Friendsgiving

Posted on Updated on

Team Crawl in Boston has been having Friendsgiving for several years fryturk9now.  The tradition started for us a few years ago when one friend wanted to deep fry a turkey, so once a fryer was procured, the game was on.  Throughout the years, some things have changed, some things have stayed the same, but it’s always a fun and festive time to have some holiday cheer with our friends.  Below we’ll provide a list of our favorite Friendsgiving tips and traditions that you can incorporate into your own affair.

1.) The Main Course – Since our Friendsgiving tradition started with the desire to try a deep fried turkey,  we’ve always had a special sort of bird for the main course.  Friendsgiving is a great time to try something different, since most families have particular traditions for the “real” Thanksgiving feast.  Once we moved locations from the wilds of Somerville to the tony slopes of Beacon Hill, we had to trade the fried turkey for something less flammable but just as delicious: turducken.  This trifecta of poultry delight is something to be tried at least once.  We recommend ordering a frozen one (already deboned and stuffed) from www.cajungrocers.com.  They ship it to your door, so all you have to do is defrost and stick it in the oven.  It comes out moist and delicious.

2.) Organization – This is a great time to utilize Google Docs.  We have done this previously, where each side was listed for people to sign up to bring a dish of their choosing.  However, somehow this year we decided to rely on people replying with what they’d bring on a Facebook invite, and nearly ended up with the turducken, four desserts and five different types of bread.  After a quick intervention we managed to account for all the appropriate sides, but save yourself the trouble and go the Google doc route from the get go.

3.) Fun and Games – One of our great Friendsgiving traditions started with a particular couple.  On the first Friendsgiving, they brought a long a game for everyone to play, and the tradition has lived on ever since.  It’s always a variation of  the same basic premise.  The group divides into teams, and are given a sheaf of papers with pictures of pop culture figures, politicians, sports figures, tv or movie characters, etc.  Each team has to guess as many pictures as they can within a time limit.  Throughout the year there have been various additions, penalties, etc.  This year, each team had to finish a 40 before beginning to guess.  We could also ask the game creators for hints (after taking down a shot).

As the saying goes, your friends are the family you choose, so it’s a great idea to celebrate a pre-holiday with them.  It’s a little more chill and relaxed than a full-blown family affair, and you won’t have your Great-Auntie asking when you’re getting married.

 

12barsupdate2 weeks from tomorrow until we’re back for the 12 Bars of X-Mas. Ticket includes $3 or less drink at each bar, Beverage Mitt, Winter Pom Hat, Santa Socks, Koozie, Drawstring Backpack, Candy Cane, Temporary Tattoos, Photo Booth and No Covers at Scheduled Bars. We predict that we’ll sell out of our regular tickets on late Monday or early Tuesday.

2 weeks until Thanksgiving

hats 2015Someone told me that we’re only 2 weeks from Thanksgiving. Where does the time go? Wasn’t it in the 70’s last week? Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited about some days of filled with family, friends, food and probably some beverages. It just still felt around a month away.

Although since the 12 Bars of X-Mas is under a month to go, I really shouldn’t be surprised.. Ticket includes $3 or less drink at each bar, Beverage Mitt, Winter Pom Hat, Santa Socks, Koozie, Drawstring Backpack, Candy Cane, Temporary Tattoos, Photo Booth and No Covers at Scheduled Bars.

The hats arrived today to go along with the socks. Backpacks are scheduled to be delivered this weekend.

Under 40 tickets to go

Posted on

Last night when I got home, I somehow found myself watching the tail end of the Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever moviegrumpy since it was blowing up on Twitter. And it certainly the #worstchristmasever was accurate. However I can’t help whether I’d watch it from the beginning if it came on again and had nothing to do.

December is tomorrow!

We’re under 40 tickets to go. I imagine we’ll sell it within the next couple of days. We’ll set up a wait list as well. But don’t wait too long. We only have so many giveaways.
