Portland Bar Mitzvah Party Excitement
Tonight was Eugene’s Bar Mitzvah at Ararat Restaurant in Southeast Portland. The party went from 6 to 10 and did we have fun!
First off Eugene and me talked before the party about video games we like… Skyrim was our favorite. We then talked about the party and he did not look nervous at all… actually he was ready to get down and party. But first, a little soft jazz background for arriving guests as requested by mom Irina.
The food smelled really good and when the kids were done eating, they were ready to have a good time and the party started off right with girls and guys flooding the dance floor! We amped it up with a swing dance competition. The winners won Starbucks gift cards and the kids were raising those prizes like they were going to take everybody to Starbucks… LOL.
‘The Hora’ was next and all guests were on the floor as both Eugene and his sister went up in the chair and the family was dancing it up. After announcing the limbo, all the kids starting practicing for it. But first, we had cake and sang then went into the limbo. Everybody tried it out… even the adults! But the kids have the experience and boys won over the girls in this one, even though the girls did give the guys a run for their money.
When the party ended, I asked Eugene how do you feel and he said ‘I am tired and my feet hurt’ but he said he loved it. That made me smile 🙂 See you all at the next party! -Steve
