Powder Keg Festival
SNOW! BEER! FESTIVUS! RON HAWKINS! FRIENDS!
Hell yes! Tis the Powder Keg Festival in Buffalo, NY last week and I was there…all the live long day on Saturday and lived to tell about it. It only took about a week later for me to recover and blog…ha.
The plan was to get to Pearl Street in the morning for ALL YOU CAN EAT PANCAKE BREAKFAST. However by the time my friends and I got there (I blame Rita Moreno and the Mayor…)
No breakfast for us. Pancakes, gone.
Of course the next logical step was to have Powder Keg Beer for Breakfast. And another and another and another.
Until we were sloshy and hungry and ordered grub from the bar. I ordered the most delicious potato pancake grub ever. Tummy so happy! Beer still flowing.
Hey world, look how cute I am with! Is it time for Ron Hawkins yet? No? Only 12:30? Hmmm.
I KNOW! Let’s stand on the balcony and drink beer and watch the people below lined up to Snow Tube down the skyway!
Or is that…the FRIED DOUGH LINE?
Doesn’t matter. We’ve got beer!
Eventually we left the balcony and wandered around the slushy terrain. Light wet snow falling ALL DAY LONG led to wet, wet, wet…
But smart me, I wore my RAINBOOTS! And stayed dry.
Oh look, teeny snowmen playing hockey!
Later on, in the beer tent of course…we met up with this couple from South Buffalo. SURPRISE!
And still more beer was consumed. Hi Liz!
FINALLY at the end of the day (beginning of the night, around 6:30?) We made it to the ice maze, right before Ron hit the stage.
Good times. Good friends.
