#HollaDaysCLE + New Year's Eve fun

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Over a week later and I'm still coming down from the 4th Annual New Year's Eve Eve Holla Days Festival of Awesomeness Party that Lzone and I threw at Mahall's 20 Lanes in Lakewood.

Each year we throw the #HollaDaysCLE party it gets better and better (here's '09, '10 and '11). This year that was in part thanks to my good friends at Mahall's, because if you can remember, we go way back, and they helped make our party that much more fun. If you haven't had a chance to get to Mahall's I highly recommend stopping by to enjoy Emily's specialty cocktails, checking out a show and eating some fried chicken and tacos - you won't regret it.

Now, onto the pictures....

Lzone, Seanski and I had a crafting session pre-HollaDays and to say it tuned out interesting would be an understatement. As Lzone kept saying, "They're New Year's babies!!!" -- mmmhmmm, sure, they're just creepy and hilarious to me.

Emily concocted some specialty drinks for #HollaDaysCLE, the LZone-3000 (for Lzone) and the Debutante (for me, Greek girls Holla!) + some of the spread of cheese, Greek dips, flavored popcorn and cocktail fixings. 

Here's me and Lzone the #HollaDaysCLE hostesses with the mostesses.

StarfaceSnowinFace, Tami and Maura + MOB and Muffin + Shibani, Suzanne, Eamon and Nick + Jessica, Kayla and Gina + Alana and Kimi + Julie and Brian

The fabulous Zone family + Rossi squared + Glynis and Beaver + Ginenne, Fatty, Alex and Nina +  The hottest gays in Cleveland: PJ, Shane, Seanski and Nugget + Ryan, Shibani and Michelle

It was around here the wheels started to come off... Julie and Seanski dancing + Ginenne bowling +  Jeff and Deano + Ben and AJP + daaaaaaaaancing + me fixing my tights on stage of course

Thanks to everyone who came out, it's like we took over Mahall's music room, bar and both levels of lanes - maybe next year Lzone and I will hire a professional photographer so I don't miss anything. GREAT TIMES.

Now where the heck are we going to host the 5th annual #HollaDaysCLE?!?

On the actual New Year's Eve CK and I headed over to Andy and Ginenne's house in Lakewood for a holiday culmination party with great friends. We drank lots of bubbles and bourbon and enjoyed delicious food while midnight toasting and ringing in 2013 properly and I couldn't have been happier.

The ladies + the fellas + me, Ginenne and Andy poppin' confetti + Fireball Whiskey shot time, aka my new favorite shot

It's going to be a great year, I can feel it.

Happy Tuesday, kids.
