Strangercrombie Cupcakes and Cowgirls, Oh My!
posted by December 14 at 10:01 AMon
Last January, we threw a surreal and hilarious birthday party for a vivacious young lady, Alithea, who was the lucky recipient of Strangercrombie’s Cupcakes and Cowgirls party package. She’s going to tell you about it below. Then you should bid!—you only have until Friday at 5 pm to vie for this and dozens of other wildly fabulous gifts.
The Strangercrombie Cowgirls and Cupcakes auction is, as far as I can tell, the unity of the four most holy elements on earth: Booze, Cupcakes, The Stranger, and Scantily Clad Women Serving Booze.
Last year, I wasn’t exactly subtle when it came to my desire for me and my closest friends to get trashed with the staff of The Stranger, nor was I subtle about the fact that I could probably eat all four dozen of those sweet, sexy cupcakes myself. And that is just what I got for my 21st birthday: Copious amounts of rainbow-colored baked goods, and the opportunity to drunkenly yell at Dan Savage about anal sex. Hooray!
The fine young ladies at Cowgirls, Inc. greeted us warmly when we arrived; they were already on the bar, dancing and swinging from ropes in a way that I am sure you have never seen in gym class. The staff of The Stranger are a hilarious and friendly bunch who are more than willing to demonstrate their bull-riding skills, or in Sean Nelson’s case, challenge you to a cage fight over a chocolate cupcake. I, as the birthday girl, drank anything and everything that was “fruity and full of booze” —a phrase that also aptly sums up my state by the end of the night, made apparent when I was attempting to talk to a member of the bar staff but realized that absolutely none of the words coming out of this pretty lady’s mouth made sense.
Not only was this the best night of 2006, it was also the best birthday party I have ever had. It even beats out the Little Mermaid-themed birthday I had when I was 7, which did not involve yelling at Dan Savage about anal sex.
