As I See It - 02.01.16 - And yet, more alcohol

Let the drinking continue!

A work meeting at 4:30PM gives me carte blanche to drink, so I did because that's what you do at la griglia!

As I See It - 01.31.16 - Guess Who's Coming To Brunch

Just to be on the safe side, this is how my day started.

But before I could get on with my day, I had to return to the scene of the crime Limelight to help clean up. Included in the trash were Mardi Gras beads and people's dignity.

From Limelight, I went to the home of Gerard P. who co-hosted a group of people for HRC's Guess Who's Coming To Dinner. It was a fun time with nine other people, two who were new to me.

After a lovely brunch and good discussion, we made our way to Brent and Tommy's where all of the guess gathered for dessert and more cocktails. A beautiful home. A beautiful day. Beautiful people. A good cause.

As I See It - 01.30.16 - Animal Kingdom

It was the return of the Mystery and Fantasy Mardi Gras Party but before I could get my day started, I ran into these Polish treats at Kroger on Buffalo Speedway. One word: YUM!

This annual "party for a party's sake" was again, much fun. We had just under 1200 people so the crowd was manageable. Nothing like the 1500+ a few years ago.

In a Facebook message exchange with JD Arnold, I suggested he play some David Bowie...and he did...and he one of the songs was my favorite Let's Dance.

We've already set the date for next year but I'm not willing to reveal it just yet. Just remember...2016 was a short Mardi Gras season...2017 will be a bit longer.

As I See It - 01.29.16 - Be My Teddy Bear

I took the day off from work and spend most of the morning running around and before I knew it, The Calvinator was done at the groomer's office. It had been awhile since he had been coiffed and this teddy bear cut is a big hit!

As I See It - 01.28.16 - A Room With A View

Huddle room B and huddle room C at Legacy Community Health have great views of downtown. It was a picture perfect day.

As I See It - 01.27.16 - People who need people

This really hit home when I saw it. #enoughsaid

As I See It - 01.26.16 - Pansies

Whilst out strolling with The Calvinator, we happened across these pansies which just so happen to be Mardi Gras colours!
