Okay, so there were no shots present, but the LCBO Cocktails event was still pretty killer.
I was stressing hardcore about what to wear, but luckily everything turned out okay. A black dress in a somewhat hourglass silhouette (if I had a C cup that is), a gorge mink hat with some netting from my gracious boss, and some seamed tights completed the ensemble.
Actually, apparently I looked so fine, that we were asked for our photos twice! Very cool. Here’s our digs: yeah yeah, I know they’re shady photos – we were stupid and forgot cameras!
The event itself was great. We only stayed for a couple of hours, it being a work night and us having a Dinner Party to throw tomorrow night, but we really enjoyed our time there.
Lots of great drinks were available, and luckily, my favorite was offered as well – Tequila Sunrise.
There are few things I love more than tequila, orange juice and grenadine, let me tell you. One of those things, however, might just be bartenders with extreme flair, who are throwing mixers and glasses every which way and looking super awesome while doing it. He preferred the more manly drinks, like the Rusty Nail or some other manly name.
Admittedly, I was worried. I’m such a crazy picky eater, and app’s are not really my specialty. So the first few apps that were offered to us, I abstained like a Christian 12-year-old. But man, then we hit the jack-pot. There were these amazing little sandwiches with ham and melted cheese, but they were in like a biscuit or something… seriously, delicious. I would like to go back to the 1960′s just for those lil thangs. There were also come chicken finger things going around. A) anything on a stick tastes better than normal B) I love chicken. Well done Carlu. I have yet to be disappointed by your snacks.
Everyone looked great. Okay, not true, but most people definitely did. Some people there were clearly trying to do the whole “Yeah, I know this is a dress-up costume-y affair, but I’ll wear my Nike sneakers anyway because they’re awesome” thing. Man, what are you, in high school? Just put on a suit or something. Or at least some black shoes? (Though they were really nice Nikes, I will say.)
All in all, He and I had a great time. I like these little after work events because they’re short and sweet. Sure, we could have stayed longer, but isn’t the best part about anything going home sometimes anyway?
