Yesterday was my ... bachelorette party! Actually, I should clarify that to say, "Yesterday was my pseudo-bachelorette party!" YAY!
That means that it was not the penis-driven, alcohol soaked party that most brides tend to get. In case you hadn't noticed, I become awkward around anything that is traditionally feminine or girly, including bridal/baby showers, bachelorette parties, and saying the word "panties."
So instead, David and I went to have dinner and drinks with my brothers (Chris and Brian) and their wives (Sarah and Jennifer). We headed down to my old non-stomping grounds, the Arvada Beer Company. As I mentioned to them last night, a trip to my real stomping grounds wasn't possible because the Arvada Library closes at five on Saturdays:-)
The Arvada Beer Company is a newish microbrewery in the center of Olde Town Arvada (where I'm from), and while they don't actually serve anything but beer there, they do let you order in food from a number of nearby establishments.
David and I had some pizza from Udi's Bakery to go along with our extensive beer sampler. I had the squash/goat cheese/arugula pizza, and he had a disgusting mushroom crap pie. Sometimes I think he orders stuff with mushrooms in it because he knows that I will never ask to taste it if it is covered in slimy squishy mushrooms.
My pizza was great--the arugula and the roasted squash were a great compliment to the goat cheese, which for some reason seems healthier that a thick coating of mozzarella cheese. Thoughts?
A sliver of the beers we tried:

Chris and Sarah have been married seven happy years now:
|Seven years ... with little to no physical violence.|
While I did resist all entreaties to do shots in celebration of our upcoming wedding, I did drink a bit too much beer (about three total), which means that today I'm a little headachy:-)
But it sure was nice to catch up with my brothers and my favorite SILs.

Sorry, Jen. I wanted to show a picture of you too, but the only pics I got of you seem to be of your breasts?!
Can't wait for some post-wedding drunken dancing next Saturday!
