Rockin’ the Roundhouse 2016

Posted on October 15, 2016 by under Life.    

Brian and I were fortunate enough to attend Rockin’ the Roundhouse a couple of weeks ago. RnR is a Wichita State University Alumni Association fundraising event. It’s not that one that my work sponsors so Brian and I actually had to purchase our own tickets for this one.

We purchased our ticket during the early bird ticket sales period, forgetting to take into account that I had a 5 AM flight to Orlando the next day. We are usually very good planners but Brian and I have both been extremely busy of late so we haven’t been having our regular weekly calendar meetings, which is probably how our schedule got completely out of whack.

We already paid for our tickets so we decided to go anyway. We just agreed not to stay out late. Here are some pictures from the event…

In true “nerd fashion” I donned my school’s colors. I also wore the Wu Shock pin that April (WSU Foundation) gave me.

Because I’m a PRO at these types of events, I knew better than to wear heels. LOL. It’s a little bit weird to wear Converser sneakers with a dress when you’re almost 40 but I think the yellow socks (which were Brian’s recommendation) completed the look so the whole outfit went together perfectly. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Besides, are you just as old as you feel anyways?

I ran into my friend Teresa from bowling right when we walked in.

Here’s one of the participating vendors, Sweet Allie B’s.

This is the Butler County Community College-Bakery Arts food station.

Untitled

This is Molino’s Mexican Cuisine.

Untitled

I wish I can remember which vendor this is… This is what I get for waiting to blog about the event two weeks later. Ugh.

Untitled

SmallCakes was there serving up their delicious cupcakes.

Untitled

Blarney Stone Pub was there.

Untitled

As was Deano’s Grill and Tapworks.

Untitled

Here’s a picture of Brian checking out the Greystone Steak and Seafood offering. I think this is the Greystone station.

Untitled

Blue River Mexican Grill.

Untitled

Redrock Canyon Grill.

Untitled

This picture makes me wonder if the Dunkin’ Donuts guy had some Dunkin’ coffee before the event. LOL.

Untitled

Nothing Bundt Cakes.

Untitled

Granite City Food and Brewery.

Untitled

The Sodexo food station.

Untitled

Rita’s Italian Ice.

Untitled

And I think that’s it. I’m pretty sure I got a photo of all of the vendor stations present. Because I just have to take a picture of everything.

This is where they were promoting the WSU Alumni Association app which, of course, I already had. All self-respecting WSU alums should have it. The app notifies you of important alumni events and also has a list of Alumni Association benefits just in case you’ve forgotten. My favorite is the 15% OFF discount on logo merchandise at university bookstore. They have some really cool WSU swag there.

Untitled

Ran into my friend Junetta Everett, loyal WSU fan, fellow alum, and one of my role models. She is super amazing!

Untitled

Here’s our obligatory event selfie. Had to do it.

Untitled

This is the main program area before everyone starting filing in. The them this year was “Red White and Wu” thus the red, white and blue decorations. And, then here’s an after photo…

Untitled

There were lots of great silent auction items. I bid on a few but didn’t win any of them. Much to Brian’s relief, I’m sure.

Untitled

It was a great event overall but, besides meeting the wonderful couple at our table who are avid WSU basketball fans, the evening was a little dull. I think because none of our friends were there. We’re going to have to talk a bunch of people into going with us next year or not go at all. These types of events are definitely more fun when you’re attending with a group of people.
