On Friday night, we hosted a private party at a bowling alley in Frederick, Maryland, to say thank you to all the readers who donated to help make RMNB last. We raised nearly $26,000, which is going to go a long way towards helping us do some special projects and improve in general.
But let’s talk about the party. It was a frigging blast and that’s not just because I got gifts for my 30th birthday (thanks, Sarah!). Around 80 of you drove up to our hood and bowled while the Terrace Lanes’ crew blasted unspeakably bad 90s music over the loud speakers. There was lots of drinking (a tenet of a good party), a lot of bad dancing (another tenet of a good party), and some unintentionally synchronized outfits.
We originally planned to end the party at 11:30 PM, but reader Charles just was like eff that, and extended everyone’s lanes until 12:30 AM.
That’s just the type of readers we have.
Amanda Bowen did us a solid and photographed the first hour of the party. Check those out, and please if you have any photos of your own, share them in the comments below.
