Weekend recap: day drinking rocks!

I can admit that I'm not great with alcohol. So day drinking, like I did Saturday, is not a good idea for me.

I love that sweet liquor nectar of the gods, but I am not the best when I consume it in mass quantities. After I've had a few drinks, I end up hugging everyone (more than when I'm sober), giving kisses on the cheek and telling anyone and everyone that I love them.

Also, everyone gets a new nickname, "honey." For example, "honey you look hot in that top" or "honey could you get me another beer? Mama J needs her juice."

It's embarrassing. Oh, I also tend to talk/laugh loudly and say very inappropriate things. Oops.

But, as I mentioned, Saturday I day drank with some of my good friends at a party, appropriately titled, "In the Garden of Good and Evil."

And what was one of the evils afflicted on me? Raspberry vodka punch, that was more vodka than raspberry but gave you a solid punch in the face.

After I had glass number four of said punch, there was lots of laughing and giggling from me at sexual innuendo comments. If I had a nickel for every time I said "that's what she said," I could pay off my student loan. How old am I again?

Anyhow, because family and co-workers read this blog, I cannot divulge everything that went on but let's just say this. I made a new friend that's pink and shakes.

And the result of my weekend day drinking adventure, plus dinner at Hot Chocolate on Friday night, I desperately needed to go work out. It burns so good/bad. Nothing says "hot" like sweating vodka.

Finally in closing, I had to post this picture of a burger I enjoyed last week on my day off. Sarah and I met up at Kuma's Corner, which has been voted "Chicago's best burger" several times. Good lord I could have used one of these burgers yesterday. Cheddar, bacon and fried egg, oh boy!


So those were my weekend adventures, how was everyone else's weekend?

And feel free to share if you are also do not handle liquor well. I'm sure I can't be the ONLY one :)

bianca said...

oh how i love day drinking. it's been too long...perhaps my first event after taking the bar will be a day party. i'll call it "you just took the bar - now go to the bar". i like it.

that burger looks insanely delicious! it's making my stomach growl.

and I get exactly the same way when I've had a bit too much to drink as well. I end up loving EVERYONE.

Day drinking messes me up! I am just like you when it comes to drinking it sounds, because I'm super friendly and make jokes A LOT.

Blaez said...

its pink and it vibrates... NICE

i didn't use to be able to handle alchohol --1 drink and i was 3 sheets... ok maybe not one, but 3...

then i got to where it didn't matter how much i drank it didn't phase me.

now, i just don't drink much and when i do i gotta drink hard and fast in order to feel anything from it.

my most memorable drunken embarassment was walking around to every super tall guy at the party asking "are you my husband?"... he was passed out in a corner curled up in a ball... man, we didn't drink so well together! and he'd only had 5 beers, i had a whole fifth of jack to myself...

that burger looks NAUGHTY. I want!

Maki said...

I sooo would love to be there and being hugged and kissed by you!!!!

You could be the cutest gal on the block when consumed alcohol - I would love for you to make some time for me when I visit Chicago!!! xoxo

Mandy said...

I end up doing similar things when I've been drinking and we would have so much fun!

That burger, it sort of turns my stomach. Wow thats a lot of meat.

Erin said...

I'm weird when it comes to how I handle alcohol. Sometimes I can drink you under the table, and other times I'm out after a couple of drinks. I was wasted on a bottle of wine at our anniversary dinner. WASTED.

Can't wait to have a fruity drink with you this weekend!

Auburn Kat said...

Thanks for stopping by=)

I'm not a huge fan of day drinking as I'm usually ready for bed by 9! =)

Kuma's makes the most AMAZING burgers. I just made the Kuma burgers and also made the Melvin (with mozzarella, fresh basil, tomato, onion and prosciutto) for Memorial day weekend. I actually found a place that sells the pretzel rolls that they use. Needless to say they were a HUGE hit.
I also suck when it comes to drinking. On the brightside I'm so cheap at a bar.
Wow...that doesn't sound right.

EP said...

That burger looks absolutely INCREDIBLE!

Like you, I cannot hold liquor well. I blame it on the fact that I didn't drink until I was 21. I haven't been able to catch up. But I'm a fun drunk, which is a plus. Even if I am a cheap, cheap date...

Day drinking can be so dangerous but, oh, my, it can be so fun!

I was at a family wedding where I participated in loads of day drinking. Glad to be back in Chicago, though!

Jenn said...

day drinking is the best thing ever. i too, get giggly and huggy. only i tend to drink at inappropriate times - like sunday night for instance. today has been more than rough and i'll probably go to bed in a bit here :)

Pam said...

That burger looks soooo good. I really need to try Kuma's Corner sometime soon.

I love day drinking. Well, I used to. There's something so wrong, yet so right about drinking in the daylight. But right now I'm still in my "I never want to drink again" phase after my hangover yesterday. It will pass soon enough and then I'll be good as new and craving Pink Panty Droppers again (eek!)

Today is my best friend's 21st bday. We started last night. I'm at work and still drunk. I don't handle liquor well and I need that burger. Now. Please. Thanks.

I really hope it's not a growth spurt for me! I'm already 6'1!! My weekend... great! And the burger looks yummy.

I'm pretty sure I saw pictures of said party floating around the internets yesterday. Perfect day for a garden party, no?! I took advantage of the great weather by going for a long run on Saturday, dinner out with friends on Saturday night, a long bike ride on Sunday morning and an afternoon spent with Sweets' family Sunday afternoon (including a long walk at the dog park)!

Jessica said...

That burger looks amazing - next time I'm in Chicago I have to make it to Kumas!

I love day drinking though - it's perfect for summertime!

rondamarie said...

My best friend always tell me that she loves me when she is drunk. I tease her about it all the time. Now, when she's drunk and she tells me that she loves me and I say "uh, huh" she gets mad and has to try to convince me that she's not drunk and she does in fact love me. I know she loves me, but still, she's usually drunk when she says it :)

Mindy said...

My work during the week is okay with us drinking hard liquior during the day! I still think this is not a good idea, but I did go along with people and had a few margaritas at lunch one day and couldn't concentrate, everything was mumbled coming forth my lips and i was falling asleep. Hopefully you never have to work for a company that encourages work day drinking.

Maxie said...

I'm a good drinker, but not a great day drinker. I get really tired if I don't keep up the flow of the booze.

Miss Grace said...

The key to day drinking is a mid-afternoon pool-side nap.

alexa - cleveland's a plum said...

day drinking is one of my specialties. no joke.

also ever since jamie (i think it was her) blogged about hot chocolate it's somewhere i'm dying to check out next time i'm in chicago.

Andhari said...

The burger looks good, especially after all the drinks lol. I've never tried raspberry vodka, I clearly miss out.

Angela said...

Man, I miss you. Here's to being punched in the face by alcohol!

Lisa Chelle said...

There is nothing quite as fun as getting trashed on crack juice (vodka + fruit Juicy or strawberry soda) when the sun is still shining... glad you had a great time.
