It's a Green Day in HK
I didn't mean to lie to you. I promise more tales of exotic lands after I return from China. I just wanted to wish everyone at home a happy green day, from HK.
Rachel and Natalie
Went out with the regular crew, and Rachel suggested I invite my sole co-worker Vicky out for her first St. Patty's day. It was also her first time at Lan Kwai Fong (the bar hub) and her first time at a bar, ever.
Joel and the obligatory Guinness
I asked Vicky if her parents were upset that she was going out late on a work night, but they were actually thrilled that their little girl (who is my age) is going out and doing big girl kinda things.
Vicky wishes you peace on St. Patty's day.
We went to a couple Irish pubs, and it occured to me that I've never been to a pub on St. Patty's just because it's too impossible to get in. Vicky was a trooper and got through 3 drinks and was pummeled. And somehow, we played a decent round of Jenga.
Of course, the St P festivities kicked off over the weekend, and even though my Saturday started off kinda strange, it turned out to be a really fun night.
Alexis N Me, wandering the Fong.
Me n Beth, wandering the Fong.
We wandered, we snacked, we took a taxi to a party of an unknown address. We got there exactly the same time the cops did, but I bumped into my pal Daven and that was cool. We took the party to Dragon-I, where I kindly helped myself to the two costco-sized bottles of Grey Goose on the table. The party was headed elsewhere, but me and Sebastien had our priorities. We stuck to the vodka.
We shut that place down. And so did these folks. The details are kinda hazy, so I'm not really sure if this was two dudes...
