Grumpy Old Men

I tooootally dig this idea for a Grumpy Old Men birthday party, featured on one of my favorite entertaining websites, hostess with the mostess. This "no girls allowed" event was brought to light by Ryan Haack, photographer and husband of Jesi Haack, of Jesi Haack Weddings for their close friend's 30th birthday celebration.

The guys got together for a super early start at 5:00 am to put on their old man thrift store threads and give a surprise 'coughing and hacking' wake-up call to the guest of honor. How cute do they all look in their old man ensembles?

The day was planned out for some good, solid, goofy male bonding time. Some favorites of the itinerary: long boarding by the local surf spot, breakfast before a sweet 18 holes, lunch at the local clubhouse complete with their favorite whiskey and scotch, swim races, and finally ending at the local dive bar, Goat Hill Tavern.

As much as I love a day of girly pampering, I'm a little jealous of this afternoon out with the boys. It just looks like a blast, doesn't it?
