I worked on Saturday in town and had lunch at our favorite Mexican joint. They recently added a full bar to the establishment. Anyway, as I am paying my check, the proprietress (who is a heck of a nice gal) says in her heavily accented English "We (nodding to the only waitress there) will be working very late tonight. We open to 2:00 AM, going to have a bonfire in back, and serving until then. We work, but they party." The mental image of a bunch of drunken yahoos, in town, with a bonfire out back of a restaurant at 2 in the morning crosses my mind and I think "oh my ...", but paid my tab, said thanks, and left. Hopefully everyone is OK and the place is still standing. ;)

Were not drinkers, my wife came home with a bottle of champagne.
It's still unopen, and like the 10 year old one in the garage will probably remain that way.
With two young kids, we got them in bed, watched a little TV, and then in bed by 11:30pm.
With work lately and the two kids one still gets up a couple times a night ( 11mths) we usually aren't up for partying.

Man it was great had a few couples over, and one of them brought a hot looking redhead,I think she was half wasted when she got here. As the night progresses she decided to do a table dance and a striptease. Just as the dress started to come off the other half woke me up a said if your going to sleep go to bed.

Are you sure you don't have a long lost identical twin brother? We have a ten year old bottle of Champer's in the garage fridge! Can't stand the stuff, somebody gave it to Wifey many years ago and I've just never thrown it out or opened it.

"New Year's Eve" at our house.....This year, just like any other night, in bed about ten. I/we USED to stay up and drink heavily, and feel like crap in the morning. We don't do that any more. Last time I stayed up past midnight on New Years, couple years ago probably, I had to drink an energy drink at about 7:00pm. I'd sip Gin and Tonic to the point of pleasantly tipsy. I still wake up at 5:00-6:00 am though, feeling punk.

I was really hoping that was a true story. :D

Are we just a bunch of boring old guys? I know @NoLimePlease isn't an OF yet, but so few stories of any of us at least staying up 'till midnight? I can't do it myself anymore, but I want to hear some good stories from the younger crowd, with pictures a plus!

Such as.....

LMAO... reminds me of my tour of duty in Germany... we found a passed out dude (named Hawkins) passed out COLD, so we pulled his pants around his ankles, took laundry markers (that's what "Sharpies" were called back then) "Groucho Marxed" his eyebrows, "stitches" and "black eyes", then made a HUGE Santa beard on his face with Barbasol (that's old school canned shaving cream for you young punks) and emptied the rest of the can on his crotch and left him there... a veritable Picasso!

The closest thing we had for "instant" photos back then were Poloroid cameras, and they were too expensive (and fragile/bulky) for young soldiers to bother with... wish I had a photo of that one though!


It was one of the funniest things I ever saw. :s0108:
