Rent Party Rag

Ah, the joys of being a landlord...  truly, because I'm lucky to have great renters.  They pay on time and mix great drinks to celebrate the occasion!  For March 1st, we had an experienced bartender hired for the evening, and a super chocolate cake for a simultaneous birthday party.  Here's the prep and our mixologist:



Our host toasts his guests and the evening to come (danger, danger, will robinson...)



And my first drink of the evening, a beautifully concocted Catalina Margarita...


Then the women showed up, and things really got rolling...


The birthday boy hides his age behind the booze...


If you are going to get drunk and rowdy, best to invite the neighbors, even if they are teetotalling... or is that teatotalling?


A couple of us took a more modest approach to the evening...  rather wise as it turned out...


Because the party cat looks worried...


Our bartender demonstrates how to create a perfect twist...


Creating the perfect drink...  a St. Germaine...  the liquore, a bunch of stuff, topped with champaign...


Then things started getting out of hand...  or mouth...  or just messes...



Thankfully reinforcements arrived to help with bartending chores...


And yet another great drink...  a dirty girl scout...  tastes just like a thin mint...


Apologies for the fuzzy picture, and the next ones to follow, hard to focus about this time at night.  And our host also lost focus...  man down!

 
Leading to the close of the evening...  (our host did survive...)


At least we have whole month to recover...
