Gangster Bunco

I love Monday and Friday Dawn days. I love Friday nights. I love every other Tuesday Willow Center.

And I love Bunco Thursdays.

My pal Whitney started a Bunco group a few months ago and I’m not sure I could have agreed to be a member any quicker than I did. We take turns hosting it and it’s held once a month. June was my month and we all know how I love a good theme. Welcome, my friends, to gangster bunco.

I love old school rap as much as I love a theme, so putting the 2 together came pretty natural I guess you could say.

Please look at my little signs again and laugh. You guys, I am so pleased with myself.

We had Backspin on sirius, a little mix tape of NWA, Warren G, Tupac, you name it.

Our regulars were there: Jamie, Whitney, Jacie, Jena, Jen, me, Rainy, Liz and then we had Jenny, Lauren, Amanda and Katie playing as subs for Tara, Brook, Suzanne and Amy. So many names.

So many names of some of the funnest girls I know!

(Jen likes to give a little sass…but it’s all bark, no bite)

And Ali joined us, too.

Her hair. You guys, HER HAIR!!! It’s the best shade of red you’ll ever find on a baby.


We all chip in $10 for prizes (Lauren won $20 and lip balm for most losses)


and bring an appetizer.

And obviously there are drinks. Who do you think we are?


Funny stickers make it a lot more fun (as if that was possible, right???)




Why do I love Bunco Thursdays? I get to hang out with a group of girls I normally wouldn’t. Not because I don’t enjoy them (clearly) but because our paths don’t cross regularly. Our kids aren’t the same age so we don’t see each other at school/events, we don’t attend the same church, that kind of thing. But I LOVE every single one of them! This group is particularly fun and easy going. We laugh a whole lot and can joke and make fun till the cows come home.

So, here’s the deal: start a bunco group.


Grab a friend and each of you ask 3 girls and ask 4 of THOSE girls to each invite another friend. That’s 12. Each person has to commit (I mean, loosely commit because it’s easy to get subs) to 1 night a month and then one month of hosting. I promise, it’s 3 hours you will look forward to every single month.

    Very good blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about
    in this article? I’d really like to be a part
    of online community where I can get responses from other
    knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
