St. Pat’s Party at the Club

Kurt napGrab your little leprechaun and head on over to the Glutton Club on Saturday, St. Patrick’s Day for a bit of green celebratin’.

Festivities get underway around 2 or 3 pm or after the parade if you’re goin’.  Corned beef and cabbage and potatoes will be the fare.  You’re asked to bring a snack or side dish to share and $5 per person. 

They’re goin’ to have a few drinks from the Progressive Dinners leftover funds, but if you’ve got a little Irish in ya (and who doesn’t on St. Patty’s Day) or if yer’ a Glutton you might want to pack a cooler cause them leftovers won’t go far.

Rumor has it that some chick named Erin will go brahless too!

 

Progressive Dinner This Saturday, March 3

Progressive dinnerThe Gluttons will hold a Progressive Dinner this Saturday, March 3, 2012.  A progressive dinner is a dinner party in which each successive course is prepared and eaten at the residence of a different host.

We’re going to start out at Joe and Karen’s house (117 Lamplighter Way, 63368) in O’Fallon MO at 3 pm and then work our way back closer to town as the evening progresses.  There will be 4 stops along the way.  I’m sure a group will meet at the club around 2 pm and carpool out west.

There will be a $5 pp charge and you’re asked to BYOB.

Those who served were, Dave and Deb, along with Dan Sucich, Kurt Mirth, Gerard Pfeffer, Larry Green, Ray Staples, Jon & Pat Heacock, Joe Rieker, Andy Green, Luis Martinez, Vince Heacock and Buck Rowberry.

Creature feature gets glowing review

Rilla1
A gorilla about 30 foot high towered over the patio on Friday night at the Glutton Park Balloon Glow.  The beast known as Kurt Kong was secured and didn’t break loose of his restraints.  Lighted balloons were set adrift throughout the evening until one went into the big cedar next to the house.  Had the tree caught fire we would have been able to build an even bigger deck and patio with the insurance proceeds.  A well behaved crowd enjoyed the music, trivia and goose head beer (or something like that) and duck fries along with other delicacies that party goers brought.  Excellent job by Pat B, Kurt M and their Mary little elves.
