C&S holiday soiree, UD COC and the Un-Xmas Party

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Per usual my weekend festivities started on a Thursday. It was an extra special Thursday though because it was the First Annual Column & Stripe Holiday Soiree at Great Lakes Brewing Company's tasting room.

Lots of work from the Cleveland Museum of Art's staff and the C&S Emerging Leaders Board (which I am a member of) went into planning this event and we couldn't have been happier with the results. We ate, we drank, we crafted and got to hang out with fellow, new and prospective Column & Stripe members. 

Some of the emerging leader board: Kevin, Lauren, Graham, Gina, me and Matt + Party shots!

Sad you couldn't attend or interested in becoming a member? Head over to the CMA website for more information on the group.

Friday night was an online shopping night for CK and I - knocking Christmas presents out like whoa with Aladdin's takeout.

Saturday was a mixed bag of giving back to the community with CK and I volunteering at the Cleveland Foodbank with fellow University of Dayton Cleveland Alumni for Christmas Off Campus (thanks c-rossi for organizing) and then attending an Un-Xmas party fulled of complete and utter debauchery and inappropriateness at Frank and Michelle's.  

Sorting food at the Cleveland Foodbank is fun! Especially when CK gets a box full of candy and we find out there's a peanut butter brand named "Nice!" - awesome.

I don't even know where to begin, but I'll try... Shots + The hottest game of 2012, BLADES + Lzone and Suzanne asking Santa Stephen for boyfriends for Christmas + Fishface and his Aunt Lisa + Suzanne and I competing in feats of strength, she won, I lost, but you guys also won because who doesn't love these pictures

For the record, these are the PG version photos, I don't know what it is with my friends this weekend and last weekend with all their holiday inappropriateness that I can't post on the plum.

They are pretty fun though, I'll keep um around.

Happy Tuesday, kids - two more days of work for me in 2012 - let the countdown to vacation begin!

  6. Working at a food bank sounds like it could be a lot of fun WHILE also giving back. Double whamy! No comment on the unmentionable photos. After the last one you shared, I'm not even sure whether I should be asking to see more. hahaha.
