Cruise Update

Today is the last day for the $50 deposits. But don’t let that stop you from joining us on a fun filled adventure! (EDIT:  If you call our gal, she’ll hook you up with an extension!)

Many people still think cruising is for the over 45 crowd. I ensure you it’s not. It’s a great time to relax, catch up and enjoy doing something new.

It’s one of only times you will be happy to allow your phone to take a break.  The shows are cheesy, the drinks are expensive (read our post on this), but the food is good, the friends are plenty and experience can’t be beat.

Here are some photos of the last HHG cruise to Mexico.

On the Lookout for New Meeting Places!

We are always looking for new places to cover.

Our basic requirements are:

1. A Long(ish) Happy Hour

We understand that an hour means an hour, but that doesn’t help our members when the hour ends at 5pm and they don’t leave work until 5:30. Or if you know the owner or management team that would extend prices for us, that would cool too.

2. Uncharted Waters

We know about the places on the Strip and a few local bars, but where are some of your favorite places to go that have not been featured on Buzzfeed or flipped in a Bar Rescue?

3. Great Atmosphere

Let’s face it, were not everyone’s cup of tea, so the less hoity, is the best for our toity.  But if this place is something that we should definitely see, we will give it a try and stay on our best behavior.

4. Never the Same Place Twice

We try to never visit the same place twice.  Check out the Past Meetings page to see where we’ve been. (Yes, we know it hasn’t been updated, we’re working on it!) The Calendar page also has some past locations.

That’s about the gist of it. If you would like to host a meeting, drop us a line!  We’d love to have more members!

OH YEAH…here’s our shameless plug:

Join us at our next meeting!  CLICK HERE to reserve your spot at the bar!

Keep Calm and Have a Drink!

Cruising….on a Sunday Afternoon…

Yes, we know the song is Groovin on a Sunday Afternoon by The Rascals, but today we wanted to talk about cruising.  No not in our Impala down the strip, but on a boat.  A really big boat.  5 years ago, some Happy Hour Gang members took a cruise to Mexico, we called it the Alcholocaust. (yes in hind sight, the name was…well…let’s just say it wasn’t our finest moment.

This was a cruise that brought a lot of people together whom are still friends today. People bonded over tacos, Unicorn Blood, silly hats and an 80’s prom.

If you didn’t already know, Ki..Ki..Ki..Kina and Johnny T are married, and will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary next year.  So what did they want to do to mark their 1/10th of a century together?  You guessed it!  They want to go on a cruise.

Which brings us to the real reason for this entry: How do we sneak all that alcohol on board?

Now as you know, getting alcohol on board a cruise ship is one that requires cunning, stealth and being calm at the time of boarding.   Here are our top 5 tips for you.

1. Do not pack your alcohol in a carry on bag.

When you head to boarding, your first stop is a metal detector and X-Ray machine. Right behind the boarding agent you will see a bin filled with all the failed attempts to sneak alcohol on board.  Water bottles filled with vodka, 6 packs of water bottles with one bottle filled with gin.  Yup, they all didn’t work. Oh and don’t think about adding a few bottles in the middle of a carton of soda, they will rip it open and check. Plus, X-Ray, duh.

2. Buy one drink on board in a souvenir cup.

Yes we know it’s $20, but you can use the cup again and again with your own stash. Brilliant right?

3. Be consistent.

When you pack your suitcase, remember that consistence is key!  Don’t fold all your shirts and then have all your t-shirts rolled. If you roll everything, not only will you have a lot of extra room, for more stuff, but it will not look suspicious when they open up to check.

4. Small bottles work great.

You know which ones we’re talking about, they are always on sale for $1 at the cash register. A few of those can be easily stored in your toiletry bag. Smart huh?

5. Stuff your shoes.

If you use the plastic liquid flask, stuff them in your shoes, and don’t over fill! See more tips on THIS PAGE.

So a few of the members are getting ready to head to Alaska next year, and if you would might want to join us, give Kerstin Thompson a call at Norwegian Cruise Lines and ask to join The Great Theivagt Cruise. 954.514.4152.
