More Saturday Fun: Hellboy 2 Wrap Party

As if we didn’t do enough on Saturday, what with our big lunch and art fair excursion, Saturday night was the Hellboy 2 wrap party at Hemingway’s. There were snacks, some good chocolate cake and lots of dancing. The music was a fun, eclectic party mix that made me feel like I was at a bar mitzvah. They even played Hava Nagila. Seriously.

There were tons of people there and we didn’t know a lot of them, since Evan works in the office and not on set, but it was good to see the people we did know.

Of course, now, leave it up to me to get a bizarre but not serious injury–alcohol in my eye. We were on the dance floor when some Hungarian song came on, and the Hungarian crew went crazy. They were standing around in a circle, clapping and jumping up and down around a few drinks. One guy picks up one of the drinks like he’s going to take it as a shot and instead of downing it, either ends up spilling or throwing it–and a good portion of it landed right on me and Evan, including in my eye. Ouch! It stung! And to make matters worse, when I turned around, grabbing my eye, a drunk girl elbowed me in the head. And to only add to this brief moment of chaos, we were in the process of asking the photographer to take a picture of us, and he was still trying to set up and take the photo while I was temporarily blinded. Thankfully, Evan ushered me off the dance floor, I went to the bathroom and dabbed at my eye to try to soak up the strong drink and salvage my makeup, and we took a photo when we got back on the dance floor a few minutes later.

All in all, though, great night. Saturday was just a whole great day, actually.

    I know… leave it up to me to get somewhat hurt in a bizarre way. At least I didn’t get trampled doing the hora at this party.

    That just sounded like a scene from a bad Ben Stiller movie! This is a case where LOL is actually appropriate.

    It’s all fun and games until someone boozes an eye.

    I heard that after I left someone knocked over a whole cabinet full of alcohol–glad I wasn’t there to feel the affects of that!
