The Twelve Bars of Christmas
Every Christmas a group of friends get together and bar hop around NYC, hitting 12 bars in 8 hours.  That's a good enough reason for Elana and I to fly cross-country for the weekend!  And, we took in some other sites while we were on the "right" coast.

Dinner at The Bigelows
To start the weekend, headed over to Perry and Val's to have some dinner and shoot pool.  Here's a shot of Perry...scratching.

Scott and Jan.  I guess this would be the closest (this weekend) that I would see Jan drinking...

Rockfeller Center
We headed in early to NYC to take in some sites before Bar Golf.  And we took some photos in case we didn't remember why our fingers froze off BEFORE Bar Golf.

Times Square
No time for a Broadway play, but we did buy the token "I LOVE NY" t-shirt.  Actually, we bought FIVE of them...

Alot more security around the Stock Exchange than I remember years ago.

Bar1-Jimmy's Bait Shack
4:00pm.  Wings were 35 cents, so that ended up being dinner.  What's that hole in the middle of the table???

Wings for Dinner
Ahh, that's Melody in the middle!

Swamp Water
Drinking swamp water has become a Bar Golf ritual (And there's Elana taking her first - but definitely not last - drink of the night).  Too bad they gave them to us 5 minutes before the whistle.  Chug, chug, chug!

And we keep going and going...

Not much of a crowd, but plenty of fun for everyone!  Here's Elana, Tom, Melody and Steve.

Bar 3 - The Big Easy
Banger, being declared the first "Target" picked Scott as his "partner".  And Bill made sure we did our required drinking.  Man, those "Get out of jail free" cards didn't last long!

And the shots continue, thanks for Bill!

Bar 4 - American Spirits
Look at all those Car Bombs (and let's not forget that suspicious character at the end...) on the bar!

Laura's love for dogs
Laura's FINALLY getting over her drinking problem, by hiding under tables during Bar Golf.

Mike and Elana
Still as Bar 4.  Anything to stay out of the cold.

Bar 5 - Marty O'Briens
Our second set of targets, Sam and Tom, took the stage.  But I thought targets were supposed to AVOID getting hammered?

Bar 6 - Tavern on First
Looks like we interrupted a kids' tree decorating event...with plenty of food still left out.  Mmmm.

Bar 7 - Brady's Bar
With Bar 7, the third and final set of "targets" was ready for their turn.  Hi Debbie!

Bar 10 - Doc Watson's
As the night wore on, Sam became alot more friendly, asking anyone (and everyone) to buy him a shot.  Apparently he tripped 5 times going to the bathroom.

Bar 11 - American Trash
Not sure if the name had anything to do with the stench inside.  Mike finally got around to buying Steve his first shot as a target...four bars late!
