a worthy birthday…

March 1, 2011

this is a birthday party good enough to get outta bed for.

but, lemme just say…

i hate people’s birthdays. why? ’cause they’re stupid. and the “parties” that go with them these days are even stupider.

no one sends out pink sparkly invites asking for an RSVP. there aren’t any Little Mermaid cakes and there is definitely no mint chocolate chip ice cream. i made people dress up as the cast from Grease THREE different times throughout the course of my childhood. don’t even get me started on wrapping presents, or if your mom was a lazy, uncreative bitch she’d buy a $20 contempo casuals gift ceretificate. last thought….goodie bags?! ugh.

today, we’re lucky if we get an enthusiastic (if that’s even possible) facebook invite where commitment means clicking the accept button. and then it just becomes a few friends that show up/happen to be in the same place buying well shots and getting shitfaced because YOU’RE getting older. slash it was wednesday.

but the birthday party you should go to is at the Redwood tonight. the bar turns five years old today and this place deserves some serious slum-dog love. granted the last time i was there i was sooo drunk i could barely pay my tab (sorry). that just means the bartenders take their jobs seriously.

you don’t have to bring a tower records gift card and the goodie bags come in the form of drink specials.

YES PLEASE.

neumos turns 5!

June 4, 2009

helio

so, if your a guy like me there’s always a night that ends up a little crazier than expected, which may or may not result in leaving your card open come stumble home time.

let’s pretend you’re exactly like me: you walk into that same bar the following night, after work, expecting to take care of business and then mosey on home.

(remember, you’re still me) you get convinced to sit down and have one drink… which ends up being 5..or 11…shots don’t really count as drinks, right?

but this story isn’t my unquenchable thirst for hard cider, it is about neumo’s free (!) 5 year anniversary party.

the dirt: walk into moe bar(soon) order a drink and ask for a ticket to the anniversary party. you’ll be hooked up with a free concert ticket to see the helio sequence on june 18th for the neumo’s birthday bash. it’s that easy. everyone loves stuff for free, but just don’t forget to leave your moe bar hottie bartender a good tip.

boooya.

nonameet nona

this rockin’ skank thought she’d get a little older. blame her motivation on the free tequila shots(not the guaranteed hang over)….she and the gang will be rejoicing the fact that this little lady is turning  26 at this new place called the cha cha lounge located on pike street. not sure if you’ve heard about it….

wanna know a little more before you commit to the madness? check out her hileb survey answers:

1. Your go to watering hole/food fest, the place you always end up and don’t mind at all.

i like to keep things classic. stay in the trifecta, ya feel? cha cha, moe bar, etc. but if i’m feeling the hunger pains, i go to redwood. cream corn nuggs…delish.
2. Your “alternative brand identity” prop. The one thing you must wear/use/do that makes you who you are. Examples: red bandana, backstreet boy sweatshirt, turntables.
i wear a fanny pack and spandex. because you never know when you’re gonna need to flashdance.
3. The show line-up of your dreams: who is it, where is it at and what would you be on?
kanye west, pharrell, kings of leon and boyz II men. it’s in my backyard. i am in the hot tub, i am on pharrell.
4. Your hung-over, broke as fuck and have no clean laundry but it is monday night so you are of course going out. Where ya goingyou lush?

linda’s to see dj juanita and dj lovinz. then over to moe bar to see my lady bartenders, britt and becks. thanks for still serving me late night, ladies, even though it always ends up in coat loss and walks of shame.
5. A classic survey question. Sum up your Capitol Hill in three words.
what just happened?

so if you know her, or even if you don’t, get out there and make some memories…cause lets be honest. memories are all we got these days!

xoxox missy! happpppppppy birthday!

happy birthday CHS

big momma is turning 3! 

photo-65

jesus! blogging for three long years. that’s a whole lotta screen time. 

the progression  of the ‘premiere’ capitol hill blog, chs, is pretty impressive. they started out tiny and now they’re HUGE. and by huge i mean, killer readership. 

though we dog them for being a little too family friendly, we read everyday. actually we don’t just read, we steal stories/ideas/news etc from them as often as we can. kinda like taking a twenty out of moms purse when she wasn’t looking. hope they don’t mind. 

regardless, chs has become a staple to the seattle online blog community and we’re happy to share this hill with ’em. 

alright, chs. we challenge you to come out tonight. i know its a work nite but we don’t care. it’s monday and it’s time to party.

do you accept?  you know where we’ll be

this is belated. 

he was belig

will was turning 24 last night and he was not afraid to let you know. 

this is our virtual birthday cake player. 

i bet your feeling g-g-g-reat today. 

thanks to mount dungeon for the pic.
