Marty’s 9th Annual Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner

November 22nd, 2012 · No Comments

Last night Marty hosted his 9th annual pre-Thanksgiving dinner at Que Rico. At least we think it’s the 9th. I asked him when he first started the tradition and he thought it was 2003. Dallas and I went the year before last too and it was just as fun. Afterwards, they always go to Jack’s Tap, which is now called Diag Bar.

Sara’s 9th Annual Monday Before Thanksgiving Party

November 20th, 2012 · 4 Comments

Every year Sara has a Monday Before Thanksgiving Party. She makes a turkey and everyone else brings food to make a huge Thanksgiving feast. This year the party was at her friends Weiser, Lacy and Donovan’s gorgeous house. The food was all so good. I loved Emily’s sweet potatoes and Steve’s coleslaw and, of course, Jess’s pumpkin pie jello shots! And it was so fun to catch up with some of Sara’s friends who I haven’t seen for a while.

One of Sara’s friends has a daughter, Nell, who is a fantastic artist. She drew portraits of the guests, sometimes “regular” and sometimes zombified, much to the delight of everyone. I’m saving my portrait. When this girl is rich and famous I’ll have a signed work of art from Nell July dated November 19, 2012! And her sister, not to be upstaged, is going to be on an episode of Chicago Fire, which airs tomorrow night! I’m told to watch for the girl in the purple coat!

Last, but definitely not least, Sara made special Thanksgiving prints for everyone at the party. So cool!

And a note to myself: When you get a new phone, take the film off the back or else it’s not going to work that great, as you can see here!
