Friday - After work Friday, Chris and I headed out to Tide Pride so he could pick up a new Alabama tshirt to wear for Saturday. We made pizza like we do every Friday night and watched the first episode of South Park for the season. Don't ask me why I still watch this show. It came out when I was in high school and it is one of those shows that I watch out of obligation now. I fell asleep in the first five minutes if that tells you anything.
Saturday- I woke up and did the usual cleaning and made breakfast. Then we headed out for the day! We went to the new Bargain Hunt in Hoover where I scored some Pittsburgh Penguin glasses for ten cents! We also got Chris a beer glass that says "The Day is Only Wasted if I am Not." We thought that was pretty funny.
We then headed down to World of Beer to watch the GA vs LSU game. What a game, huh? I of course was pulling for the Dawgs and they kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time but were able to pull it out in the end. Yay! We were supposed to meet up with some of our friends at Rare Martini for a football party at 5:30 pm. You ask, football party? Chris won a football party on Facebook and was promised VIP seating for us and friends, free swag and 2 lbs of wings. We called ahead to let them know of our arrival and when we got there, Chris explains it best, "It looks like a dialysis waiting room in here!" So we announced ourselves and said we were there for the football party, one of the guys acted confused and was like well you can sit anywhere. They only had high top tables for 2 set up, not the party of 8 that we had coming. It was dead silent in the whole place, as three old guys sat at separate tables watching the one screen they had up. Chris told them we would need a minute, and we turned around and walked out. Chris called out friends outside and told them about how lame it was in there and that we would be heading back to WOB.
They met us up there, we ordered bar food and watched Alabama take down Ole Miss. Roll Tide! Well our friends decided that if there was free swag to be had, that we needed to head back over there and have it! So....we went back to Rare Martini. Luckily, there were more lively people in there later that evening. I have been there before, and just never really had a good time. I don't know why, I just don't like that place. But, sometimes it is the company you are with and not the venue that can make your night! Even though Rare Martini SCREWED us on our bar tab...because I was not drinking there so I knew exactly how much was ordered and they charged us about 3 times as much as should have been charged....we still had an excellent time with our friends!
Even though Rare Martini failed to provide the promised swag....we seemed to manage to find some! I present you with exhibit A and exhibit B.
Sunday - And since I am an old person, Sunday was a day for recovery of said shenanigans. I only had beers at WOB, and nothing to drink at Rare. Was not even buzzing the entire day....and yet I still laid on the couch all day yesterday morning the death of my youth and reminded myself that I simply can not just hang anymore. Either way, it was a fabulous time and I am sure that against my better judgement, it will happen again!
Oh, and by the way....I had the Woodchuck Fall Cider at WOB, and holy fall yummy in a cup! That shit was amazing and wonderful and everything I could ever ask a fall beer to be. You should try some, right now!
