A. Guess the song
There are a limited set of 80’s songs that the DJs at Skully’s play. Initiate the game by leaning forward and yelling the name of the band you think will be played next. Your friend will nod approvingly and name their own band. If you are on that night, guess name of band and song title. You are not allowed to say B-52’s “Love Shack” or you will be escorted out of the bar.
How’d we do? We only played once and it took about 45 minutes for me to win. I think I guessed New Order.
B. Find the meme
Skully’s has it own memes. Look for the following people and check them off as you locate them:
- Damon Zex (local celeb)
Damon was not there that night.
- Terminator Guy (check for the fingerless gloves and sunglasses)
Here he is:
- Old Man (dude is old and scouting for 21 year olds. I’m guessing he was 70 in the 80’s.)
Here is the Old Man
- 80’s chicks (20 somethings who are decked out in 80’s garb)
These two were dressed more 80's punk, but I think the judges will let this one slide.
- First time lesbians (the dance close, they grind, they make out, tomorrow they will laugh.)
Here they are! I don't think they are full time, only part time. Didn’t get the photo of them making out, but believe me! Smoochie smoochie!
- Really desperate drunk guy (tries to dance with every girl in the place, spills his beer on the top of your shoe, makes his way to the stage and foolishly dances with the girl that is really a guy.)
This guy was pretty close. Two beers and a headband? He did a pretty classy job of being "That Guy."
- Girl that is a Guy (Look closely. (S)he’s there.)
Did not see him/her. Sorry.
- Outlanders (The local Goth bar is closed (again) and they need a place to hang
Hello Kitty Girl
C. Where’s is Doug?
In this game, find the fat older guy that looks like me and point him out to the team. Now that I am older, we look for a fat young guy that looked like me. Dave made this game famous one night when I found an old, fat “Doug” and said, “Hey, that’s me in ten years.” Dave looked at the “Doug” and then back at me and said, “Five.”
Here is “Doug in
D. Call your friend and leave a message
When one of us can’t be there, the others will wait for a good song to come one and call the left out friend. Hold the phone up and sway. The next morning, left out friend gets a three minute long static bundle with a slurred voice saying, “You missed out.”
I called Acton at some point, but I didn’t hold the phone up in the air.
BONUS! Here was another part of the article about how to prepare/what to do at Skully’s:
8. Drink More
I dance better and you look prettier when I drink more. When you are done with your beer, stick it in your back pocket or under the stage. Don't be an asshole and set your half finished drink on the edge of the stage. Jerks.
Stick Empty Beer in Back Pocket
Stick Empty Beer under the Stage
Empty Beer Other
I like Other better

Here is my boss Erik dancing with Michelle.
And here, my friends, is a heart-breaking photo of Jenn, Dave, Doug and Meshell. Dave is moving to Maine next month. Meshell is heading to New York City. Skully's will never, ever be the same.
