Better late than...

Yeah, I know it's a week and a half since Halloween and I am just now getting around to posting some photos of our party at Porky's. We had a blast. The music was good, we had contests and raffles and good food and lots of nice folks dropped by to share the evening's entertainments. Thanks to one and all for attending.

A couple of our Staff, Tania and Jen, getting ready to party.


Brad, ever resourceful and multi-talented carves a pumpkin that was donated by the Marianas Dive Club. Its brother pumpkins were carved 40 feet underwater the preceeding Sunday in Saipan's first Annual Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest. Thanks Brad !! Thanks Marianas Dive !!

It came out looking spooky, or at very least, Porky.

We put out some food prepared by Simeon and The Other Jimmy. Free chasers were distributed to our guests all evening by our eerily dressed wait staff. Everyone seemed to enjoy the 'eyeballs' and 'worms on-a-bun' as well as more usual fare.

The Fire Shot Band led off the evening's musical entertainment. These lads, accompanied by their parents, play at Porky's on Friday and Saturday evenings and on special party occasions (if they can prove to their Mom that their homework is done). They are very talented young men and they take their education seriously (musical and scholastic). Thank You Fire Shot!!

Sam Joyner, who plays Wednesdays, Early Fridays and Saturdays at Porkys Took up the musical gauntlet and contributed to the fun with dancable Island Music and lots of Rock-a-blues oldies too. Thank You Sam !!

Anne Marie 'nursed' our guests all evening long by delivering their favorite perscription to their table.

OKAY, I'll come back to this post and add some more. There are two more bands and a lot of guest pictures I want to share but I am out of time for now. If you were there, thanks for coming. If not, you missed a fun party.

Later Gator.

I spent Halloween night on the metro listening to college kids slurring and falling over each other drunk. I'm sorry I missed the party.

It was a lot of fun, Boni. But doesn't compare to a ride on an urban subway for sheer terror, entertainment and scary graffiti.

Wish you could have been with us but your mission there was important. Welcome back.

The missus turns out to have a talent for pmpkn carving (the vegetable variety) We both think Brad did a great job on yours. We had spam and I carried around lollipops for the street urchins. Not a big holiday here, but we had fun. Sorry to miss the fun over your way.

BTW What is the specific type of humor in Rons letter to the variety today, I'm scratching my head.. It's along the lines of a using a ridiculous suggestion to answer an equally ridiculous situation?? Enquiring minds.

Sounds to me like he has fallen off the sled, Mark. Calling for public riot and civil disobedience, not to mention calling for massive public health violations is not just silly, it may actually be criminal. Don't know, but the AGO may be wanting to talk to wild man Ron on this one.

Glad you got to celebrate Halloween, even if the urchins didn't know why they were being graced with a lollipop, I bet they liked it anyway.

We also had an underwater pumpkin carving contest here. See where he has a neat video of the event and a couple of stills as well. Erdene might want to try cutting one while 40 feet under water too. It was fun!

I'm still waiting for the band and guest pictures.

Sorry Tamara, I'll get around to it.

What I need is one of those jobs where I sit in front of a computer all day pretending to work for someone while I really blog and chat. I could catch up in no time.

Maybe tomorrow.
