XXV: “Te audire no possum Musa sapientum fixa est in aure” (Approximate Translation: A Grand Festival Celebrating the 25th Birthday of the Inimitable Rita Bonita)

When:
July 26, 2014 @ 3:00 pm
Where:
3012 Gary Ave Manhattan, KS

Ahhh…late October…love is in there air…at least, that is the conclusion to be drawn, given that so many wonderful people share their birthdays approximately nine months later ;) In honor of the many awesome individuals who have a late-July birthday (including but not limited to Rita Davis, Mary Ruzicka, Theron Welch, Zach Filbert, Eric Wicks, J-Lo, and Bindi Sue Irwin) the Gary House is graciously hosting a gathering of good people to collectively recognize and celebrate these fantastic folk. The party will commence at 3:00 PM with yard games and light mingling. Later in the evening our superb hosts will be providing BBQ chicken and mini sliders for our enjoyment…as this is a potluck dinner, please plan on bringing a side for the enjoyment of all. Posted below in the comment section is a space for people to list what type of food they are planning on providing (in hopes of preventing the “63,081-Bags-Of-Chips-But-Only-One-Bowl-Of-Salsa” phenomena that sometimes occurs at these types of events). After dinner is concluded, the festivities will continue, featuring more merriment and adult beverages. While this is a BYOB, there will be a cocktail-ish beverage made available for those among us who enjoy sweet things. Please also note that, while there will be limited space inside for guests to sleep, the backyard will be open to anyone wanting to camp. We look forward to sharing this evening of jubilation and joyful debauchery with you :)
