It ain't a party bus until...

...someone dances on the pole.
Yep. That's how this story ends. But I guess I should really start at the beginning.

Every month (usually the second Sunday), my girlfriends and I get together and play bunco. When it's your turn to host, you come up with a theme and provide table snacks, dinner and a signature drink. There are 12 girls so you only host once per year. Last year, I hosted a pajama party and this year I hosted an Irish-themed bunco for St. Patty's Day.

For August, our group took a bunco field trip instead. Our hostess is in the process of selling her house so she didn't want a bunch of rowdy girls messing up her place. So, she rented a party bus and the "school girls" went out to learn about wine.

Our hostess was so cute. She had all the fixins' for sacked lunches - pb&j, turkey and cheese sandwiches. Bagged chips. Apples and bananas. Juice boxes. Our brown paper bags even had our names on them.

We all loaded onto the bus and away we to experience wine country in Amador County. Our first stop was Helwig. A few of the girls were wine club members so we got our own private tasting.

Even though our time was technically up, our driver offered to take us to one last winery, Cooper Vineyards.

It was a nice, fun, relaxing day. Until the bus ride back home, that is. Like I said, it ain't a party bus until....someone dances on the pole. After a lot of wine and a little bit of Def Leppard "Pour Some Sugar on Me", we got our dancing on.

But it was a whole lot of fun...these girls are the best!!!

This is awesome. Your friends seem like so much fun!

We have wineries not too far from where I live and I have never thought of taking a bus with a stripper pole! I am going to suggest this for the next time we go wine tasting!

How fun! We go to Amador often to go wine tasting but have never rented a party bus! Love it! I can't say I've ever played bunco but it looks like you girls have fun! Maybe I need to try. Love your blog!
