planning for Halway STBE is underway

The dates seem relatively set right now (Feb 6-8), just remember to wear or bring socks (those evite templates are weird sometimes).

If you have any questions, feel free to email me. It's not as big of a commitment as STBE because we don't do theme nights, so this might be a good way to see if you're ready to go to a full-blown STBE.

Good for them!

Also, I'm bringing a pile of A's cups so we can still enjoy tallboys as we walk around.

Less than a month to go!!! We still need a third theme night!

Revelers! We're less than a month away from the 14th Annual Sugar Twins Birthday Extravaganza!

Here's what we know:
  • We're staying at the Golden Nugget
  • We plan to spend Friday at the pool whilst waiting for the rest of the revelers to arrive
  • Sunday morning, we're wearing our STBE shirts to champagne brunch at the Paradise Buffet
  • Sunday night is Mumu Night
  • We need to pick a third theme night, like, yesterday
Questions in need of answers:
  • What night will we be doing 80s Wrestling Fans?
  • What is our third theme night?
  • Where is Biiiiiiiinh going to sleep?
  • Where is my giant?

hotel shoppin'

Vegas is making things difficult - a bunch of us are flying in on Thursday night to save some money, but all the cheap hotel rooms (<$30 per night) are charging some ridiculous $20 nightly resort fee!

My suggestion - we hold off on booking until the magical two months before arrival. That's when things get cheaper.

I managed to hold off for a day on booking my return flight and it went down $40. Patience will probably pay off in terms of booking rooms, too. Unless you're of the "why pay less when you can pay more?" mindset.

We still need to get our theme nights nailed down, and as soon as that's done, I'll update the blog and the website with information.

Bay Area STBE Committee has booked flights

Have you figured out how you're getting to Vegas for STBE 2014?

We'll all be arriving between 9:30 and 10pm on Thursday night to avoid the expensive Friday flights, and we'll be skipping town at about 3:30 on Monday afternoon.

STBE RSVPs have reached 13, still no word on the giant - BRING ME MY GIANT!!!

Theme night submissions

Sensing another all drag weekend (that's just my guess), Gabe suggests "things that wear pants."

Gabe's in luck, as the one confirmed night is 80s Wrestling Fans.

Keep the suggestions coming by evite comment,  blog comment, or email to

OK, so maybe the dates aren't set

The boys have their hiking trip. Stay tuned for updates. Nothing is final until the evite goes out.

I went ahead and posted dates on

Someone had to make an executive decision.

STBE 2014 is September 26-29, 2014 (Friday-Monday).

Now it's time to argue about theme nights.

STBE 2014 dates (we're trying!)

Due to some scheduling conflicts for some people and an unusually long hiring process for a job I'm in the running for, we're having a hard time nailing down dates. It's either going to be really early or really late this year. I'm personally leaning toward late so people can have more time to plan.

Please feel free to chime in if you see this post.

it's happening!!!

The Bay Area STBE committee is all booked up (well, mostly...I still need to figure out how I'm getting home).

We're staying at Eldorado and taking the train to Reno on Friday morning.

The evite has been sent - if you're not on it and want to be on it, email me.

If you didn't immediately read that like Homer Simpson, I weep for you.

Anyhoo, it took us long enough, but we finalized the dates for Halfway STBE - we'll be going Feb. 7-9. Get on it, people.
