If it’s fried, I’ll eat it

Wednesday night we had a ManiAAC appearance at Dave and Buster’s. It was held in the private party room and it was for any and all MAVS fans that wanted to come and watch the Mavericks trounce the Houston Rockets. The final score was 234 to 65.

So I get there and I had no idea what to expect. For some reason I thought it was a private corporate party and that it would be room filled with people who knew each other from the same office and it would be fun and crazy in that “I can only be a little crazy because my boss is right over there” kind of way. Well, it wasn’t.

The word for the free party with free food got out late and there were only about 20 people who showed up for the game. Being an optimist I looked for the good in this situation and determined immediately that less people meant more free food.

The buffet came stocked with delicious fried chicken strips, queso, mini cheeseburgers, and mini pizzas. I had eaten very little throughout the day so that I could binge on the free fare, and boy did I ever! I ate about 3 plates full of food and then they let us order dessert off the main menu and I had a chocolate shake and fondue. Strawberries, brownies, marshmallows, bananas, and graham crackers all surrounding a bowl of hot chocolate dipping sauce. There was so much I could only eat half of it. Dang my stomach!!!

Part of the reason for the extreme hunger was the lack of food throughout the day, but part of it came from the fact that we were dancing, and singing, and moving to the music and just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted – shake that monkey maker white boy! – they weren’t talking to me of course cause I ain’t white. But we were all dancing quite a bit and getting really into the game despite the fact that there weren’t very many fans there.

Next time there is a Dave and Buster’s watch party I will let you know, the next one is supposed to be in San Antonio. Do I have any San Antonio readers?
