fun in o-hi-yer

of course you can't be in Cleve*land without a visit to the Q... to see the Lake Erie Monsters

And of course we need a bowling birthday:

which is never complete, btw, without white Russians, a la Big Lebowski

and of course, birthday boy Bill in drag. ;)

Then, we must celebrate New Years, and of course we celebrate on the 27th at 9:00 p.m.

But you can't just celebrate New Years, it needs to have a totally unrelated theme.
Like the Olympics.

(or "wearing stuff from your collegiate years." We're not picky.)

We dress up as athletes from assorted countries (Germany, France, and Germany again)

Sweden (please note our medals. it was a big year for Sweden)

Doesn't everyone make a fake ball drop at 9:00,

then run to the end of the street to see how many cars you can stop by pressing the crosswalk button?

And it's totally normal to cap off the night by posing for a family picture with the panda
(since the Olympics were in China)
