Last Friday I attended a 50 states party, an attempt to better educate ourselves about the 50 states during this election season. In reality it was just a party, with some pretty tame costumes. There were about 25 people there, but not quite 25 states as many people just assumed no one else would dress as California. I went as Kentucky (pictured) and was pretty happy with how my costume turned out. Actually, the cheap Kentucky bourbon was not mine, but it fit the theme. The chicken doubled as dinner and a costume, so I think that’s worth extra points. A few of the other states and the costumes that I remember being there.
- Kansas – John Deer Tractor Driver
- New Jersey – Indian Gas Station Attendant
- Louisiana – Make Levees, not War
- District of Columbia – Beltway
- Ohio – Joe the Plumber
- Hawaii – Hula Girl
- Maine – Lobster
- North Carolina
That’s about all I can remember as far as the represented states go.
