Saturday night was a great party from which I'm still recuperating. Everybody had a great time, and it was one of our most successful parties yet! Thanks to "On the Rocks" for doing the bartending - if you need a great bartender in Central Florida, email me for their info - they were great! Also, thanks to G, L, and J for helping out with all of the setup and decorations. I owe you all a dinner at Cheesecake Factory or something in the next few weeks.

I always liked how Maxim and other magazines do that "By the Numbers" thing in the front of the magazine where they break everything to the basic numbers. So, I decided to try it. Here's the Avitable Halloween Party 2006, by the numbers:
