2009 St. Patrick's Day Party - TravBuddy Style

 

Lola and James co-hosted a terrific TravBuddy St. Patrick's Day Shindig in the downtown Kansas City Power & Light District. We gathered together for an evening of laughter, Guinness, Jameson and Bailey's to celebrate the luck of the Irish. J

 

We met at:

Raglan Road Irish Pub
170 E 14th St

Eight Great Kansas City TravBuddy St. Patrick’s Day Party Pals attended:

Dalmia - Lawrence, Kansas.   www.travbuddy.com/Dalmia

James - Missouri.   www.travbuddy.com/pearcetoyou

Kelli - Missouri.

Power & Light District buzzing

Lola - Leawood, Kansas.   www.travbuddy.com/itslola

Mark - Overland Park, Kansas.  www.travbuddy.com/travelman727

Steve - Missouri.

Tony - San Diego, California.   www.travbuddy.com/smilingpanda

Traci - Missouri.   www.travbuddy.com/rtbabe38

 

From the moment I picked up Dalmia at 5:00 p.m. (Tuesday night) until I arrived home at 5:00 a.m. (Wednesday morning) 12 hours later, it was TravBuddy fun at its finest. I feel confident in saying, "A splendid time was had by all!"

 

I also documented the J whirlwind romance J of Dalmia (Dalmia) and James (pearcetoyou). Who'd a thunk that two TravBuddies introduced this night would get engaged 8 hours later at a late-night Denny's restaurant?   J wink wink lol wink wink J

 

There are other writings and/or photo galleries about this fabulous get-together. Please make sure to also check out these wonderful blogs:
