Thanks everyone! So i didn't bowl a 300. I did roll the dice by eating firecracker shrimp and had an ultimate margarita with the good tequila :D ....but my luck didn't hold out (or really my colon) there was cheap bowling alley toilet paper and I had to dig out my immodium :roll: .

It was bittersweet, but a fine celebration nonetheless.
