Happy 40th, Bernie! Viva Von 10X, indeed - hot damn!

Well, what can I say? We had a fab cocktail party at the Aloha Alcohula (TM)* in honor of Bernie's 40th birthday!
Our wonderful guests - hot rodders, artists, musicians, the Usual Suspects and newbies - donned their swanky attire and joined us for martinis, much too much food, and mayhem. I cannot thank everyone enough for being fabulous guests and making this a very memorable event for Bernie, who so deserved it! Happy Birthday, Pootie-pie!

(a Johnny von 10x tribute by the joey Zone - With NO apologies to Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman!)

A shot o’ HOT DAMN gonna set my throat
Gonna set my throat on fire
Got a whole lot of shots down in front o’me--
Who set those stakes up higher?!?
There’s a thousand pretty women in THE tiki bar
But I wanna sit and talk about a CAR
For a gearhead like me that’s just about par
Viva VON 10X, viva VON 10X

How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn’t sleep a minute away
Oh, there’s chrome and lacquer and a kustom wheel
A swapmeet somewhere with sech-a-deal
Ya jes’ needs a strong liver and some balls o’ steel
Viva VON 10X, viva VON 10X

ALOHA ALCOHULA with its barlight flashin
And some drink glass smashin
All that good hooch down the drain
Another shot o’ HOT DAMN turnin day into nighttime
Turnin night into daytime
If you’ve been to THE bar
Youll never be the same again

I’m gonna keep on the run
I’m gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last dime
If I wind up broke up well
I’ll always remember that I had a swingin time
I’m gonna give it ev’rything I’ve got
So bartender please let those shots stay hot
And let me shout “HOT DAMN!” with ev’ry shot
Viva VON 10X, viva VON 10X,
Viva, viva VON 10X!!! :D

* Best DAMN tiki bar in CT

WAAAAAAAAAAH! That I was not there! Where is a picture of Wendy?! Where is the picture of the QoE in a DRESS?!!?! WANT pictures NOW!

Joey, faboo rewrite of the song! Wonderful!

The Queen said...

Um, I'll have to hunt some photos down as I was busy making martinis but I noticed others taking photos...

It is possible that everyone was so stunned by all the beauty that they were stopped in their tracks and forgot to take pictures....

Oh, and I'll send you a pic of moi in a dress....grumble....
