We’ve got a number of social engagements coming up, and maybe you’d like to come to them? I don’t know, but if you did, here they are.
October 23, 2009 – Game Night
My D&D group usually meets on Friday nights, but with Ryan’s wedding and subsequent honeymoon our group hasn’t been traversing dungeons as usual. Since Ryan will be out of town this night, we’re going to shift to a board game, and I’m thinking Runebound just because it keeps with the D&Dishness of our usual Friday evenings. If you’d like to join in, the game can support six people and we only have… well, four, but feel free to come by and check it out! We also have several other board games as well as Rock Band 2, so there’s that.
October 27, 2009 – Pumpkin Carving
In preparation for our kickin’ Halloween Party, we’re going to carve some pumpkins for decoration. April and I will buy a few (probably 4-6) and people can carve on those, but people are welcome (and encouraged) to bring their own pumpkins and pumpkin it up! I’m scheduling this for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
October 31, 2009 – Halloween Party and Kitten Birthday
Yeah yeah, it’s Halloween, but our kittens are also ONE YEAR OLD. This is a BIG DEAL to April, so we’re having a birthday party for them.
We have a theme and that theme is DON KNOTTS. Dress up as your favourite Don Knotts character and we’ll be playing movies featuring him all night.
Party starts at 5 p.m. and will feature DISASTROUS DRINKS as well as TERRIFYING FOODS and fantastic Halloween Videos like Scooby Doo and… I don’t know, SOMETHING ELSE that may or may not feature Don Knotts. Our neighborhood’s also got a ton of kids, so we’ll be handing out candy pretty constantly for an hour or two.
If you’ve got kids and want to take them trick or treating, feel free to bring them around 🙂 Our neighborhood’s a good one for it. Just be aware that the party will be an Adult Party which means there will be Adult Language and Alcoholic Beverages. Younger kids might be bored and/or hear things you don’t want them to, so just be aware of this.
Party goes to midnight, and April has a trip downtown to the Spook Show scheduled at 9 p.m. I don’t know what that is and probably won’t go so, YOU KNOW, whatever floats your boat.
PS if you’re dressing up as a (Don Knotts) pirate you should probably bring rum because there can never be enough rum yo-ho yo-ho
November 14, 2009 – Neighbourhood Dinner Party
This is for a relatively small group of people, but if you live around us, you should come to dinner on Saturday, November 14th at 6 p.m. I intend to bake a spiral ham and we’ll have water, iced tea, and wine. Please bring a side dish and/or dessert.
In particular this is for Vineyard Friends, but if you’re not a Vineyard person and still want to come, you ought to. Good times await!
