Contrary to what you might think, bunco night does not always look like this:
Or maybe you're picturing something entirely different, thanks to RHOC?
The bunco parties I've been to fall somewhere in the middle of these two extremes...but probably land a little closer to RHOC, if we're being honest! P.S. Slade's mullet is....wow.
A little over a year ago, my friends Laura and Lynsey decided to organize a monthly bunco party, and I'm so grateful that they did! It has been so much fun, and such a good excuse to get all the girls together at least once a month. You need 12 girls (or guys) to play, and we rotate each month so that everyone gets a chance to host. The host serves dinner and/or appetizers, and each girl brings a bottle of wine and $5. The winner walks away with $40, and the girl with the most buncos gets $20. At least I think that's the breakdown. I wouldn't know since I've never won. Yep, that's right. In the 14 months we've been playing, I haven't won a single dollar. I must be cursed!!
Now doesn't that look exciting??
To mix things up a little, we started having themed parties four months ago. Our first was a "snow bunny" theme in January. Pssst - if you look really hard, you'll notice someone opted to wear boy shorts instead of pants!
And then of course we had a Valentine's theme. I gotta say, I expected more pink!! Don't mind my awkward crouching pose...
Our most recent theme was St. Paddy's Day. Loved all the green!!
The only thing I don't like about bunco is the guaranteed hangover at work the next day. But you know what, that is just the price you have to pay sometimes! So go out, grab some friends/co-workers/family members/strangers off the street, and have yourself a rowdy night of bunco!! It is so much more fun than it sounds, I promise!
