Once again we donned our Idea Machine (see blog post below) and sure enough the Light Bulb lit up and an idea popped into our brain. Funny how that works.
This idea when from zero to sixty overnight and it's a done deal. We're hosting Game Day February 6th.
No, this is NOT a Stupor Bowl party. This is what is known far and wide as an Anti-Super Bowl Party. However, we're turning the "anti" part into a positive spin by calling our event simply Game Day.
It's a day for all our Dear Friends who loathe the hype and hyperbole of Stupor Bowl Sunday. We're going to have a plethora of our own games. There will be Mildly Extreme Croquet, horseshoes, badminton, bocce ball, lasso golf, darts and whatever else we can think of. There will also be cribbage, chess and checkers set up on the picnic table at the ramada.
Naturally, we're going to have lots of food, food and more food. Afterall, Game Day is really all about food. There will be mock-tailgating and faux-grilling. There will be finger food galore and beverages of all types will flow freely. All TV reception will be banned and nary a word spoken about that oddly shaped pigskin that big men tussle over.
Game Day will start about brunch time and continue until the light fades during campfire time. Our Dear Friends may come and go anytime they please. There won't be a set schedule. There won't be a Main Meal. In fact, there won't be any highlight event(s) for Game Day other than Fine Friendship and Food.
We know Game Day won't be for everyone as lots of our Dear Friends will enjoy the traditional rituals and hoopla of the Stupor Bowl itself. We sure don't want to dissuade anyone from partaking of this annual rite of TV advertiser passage. We are simply offering a really fun and festive alternative to business-as-usual on the first Sunday in February.
We will be sending out an email to our Dear Friends soon. In the meantime, we thought all our LBR's would enjoy seeing just how it works when we don the apparatus shown below. Cheers, jp
