White. Trash. Bash. The 3rd Annual.

Hey there, hi there, ho there.  Let's finally talk WTB.  The Third Annual. It happened last Saturday, July 23rd--in case you weren't fawning over that kickass flier on your right.                                                    

I'm hoping by now you've gotten caught up:

  • it was amazing.  
  • The bands were AWESOME!  
  • Per usual, everyone was dressed to the nines.
  • I understand you're jeal.  You can totally come next year!  

    But chenyways ( J.Chen's word suggestion!).....Again, LOTS of prep time.  I started trashing the place on Wednesday night, starting with the living room and kitchen.  Thursday night I strung all the lights in the front yard, set up the santa and snowman inflatables, and nailed tarps to the walls of the garage so our bands would feel totally at home.  :-)  Friday, well, it rained.  Hardcore.  Thunder and lightening.  Baby Bacon was NOT happy.  It threaten to rain on Saturday as well--seriously, I've never been so obsessed with the weather!  Ever.  Like buying new apps for my iPhone just so I could be up to the second on any and all sprinkle embarking on MY DAY.  But guess what?  Like every other year we've hosted, it did not rain.  Nope.  It was muggy.  And steamy.  And 90 degrees.  And well, again, AWESOME.

    I told you that we dubbed this the concert series, right?  Haha, look at this photo!  Chairs galore.  

    Ok, before I get to the goods (read photos of us) I wanted to share with you my new  Signature WTB Jungle Juice Recipe. I decided to go this route this year due to the overwhelming time AND cost of jello shots.  Mostly time--We're talking like 10 hours start to finish.  This takes, oh, about 5 MINUTES.  

    B. Chen's WTB Juice:

    1 gallon Meijer (store-brand) orange drink
    2 2 liters fruit punch (Hawaiian Punch)
    1 liter sparkling tangerine-lime
    1 2 liter ruby red squirt
    1 2 liter sunkist
    1 blue Hawaiian boones
    1.75 L Bacardi
    1.75 L cherry vodka
    2 5ths peach schnapps  
    2 lbs of Frozen Fruit 
    1 5 gal Cooler--we used one of those big orange drink dispensers you see on football sidelines.

    Add fruit to cooler.  Add all liquid to cooler.  Mix it all together.  Drink.
    *note, the frozen fruit is to keep it cool--ice just waters it down.  Serve your ice on the side.  Oh, and the fruit it just a sneaky as the drink itself--you've been warned.

    On to the photos!

    Wow. Words have taken flight. If I were there in person, I would totally start the "slow clap" in total admiration for what you have accomplished in your neighborhood. Kudos. That's all I can say.
