirate Fest at the Anaheim Phoenix Club on the 23rd https://www.facebook.com/events/1709814889304829/.  I know we will have a great time at that because we get to dress up in our pirate gear and get drunk right down the street from my house.  Instead of going 45 minutes to the Renaissance Faire, paying $8.50 for one beer, getting almost drunk on those $8.50 beers, and then having to drive another 45 minutes home.  Much better!

Well, another drunk game night under my belt.  #Winning with the double-B’s!  That makes it seem like i’m promoting my breast size, which I am certainly not doing.  Get your drunk mind out of the gutter.
