Katie and some friends met up with Jessica at CLub Brown South for a little r&r and a Girls Gone Wild week!
The first night started kinda slow as Jess went to bed early. She musta been tired from the trip!
St. Patricks Day was celebrated with a trip to a local eatery. I'll bet that's one fare the cab driver won't soon forget!
The girls were able to lounge around the pool and enjoy the new CLub waterfall and a variety of cool refreshing beverages. Everyone seemed to enjoy the much needed break from the rigors of college life.
TheMagic Decanter wine aeratoris not just a fun gadget, but an important tool when it comes to full wine enjoyment. By simply pouring wine through the wine aerator you expose your favorite beverage to the air which will soften the flavors and increase your enjoyment. It is an "instant gratification" ... and no longer do you have to wait to get the decanted results.
Watch as CLub member Denise Clarke makes a fool of herself demonstrating the operation of this finely tuned piece of equipment that turns ordinary wine into something extraordinary!
Manufacturers suggested retail price is $44.95
Brewski Bob has really gone to the wall for you guys on this one ... talks have been in the works for several months and after many tense moments and some possible blackmail, he has negotiated a very special price for CLub Brown members ONLY!
Every CLub member needs to have one of these handy wine aerators accessorizing their entertainment area!
So ... just click here and you will be transported to the page where you will find out how you can own one of your very own at a DEEP discount. Limited supply !
What a wonderful send-off for Bobby and Patti to Club Brown South. Sorry, that's the closest we could get them together that night (after all, they will be in close quarters for the whole ride to Florida!).
Soon, we will pass the torch for Club Management to the next generation,
or should we..............????????? Oops! Where's Jessica? Hopefully she's the piece of the puzzle that will bring it all together.
The current Club Management is having some thoughts about passing down the torch to the next generation (especially when the kids asked what our limit was on our charge cards!!).
Hey!! I recognize that kid, AGAIN!!!!! Who's watching the door???? Where's our security detail? Oh, wait! Management just realized that we don't have a security officer. That will have to be remedied at the next board meeting. Someone make a note of that.
Although our Club Health & Safety/Fire Suppression person may not look like he's on the ball (it's all part of his undercover work), he did find a safety concern below.
But Uncle Bobby says it will be OK until he returns in the spring!
Club Brown offered a function that was for early birds. The Club Brunch began at 10:00 in the morning - although we all know that it was 5 o'clock somewhere. As guests arrived, the player piano played some classical music to welcome those who entered through the front entryway. Many treats awaited those who were able to get out of bed early. Delectable delicacies included: scrambled eggs (72 of them), biscuits and gravy (80), bacon (5 pounds), sausage (3 pounds), sweet rolls, Julie's famous cinnamon rolls, fruit, bagels, desserts, and of course, Tony was there to assist those who were parched! The Tiki Bar was alive with Bloody Marys, Mimosas, screwdrivers, and whatever anyone desired. Sheila's fresh flowers added to the ambiance of the Sunday affair.
Some people found the early start time a bit difficult. Uncle Tommy was one of those. He did make it, though, wearing his favorite Sunday pajamas. Luckily for the rest of the attendees, he left his Teddy Bear at home.
Due to the ever growing Club Brown memberships, new members have to be taught the official Tiki Bar stance (aka "lean") to prepare for the after effects of the Club libations. Club Member Ritch is demonstrating the lean in this picture.
Sometimes there weren't enough hands to fully appreciate all the Club had to offer. (Pay no attention to the chap in the red hat pouring himself a drink at the bar.) Surely, the Club Brown bartenders check IDs. He told us he was 21. What color bracelet were we supposed to be wearing that day?
Not only were the food and drinks in abundance, but good conversation was overheard, also. As a matter of fact, if any of you need to "pimp your ride," from what management overheard, these two could get it done!!
The Club was also able to add to their membership roster at the brunch. Here's Marge discussing the Club benefits with our newest member, Elena.
Although the brunch went well into the evening...some did not make it to the afternoon. Again, isn't anybody checking IDs?????
The benefits of belonging to CLub Brown are numerous - as we are all aware. Cool beverages, refreshing pool, and tasty treats are offered at all CLub functions. But, did you know that CLub Brown board members are available on call to handle any emergency situations that might arise? Not only are they available on a consulting basis, but they are ready to make house calls as needed. Founding members illustrate this important perk as they assist another member whose husband left a totally inadequate lawn maintenance machine for her to operate in his absence. The recomendation from the CLub consultants was not to repair the piece of junk that was left for the wife to use, but to employ an expensive lawn service as soon as possible.
