and the winner is


Last night was a solid good time. Started with some Champagne and waited for the Appetizer station to open. Overloaded a plate, cleared it and went back for more.
With my second serving, I made the switch to Beer (Amstel Light). The first offerings included Salad bar, Veggie platters, Cheese, Bread and various cold bites. The show started and Dinner was served.

There were two set ups: one Italian and one Asian/Chinese. I started with the Chinese. Mixed Vegetable Stir Fry and Sweet Glazed Shrimp. Another Amstel. Then across the ballroom for Farfelle Pesto, Cheese Ravioli, Garlic Bread and Pizza.

I let that all settle and slipped off to the restroom. A pull from the flask (Jim Beam) and we are ready for more.
A pause in eating. Another round. Then the Dessert table began service. I waited for the line to die down. Got some Creme Carmel, a piece of Cake and a cup of Coffee.

With my belly full, I took a break from the action while they presented "Best Foreign Film". Another trip to the restroom.
One last Beer. The big awards. Then ended my night with a Champagne toast to "The Hurt Locker".

Time to leave.
Overall, another good party, but the Food quality was average and the Bar was sans Liquor. If my friends and my flask weren't there then I don't know what kind of night I would have had.

At least I didn't puke.

Do you think you got your money's worth?

If I had to pay bar prices plus dinner it would have been way more than $40 but the first year we went the event was free, so it's hard to keep shelling out cash.
