Remember how I said I might be doing some costume wearing for Baltimore Sun? Well, I am not the most on-Web person, so I’m assuming they found other folks to do the Halloween costume stuff. But, it’s okay. Y’know why?
Won a pig.
At tonight’s Pigtown Happy Hour at the new Caribbean restaurant Steel Drum Cafe on Washington Boulevard, they had a raffle. The raffle is to help raise funds for the Pigtown Holiday Party, so we can give gifts to the kids in the neighborhood. Yay, right? Totally yay! So I bought a few raffle tickets and figured that’d be my donation.
But…I won! A pig! An adorable pig that is almost the size of Miss Lily. It’s on my Billy bookcase in the front room, underneath the pig picture that I got as a housewarming prezzie from Pigtown earlier this year.
I’m even happier thanks to the WAY strong drink I had at the Cafe. I can’t exactly remember what was in the “Howling” (or was that “Howler”? Dunno.) But it was kinda minty with the Creme De Menthe and neon blue with the Blue Curacao…and I nursed it for the full two hours. Not because I was limiting myself, but because it was that much of a liquor punch. In a very good way. At the bottom were to maraschino cherries, giving the look of two eyeballs at the bottom of the glass. Kewl!
Here are a few pics from the happy hour, taken from my poor abused cell phone. Next phone? Will have a flash. Trust.
