Last weekend we went to the Seder Compound for the first time. My company (esg) provides one free night per month there (and you can bring your partner so long as you're married). You can save up your nights and we didn't go in January so we'd have two nights in February. We decided to go during the Valentine's Day party. It was a real hoot. Balloons, paper raffia, candles and a completely mediocre buffet. It reminded us of prom. Many of the women seemed to have pulled out decades old prom dresses for the even as well. The average age for men there was between 50 and 60 and the women were between 30 and 40. Seriously, the evening was a delight. And that DJ. I mean, what says Valentine's Day 2015 better than Leann Rimes 1997 hit "How Do I Live?"
We had so much fun.
There was also wine sold surreptitiously ...from the bar of all places. It came in a plastic 1.5L water jug wrapped in a plastic shopping bag. Every single table had wine (and they were auctioning off an enormous bottle of gin), yet the waiter still looked as if demons might fly in and carry him away each time he made a sale. Most of our crew had bad reactions to the wine (it's bootlegged by amateurs, so it's imperative to be cautious), but Ian and I were fine. We drink an awful lot of water.
I want to watch last week's The Walking Dead, so I'm going to leave you with some pictures.
