This week, amid all the construction and painting and sewing and stitching and meeting and writing, we also found time to celebrate. Specifically, on Tuesday, with The Sandlot-themed bash for Assistant Production Coordinator Drew Cohoe’s birthday.
Check out the spread!
I’ll be honest. I’ve never seen the movie but I can only assume this cake is really on point.
The Birthday Boy!
The Prize Drawer! What wonders does it hold?
Guess the number of gumballs in the jar! Everyone scoffed when I wrote 103, yet it was good enough for 2nd place!
Plus a box of oreo Pocky AND two handfuls of gumballs!
Then we followed that up yesterday with a Curb Your Enthusiasm-themed birthday bash for our Line Producer Robbie David who turned – oh, I don’t – I’m guessing 50-something!
Best Birthday Cake Ever!
There were special character balloons, party hats, and a special screening of some of Robbie’s favorite episodes.
There were games. In “Do You Respect the Wood”, you had to identify all eight types of wood. I got zero. The next (better) game had you building the Larry David sandwich from the list of ingredients provided. I came in second.
Which meant MORE prizes. A pack of Junior Mints and the pink thing Akemi had fun with last night (It’s a giant bubble wand).
Other prizes won included a Black Panther mask, a nerf basketball net, and two framed photos of San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich!
But wait! There’s more! We ended the festivities with this literal coup de grace!
Piñata!!! And inside? More gumballs (that I suspect may have been leftover from preceding party).
Who doesn’t love a party?
