VivaVoom brought up a burlesque troupe from Seattle to perform at Koots and in Homer, so we are hosting one of the ladies this week.  Very sweet girl.


Friday night LonelyDumptruck, Frankie, Lola and I met up to take the guys shopping for outfits to wears to the Burlesque Hall of Fame  at the end of the month.  We hit a couple different places, with moderate success, and then had dinner at Table 6.  They are actually serving a Coke and red wine cocktail.  They're charging too much, but it was tasty.


Saturday morning I finally got to strap on my skates and go coach Jr. Derby.  Most of the regular crew was off in Fairbanks, so I ended up in charge of all the littles for warm-ups and both teams of bigs for the practice scrimmage.


We have our last public scrimmage of the season next Saturday. I'd heard that the plan was to keep doing regular practices all Summer, but it sounds like that changed.


After that I just bunkered, napped and watched LonelyDumptruck play Borderlands.  We made peanut butter noodles and then met up with folks from VivaVoom to see Sinner Saint Burlesque.


Wow!!  Their show was flat-out amazing!  The overall theme was forces of nature, and the numbers spanned from one about gravity to the Goddess Diana and the hunt.   The MC did a boy-lesque number as a bird of paradise with the full voice over from an episode of Planet Earth.  Seriously amazing stuff.  There were not after-show plans, so we just got too much Taco Bell and sat up until after 2 talking with our houseguest.


Sunday morning came early, and with the discovery that our box of wine had been leaking into the fridge all night long, so I cleaned that up and then we went to brunch with Stephanie, The Boy Who Kisses JDawgsPI and Geolinguist.  It was Beer and Bacon Day at Midnight Sun Brewery -  one piece of bacon per beer (per person).  We were those people and ordered an extra round of bacon.


Frankie and Lola turned their anniversary party into a bbq for the visiting burlesquers so we made brown rice salad for that.  I'd forgotten how awesome that dish is even though it used to be one of my go-to party foods.


It was actually a beautiful day after all the snow we got Friday and Saturday, so Stephanie and LonelyDumptruck rode their bikes to the party.  Frankie grilled up way too much food and we got to sit around the firepit and talk until late.


Good times.
