After a couple of quiet weekends, this past Saturday was a charity ball that we went to for the second year in a row, except this time we had about 30 people in tow.
The theme is always a different color, and this year it was Rapt In Ruby, which mainly led to us being amazed at the number of guys that think a plain suit and a red tie is making an effort of any kind. Honestly, don't even bother showing up.
I went with a red cravat (which is not "a big tie", as I took great pleasure in correcting pretty much everyone who commented on it) on an otherwise black and white outfit. Nothing that special, but compared to the uniform every other male was wearing it attracted a decent amount of attention.
This was a photo from earlier in the evening:
No one actually remembers this one being taken, despite it only being around 10pm:
And I'm not ensure sure who the other people in this photo are, but according to their comments on my Facebook page we are totally BFF's (Best Friends Forever, in case anyone over the age of 43 is reading) and need to start planning the rest of our lives together:
In any case, it's been a long time since I had a 3am finish, so forgive me if I don't have any big nights out for a little while. I'm sure Juice will do something insanely stupid for us to laugh about in the meantime.
