Dreaming of a Las Vegas martini party

So, our friend Molly is having a contest where everyone is asked to imagine a wonderful martini party and describe it for the chance to win fabulous martini prizes from Martini Art. At first I was like, "Oh my, no. This is not a contest for me because I am so demure and would never imbibe alcoholic beverages." But then I woke up and thought, "Hells to the yeah, I have some partying to do!" And this is how my dream martini party would go down.

First of all, it's a girls night and everyone who reads Funny Gals would be expected to be at the airport after having arranged for husbands, children and pets to be on their own for at least a weekend (or until Thursday if it goes especially well). We are loading onto a private jet (hey, in my fantasies, I can afford private jets, OK?) and flying to Las Vegas. While I could have picked some island someplace, I'm choosing LV because it's close enough to have the biggest martini fan I know join us (and no, I'm not kissing up to Molly for contest purposes, but she has to be there because she knows so many amazing martini recipes and because we have been promising practically since we met her that we'd be getting together to sip martinis so how could I leave her out?!?)

We would arrive at the rooftop deck I had arranged for and start partaking in every martini flavor you can imagine-- chocolate (of course), pomegranate, blueberry, key lime pie, strawberry cheesecake (I actually made that one up, but how good does that sound?!?). There would be shirtless bartenders and waiters (get your mind out of the gutter-- they're all male!) who would have their own specialty martini recipes or would lead you over to a bar filled with different flavors to let you mix your own. A little of this, a little of that... voila! a watermelon martini with a scoop of lemon sherbet. Or a chocolate martini with marshmallows and Graham cracker crumbs.

As for the end of the night, I'll leave that to your imagination... for you single gals, I wish you a hot waiter to take home; for you married ones, have another martini!; and for you moms, I wish you a full night of sleep before you head home to the little ones.

And, Molly, I want to thank you for having this contest because even if I don't win, describing my perfect martini party has put me in the mood for a girls night... or at least a chocolate martini when I get home from work tonight!

You rock! You are officially entered!!!

The only thing I am disappointed in is that you didn't hold it at the Bellagio and you didn't invite George. But nonetheless, you are entered!

KAT beat me to the punch. but. i was thinking of a similar kind of party, as we would naturally.

except that we'd take a limo to the Wynn and the cast of Oceans 12 would be waiting to meet us.

Ok, ok, I apologize for not going into detail about the specific hotel. To be honest, I was dreaming more about the yummy martinis and making sure we could get all the girls I love there than where it would be held. Details, details!

I got the prizes in last night. I think I might just keep them all for myself!

SJ, I did one better than you over at Mama's blog, I sent a video AND a picture!!!

I hate to say it but you didn't win, but Meg who lives not far from you did, so you really need to invite her over to show you that cool shaker and you can show her how to make a proper martini!

Go congratulate her now and get that martini party in the works - I want to see photos!!

I like your martini party! A girls night out followed by a good nights sleep sounds amazing to me!
