July 5th: CINCO DE JULIO!

Damn what a night. Stephen you easily topped off your previous 3 attempts at a great party with this one. The turnout was simply dumbfounding. Several pictures and memories were made that night, and we definitely appreciate everyone that came out to make Stephen's dream come true. And if I spelled your name wrong (or if I'm just completely off) please let me know.

UPDATE: A video compilation of the party by James Yonten.


First off though, the end of the SD trip. Annabelle's enjoying the pictures from the House of Blues from the other night.

Headed downtown to the shop. Stopped by Blends SD to check out the sale. Irwin and Edwin man the canopy. That's a lot of shoes.

The other view from 8th St.

Dude, Annabelle will you just marry me already?
Photobucket

Big Geeoner opened up shop.
Photobucket

Flo and Julz came through at opening too. Had to take a quick timer shot.
Photobucket

Gee and Flo checkin' out the pictures as well. "I was so FADED!" -Gian
Photobucket

Bossman Jay talkin' business with the employees.
Photobucket

Eric (steadyBOUTIQUE/Unsteady) made an appearance as well.
Photobucket

Arsalon (Neighborhood) did some shoppin' and talkin'. Seriously, stop matching.
Photobucket

Roxy aka BLACK SUSHI!
Photobucket

Drove back home to Anaheim and got a few last minute items. On the way to Stephen's! (That's Brimo behind me.)
Photobucket

The tabletops from Home Depot. These were a great idea.
Photobucket

Stephen and Duy put up some decorations. The decor was not promising of a great party, that's for sure...
Photobucket

Balloons. Seriously?
Photobucket

This was the only decoration I really liked. Great custom of your original piece Amy!
Photobucket

PHASE 1: Tacos (Stephen started yelling these random phases throughout the night)
The taco cart was a major hit. They ran outta food! Brian enjoyed it very much so.
Photobucket

John, Wilson, Vic, and Jessica.
Photobucket

Jeff, Marcos, Barbara, and Harrison.
Photobucket

Anna and James.
Photobucket

Clarence, Jason/Neeraj, and Duy.
Photobucket

Bruce, Jasmine, and Adam.
Photobucket

Terry came through!
Photobucket

Hmmm... more people are here now..
Photobucket

Cesar enjoyed the tacos as well.
Photobucket

HAI HAI!
Photobucket

Jared and Lina came through too! (I'm excited just cuz it wasn't expected at all.)
Photobucket

I remember when he used to tower over me. You're not THAT much taller... (when I stand on my tip toes... on a step....)
Photobucket

Me and Anna Louisa, the maker of the tacos.
Photobucket

PHASE 2: Games and Light Drinking
Stephen busted out the piñata. No pictures of the actual destruction.
Photobucket

Twister was not a big hit.
Photobucket

The kids from Alhambra started off the beer pong. Apparently Vic, Jessica, and Cesar were down the whole game by several cups...
Photobucket

But they made a comeback. Down to one cup each!
Photobucket

William, Wilson, and John ended up winning. Not much left for the losers to drink though.
Photobucket

Juliana and Jinny's crew got the first shots going. The whole "PHASE 1, PHASE 2,..." thing went out the window at this point. TIME TO PARTY!
Photobucket

Aviv gets his tap on.
Photobucket

"Jomo, take a picture of me and my brother!" -Jenny. See what happens when you don't come through in the clutch and bring your girlfriends?? THAT'S WHAT YOU GET JENNY!
In other news, Mike is lookin' very stylish in his white short-sleeve buttondown. Very summer.
Photobucket

Photobucket

Barbara and Michael came through too! Saved them a few tacos from the cart. Sorry I couldn't do the same for you Channy and Gaston! :(
Photobucket

Wow, holy shit for real? This many people showed up?! Stephen, Cesar, and I were expecting about 35 people to turnout, and shooting for 50 people as a joke . The final tally was around 70! Awesome.
Photobucket

Yup. More flipcup action. MATCH UP!
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Duy gets one in the stink from Jenny. Igniting old San Fran flames... and traditions.
Photobucket

Brimo getting his drank on.
Photobucket

JENGA! (I could not find a decent youtube video for that one.)
Photobucket

Clarebear!
Photobucket

Jenny and Marcos. Hahaha. Sorry to make you do that Marcos.
Photobucket

Me and Señor Esteban.
Photobucket

Cute.
Photobucket

Stephen's friend and former dormmate Cindy from U of M.
Photobucket

Same ol Stephen and Jenny...
Photobucket

Shots outside.
Photobucket

Cindy, myself, and Jenny (Michigan).
Photobucket

Stephen cannot take pictures.
Photobucket

More shots.
Photobucket

MORE SHOTS?!?
Photobucket

Now I see how I ended up all over the place... The past few shots pictures were taken within 15 minutes of each other... And am I seriously turning red?? I'm already brown!
Photobucket

I'm seriously astonished by this turnout.
Photobucket

KEGSTAND!
Photobucket

Me, Michael, and Cesar.
Photobucket

We knocked Michael out and stole Barbara away. SUCKER!
Photobucket

Photobucket

James, Jenny, Corwin (HAPPY 25th birthday!), and myself.
Photobucket

Papa Bruce giving me the heimlich.
Photobucket

Yea.... So I guess I was dancing a lot..
Photobucket

And I battled someone and topped my set with a suicide flip..
Photobucket

I seriously don't remember this..
Photobucket

Sorta remember this. Diana!
Photobucket

Me and Amy!
Photobucket

Bruce and Stephen getting their velo on.
Photobucket

Quote of the Night: "Bruce, please get Stephen laid so he stops humping guys." -Amy, Stephen's sister.
Looks like Bruce failed.
Photobucket

I think this is where Bruce had my camera for the rest of the night. Thanks for continuing the picture-taking B. Jasmine is stylin' in the cap.
Photobucket

Whoever gave me this cup of water, I thank you.
Photobucket

Jasey-poo!
Photobucket

This looked kinda serious. Michael, we were just kidding. We didn't even kiss her!
Photobucket

Nice close-up.
Photobucket

Even nicer close-up!
Photobucket

Apparently Stephen set his crotch on fire for a good 10 seconds. Will and Eileen console him.
Photobucket

Well maybe Stephen's turning back to the other way...
Photobucket

Helen and Arine!
Photobucket

Photobucket

Winter Formal 2002!
Photobucket

And looks like someone took my camera to Del Taco. Thanks Bruce for Del. I THINK I had some...
Photobucket

Duy, Stephen, and I made a trip to Jack in the Box for some breakfast the next day.
Photobucket

Stephen lent me a pair of his gigantic flannel shorts, and honestly, I need a pair of these. Too comfortable.
Photobucket

We were waiting for the Wimbledon Men's Final (CONGRATS RAFAL NADAL!) to resume after rain delays.
Photobucket

Irony: they were watching I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry. Also notice that Stephen is wearing Duy's shirt from yesterday. Still super gay.
Photobucket

We cleaned up after breakfast. Stephen and Duy were laughing at the balcony.
Photobucket

Stephen threw my camp chair over the balcony last night. DICK!
Photobucket

Cindy found these two dogs running in the streets at 2am. We kept them overnight and left a msg for the owners. Meet Charlie and Shailai.
Photobucket

Photobucket

They're the sweetest dogs I've ever seen. Very playful and well trained! Cindy and I took them for a walk later after cleanup. Aren't they beautiful?
Photobucket

Duy, Stephen, Aviv, and I made a trip to Chipotle for lunch. Stephen dropped off the keg to BevMo as well. The final tally of consumed alcohol, this keg, 60 bud lights, 6 handles of hard liquor, 6 2-liter sodas (that was not enough), a couple bottles of Coronas and 24 water bottles (definitely not enough).

Once again thank you to everyone that came out last night. The house was relatively clean for a party, and there were no remnants of puke in any of the sinks/bathrooms/floors. I'm glad that everyone from the different groups actually talked to everyone else and got along (Vic's friends from Alhambra, Juliana's friends from College, Amy's friends from college, Stephen's friends from college, and of course the elementary/middle/high school friends). That was the most random collection of people that I've seen here. Seems like everyone got home safe as well. Hope everyone enjoyed themselves (and I apologize if I did anything to offened/alienate/weird-out any of you). If you've got pictures, lets trade! And of course congratulations to Stephen for hosting an epic,... nah fuck that, a LEGENDARY party. Fuck the "E" word.

When's the next one?

Also, if you have any additional links to pictures or videos, please feel free to post them in the comments section. Thanks!

Somehow I always end up having incriminating pictures in your blogs if I'm present at the events! :)
