"Bowling Bonanza"

This weekend another infamous dress up get together took place. My husband is getting pretty good at crafting witty e-vites (see the bowling e-vite below)

Bring your balls to this Badass Bowling Bonanza!
It’s a little short notice but we’re long overdue for a good bit of dress-up.  As expected, appropriate attire is required.  Guys – be prepared to look like total scumbags, a la Kingpin or Big Lebowski.  Ladies – be thinking, ‘if I were a hooker, what would I wear?’  Or anything equally trashy would work just as well. 
We will plan to meet at Highland Lanes at 183 & Burnet around 8pm.  If interested, we will also plan to eat at Taqueria Arandas a couple blocks south on Burnet around  7, so let me know if you’ll be joining us.  After bowling, we will likely find ourselves in the middle of another mustache dance party at our house .  Just be normal. Can’t wait to see you there!

Like the invitation stated, festivities began at a local taqueria around the corner from our house where 7 of us feasted on greasy enchiladas in full 70's (or in the girls case, white trash) garb. Luckily we live less than a mile from an awesome Goodwill that Jon keeps in business with his costume buys. We were gchatting on Friday afternoon when he wrote this...
mr.jonhart: i wish i could get paid to be a costume consultant
I can't wait to see what he comes up with for Halloween this year! 
Bowling was next up and the girls chose to sit and cheer on our men gossip and drink cocktails while the guys made the night into one big drinking game. 
 Jon worked on taming his hair all day

Justin is wearing an authentic 70's outfit straight out of his dad's closet... hysterical!


Colombian drug lord or guy from Casino?

Check out what Mary found in the bathroom hmmm
 Ladies, he's single...
The night ended with froyo and beer at our house. OH! And the Newberry's were so sweet to duck out on froyo in favor of toilet papering our casa!! It was funny. I am just glad it was them and not some hater
This picture cracks me up!! Ernie and his 2 legged girlfriend (and an Old English 40!)

And how could I forget?? We actually turned the Honey Badger video into a drinking game (see yesterday's post for the actual vid). Warning...you will get tipsy drinking everytime he says "honey badger".

So question time!! Do you and your friends ever dress up for fun or plan a themed outing? I hope we aren't the only weirdos who love any excuse to dress up!

This is such an awesome party, and the evite is hysterical! We LOVE costume parties, and this has given me some great ideas! One of my favorites, and most recent, was for my birthday in May. My friends threw me an 80's/Nerd themed party. If you want to see photos, look here: http://cupcakesandablog.blogspot.com/2011/05/best-birthday-party-ever.html
Have a great day! :)

I am hoping Halloween is a good one this year. I love the white trash attire hehe! We call it "Whiskey Tango" up here! I NEED to come visit you and be a part of the debauchery!

The Arizona Russums said...

this is hilarious! and, yes, my friends dress up for bowling as well, even if we all just wear the same color. i am still trying to get someone to do a geriatric themed party with me. we did one in college and it was awesome, but i have yet to convince anyone in AZ to dress like an old person with me! maybe i will have to come down to austin and dress up with y'all!
