Huge thanks to Guy Fieri, and his crew for showing us a great time this past weekend. Guy was in town taping the first episode of his new show “Tailgate Warriors” – what is this show about? Imagine a Food Network challenge, only more awesome because it’s all about tailgating & crazy football fans. They had a team of Hawks fans take on a team of Packers fans. I learned that those shows take a lot longer than what you think…they started at noon, and didn’t finish taping until 6pm…all for an hour show. It was so much fun to watch the process…and to go around to all of the tailgating tents to sample what people are making…be sure to watch the video blog all this week to check out our experience. I do have to say that I tried a deep fried turkey, and that changed my life…wow, that tastes amazing…thanks Derek for letting us try your stuff! Also…I have to say Jimbo, The Cowbell Dude is the ultimate stoner…his tailgating features all types of food that are wrapped with bacon. It was hilarious…bacon wrapped jalapeños, sliders, corn dogs, moon pies (yes moon pies), and more.
After we tailgated (thanks to the dudes from Mikes Chili, and Voulas for feeding us & providing great entertainment), we went to the game with Guy & his crew…that was so awesome. Check us out hanging with Guy (Miles & Ted from the Men’s Room, Miles’ sister, BJ, my lady, and I):
We all look possessed in this pic!
Huge thanks to everyone that came out to the New Originals show on Friday night…what a blast!!!!
This is the story of the day…it’s like a female version of The Hangover:
A 31-year-old woman from Bellevue, Washington . . . whose name hasn't been released . . . held her bachelorette party on Friday . . . the night before her wedding. Around 6:00 A.M. on Saturday morning, the police pulled her over, after they spotted her doing more than 90 miles-an-hour down the highway. She blew a .146 on the breathalyzer, almost double the legal limit. During the stop, she told the cops she'd gotten a DUI before, so she knew the drill. She also told the cops she was heading home from her bachelorette party, and that her wedding was that afternoon. They processed her for her DUI, and then let her take a cab home so she could still be at her wedding.
I can just picture the wedding vows… "Do you take this woman, through sickness & in health, driving hammered & getting nailed, in prison or not…til’ death do you part?”
