Last night I attended the Most Interesting Academy party, which was hosted by Dos Equis. It was a place to learn and try awesome things in hopes of making us “more interesting.” The only downside was the fact that the actual guy from the Dos Equis commercials was not there. Damn it.
The event was completely FREE! Free beer, free food, and free transportation. Nothing beat’s that. I probably slugged down about 15 beers in the 4 hours I was there, plus a half dozen sliders and a grasshopper (read below).
What made the party even more amazing was where it took place…
The Falkenstein Castle
The party took place at the Falkenstein Castle, which is located in Burnet, Texas. It’s a castle that’s located in the middle of nowhere. It’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be judging from some of the pictures.
Here’s a few pictures taken outside of the castle:
Pretty cool looking huh? I must say it was the first time I ever attended a party at a castle. The inside was also pretty cool looking. Here’s a picture of “The Most Interesting Man in the World” hanging up inside the castle:
I totally want that picture for my living room. It was like 6 feet tall and would take up the whole wall.
So what was there to do at the party? The answer was a whole bunch of random stuff. Eating and drinking were the main events of course. But they also had a wind tunnel, a live band, and a salon to get your hair styled and cut.
Looks pretty normal right? Let’s take a closer look:
Yep those are bugs. Not sure what kind but they had all sorts of different ones. My girlfriend tried the grasshopper tacos as well as a scorpion. I settled on eating a grasshopper with an Oreo. It was actually pretty good.
I’m More Interesting Now
Overall, the party was a fun event. I had fun trying some new stuff and drinking free beer. I hope to find more free parties like this because it sure feels nice knowing you spent absolutely nothing.
