Ginenne's Bachelorette Party Weekend in Put-in-Bay

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Congratulations to Jen from Why CLE? for winning herself a pair of ticket to see Chicago (the band) from Live Nation Cleveland - thanks for all who entered! 


I told you guys it was going to be the summer of fun.... and this past weekend proves it just keeps on going with a trip to Put-in-Bay Island to celebrate Ginenne's bachelorette party!

Friday early afternoon Steph, Ginenne and Nina and I stuffed more luggage and supplies into an SUV with four people in it than I ever could have imagine. Not sure how we made it, but we did, just in time for the 2:30pm Miller Boat Line ferry to Put-in-Bay.

Upon arrival to PIB we headed straight to the Island Club were we checked-in to our rental for the weekend, cracked a beer and waited for more friends to roll in. We also hopped in our 8-person golf cart and cocktailed it up at Mojito Bay, easily one of our favorite spots of the weekend. 

Who loves a boat prop photo opp? We do! + Sisters swinging + part of the jam packed car....

As night fell the Canadian Soldiers/Mayflies/etc fell like a blanket over PIB - good thing we could just dance them away. With stops at The Boathouse Bar for Disco and T&J's Smokehouse for country we showed no music prejudice although Ginenne's heart was with country and the Scott Thompson Band.

When I was in college at UD everyone drank Beast Light, I did not like Beast Light, so I drank Andre Spumante - while my taste in bubbles may have evolved from Andre, it started at a very young age. + #WhatDeeryWore poolside on Saturday + the bride-to-be looking stunning and ready for her night on the town

A lot may have gone down between the nice sissy picture of Steph and Ginenne and the shot of Court drawing on a rando's shirt, e.g., getting caught in the rain on a gold cart while being attacked by giant bugs and bull riding - but while I may not have photographic proof of it all it was a DAMN good time!

If the bachelorette party was any indication of the fun that will be had at Ginenne and Andy's wedding in less than a month (!!!!), I simply can't wait. To the bride and groom!

Normally one uses Sunday post-bachelorette party to recuperate - well, not me when there are friends from San Francisco in town. Sunday funday reunited my old boss Gil (and his partner Kyle) and his Scene Magazine ladies at the newly opened Townhall in Ohio City for brunch/lunch and cocktails. It was SO great catching up with everyone, it was like it was '05 all over again!

As for a Townhall review, I will definitely give it another shot, but my experience wasn't all that hot - in summary it was very weak drinks, a very inexperienced waitress and so-so food.

Gil, me, Kyle, JenWhite (one word), Trapp and Bird!

Another awesome weekend in the books... Can't stop, won't stop!

Happy Wednesday, kids.
