Friday Night Bunco


My neighborhood Bunco met on Friday night for our last time this year, besides our annual couples Bunco in June and it was a wonderful night as always. There is a special bond in this group, because we have history (I will be in my 18th year) and there is a certain comfort in that. Each time we get together, there is a different flow to the night. Sometimes we start to play Bunco right away and sometimes we can't pull ourselves away from our conversations, so we can get started. This was one of those nights and we only managed to play one very slow round. But no one really cared - it is about getting together with friends and supporting each other in conversation and advise. Bunco is the excuse to get together - the connection to each other is what has kept us coming to play all these years.

Our hostess made these delicious pomegranate martinis to start the evening. They were made with pomegranate juice, grand mariner and a splash of champagne. So good, that I enjoyed most of it before I remembered to take a photo :-)

We each bring a dish, so our hostess doesn't have to do all the work. There is always a delicious variety of food.

Everyone went home with towel on this night. We fight over these towels when we roll a Bunco, but our hostess had enough for everyone. And, our rule is no hiding your towel. You must keep it on your shoulder, so it can be stolen throughout the evening as more Buncos (three of a kind) are rolled. Part of our history and our tradition, all done in laughter and fun.

Happy Monday!



  1. Here you go again....girl after my own heart.....pommegrante martini! YES! Your Bunco night is awesome! All those years....friendship, food, conversations, and history. What a thing to cherish! Do you have room for one more!

  2. Sounds like such fun . . . love traditions with friends, family, food, laughter, conversation, solving problems of the world. If Bunco keeps you together . . . keep on keeping on. (Love the towels too!)

  3. I'd love to join a Bunco group. Don't know of any here. :( The refreshments look wonderful, especially the cocktail. xo

  4. This is wonderful that you have been together for 18 years! I was part of a BUNCO group for a couple of years, but they had been together a long time before I joined. Such fun. Ann

  5. Sounds like TONS of fun:) Enjoy your week dear Vicki, HUGS!

  6. What a fun thing to look forward every year! I'm following you now too! I'm also an empty nester as of two years ago but...hey...who's counting! I know I'm going to enjoy reading your blog!

  7. I don't know what Bunco is, but it does look like you are all really enjoying the gathering. Love that towel idea, too.

  8. This looks like so much fun and I'm embarrassed to say I've never played Bunco in my life. But I've sure had a lot of friends with Bunco groups as long lasting as yours has been! Hooray for girlfriends!

  9. Sounds like a terrific neighbourhood to live in. Girls, games AND martinis!! Sounds wonderful.

  10. Looks like you all eat well..I've never played Bunco..There is a group here that plays..Maybe someday..

  11. Such a delicious drink! We have a Bunco group :) .. and I host the annual Holiday event. It's crazy but I always enjoy it.


  12. That sounds like so much fun! I love the towel part. I hosted Bunco here in December. We had a blast!! Lots of Christmas food and crazy sweaters. That has been the best way to get to neighbors here in my new neighborhood.
