Well, I mean, they celebrated at one year, and so last week, but it took me a bit of time to get things uploaded.
So last week Marshall, Anthony, and I ventured down to Hogo for their one year anniversary party.
If you haven’t been to Hogo, you should definitely come visit. The theme is “tiki nuevo” and they not only have great tiki drinks but also a good menu. There were some specials going on that night:
If you have been to Hogo, you might remember Tom’s Rum Punch as one of the original drinks on the menu. It was always one of my favorites, too. The whiskey painkiller was also quite tasty.
Speaking of Tom, he was working the DJ booth. While we got there a bit early it was already jumping, and by the time it was supposed to really kick off (around 10) the joint was packed.
Dani was shaking up drinks like crazy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the bar that busy — fortunately, I managed to get a good picture (after about three attempts) while she wasn’t quite as slammed.
Fortunately, she also had help — Cameron was there, too, and knocking out the drinks.
As the night went on, more and more folks we knew showed up. I managed to get a little bit of food in me, mostly enough to avoid having Marshall kick me in the balls, and stole Mick’s seat to eat it.
To be honest, I should’ve ordered more than one, but still it was very tasty.
Mick used the time out of his seat well, however. He broke out the remote controlled inflatable shark blimp/helicopter thingamabob (that’s an engineering term) and flew it over the crowd. Marshall took the time to get this video of it, which I uploaded to YouTube — so break out the speakers.
All in all it was a great time! Let’s hear it for another good year for Hogo!
