Xmas on Europe’s West Coast is X-STREME

Posted by len on December 27th, 2007

We’re not making up that “Europe’s West Coast” slogan. That’s actually appearing on gigantic billboards around town lately. I guess Lisbon is so desperate for a hip reputation they’re actually willing to compare themselves to Los Angeles?! Wow! Or perhaps they’re thinking of “the OC”?
Anyhoo, Christmas Day has come and gone here in the “Watts of Europe”.
How do you spend such a day in an incredibly cool city like Lisbon?
Well, we woke up around 11am. We had a friend coming over at 3pm so we made crepes, cleaned a bit, and when she called to say she’d be an hour and a half late we started drinking pomegranate cosmopolitans (pom juice, triple sec, lime juice, and vodka). Then we switched to red wine since we wanted to have some with her.
When she arrived we reacquainted ourselves with the cosmos, baked chocolate chip cookies, watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas while eating chicken, sang some christmas carols, then watched Bad Santa.
Finally, around 11pm, we headed out to meet friends of hers at an Irish pub, had a few beers, then went to a small dance club where we gyrated until about 3 am.

Could you detect the American-ness in that chronology? Yes, we miss aspects of America.
But for those that think being away has made us into alcoholics: sorry, you just didn’t know us before.

    Glad you’re having an ex-stremely great time! (or is that ‘Christ-stremely’?)

    May you continue to spread your cosmopolitan culture throughout Lisbon in 2008!

    Miss you!

    I knew you were alcoholics. My dirty secret, as you know, is that I’m an alcoholic when I’m on vacation.
