Turkey Leg Ball 2011 Recap
Hopefully you all had a good time Turkey Leg Ballin’ with us this year. We certainly enjoyed ourselves and, considering how awkward it was when we tried to do it on the mic at the party, wanted to again say thank you to everyone who came out. It’s incredibly awesome and incredibly humbling to meet the people who read the things we write, especially when it turns out that you’re one hell of a well dressed and good looking crowd. Here’s to hoping that a whole bunch of ties and cocktail dresses went to the cleaners today for stuffing muffin stain removal. Also, we drank the bar completely dry, which we should all be equally proud and ashamed of.
It’s important that we take this time to thank our sponsors and partners. Union Square Events delivered an incredible sampling of food, including those buttermilk biscuit bacon sliders that we saw people stuffing in their pockets for the ride home. Hopefully you all stocked up on some Madeline Chocolate as well. That oughta cross Mom’s Christmas present off the list. Absolut Vodka, New Zealand Wine, The Macallan Single Malt Scotch, Bulldog Gin and Evian Water all deserve big love for bringing some classy drinks to the table. MKG, thank you for dealing with our insane requests (live turkeys) and running a seamless event. And finally, to The Beistle Co. out of Shippensburg, PA. We have no idea why you created a giant inflatable turkey leg, and who besides us would buy such a ridiculous thing, but thanks for existing.
Look for photos and the official Turkey Leg Ball Spotify playlist after the jump. See you at the next one.

Anyone who pays close attention to our Twitter knows that our boy Ian aka @Sweatshorts was Turkey Leg Ball’s most eligible bachelor. Here he is in the flesh, and rocking his brand new “I’m Single, I Love Immaculate Infatuation, Let’s Hang Out” shirt. Ladies, he’s still available.
Lastly, big ups to a few of our blogger friends who wrote up The Ball. We’re looking at you ChekMark Eats, LoveUMadly and The Hidden City. Good stuff! If anyone else did a post on Turkey Leg Ball, send it over and we’ll add it to the recap.
