Buttery Birthday Party
After May comes June, and then the end of June approaches, and that
means another edition of the annual Buttery Birthday Party. This is not
a game-centric party but plenty of gaming usually happens.
For those of you who don't know what this means, we'll be having a big
party starting early in the afternoon (1 PM or thereabouts) of the last
Saturday of June (that's June 30, 2012 this year), and ending at
midnight or so. Exact ending time is when all the residents are totally
exhausted, or we run out of food and drink, whichever comes first.
(Hint: bring food and drink.)
We'll have the usual collection of unusual people. Things that usually
happen include games, music, and general merriment. The back terrain (we
can't really in good conscience call it a yard) is available for games
of challenging croquet. We provide some food, soft drinks, and beer, but
we encourage guests to bring more of all of the above. (In general, our
guests will sneer at Budweiser, dring good microbrews happily, and give
special warm thanks to homebrewers; plan accordingly.) Don't bring hard
liquor unless you plan to take any remains home with you; our collection
is already large enough.
Bring yourselves, your friends, your families, your children, games,
musical instruments, food and drink, and anything else that will help
make you and our other guests happy (and not make anyone unhappy). The
Buttery is a non-smoking house, including the porch, so the
nicotine-addicted among you will have to wander out to the sidewalk or
yard. We have no pets, and would prefer that you leave yours at home.
Seeing-eye and other service animals are welcome, of course.
