Last night we hosted the first annual Loerke Movie Watching Party. Featured film: The Goonies (of course). We borrowed a projector and screen from a friend which allowed the film to be visible from almost anywhere in our living room. A huge plus when you're trying to cram 15 people into a tiny living space like ours. In sticking with Goonie tradition we ate our weight in Domino's Pizza and Baby Ruth's. We also stocked up on everyone's favorite movie candy: Mike n' Ikes, Butterfingers, Sour Patch Kids, Hot Tamales, Peanut M&M's, Raisinettes, and Skittles. Our 10 min intermission gave people the opportunity to stretch, use the restroom, or catch up with friends who had arrived late. To close out the event we gave away a series of prizes: The Goonies DVD for Best Dressed Goonie, and several other door prizes which included Fratelli Bullet Hole Auto Decals, Data's Pinches of Prowess Teeth, Brandon's Arm Exerciser, and Chunk's New York Triple Fudge Chunk Ice Cream. All of our guests left with a copy of the movie soundtrack and as many Baby Ruth's they could fit into Mikey's marble bag. Overall, the party was a huge success, and we couldn't be more grateful for having such awesome friends who made the evening a memorable one. We're already looking forward to next year!
