Hilary was kind enough to set up a Happy Hour event at one of our favorite places, Ted’s Bulletin. With only two days left to prepare for the #DCMMPiratePicnic, we knew turnout would be low. After all, pirate costumes, pies, and side dishes take time, right?
Rey and I were the first to arrive and we enjoyed a spirited discussion about my new job and his commute. Hilary arrived shortly after and Melissa was right behind her. We all ordered some dinner and the bartender suggested some Tots with bacon and cheese.
Nick arrived right before the torrential downpours.
When Craig arrived we had a full table!
Sadly, Haemish had to go back to work and he was the first to leave us.
We discussed our plans for the #DCMMPiratePicnic and who was bringing what for the pie contest and the side dish contest. I’m feeling pretty confident about my Treasure Island Pie (good luck Quitta!)
We noticed that Rey ordered a cup of coffee…
It was time to go so we all settled our bills.
And then we all walked outside to discover the sun shining and the birds singing!
We all walked over to the Target parking lot, because free parking!
And we stopped for the obligatory Target selfie.
Craig and Melissa had parked near me, which meant we got to spend some time talking about our cars!
And we even took a few shots to use for our pending DCMM T Shirt Campaign!
