The picnic is over and the votes are in! Ann, Bobby, Christy, Hillary, Meredith and special guest Gus reveal the winners from the Oreo Challenge at the 2019 LRB Picnic while discussing the merits of the unholy suicide/graveyard bowl of cookie leftovers fueling our lakeside afterparty.
It’s a very special Thanksgiving edition of Little Red Bandwagon! Ann’s Apple-Pear Cruble Pie is going in the oven once Bobby’s spatchcocked turkey comes out. Hillary is hitting the (worst possible) road. Meredith is ready to play an important roll/role. Mike is ready for some football. And outspoken Thanksgiving food-hater Christy is fleeing to Palm Springs.
Nobody’s attended more TBTL events than Christy (except Luke, I guess), so she and Ann get together for this quick minisode to recap the TBTL Night at the Mariners event from September. Hey, it’s our podcast, so we can post an episode whenever we want! It was an evening full of fun moments, including a hilarious Hanna Brooks Olsen, Luke’s fly dance moves, the pursuit of one of Ellie’s life ambitions, and way too much thinking about Andrew’s tongue. Plus, a kid bathroom emergency, fond(?) remembrances of The Mummy’s antics on the Tour de Terrible, and a discussion of the “living hell” that is curriculum night.
It’s a special episode of the show as the Little Red Bandwagon (minus Mike) is hanging out in the disgusting, ugly, dumb city of Seattle. After a fun evening with the Wagoneers at Gas Works Park, we’re spending the next day at the lake, and manage to squeeze in a quick debrief of all the fun. Then we go along with the ladies on their Singles tour around the city, which includes conversation about music, Matt Dillon’s fashion, and movie trivia, plus a little light stalking. Additionally, there’s boat cake, pickle talk, and a visit from a surprise guest.
