It's a fundraising party, of sorts. We're asking everyone coming to donate to our upcoming three day 180 mile bike trek across Maine, in support of the American Lung Association and their ongoing effort to track, spay, or destroy all smokers.
(You can donate online here, if you're interested, and won't be able to make the party.)
Since it's in May, and the weather will theoretically be lovely, it's also a Welcome Summer Party.
And, finally, it's a Trashy Alcohol Party. We are buying Zima. We are buying Mike's Hard Lemonade. We are making Fuzzy Navels, and we might have some forties. I'm not providing it, but I wouldn't be surprised if people brought Jaegermeister, or Yukon Jack, or Rumpelmintz.
And that means, for the first time in my life, tonight I will be making Jello Shots. I made it almost 29 years without ever making or having a Jello shot, but tonight, that streak ends.
