Thirsty Thursday: The Loufest Edition

Aka: Justification for Heather’s impending liver transplant.

Having friends is great. They drive you to music festivals. They let you commandeer the stereo. And when you arrive to St. Louis around 7pm on a Friday night, they make sure to fill the next EIGHT hours with so much alcohol that you can’t even feel your face the time going by! 😉

Got a question for you guys…

Anyone ever heard of a shot called a Scooby Snack?

Scooby Snack Shots

How about a Cinnamon Bun?

Cinnamon Bun Shots

Or perhaps Chocolate Cake?

Chocolate Cake Shots

‘Nother question…HOW do these things taste NOTHING like alcohol?!

Where most of the people in attendance of Loufest this past weekend were busy raiding the bar for local Schlafly beer, I was chugging water and eating pretzels, swearing I’d never EVER drink again. Then, sure enough, once the festival ended each night and my friends were asking who wanted to go to Par, I was RIGHT back at it!

Par BartenderFor the record, Christina is the COOLEST bartender ever! And wasn’t even mad that we finished off an entire bottle of Midori…course that probably had something to do with our $300 bar tab on Saturday night. Wait, did I just say type that?

I’m pretty sure all the walking at the park, dancing at the bar, and laughing in the hotel room made up for the copious amounts of snacks, buns, cakes, AND 3am Courtesy Diner visits where all hailed the glorious plates of bacon, and pancakes, and biscuits and gravy, and hash browns and…

BaconOrder the Hoosier…add maple syrup…you WON’T regret it! I do regret not taking a picture, but it happens. So you’ll settle for this bacon pic instead! 😉

Though I will say that this weekend taught me that I’m not quite the spring chicken I used to be. Funny how 13 hours of sleep in 3 days PLUS 10 hours of travel time there and back will make you feel O-L-D! But I’m happy to say that after 14 hours of sleep Monday night plus and entire day of bumming on the couch Tuesday, I feel well enough to do it all over again…NEXT YEAR! Lol

What’s your favorite shot or mixed drink?

  1. I don’t think I’ve had any of those shots! I need to up my shots game…my favourite shots are a swedish berry or a porn star – so basically anything obnoxiously fruity.

  2. I actually pretty strictly drink vodka water or tonic. Anything else tends to give me a stomach ache!

  3. Yes, I’ve heard of Scooby snacks. Have you ever heard of dunkaroos?

    CRISPY BACON!!! You should try fried thick cut bacon…it’s a whole other universe.

  4. Hahaha weekends like that always make me feel old too. I just can’t handle them the way I used to!

    My favourite mixed drink/shot is anything with kahlua in it… that stuff is magical. 😀

  5. LOL! Did you channel your inner Laura? Dude. I wanna go next year.

    I don’t do shot because I’ll keep drinking everything else too. Best to steady draaaaank for me. Now… pass me a Manhattan.

      Haha! Actually, I think I did! I was kinda shocked by the end of the weekend to see how much I put away! Lol! And omg, you’ve got to go next year…to help me cover more of the food! They had some amazing vendors there. While I may have more of a tolerance for alcohol, I could never compete with your bottomless pit of a stomach! 😉 xoxo

  6. Shots that DON’T taste like alcohol? OH man that is dangerous….but dangerously good 😉

    Favourite shot was a wet pussy. Please tell me you guys have them there and not think I’m a creep.

  7. I’m glad to see you kicking back and totally letting loose. Just don’t go on a detox now and you’ll be fabulous. Although I’d be alright if you snuck in some extra H2O, fruit and veggies.
