Okay sorry it took so long, we're having heavy rain here. *sigh*

This is my recap of the bartender bash. *grin* I hope you enjoy it.


The Bar Bash:
 
Last year, I will admit this was my least favorite one of the events. In fact I told Adam if we had to miss something this would be the one I could do without...wow what a difference a year makes. This event was one of the best I've ever been to!
 
It started the same as all the rest. We arrived after Adam and I changed into our "bar clothes". Which basically meant, jeans and a relaxed shirt. When we got there, the event was already getting under way. Ewa Da Cruz (Vienna) and Beth Ehlers (Harley) were behind the bar. Twinnie and her sister were already there by the bar. *grin* That meant we were in the perfect spot, between the bar where all the actors were going to work and the dance floor. The music was pulsing through the speakers and we past John on our way in. He was talking to a couple of people. Adam and I talked with Twinnie while I took pictures of the bartenders and searched place for other actors.
 
Bobbie Eakes (Crystal, All My Children) worked the "vodka" booth. I didn't really see her doing much, but then again I wasn't really paying that much attention. While all this was going on, I was thinking to myself, "Okay, this is slightly boring." But at the same time I was enjoying being with my friends, so I shrugged and gave the event a chance. A changing of the "bartenders" took place and Crystal Hunt and John took over the duties behind the bar. We were so close to John it was unreal. I got quite a few pictures of him working behind the bar. One thing I noticed was the people liked seeing the actors do shots. *laughing* I know I saw John do at least three or four. Crystal did one, but she stopped after that. In fact she started giving her shots away. All I can say is she is one smart woman. Twinnie pointed out to me while Crystal was behind the bar that she had a massive ring on her finger. Twinnie wasn't joking. The ring is gorgeous. By this time we saw Caitlin come in with a shot bucket. I think she was working with Van, twinnie might have to correct me if I'm wrong. The shots were given to you in like a test tube and they looked blue. I have no idea what they were and for five dollars a shot I wasn't about to find out. *laughing* Have I ever mentioned I'm cheap?
 
The other actors started moving around the bar. Billy came close to us and ordered a bottle of water. To which twinnie said, "I would have pegged you for a drinker." He responded with the water bottle in his hand, "No I would never drink. I know how its done." *laughing* This is when those super cute and funny pictures were taken with Twinnie and Tina and Billy. Billy leaned over kissing Tina on the cheek (the picture is on Sharon's lj) then he walked over to Twinnie, lifted his shirt and covered her head with it. Twinnie was VERY close to that man's hot body. Lucky bitch. *laughing* As if that wasn't envy-inducing enough, he humped her leg a little. *laughing* Billy is a freaking nut. After that, he walked out onto the dance floor and danced his sexy ass off. *sigh* It was a great sight to see.
 
John was eventually relieved from bar work by Trent and ....uh....I can't remember. Anyway, he was talking to some people in front of me and accidentally stepped back onto my toe. *sigh* He quickly turned around, grabbed my arm gently and apologized. "I know I just totally stepped on you and I'm so sorry." I told him it wasn't that big of a deal. He's too sweet to be mad at. *laughing* Caitlin was dancing on the dance floor at this point. Adam and I were dancing next to the bar, singing the songs to each other. Caitlin actually came up to us and started dancing with us. *grin* She once again told me that she loved the video and she told Jeff that "the maker of the Shayne/Ashlee video was here." She said that he was excited and wanted to meet me to thank me for making it. *blushes* It really made me feel good to know that she enjoyed it. She acknowledged the fact that they both realize that video must have taken a lot of time and energy. Once again, I was floored by how kind she was. *grin* Twinnie took a picture of all of us dancing. Thank goodness there wasn't any blushing in that photo, because I know I was blushing from all the love she was giving me. Oh and before I forget, I was groped. *laughing* Some man walked by me and grabbed my ass repeatedly as he walked by. *laughing* I was so shocked I didn't know how to react, but now I can laugh and feel a little flattered. The DJ played "Barbie Girl" by Aqua, which is one of my favorite quirky songs. I told Adam and Sharon that it was based on Beth. *is mean and doesn't care* *laughing*
 
Okay now I'm sure most of you have seen the half naked boys pictures...well this is when the bar bash got interesting. *laughing* The DJ announced that if you tipped well the guys (Billy Magnussen [Casey], Nicholas Galbraith [Zac] and Alex Cole [Hunter]) would bar tend shirtless. The thought I had was, yeah right. I laughed it off until I turned around to face the bar. Slowly, with each dollar dropped into the "tip" bucket, buttons were undone and gorgeous men's chests were revealed. Let me tell you, it was a nice show. The pictures we took couldn't capture well enough how hot those guys are. Times like that, you thank God for gyms (that I don't use) and digital cameras. *laughing* Nick was probably the best at getting tips. He kept people coming back for more (because of his killer chest and abs) by saying, "It's for the children." I don't know how much he ended up making but I know it must have been a pretty penny.
 
Jake was the first one to sing at karaoke. He sang: Bringing Down the House. And he most definitely did. *grin*
 
Caitlin sang next and if I didn't already love her I would now. The girl sang Journey. She sang Journey! Dude that is like the best band from the 80s! The song was: Don't Stop Believing. Billy ended up singing with her. I couldn't see much, because I'm short. *laughing* But she sounded really good. I was disappointed that she didn't sing last year, so this made up for it.
 
Nick sang after Caitlin...and I can't remember the song. I think I was still picturing him shirtless. *laughing* I do know that he had a nice voice.
 
Billy sang after him. He played guitar and sang two songs. The problem was I didn't recognize either of them. Not that it mattered. Hot guy with a guitar = love no matter what song it is. *laughing*
 
Caitlin and John tended bar together. This was about the time that Adam and I left. We were feeling the long day and needed some sleep...by that time it was already 2 in the morning. Twinnie and Tina were still at the bar though so maybe she can give more scoop about what happened after Adam and I left. *grin*

It makes me oddly happy that Sharon got humped by Billy. *laughing* Not sure why, it just does.

It's so great that Caitlin and Jeff both like your video so much and I'm glad they recognized how much work you put in to it because I know it wasn't easy.

I've seen two different sets of shirtless boy pics, but I need to see more! *grin* Post them soon, pretty please?

I can totally picture Jake singing that! He's such a hoot. I read on Kat's review that when he was auctioning his painting he pointed out the crab on it and said that whoever bought it could tell people that Jake Silbermann gave them crabs. *giggles*

Twinnie was glad too, let me tell you. *laughing* Lucky, lucky, lucky girl. Billy isn't right in the head, God love him. *laughing*
Caitlin really went out of her way to let me know they both enjoyed the video and that just endeared her more to me. She didn't have to, but she wanted me to know. She's really amazing. If I go next year and she's there, I definitely wouldn't mind sitting with her again.
*laughing* I'm sure you will see more and more shirtless men pictures. That turned a lot of cameras on...and a lot of women and gay men. *laughing*
Jake did say that at the dinner. I knew there was more I wanted to say, but I feel like my recaps are just becoming too long now. *laughing* I'm rambling. **hugs**

It sounds like you had a blast Jai, and I would definately not mind if John stepped on my foot *grin*. And I have to say that I love the fact that both Jeff and Caitlin loved your video about Shaylee (I'm still mad at the writers about that). Thanks for all your recapping Jai!!!!! srobinso21

We really did have so much fun. *grin* I wish that all of you could have gone too. It would have been great to finally meet you all and share in the fun. *hugs* I wasn't bothered by John stepping on my toe at all. *laughing* He's just so gorgeous up close. *grin* Caitlin really went out of her way to tell me that they both enjoyed it. She didn't have to and that just made her that much sweeter in my eyes. She's an awesome person. Oh and I agree, I hate that we were so close to Shaylee, but the writers changed their minds. *grumble*

I'm loving all your recaps. It's almost like being there myself. Caitlin seems like such a sweet person. Billy does seem a bit crazy but that's what makes him so fun. Tina & Sharon will be smiling for weeks I'm sure. You can ramble all you want girlie, I'll listen as long as you talk! **hugs** Tray

I'm glad someone is enjoying them. *laughing* I really wish you had been there Tray. We would have had a blast and I know you would have loved it. *grin* Billy is nuts in the best possible way. He is the life of the party that's for damn sure. *laughing* **hugs**

The ring Crystal got was incredible. If she's smart, and I think she is, she will hang on to him. *grin* Thank you for correcting my mistakes. It's really hard to remember all that happened. *grin* This weekend was packed with stuff to share. I've never had a hurricane, are they good? I'm cheap and broke. *laughing* Even if I had the money I don't think I'd spend it on drinks. *laughing* Mama taught me to be conservative with cash. *grin*

You remembered a lot. There were some things I was like, oh yeah I forgot about that, lol A hurricane is ok. Not as good as a Washington Apple. Yummy! Next time when we don't have to drive, I'll get you drunk. We'll both get drunk, lol

YAY for helping Trent out. I think all those actors were completely clueless behind the bar. *laughing* Obviously none of them were bartenders before they were soap actors. Not that I would be any better. The picture of all of us (Caitlin, Adam and I) was great. Thank you for sending it to me. *grin* I didn't want to bitch slap him. *laughing* I really didn't know what to say or do. It's not everyday my ass gets grabbed. *shakes head smiling*

Jake was the first one to sing at karaoke***************yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy jake, way to get things going************************. He sang: Bringing Down the House. And he most definitely did. *grin* **********uh huh****************

I didn't see many people putting money into Billy's pucket, but I was distracted by all the sexy so maybe he was making some cash. All I know it that Nick is a master at getting tips.. "For the children". *laughing* I'm so happy Jake started the karaoke part of the night. I was starting to think it wasn't going to happen this year. *grin*
 
posted by [identity profile] angelzqq.livejournal.com at 12:41am on 08/05/2009
I was distracted by the sexy too. And Nick was definitely good at getting the tips. And Jake was awesome with the karaoke. He rocked!

I'm hoping the amount of sexy from this year gets doubled for next year. *laughing* Oh yeah, I'm planning that far in advance. *grin*

Caitlin sang next and if I didn't already love her I would now. The girl sang Journey. She sang Journey! Dude that is like the best band from the 80s! The song was: Don't Stop Believing. Billy ended up singing with her.**********for like a minute, lol************** I couldn't see much, because I'm short. *laughing* But she sounded really good. **********she was screaming, lol********************I was disappointed that she didn't sing last year, so this made up for it.

Nick sang after Caitlin...and I can't remember the song. I think I was still picturing him shirtless. *laughing* I do know that he had a nice voice.***********i knew the dang song at the time but he really has a great voice, i was pleasantly surprised***************

Billy sang after him. He played guitar and sang two songs. The problem was I didn't recognize either of them. Not that it mattered. Hot guy with a guitar = love no matter what song it is. *laughing****************i didn't recognize them either, lol*********************

Caitlin and John tended bar together. This was about the time that Adam and I left. We were feeling the long day and needed some sleep...by that time it was already 2 in the morning. Twinnie and Tina were still at the bar though so maybe she can give more scoop about what happened after Adam and I left. *grin* ****************we left probably 10 minutes after them but when it was time to leave, we had to try to make our way through the crowd, long story but my sister has to use a wheelchair a lot of the time, so like i said, we had to make our way through the crowd and people, especially drunk people, lol, don't move out of your way, so another lady asked billy if he would make a path so that we could get through, well he decided he was gonna push her, tina said that she can't say how many people's lets he ran into but that there were going to be quite a few who didn't know where they got their bruises from *laughin*, he pushed her out on the patio part and kind of let her go and she ran into some tables *laughin*, lord help us, lol, GOOD TIMES******************************

Billy did sing with her for a while but the...other person wouldn't give up the stage to him. *sigh* And you know which person I'm talking about. When Caitlin actually sang, she was really great. I enjoyed it anyway. *laughing* Of course it's Journey...you can't go wrong with Journey. *laughing* I knew Nick's song too. I just can't for the life of me remember it now. *sighs* It's so frustrating. *laughing*
 
posted by [identity profile] angelzqq.livejournal.com at 12:42am on 08/05/2009
Tina and I can't remember it now. We all know the song but can't remember it. Maybe Adam remembers it?
 
posted by [identity profile] jailynn24.livejournal.com at 04:40pm on 08/05/2009
I remembered it! Last night while I was laying in bed I remembered what Nick sang. It was Maniac from the 80s movie Flashdance. He dedicated it to Billy and Billy danced the moves on the dance floor. *laughing* I can't believe I forgot that, but yeah, it came to me last night. *grin* *is proud of myself*
