High Points - upcoming St. Pat's party
2nd Annual St. Patrick's Day Party
Time: 8 - until
# of guests expected: 30+
Power Hour: Power Hour will start between 9 and 9:30. For those not familiar with the game, it's played as this: one shot of beer a minute for sixty minutes. By the end of an hour, you've gone through approx. a 6-pack of beer. And you're relatively toasted, depending on your alcohol tolerance. The fun part about this is how we keep time: I have 60 clips of songs - anything from Marvin Gaye to the Eagles to Prince to... well, you get the idea - that are each a minute long. There is a doorbell at the end of each clip. Each time you hear the doorbell, take a shot of beer. This is pretty idiot proof, and a lot of fun, especially with a lot of people. Make sure the CD isn't on repeat or you'll drink forever and want to die.
Shamrock Juice: Revamped from last year, a bright green concoction containing several different types of alcohol, pineapple juice, sprite, and (new this year) green berry punch. Served up in a clear punchbowl decorated with shamrock stickers. Will be served all night (while supplies last).
Air Guitar Contest: Up to 8 contestants will show off their prowess as air guitarists, performing to classic "Airy" songs like Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple and Hotel California by the Eagles. Song clips will be between one and two minutes long and provided by the management. A sign up sheet will be available at the start of the party. Performance slots are first come first serve. A GRAND PRIZE will be awarded - including a 1967 Gibson Les Paul in Heritage Cherry Sunburst design, signed by Eddie Van Halen (air model of course). The rest of the GRAND PRIZE is currently being kept under wraps. THIS EVENT WILL BE VIDEOTAPED.
Fire pit: There will be an enclosed fire pit in the side yard for everyone's enjoyment.
There will be souvenirs, drinking games, music, and fun to be had all night long. Expect a full report on the party next week.
