Welcome to Silverlake Lounge, Snowballers! This is the diviest of dives in Silverlake, but this is the heart of the boulevard. By now there should be four of you! Say hello and high-five if you feel so inclined! Grab yourselves a good table, gang, and get a round of drinks to get your evening rolling here.
A good dive bar is like a good therapist. What is about the dim lights, the 70’s aesthetic, the gruff looking bartender with a heart of gold that makes us feel safe enough to share our most deepest or mundane or silliest details of our lives?
Sometimes we need some help though. Sure, sure, alcohol is great for liquid courage--but your challenge here is to play the M&M’s game to get to know one another.
Here are the directions for the M&Ms Game:
Figure out who has the earliest birthday according to month only. That person goes first, followed the second person going clockwise and so forth.
Open up your bag of M&Ms
Take out ONE M&M at a time.
Answer the question that corresponds to the color you’ve pulled.
One full round is completed after each Snowballer has pulled an M&M and answered a question.
RED M&M - Tell us something that terrifies you
ORANGE M&M - Tell us something you do well
YELLOW M&M - Tell us something about your childhood
BLUE M&M - Tell us something you learned last week or recently discovered
BROWN M&M- Tell us something you can’t live without
GREEN M&M- Tell us (or show us on your phones!) something you find hilarious
Go as many rounds as you can until you run out of M&M’s and swap out what the colors mean if you’d like to mix things up! Here are some ideas you can change to change them up!
