BLACKLIGHT T2 (the morning after)

_mg_6833.jpg

Last night we hosted T2 (thanksgiving 2) at our apartment in Bed Stuy, with the theme this year being “blacklight.” Truly, one of the most tripped out dining experiences I’ve ever had. Someone best described the evening as a “lost boy’s feast,” (“Hook”):

because we mainly hogged out on cakes, frosting, shredded coconut, starches coated in melted cheez whiz, meringue, candy, marshmallow, devilled eggs, meats, popcorn, chips, flaming hot cheetohs, etc… We sure were lucky this year with this potLUCK! With the majority of the dishes people brought being of a vague processed sweet or salty flavor, underneath a blacklight, we were all definitely left with the feeling, “what the fuck did I just eat?” and “who cares!” Thanks to Erika Neola for taking these sweet photos.Here are some photos of food:

Dana Strasser made this very elegant pineapple meringue.

Those devilled eggs were so trippy, and so was that FACE!!

Jess Laskosky made this elegant chocolate cake with marshmallow icing, garnished with candy buttons and decorative windmills.

Even these cheap plastic utensils looked very elegant underneath the blacklight.

In the tradition of T2, we prepare TWO birds, this year they were “baby turkeys” (wamp wah), but very moist and delicious. They came out during dessert time, after people had already fully gorged themselves on frosted cakes, candy, and macaroni. I did not get any good photogaphy of the birds this year except for this blurry shot that I took:

This particular chicken was brined and basted in MOUNTAIN DEW and stuffed with crunchy CHEETOHS. For the basting sauce, I made a mountain dew reduction to intensify the citrus flavor. The second chicken was brined in salt and honey water, glazed with honey (because honey looks like uranium underneath a blacklight), and stuffed with WHITE BREAD.

To enhance our dining experience, Lisa Ramsey was on make-up duty. We wound up doing make-up on each other as the night progressed, and here are our weird results:

Here is Coco, one of our favorite faces of the evening.

Chris Duffy had this skull on his face to match his t-shirt.

Zachariah Durr went with a “text” approach.

Daren has some very confusing make-up done on him.

Shawn Lovejoy took advantage of “chiaroscuro.”

Afterwards, after everyone had left, we turned the lights back on and realized what we had just eaten (Erika Neola did NOT take these sloppy photos):

Here is a photo of our evil-looking blacklight chandelier:

So in conclusion, foods that we found to have reacted well underneath a blacklight are:

  • honey
  • tonic water
  • meringue
  • devilled eggs
  • candy buttons
  • shredded coconut
  • icing
  • potato chips
  • pasta
  • meat bones

Foods that did NOT react well were:

  • chocolate
  • fried rice
  • meat
  • baby corn
  • black beans
  • salad greens
  • onions
  • NERDS

This T2 was truly a very valuable learning experience. On a final note, here is a photo that looks like a cat’s face, do you see it?:

Happy T2!

    • Four years have come and gone since we bid a sad farewell to Josh and Geney. I never knew Geney, yet heraing my good friend Josh boast about her all the time I’m sure she was quite a nice woman. I’ve known Josh for quite some time. We served in the Army together. Josh served in the Airborne Infantry and Rocket Artillery and was a fine Soldier to say the least. One of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. After 8 years in the Army, in combat jobs without so much as a scratch; what a crying shame that his young life would be cut short while on vacation by oxygen thieves such as the Sifrits. I can only hope and pray that these two sick individuals will face judgement in the highest court of their maker and spend the rest of eternity rotting in hell.Love and Honor. Miss you Bro.Jim B.

  2. Did you try white chocolate? We were going to try to do a white chocolate fountain under blacklight…. Let me know if you tried this with any success….

  3. Concordo contigo Carol. Nossa, que neura por causa de um coenmte1rio. Eu achei o me1ximo o que escreveu, independentemente de ser fe3 ou ne3o, o the bitch is back e9 uma expresse3o hoje normal americana. A interpretae7e3o da frase seria algo como: “Eu voltei, meu bem. Agora os credticos que me aguentem”. Inclusive, diversos artistas usam essa expresse3o para se referir a eles mesmos!!! Enfim, achei o me1ximo, como sempre acho o site. E Kawata, valeu pela explicae7e3o, sf3 ficava vendo o videozinho focando em replay a bunda dela… isso sim, achei de mau gosto.

  4. kaekain desculpa se te oefdni, ne3o era a intene7e3o :Peu tb gosto mto da sawajiri e “the bitch is back” ne3o tem nada de pesado… bitch nem e9 um xingamento mais na lingua inglesa, sabe? c9 uma palavra super banal haha por sinal, e9 o nome de uma mfasica mto boa do Elton John ;DEntre meus amigos e conhecidos a gente tem uma me1xima de “sf3 falar mal de quem a gente ama” hahaha vc vai ver isso aqui no blog seeeempre!De qualquer forma, muito obrigada por acompanhar :) sinta-se a vontade para comentar sempre.
