Pride Brunch

For those of you that know me, Pride is one of my favourite events of the year. I think that I get equally excited about Pride as I do for Christmas. Part of it might have to do with the fact that Pride in Winnipeg generally coincides with my birthday.

Needless to say, I don’t believe in doing anything small for Pride. The entire weekend hurt a little, but let me tell you the story myself.

What a wonderful party!

On June 1, I had the pleasure of celebrating my 27th Birthday with some amazing people I have the honour of calling my friends.  I am glad I have such wonderful people in my life that I am able to celebrate mile stones with.

International Bingo.jpgClub 200 were wonderful hosts to my party.  Thank you so much for the wonderful decorations, food, balloons, and the gold leaf headbands for my guests that matched the Mediterranean theme of my party!

The party started at 7pm to accommodate plans other people had during the evening who disappointingly were unable to attend.  However, Mike B. and I were joined by Clif for International Bingo which is hosted by Anita Stallion every Saturday at Club 200.

We were then joined by many other friends including Mama Mike, Shannon, Nadine, Tracy, Reno, Chad, Scott, Bryce, Laurie, and Sheldon.  I shared my favourite cake from Costco, which by the way is FAR too large for anyone’s health, but it is delicious!

After cake and drinks, we headed over to Fame  to dance the night away.  It was great seeing more friends there!  Unfortunately, by this point the liquid birthday presents started to take effect and the night becomes a little hazy.  I do remember that someone attached balloons to me so that they could find me in the crowd, because being 6’4″ isn’t easy enough to find me.  I had a lot of fun sharing time with everyone that was there including Tracy, Jason, Luke, Brent, Mike M. and Garrett.

Thank you to everyone for taking time to celebrate with me.  It was an amazing celebration made even more special by the people that I was able to share it with.  I look forward to celebrating with you next year!  Check out the pictures below.

Special mentions go to Mike B., Shannon, and Nadine for dressing up in their finest Mediterranean outfits for the party.  Next year, I’m thinking super hero’s will be the theme.  I can’t wait to see who will make an appearance at my party!
