OK…since we’ve brought you a whole pile of guest announcements, how about we mix it up and throw in an event announcement or two…..?
Sure…we have your autograph sessions and photo ops, but who doesn’t, amirite? Nope…we’re bringing you something new, because we’re all about the new here at Earp Division Expo.
Event #1: Paint and Sip with Kat and Dom:
Feeling creative? Got nothing else to do Saturday afternoon? How about a Paint and Sip with Kat and Dom? Now…I haven’t got it in me…painting a wall without getting paint on the ceiling is still a foreign concept to me…but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some secret folk among us who’d make Picasso himself weep.
Not a secret Picasso? That’s ok, too. It doesn’t mean you can’t have fun giving it the old college try. And then to have something that you created…with your own two hands…to take with you…? Oh, and did we mention that it’s with Kat and Dom, as well??
C’mon….this is a no-brainer
Event #2: Cocktail hour with the cast:
Not had enough to “Sip” yet? Why not join us for a cocktail hour with some of the Wynonna Earp cast and do a little more sipping? Saturday night—don’t worry, will give you a little time to gather yourself after the Paint and Sip—come hang out for the cocktail hour.
Even though the first “Cocktail Party” was said to be the invention of a guy in London (Alec Waugh – the older, less known brother of Evelyn Waugh), there was no record of any such event until 1924, AND, he only write about an event that somebody else had! Nope. Over here, there was an article in the St. Paul Pioneer Press about a woman living in St. Louis who held a one hour party for 50 of her friends on s Sunday afternoon. The paper – and I have no idea why a St. Paul newspaper was writing about events in St. Louis – said that it was “an instant hit” and just like that, cocktail hours started springing up like spring wildflowers. Then tragedy struck in 1920. Prohibition. Cocktail hours got just a little bit less fun, but, with the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, cocktail parties came roaring back in all their glory. Food was served as a way to soak up the new alcohol…which, from all accounts was something closer in strength to lighter fluid.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled announcement
In any event, we’re holding one. Be there…Saturday night for a bit of laughter, conversation, drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
Event #3: Sunday Brunch with the Cast
OK…one of my favorite words in the English language is portmanteau. But I’ve been told I’m kind of a weirdo. Anyway, its origin is French, but I’m not going to go any further than that. All I am going to say is that their now known as “Frankenwords” or “Shipping Words”
Brunch is one such word…one of my favorite of the portmanteau I am familiar with, I have to admit. I come from a long line of people who loved to cram as many meals into one day as humanly possible. Hell, my father’s nickname was “Brunch”. Personal relationship with the word or the event aside, we’re having one. I don’t think I need to say anything more than that, as it’s pretty self-explanatory and you’ve already had one lesson today.
So there you have it….our first three events laid out for you.
First three? Wait! Does that mean there’s more?
Who’s to say?
