  • 00:38 @mingna we all could choose how to sort our twitter friends into categories. It's a way of tagging people with keywords... #
  • 00:39 @mingna you might have been tagged with actor or stargate or e.r. or disney princesses or other keywords that people feel describe you. #
  • 00:40 @mingna when you look at the lists you are on the @_insertnamehere_ is the person who created it and the phrase afterwards is list itself. #
  • 00:42 @mingna people can choose to follow whole lists OR just see who else has been grouped with you in that list... #
  • 00:43 @mingna for instance, some of the stargate lists may not just be the actors, but other creators and even vocal fans of the show...! #
  • 00:43 @rickybrigante ride "It's a Small World". #
  • 11:07 RT: @mrdankelly: Despite what you think, if you vote against gay marriage, you're not a person following your conscience. You're a bigot. #
  • 11:53 @ranggrol Whoopi DESERVES to be on the View FOREVER after that "it wasn't 'RAPE rape'" comment... #
  • 12:51 www.mininova.org/tor/2890161 - Twilight Zone 1985 season 1 - includes "Button Button" (see that instead of "The Box" with C. Diaz). #

What is the Adventurer's Club?

The Adventurer's Club was a nightclub on Pleasure Island at Walt Disney World.

It was an interactive experience. The exterior looked like an Egyptian Tomb mixed with a Spanish Villa

Inside, you entered a room that was a mezzanine with a circular balcony that looked into the floor beneath. The room was filled with "Artifacts" that had been brought back by the various members of the club over the years. There were a lot from various ancient (or fictitious versions of ancient) civilizations: the Incas, the Mayans, the Egyptians, various African tribes, Feudal Japan, etc. Stuffed animals, statuary, various animal prints everywhere. As you reach the stairwell in the back, you descend into the salon...

In the salon, you find: the center of the room is dominated by the Zeus statue (which holds a fishing rod, the cast members/club members refer to him as "the God with Rod"). There is a circular sofa that surrounds it. Up on the walls are many more artifacts, including a stuffed bust of a "Yakoose" (a combination Yak and Moose). There are comfy chairs around and a small bar (if you sit on one of the barstools, don't be surprised if it occasionally rises and falls). On the wall opposite the stairs, above an archway that leads to the hallway where the bathrooms are located, is the carved face known as Babylonia. On the other side of that same wall (to the right), you might see a little "boxed seat" (similar to the type that Waldorf and Statler sit in) with a red velvet curtain. Behind that is where Colonel Critchlow Suchbench resides.

There are four more exits from this room: one leads to the Mask Room, lined with comfy couches and ottomans and the entire wall covered in decorative masks from various cultures. Another is the Treasure Room, with more comfy couches and ottomans and various display cases including a quite large one at the far end of the room. Third, is an entrance to the basement, which is never seen (cast members only) and the fourth and final leads to the library.

The library is where the majority of the shows take place. There is another, larger bar in here and well as seating and tables for the audience and a nice sized stage. Up/Left on the stage is a piano which is played by an otherwise unseen ghost known as "Fingers".

The club is populated by various club members. Pamelia is our club president, Graves the butler, aviator Hathaway Brown is the club's resident ladies man, Samantha Sterling has just returned from a jungle expedition, etc. They interact with one another and with the guests. Throughout the night, in addition to various shows that take place in the Mask Room/Treasure Room/Library, in the salon Babylonia and Colonel Critchlow Suchbench come to life and entertain the guests.

Also about three times during the night there are "new member induction ceremonies" where the people present are taught the club creed, the club song and the club handshake.

In the library, there's a welcoming ceremony to open the night, a Balderdash competition (for telling the biggest story), a radio-thon featuring a live performance of the current episode of "Tales of the Adventurer's Club" (sponsored by breakfast cereal "Jinkies"), a cabaret hosted by either Samantha, Pamelia or the Maid (the maid is the only character that is a variable as each of the maid's has an individual name) and finally the Grand Hoopla where each of the members of the club have a big singalong to end the night...

I loved it because even with some of the structured stuff (the library shows), there was room for the actors to improvise (sometimes simply gently ribbing the guests that participate with them in the shows...which may turn into running gags if those guests stay/return). The actors switched roles, too, so it was interesting to see how one man who might have been Emil Bleehall one night might interpret Graves the next. With the audience participation, I likened it to being a Rocky Horror like experience.

There were also great drinks there...the signature drink (named for the club salutary expression "Kungaloosh!") was marvelous. It was sort of a strawberry daiquiri with blackberry brandy and orange juice added to the mix (and whipped cream, too)...yum.

Back Before Nancy Regan Ruined It.
Ahhhh. It sounds just like some of the bars in Boy's Town I used to go underage drinking at. There has to be some kinky sex in that place. Did you find any rooms with that? And what about the food? Was there any themed food? When I was a kid my mom took me to the Pirates of the Carribean restaurant that overlooks the swamp at the beginning of the ride. I always wanted there to be a great bar/club there.

This place sounds like the closest the non-priveledged will ever get to joining Skull & Bones.
