I Won a Bear, Two Monkeys, and a Gerbil!
But it turned out they were all fake!
Still, it was a blast getting to play all the kooky, crazy games at Amanda Lepore's Big Top party on the Carnival floor of Bowlmor Wednesday night.
Hosts Kenny Kenny and Joey Israel welcomed me to the game playing area, so I stuck with the easiest challenge -- throwing orb-like sacks at clown dolls and knocking them over as if going after Republicans.
I ended up with my bony arms full of so many plush toys my Christmas shopping is already complete!
And the night is a big winner in other ways. The carnival decor meshes perfectly with the colorful crowd and extreme performances, making for the best time to be had since I was a real kid at a real carnival.
