I had a low-key(ish) weekend. I took Friday off because my husband was having some minor surgery. The surgery went well and he came home on Saturday morning. He didn’t want to stay in the hospital overnight, but the doctor wanted to be sure he was all clear. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been sleeping well because of the discomfort, but he’s getting better each day. Aside from that, I did go out for a nice dinner over the weekend. I have the leftovers in the fridge!
On Sunday night, I went to a pop-up oyster party with some friends. It was so fun! The party was Mad Men themed. I managed to pull together an outfit with things I already had. The parties are always at a “secret” location, apparently. This was my first one. It was sponsored by Bombay Sapphire, so the only drinks served were gin-based.
At first I was hesitant about that. But out of 4 different gin drinks, there was only one I didn’t like. I’d say those are great odds. I also decided raw oysters aren’t so bad? Normally I only eat broiled oysters, but for the sake of the party, I tried a few raw ones. Plus I figured if I get a tape worm, that would be a great diet to follow for my upcoming honeymoon. Har har.
The party was at an old candle pin bowling alley. They had popup bars set up on each floor. The first floor had the oyster bar, and the second floor boasted a caviar bar complete with donuts and mini pancakes! There was also a DJ and the lanes were all open for party-goers to use. We played a string. I did bad, but I’m also not great at candle pin in general. Well, I’m also not great at regular 10 pin either, but I can somehow at least land a strike or two. After the party, we grabbed some burgers and made our way home.
