Dave!And soooo... my sister called up yesterday and wanted to know if I was interested in going up to Lake Chelan for their Winterfest celebration. Her husband would be driving, so we could take full advantage of all the festivities they had to offer.

And so we did. A lot.

Chelan is a summer resort town at the end of Lake Chelan in central Washington State. During the summer months, the place is absolutely packed with everybody converging to hang out in the city's ample sunshine. There's tons of stuff to do, including swimming, boating, water-skiing, a water-slide park, loads of wineries, and so-on and so-on. During the winter, however, the place is pretty much dead. To remedy this, they came up with Winterfest, which has live music, ice skating, parades, fireworks, and drinking...

We didn't listen to live music or go ice skating or watch the parade or even see the fireworks. Which left only one thing left to do...

Mini Jäger Bottle and Maxi Jäger Bottle!
Started with a mini-bottle, finished with a maxi-bottle!

Luckily, we ran across a back-up driver if we needed one...

Spider-Car! Spider-Car! Does whatever a Spider-Car does!

Or I suppose we could have hitched a ride on a horse and buggy...

Unfortunately, the drive-in was closed, so they had no money for some Budweiser.

The bank in town had constructed a bar out of ice, which was pretty cool. If you bought a badge for $7, your first drink was free!

And so the night of drunken debauchery begins!

My sister bought us light sabers. We were already well on our way towards getting smashed, so these were about the coolest thing in the world at this point...

After a delicious dinner at Tin Lilly's, we started bar-hopping...

Any guess as to what I might be drinking?

Bar mats are getting more and more awesome. If anybody from Jägermeister is reading, I want one of these pretty bad. Since my annual budget for your product could fund a small country and provides a significant chunk of your annual profits, I think it's the least you could do to send me one (UPDATE: As Kathairna points out, this sweet bar mat is not the Jäger stag's head logo, but instead the very cool Bacardi bat logo, which is still awesome despite my devotion to Jägermeister!)...

The best back for a shot of Jäger? A Jäger Bomb, of course!

The Jägermeister is a critical component to enjoying your evening when karaoke is your night's entertainment...

You're Horny Let's Do It Lyrics!
You're Horny. Let's do it! Ride my pony!!

And while I'm not going to lie and say that we didn't have entirely too good of a time. We didn't have such a good time that I ended up passed out on the floor where six rescue guys had to come collect us...

Rescue Drunk Guy!
You can't see him, but the guy is on the floor. Happy. Or perhaps not.

And that's pretty much it. That heavens I had photographic evidence or else I wouldn't have remembered most of this.

Until next year!

    Somehow I get the impression that it’s not as cold there as it is here…

    We could use a Winterfest. Those light sabers look sweet!

  2. Sybil Law says:

    What are the penis things on the ice bar?!
    Light sabers! Jaeger! You!
    Damn – what’s not to love?!

  3. Foo says:

    Those light sabers are awesome! Jägermeister, ice bars and cop photos… good times indeed!

  4. Christopher Stogdill says:

    You lost me at Jager…..I hate the stuff. Glad to know there was a reason behind your drunken tweets.

    • Dave2 says:

      I’m not sure I can think of a reason for drunken tweets other than alcohol. Especially since 95% of my tweets were links to photos showing alcohol.

  5. Brandon says:

    I really enjoyed sitting at home with a newborn living vicariously through your tweets. I felt a little drunk by proxy.

  6. Kathairna says:

    The bar mat is from Bacardi. I can’t find it online anywhere (at least not this particular style), but I’ll keep my eyes open…

    • Dave2 says:

      D’oh! You’re right! Jäger would be the stag’s head logo! Must be my love of bats (and too many shots of Jäger) clouding my brain! 🙂 I still think this is an amazingly cool bar mat.

  7. martymankins says:

    OMG. Drunk Dave. How awesome is that? Huh? Awesome!

    Looks like you had a great night. How could you not with Jäger involved.

  8. Invader_Stu says:

    When ever I am out drinking with friends I always know that the start of Jager drinking is the beginning of the end that will involve a lot of memory loss.

  9. the muskrat says:

    I don’t like Jager. It makes me hurl.

    But I have been to the Bacardi alpha chapter in PR and love the more expensive blends they have!

    • Dave2 says:

      It’s odd… Jägermeister is the one drink that rarely gives me a hangover. I have to drink EXTREME AMOUNTS in order to be undead the next day. Like I did this time. Oh well.

      I do like Bacardi, but don’t drink a lot of rum. Somewhere I had “The Big Apple” Bacardi that was incredible.
