So the most daunting task on The IU Bucket List was checked off yesterday,
#59 Stay at Kilroy’s- Open to Close √
Open to Close means staying at Kilroy’s, one of IUs most popular bars from open (11AM) to close (3AM). Can you do the math? I can’t. But someone told me that is 16 hours.
If you accomplish the challenging task, you get your photo on the wall, a t-shirt, and a ton of pride.
We counted off:
- Kerry Ipema
- Kevin Smith
- Anna Blankenburger
- Matt Martin
- Chris Lee
- Leo Martinez
Perfect combo. We ROCKED open to close. We played Scattegories, Boom, Catch Phrase, Eukere (not a fan) and Spades. We sun bathed (Anna in a bathing suit). We read, chatted, ate, drank, tallied our drinks, tweeted (#open2close) and danced. Most importantly, we video blogged. Every hour, one member of the team shared their secrets. (to be continued considering I packed my camera cord!)
With the help of our wonderful friends who came to visit- we powered through and achieved Kilroy’s glory. SUCCESS.
