Last week I hosted a fairly modest Bob’s Burgers BBQ/ swim party as a way to bring some good chums together and have an excuse to go crazy with decor. I painted some signs and backdrops, a playlist I compiled of the shows songs played in the background, and I even grilled burger sliders inspired by some of Bob’s recipes and the guy behind “The Bob’s Burgers Experiment” (I actually used the ingredients necessary, my favorite being: parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme for the Charbroil Fair burger!).
My Kuchi-Kopi invitations actually glow in the dark! That’s right!
As a party activity I made a little black book and scribbled “Erotic Friend Fiction” on the cover. The objective: (borrowed from high school English class) was to partake in a collaborative writing assignment which involved passing around the booklet as everyone added a paragraph to the story, making for some very hilarious erotica.
For favors I emblazoned lunch bags with the phallic “fish-rocket” logo from the “Bob Day Afternoon” episode and filled them with “Tina” glasses, a “Gene” kazoo, “Bob’s” mustache, “Linda’s” order pad, a pair of “Louise’s” bunny ears, Bob’s restaurant flyer, and made little “Burger of the Day” chalkboards for the nametags. Lastly, desserts were adorable little burger cupcakes!
I wasn’t able to go as “all out” as I initially wanted (I would have loved to have drawn all of my friends in the BB style), but I think things came together decently and more importantly: everyone enjoyed themselves! I can only hope that it was a party that Bob (or perhaps more so Linda…) would be proud of!
