Everyone Went to Mick's! (Part Two - The Party!)

After a fun afternoon of treasure hunting (see yesterday's post), I returned to my motel to change and get ready for the main event of the trip, Thanksmass!

After a bit of a drive, we arrived at the Casablanca, and I was excited to see the progress of the addition that Mick is building.

The Casablanca was all ready for a night of fun.  Tables were set for a large crowd.  Shortly after I arrived, the rest of the guests began to arrive, and the party was on!

The dinner was exceptional, with everyone bringing something in a Pyrex dish.  All the food looked amazing set on the tables.  If anybody went home hungry, it was their own fault.  There were many more fun activities that evening, which I am going to let Mick tell you about on his blog, Everyone Goes to Mick's (I'm sure he'll have a great write up about it once his Tech Week is over for the upcoming musical at his theatre).

As the evening went on, gifts were exchanged.

From Mick and Patricia I received two fun things.  First, this amazing piece of Pyrex to add to my collection of promos / rare / unusual pieces.  The Pyrex Fish Dish, complete with its original box.  WOW!!!  Thank you!  I have never see this before, and I'm so excited that it is mine!  Has anyone else ever run across this piece?

They also gave me a vintage Salt Lake City wall plate.  Now, there is a bit of a story behind this.  Mick, Patricia, and I all are big fans of the current Broadway musical "The Book of Mormon."  Now that there is a road cast of the show, this plate was a promise that when the show gets close to our area, we are going to go see it together.  I can't wait!

Which brings to mind this song:

Christine, of I'm Not Old, I'm Vintage, gave me a fun creamer of a little chef with a fly on his face and a vintage toy where you have to get the little balls to stop on the cat's eyes.  Fun!  Thank you so much, Christine!  It was wonderful meeting you!

After many of the guests left, we all played a most entertaining game called Paper Telephone, which had all of us rolling in laughter.

With a 6 hour drive home facing me, I knew I needed to get back to my motel and get some rest, so I left the Casablanca at around 1:45 am and fell into bed at 2:30 am.  Glad I didn't have to check out of the motel until 11:00 am!

Some random pics from the evening (before I filled up the memory card on my camera, that is):

It was great to get to visit the Casablanca for the third time (I'm now officially a member).  It's a little more fun each time!  Thanks for inviting me, Mick!

And, now that I'm a member, I have this song on my mind:


  1. OMG I AM SO JEALOUS of EVERYTHING! The visiting, the vintage theme, the FISH dish. Love it.

  2. I have two more visits to go before I'm an official member!
