Good Bye Parties Are Fun

April 20, 2007

In the business I'm in, there's a lot of turnover. People come and go it seems in two year cycles. More than likely because that's the term of a lot of contracts. Either way, we had as four-part going away party on Friday, April 20th. Here I am with two of the departing. Steve is going to work on a cruise ship. Lindsay went to Kentucky to produce. That's where her family is. Jesse calls Steve a pirate. So maybe his home is really at sea.

We started at the Hofbrahaus, which is my least favorite place to party. I don't like beer and I don't eat a lot of what they serve. So I arrived late, and stood around while the beer drinkers drank beer. It was a nice pre-party atmosphere though, complete with a live band. Look at the size of that beer.

Thank goodness the Hofbrahaus closes at midnight. We then went across the street to the Hard Rock. There we did much of the same. We stood around and talked shop, even though we hate talking about work. We met some tourists and laughed at the drunk ones. Honestly, I don't know where the time went. Once I checked, and it was 4 in the morning. People started going home around 5. Somehow I didn't make it home until 9. Of course I took a lot of pictures and I had a fabulous time.
