Handsome Party: Handcake – the Revenge

Dirty Handsome and WASP-y Handsome get it done.

You know you’re on to something when a running joke gets taken up by your friends… and they get their parents to go along with it. This was from the Handcake Party after the 2009 Preakness Stakes. To use the phrase incorrectly, this begs the question of the Preakness this year: what’s more important, the filly or the filling? (Read on …)

Entertaining: Handcake Party

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009
Execute.

Execute.

For our next Handsome party tip and trick, we’d like to introduce to the Handsome faithful: The Handcake Party. As themed party ideas go, Handcake Party is almost elegant in its simplicity. So easy in fact, you can turn any simple get together into party city with handcake (the best party food idea). Handcake Party works as a 1st birthday idea, a sweet sixteen party, a bachelorette party, or a retirement party idea. All hail the handcake party.

The idea originated from a tradition Dirty Handsome’s brothers have each New Year’s Eve wherein they trek the 30 minutes in to town from the old family home to the grocery store. From there, you simply ask the bakery stooges to make a sheet cake that says “Handcake Party” on it. Once you’ve plowed through a few easy drinking games, simply bust out the cake and have everyone eat it sans utensils. Feel like kicking it up a notch? Decorate your own handcake and make it from a novelty batter like red velvet or funfetti.

Easy enough, but what is the real joy of a handcake party? (Read on …)

Entertaining: Gold Medal in Ice Luge

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

Having attended several parties, soirees, and get togethers over the holidays, we endeavor in January to provide you with some entertaining tips and tricks.

Art imitates life... if you've had enough to drink

Art imitates life... if you've had enough to drink

The ice luge – few party gimmicks compare in versatility, novelty, and brutal effectiveness. Need an easy drinking game? Themed party ideas? The ice luge is party city. The setup is simple: go wholesale and buy one piece of block ice. Cut a slight incline in the block ice using a chisel, chainsaw, or similar. Carve one chute from the top to the bototm of the incline. For an extra Handsome time, carve two similar chutes and hold races with your fellow party goers. Buy booze. That’s it – one of the best drinking games is at your disposal. Booze at the top becomes ice cold by the time it reaches your mouth at the bottom.

At first blush (trust me, someone will be blushing), this doesn’t seem like the classiest way to get a party going. (Read on …)

Congratulations to our dear friend who is begining a new kickass job at Marvel. As per usual, the agency world will miss him much more than he misses the agency world.

Handsome Party – The Conduit of Power

Sunday, September 14th, 2008
When you're the Conduit of Power, you must j.k. livin'

"The 'J' is for 'Just'; the 'K' is for 'Keep'"

Per the request of a certain reader (we have readers?) – a photo from Sunset Junction. When Pretty Handsome and Dirty Handsome combine using the coveted Matthew McConaughey-provided J.K. Livin’ armbands, awesome things are bound to happen. Like road sodas, some rocking music, or photos where it sort of looks like Dirty Handsome has arm muscle (we have arm muscle?).

Handsome Party – Always Party with Mom

Take me (and mom!) out to the ballgame...

As you may have surmised, the Handsome Association really likes to party in Los Angeles. This is made worse when family is in town, as our family also really likes to party. In honor of (most) of my family getting their power back after Hurricane Gustav (coverage at our real job here) here’s a photo of mom and I singing our hearts out during the 7th inning stretch at Dodger Stadium.

Suffice to say, it was that type of weekend

Suffice to say, it was this type of weekend

We’re working to get our house back to some semblance of the normal mess we live with as opposed to the expensive rental mess we had over the weekend. Our Sunset Junction roundup is coming, inlcuding:

  • Our review of Broken Social Scene’s performance
  • Other festival reviews and commentary
  • Instructions for frying a turkey
  • Cocktail suggestions for summer parties
  • Of course, some special Junction-themed Handsome Party

Handsome Party – This is Exhausting

All this reading is making us tired

All this reading is making us tired

Between working hard, playing hard, and doing our best drinking, eating, and style research for this little side project, we occasionally find ourselves completely exhausted. Nothing puts you to sleep like a good book and a comfy chair (we’re looking forward to football season…).
