A friend and I frequently go to a classy cafe down in Durham, North Carolina. Once a month was our custom, but we've both gotten quite busy as of late and have had to repeatedly cancel our plans. We live in central Virginia so it's quite a haul to go there, but we make the journey because Virginia doesn't have nice things. It's a small cafe with no dress code, though the clientele are always decent, respectable people wearing befitting clothing, and there's always a jazz band playing. He reminded me that my birthday is next week (I would have forgotten had he not mentioned it) and we're determined to make the trip on Saturday, the 15th. My normal attire is a T-shirt and a pair of jeans. Nothing fancy but perfectly acceptable there. Seeing as this is a "special occasion," I decided to dress respectably this time. So my question to all of you is: which of the following do you prefer? How often to you "dress up" for fancy events? Do you ever over dress just for the fun of it? Personally, I find such clothing to be constricting and unpleasant and avoid dressing like that if at all possible. I've seen plenty of T-shirts and ordinary clothing around here, so post some of your more fancy attire if you wish, with or without you in them.
This thread is all about alcohol and drunk stories. We ask that you drink responsibly, and use any stories here as reasons to NOT get so drunk you don't remember the night. Now, with that being said, I'll start off the festivities. I recently went to Columbus with my best friend, Cmoore. We went to see Modest Mouse, and we lost our spot in line to go to the restrooms. Since we figured we would end up in back anyway, we started drinking at 3pm. 6 beers in, we got into the show where we each enjoyed three 32 ounce cups of beer. For those keeping count, that's 96 ounces a piece on top of the 6 beers each beforehand. An average beer is 12 ounces, 96/12=8, which is 14 beers. Followed by a double rum and coke. I actually remember the whole concert, but not going home. My memory returned when I sat down at the hotel WAY too fast and threw up on my pants. Ever done laundry in a hotel bathtub at 3am? It's an experience. All in all it was a great night, though. Modest Mouse is a FANTASTIC live show, and I recommend them. I'll try to post some drunk pictures on here soon, too.
