Now, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "gee, I'd love to go to a retro zombie tiki event, since it would give me a wonderful opportunity to show off my vintage threads, but I have no clue how to get that living dead look that all the cool kids go for nowadays." I feel you. Luckily for the zombie makeup challenged, Nora will have a booth set up at the event and will be providing zombie makeovers for a small fee. Tell her Bubs sent you. Hope to see you there!
MizBubs and I will be there soaking it all in.
So there you have it folks--two opportunities to drink up in swell surroundings.
That's it for now. I've got a couple of projects demanding some attention, so I won't be around for a few days. Until next week, please stand by.
