Riding the Party Bus

A friend celebrated her 50th birthday last night by planning a surprise party for all of her friends - she is a party planner extraordinaire and has a very generous heart! In spite of the terrible weather (snow, fierce winds) we gathered at her place before the "party bus" arrived. Her bunny helpers (her oldest son and his friend-I found it amazing that they agreed to wear bunny suits!!) provided us all with mini sized bottles of liqueurs (which reminds me they are still in my purse...what's left of them that is...)
Bunny helpers!

All aboard!
The birthday girl dancing on the party bus!
While tunes from the 80's played we danced (at our own risk!) not knowing where the party bus was taking us! Our amazing hostess provided snacks and water bottles while guests brought any alcoholic beverages that they wanted.

*Note to self - when next on a party bus bring white wine instead or RED!!

Our first destination in Dorchester, Ontario

Michael and I at the Mill Pond Tap & Grill
Michael and I decided to NOT drink at each destination but to dance instead - a wise decision in the end as we are headache free today. However, we did end up with a few red wine stains on our clothing as drinking and dancing on a moving bus is a HIGH RISK activity! And oh yes, red wine in the eye DOES sting - who knew??

 Heading to the second destination - lots more dancing and snacking and falling on people's laps!
 And here we are at Tiger Jacks!
 The snow is starting to accumulate.

Once all the dancing was over and bars were visited the party bus took us back to the birthday girl's home where tons more food awaited us! I tried not to overdo it. It was a great party and ALL planned by the birthday girl herself! I've never been on a "party bus" before, in fact I didn't know there was such a thing having lived a rather sheltered (DULL) life. Its such a fun way of getting from place to place without the worry of anyone drinking and driving though we had to be prepared to catch each other when thrown off balance. No problem - that just added to the fun!

    Sounds like a fun night - but yikes - all that snow! I am such a ninny now when it comes to weather since moving to Vancouver Island.

  2. I'd love to go on a party bus and dance the night away. One miniature and a glass of wine would have been my limit...I ain't so young any more. OMG...those poor guys dressed as bunnies.They must love your friend very much (or have been bribed or blackmailed).

  3. These bunnies don't look too excited to me :) Your friend is definitely a party girl :)

  4. I would love to see Den and DJ in bunny outfits but it probably won't happen.
    And I need to be friends with your friends! AWESOME!

  5. Looks like a great time! Good to know about the red wine ;) Glad you're hangover free after all that fun!

  6. Wow. You got me at the bunny helpers. o_o
