Wild Onion's European Vacation

Our friend Blottie fooled us into thinking she was taking a vacation in the south of France. Today she let us all know that she isn't going overseas for the month. So I decided we should all go together...

We will fly first class of course.

We can go see the Eiffel Tower.
We'll go to the top and look down on the locals!

We'll go the Louvre.
Let's bring some of Suzanne's art
and hang it ourselves.

We'll visit the French Riviera.

We'll dine on authentic French Cuisine.
Damn, those portions look really small.

We will hit the wine regions of France.
Suzanne can be our designated driver.

We'll go sightseeing in the French Alps.

The ladies can go shopping for French fashion.
The guys will check out the French models.

It's a Labor Day, three-day long weekend, so we'll have more time together. Don't worry, Jorge can take good care of the Cafe while we are gone. We can leave him french fries so he won't feel bad about missing France.

We Won!!!

This amazing award arrived via Skeeter at Thanks honey!!! It's comes with lots of rules, but I don't know how to get them here. Look, I don't even know how to cut and past his name over his url! Can someone help me? And Cece, can you please transfer this to our sidebar because you're the boss and own this joint.

By the way...I love our blog too. Do you all realize we've been together almost a year? Someone's going to have to throw a party. I'm still recovering from the last one, so we need some new imagination. It's amazing that 1Pic brought us all together and that CSI's test is responsible for the cafe. Well of course I'm laughing. The original cafe was a hoot! Man did Robyn and Gig work hard!!! I hope Brian never erases that joint cuz it's nice to go back and visit.

We won an award from Skeeter. Wowweezer. It's a keeper. Cece, how do I get it here?

Seeing as how we have been losing some business because we have no one on staff, I've opened an honor bar portion of the cafe. This section will be available to repeat customers only. So.... Folks its Friday, help yourselves, bar is open!!!

***UPDATE ***
Jo, the rest is coming. I was working on
it till the wee hours of mourn, but unable to finish.
Now I'm running behind, so
probably won't post until later this afternoon.
Sorry about that. XO
Happy Birthday to our dear Jo!
I just realized your birthday is tomorrow for us,
but today for you,
so you're only getting the bouquet today.
The BIG reveal is tomorrow because
I'm still working on the party!!!
Please tell me you aren't sleeping,
and I blew it.
Hope you're having a beautiful day.
The Wild Onion Gang
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Jo~Jo,
Happy Birthday to you.
And many more.

The Monday Morning After...

I want to thank each and every one of my dear, dear friends for making my birthday insanely fun. I'll never forget it, and frankly you shouldn't either! Can hardly wait to turn 50!!! Of course I'm laughing and I think I'm still drunk. Good Lord. Okay, well I'll just keep sweeping up around here in an effort to get the joint back to normal. I've let all the unhired/unpaid help go home, so it's just me kickin' the disco ball around and listening to (gfvf ~ Sage just wrote that) Elton.

God I love this place. The coffee's hot and I bought donuts.

The Day After

Many thanks to Leah for getting a jump start on the cleaning this morning. Wow, that was quite a 24-hour party for Suzanne...

Of course, there was plenty of bubbly to go around.
I don't know how that noisemaker ended up in the hanging fern planter.
I suspect that some Random Chick did it.

I'm telling you, all of that confetti ended up everywhere.
I'll be vacuuming up this stuff for weeks.
I may have to make a rule about confetti at future parties.

The balloons were all droopy this morning.
Even the smiley faces were upside down and frowning.
It's almost like they had hangovers too.

There are plates of half-eaten food scattered around the place.
It all tasted delicious. I'll be washing dishes for days.

Oh boy... I've filled the dumpster out back.
Who knew we could make this much trash?

Eventually it was too much for one lowly bartender to handle.
I had to call in the experts. These three guys proudly show
all of the empty bottles they will recycle from last night's party.
They said it was their biggest job ever!

Don't worry... I'll have this place back into shape by happy hour. Until then, place your empties on the tray at the corner of the bar.

... pops two Advil... puts the Olympics on the big screen, plasma HDTV and continues to wash dishes and pick confetti out of my hair.
