For one of my final weekends in Alaska, all of my nearest and dearest gathered for a karaoke sendoff at my favorite dive bar in town — Asia Garden. Fittingly, my gal pals serenaded our group to TLC‘s No Scrubs and Coolio’s Gangsta’s Paradise as we toasted to some pretty amazing memories.
Prior to this weekend, we only attended this venue in costume — evidence below.
Our inaugural visit to AG was for a Dress as Your Drink birthday bash. Between the birthday girl, dressed as Grey Goose, singing My Humps and us tres amigos struggling to drink with our mustaches (it’s harder than it looks) on, we fell in love with the tacky, yet hilarious Garden.
Just call us Juke Box Hero(es). When you show up for an 80’s party and find a DeLorean in the parking lot — it’s a sign from the rock gods that it’s going to be an epic evening. DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’.
There is no better way to say Bye, Bye 20’s than on the karaoke dance floor — especially if you bring your own props and backdrop for a photo booth between sets.
HELLO RETIREMENT. Asia Garden is known for their Mai Tais — no better way to get into a retirement state of mind than with a tropical cocktail and tacky golf gear.
