Hi everyone, I realized that there are so many guy here that really need to celebrate, yet all we do here is talk about our problems and how to solve them. Sometime, when a guy is doing well, we really need to celebrate together, lift the spirits of everyone, even those who are going through a rough time.

...So I would like to make this place for anyone who feels like they deserve a l'chaim. Or for anyone who thinks someone else deserves one, they should give them a shoutout as well.

Please note, Friday night there will be no ice cream, only cholent and drinks. 
L'chaim!

L'chaim!

Great idea! I'll start, I deserve a tremendous...just kidding! I really gotta stop getting up and toasting my incredible looks. It's getting old, people probably think I'm incredibly weird and hallucinating and actually believed my mommy when she told me I'm gorgeous ostentatious and egotistical. Ok let me get my drink from the bar. Here's a mixup. I'll have a bourbon and club soda - shaken not stirred... (Tribute to the niftar, you may be too young for this reference).

First off a great big lichaim to our Mara D'Asra, R' wilnever v'chulu. Great idea. Hachtara details TBA.

Second, Harav Starting celebrated his magic "90" yesterday!! Mazal tov! K'shem shenichnas l'90 ken....

Third, to my incredible looks....Okay! Okay! No need to throw your drinks at me!!!

Mazal Tov @starting, our hero! 

What are you guys making l'chaim on? 

I kinda stick to beer and cocktails... 

I will, G-d willing, have a (additional) beer for every celebration posted here. 

Lets keep this going!

L'chaim to all and thanks for joining me in my simcha. Special shout out to all who made it happen

I would like to also point out that many of our brothers are deserving of a big l'chaim as they reach important milestones, 1 day, 3 days, 5, 10 etc. It's those early times that are real tough and making it through that deserves celebration. Guys that are new here and pushing their limits are real heroes. 

Iy"h by everyone!! 
IT IS POSSIBLE!! THERE IS A WAY!! 

Looking forward to joining your simcha. Yes you! 
The start of 'STARting' is 'star'. Just start and you're a star!!
... and btw I really really love you! you keep me inspired!

After you have two drinks, you will see that you have alot why to celebrate... the third drink will be for pure celebration, so you definitely stick around...

I agree 100%! In fact that is really what inspired me to start this. It was people like @5770, guys like @Jack123  and new perspectives like this one and this one that really are celebratory. You guys may not realize it but it's in the thick of the fight where the battles are won. In those first few days, weeks or months, that's whet it's happening, that's when the real battle takes place.

Sooooooo, let's make a l'chaim to all you guys, one for each of course!

Ok, let me make sure everything is running smoothly.

Nice bar, cocktails and homemade beer by the keynote speaker, wine and bourbon for the caterer the famous Markz of "Grill Markz" catering. (Yes he's catering tonight, he started his career as a vintner but now....). Did you see his tiny car in the lot? It looks like an hors d'oeuvre parked next to Gevuras monsta (thanks for bringing the cows). Ok, nice sign hanging, we only serve shaken not stirred. I know I'm obsessed. Looks like Yehuda B and Lodaas are already sampling some good stuff.

Oh, the seating cards, there's a woman's side? We are lusters!!! Let's see who they invited, ok, Someone's Sister, Table 1, Someone's Aunt table 2, Someone's mother table 3...ok I guess we are safe. I wonder if Rebbetzin 7up is here...But let's get our builder, Rebuild613 to construct one heck of a mechitza.We should probably have Captain, YuYu and Oived Elokim or Testero, our Navy SEAL, (R' Guard too, if he still exists) our military dudes guarding the bulletproof mechitza, (although without a trigger....).

Whos the tech guy? Oh right we can hire i-man! With a name like that he's probably half computer. We need bouncers too..in case people get rowdy. Um...these millenials a wild bunch..not you AM you are a good one we need you as an usher. Ok, Bigmoish and Miggisbooms, will be the bouncers,I mean with a name like that he's probably from Kazakhstan and has a neck as thick as the beef on tonight's menu...I'm sure he'll be pretty scary. We also need a respectable maitre de, how about 5770? Is he available? If not I think MenachemGYE will do a fine job. Or R' Excellence. He seems super nice too. Oh wait,  I got it! Dave M! Peeeerfect! He forsure has a lovely smile but can he pull off the required snooty air of superiority? 

If you feel something can be better, please contact Looking_to_Improve. He's already on it!

Let me go check out my grilling station, maybe I should go to the mikvah first, this meat is gonna have a din of b'sar kodshim. OMG! Zedj and Jack123 are already chomping through the first batch...gotta run!
