St. Patrick's Pub Crawl

Due to the Irish/American Club disbanding, there was no parade this year. That didn't stop the Pub Crawl. We started at The Palm's Krystal Bar for food and drinks.

Then we headed to town. Our first stop was Casey's Pizza at McMorran. The had The Cabana Boys playing. We couldn't believe it but they played The Unicorn Song, of coures we danced to it. I really like the way this guy was dressed! Is that Jim with a beer? WOW! Steve took a selfie of all of us.

After a couple of drinks and some dancing we were off to Brass Rail. We really liked the decorations. Erik had a St. Patrick's koozie!

It was really crowded there so we were off again to Lynch's. They had Jell-O shots there, YES! This is what happens when Jim takes Candi's beer away and hides it. She is not happy!

Soon we headed out again. We tried to get the Cherries at The Roche, but they were all out. So off we went to Port Huron Yacht Club. They had an Irish Band playing. Also had the Apple Pie drink, so good! They also played The Unicorn Song. Tom got his Guinness and Steve is double fisted drinking. At some point we got a table. Didn't think we all would fit at that table so some of us grabbed another. Sue didn't like that and thumbed her nose at us. It is all in good fun!

Had a few drinks there and enjoyed the music. Then we tried to get into Wings Etc.. but it was too crowded. Went next to The Zebra Bar. They had a DJ and we found a table so we stayed.

Then we decided to get our cars and head to The Moose Lodge. Stone Fish was playing there, not bad, we did some dancing.

About 10:00 there was only 4 of us left so we called it a night and headed home. Great Pub Crawl all. We should do this again next year! Wait we do this every year! Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!!

New Year's Eve Party

Lucky for us our favorite band, 10 Beach Drive was playing at the Eagles Lodge for NYE so we got invited. Members, Ken and Deb signed us all in, good thing because we had a large group. Some Parrot Heads made decorations and some brought our left over hats and horns from when we put on NYE.

We were able to get our own drinks by saying we are with the band.

The band was getting ready to play.

We were waiting for the fun to begin. The girls got a pic together and Jim had to photo bomb us. Also a pic with the band and family.

Do you understand Ken's outfit? He has a White Sport Coat and Pink Crustacean, like the name of Jimmy Buffett's album!! Very clever Ken! Also we need more Cow Bell!!

We danced the night away while waiting for the big event.

As midnight got closer the Eagles passed out champagne. Then came the big moment...5..4..3..2.1 Happy New Year!!

Then started the hugs, kisses and greetings! The band played until 1:00. We all had a great time with friends. That is the way to start off the new year! Then we took one last picture of all the Parrot Heads that were there.

Thank you to the Eagles Lodge for letting us come in for their party. Thank you to 10 Beach Drive for playing and inviting us. Happy New Year everyone!
