hallelujah! THE DISCO RECAP IS UP.
Ease on over to the "Hood" for photos from our Disco Christmas Party.
Our quest for global domination: Hicks' pub south
As many of you know, we've expanded our empire. Introducing Hicks' Pub South!
Hicks is so excited, his pants blew off!
"Seriously, Dad, control yourself."
Although the previous owners clearly had impeccable taste, their technology was sub-par. With the help of Justin's keen supervisory skills, Hicks' was able to rectify the situtation.
Ahhhh...flat screen, much better. Note the super cool tiles of the kitchen counter. Again, the prior owners' tastes are far superior to ours.
See? We can only serve to redneck the place up with a beer surfboard and wooden signage.
Honestly, who can care about the interior when you have a view like this? Although, something is missing...
On the lanai, helpful directions to the beach. We're informative that way.
On the other end of the lanai, a table perfect for taking in the view, whilst having a beverage.
And to complete the tour, an exterior view of our building, from the vantage point of the pool.
In case you were wondering, the view from the pool doesn't suck, either.
Hicks' Pub Redneck Christmas photos are here!
Cue the angellic music because the recap is finally up! Click here or hop over to the Hood page for the full story and photos.
DECK CRAWL 2011:new photos!
Thanks to Mary Beth, we've got a few new photos to share. You rock, MB!Ah, the Roses. So moist and happy.
Susie, Beej, Tiff and MB. Party up top, foamy party down below.
Kevin is so blissfully happy, standard photography cannot properly capture him.
Another year, another pantless Hicks.
Upon seeing her pantsless son, Katie's brain exploded out the back of her head.
If this crew doesn't spell T-R-O-U-B-L-E, I don't know what does.
Over at the next stop, what's know in horseracing circles as the traditional starting sip.
And Tiff is out of the gate! That's my girl!
DECK CRAWL 2011: welcome to the club!
I know. I'm late with the recap, but what else is new?
First of all, I have to come clean with the fact that I don't have much photographic evidence when it comes to this year's Crawl. If you have photos or videos that you'd like to share with the class, please send them to me and I'll gladly post them. Like this:
Deck #1: Team Friend/Teepe were kind enough to take us to Bourbon Street. Tragically, I have no photos from that gathering. Suffice to say, if they choose to keep the postlamp/street sign that they had attached to their deck, that'd be totally kickass. That was sweet. Also sweet? MB's bourbon slushes. Good lord, those were heavenly. I later learned that they were low octane, in order to keep everyone upright for a while. Had I known that, I would've slammed four of those. I'd love to try the high-test grade sometime. You know, just for comparison. And I'd be remiss if I didn't swoon over the jumbalaya. Best stuff ever. I could eat that every day and twice on Sunday.
Deck #2: The Radtke's and Dames' (new players) went south of the border. Thank goodness, they put on quite a feast of Mexican delights (because I knew that the next stop was a food-free zone), as well as some kickin' margaritas. Their new patio was gorgeous and the glorious weather helped to make that stop a beautiful one (albeit short one for Hicks and me, as we had to prep for the next stop). Again, if anyone has photos to share, please send them over.
Deck #3: Hicks' Pub Player's Club. Okay for this, I do have a few photos to share...
Hey lookit that...we have a comment system! After years (YEARS!) of struggling to figure this crap out, I've finally cracked the code. Well, I actually found and paid for a code that works. Hallelujah! Pass the gravy!
I know it ain't purty, and I'll get to work on that. For now, I'm just making sure it works effectively in all its spartan glory. Please give it a try, so that I can see what's going on and then I can dial in from there. Thanks!
WHO'S READY FOR the deck crawl?
July 2. Our leg is from 7-8:00. Hicks will have to really pace himself this year, as he has an early afternoon flight the next day to freakin' AFRICA. Truth be told, though, it can almost be considered a local destination, all places considered.
