Catalina Wine Mixer…?

adminNews57 Comments


Ido Portal is in the house! Still a few spots left for this weekend’s intensive training.

Lately, there have been a lot of questions regarding the Catalina Wine Mixer happening in 3 days. It’s on the events board at the gym and I suspect it is a member-driven initiative to get people together and build community. However, some sources tell me it is a boys night out to celebrate the most prestigious helicopter leasing day of the year. Hopefully that’s not entirely true because there are ladies curious about helicopter rides as well. Who’s running this thing? When and where are we meeting for the first toast? What is it?

“A. Power Snatch: 70%x1x3 sets; 75%x1x3 sets; 80%x1x3 sets: 9 sets x 1 rep; 1 min b/t sets. Then, off the clock, work up to a heavy single for the day. Only count lifts done with good technique!
Teams of 5:
Airdyne 300 cals, switch riders in order every 12 cals.”


“1-2 rounds:
Wtd OH Squat stretch x 10 + 10 sec (45/33)
Wtd Prone Pass-thrus x 10”

  1. Some people check their affiliate web site constantly, in a desperate attempt to learn what the work-out is.

    Oh no, we check the web site so that we know when we can start commenting anew.

    The Catalina Wine Mixer will be a major topic of tonight’s Mayhem class.

    Since it’s teams of five, we will most likely have nine teams during that class.

  2. I have to lease 85 choppers to make my nut for the year. At the f*cling Catalina Wine Mixer! Boom.

  3. The Catalina Wine Mixer…
    It means I’m gonna be on your ASS.
    You wake up in the middle of the night, someone’s laying next to you… spoonin’ with ya… chances are it’s gonna be me.

  4. I just want to be sure we will have the early Billy Joel cover band there. None of that new shit.

  5. … it was in international waters so they couldn’t prosecute him, but I saw it.

  6. i was reading catalina wine mixer and i knew that i’ve heard it before, just not sure where…then it came to me.

    This is a house of learnen doctors.
    Your not a doctor. Your a big fat curly headed f*ck.
    Oh yeah.
    I’m a curly headed f*ck?
    Yeah. You better not go to sleep, soon as your eyes shut I’m gonna punch you square in the face.
    I hope you stay still when you sleep, becasue I’m putting a rat trap between your legs.
    I’m gonna take a pillow case, and fill it with bars of soap and beat the shit out of you.
    I want you outta my f*cking house.

  8. I am the VP of the biggest executive helicopter leasing company on the western seaboard. I haven’t had a carb since 2004. Check these out.
    [Points to ab muscles]

  9. Jake, you have the voice of an angel. Your voice is like a combination of Fergie and Jesus.

  10. “Deadliest Catch” without the crabs.
    We’re almost out of gas, so call the A-rabs.

  11. I don’t know what it is about your face, Travis, but I just wanna deliver one of these right in your suck hole.

  12. 19 reserved for the 6:30 mayhem? good lord!

    Maybe it’s time to look for a new home, who needs to be at work at 4:30 anyway?

  13. I just looked up Catalina Wine Mixer on Urban Dictionary. If this is a “guys only” night, I want a video. Seriously.

  14. FYI…this is the message you get when you post comments to quickly.

    “You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down.”

  15. Redwood Saplings do not count towards to the class limit.

    So that accounts for three people.

    Is John McLain going to Die Harder with us, tonight?

  16. Jake,

    The way I see it you have two options here: you can Live Free or Die Hard. The choice is yours buddy. But we all know which way you’ll go.

  17. @Mindy, I’d be willing to bet Brad probably has a story about #3.

    “Oh yeah, I know/arrested/heard of this guy…”

  18. You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin’. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can’t remember your last name. Your kids don’t want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.

  19. Some people who do these activities may also confuse being nauseous with being elite.

  20. I love that one of the keywords is Scientology.

    Also, Mike, I was born as an Internet master.

    Because I’m brown.

    Finally, the over-under on the number of words in Madoc’s comment: 250.

  21. Madoc’s comment will be in at least three parts.

    Part 1: Workout results
    Part 2: a story tangentially related to a helicopter
    Part 3: something about food

  22. Then he would probably be nauseous. Or elite. Apparently, it’s the same thing.

  23. Who are you calling a lame frigid girl? I eat boys like you for breakfast!

  24. The best part of the now 53 comments is that only one of them has to do with the workout.

  25. It’s not a wine party, it’s a mixer, and oh yeah, “connoisseur” has two Ns. I’m just saying.

  26. What the hell people? There are no lame frigid girls at Crossfit Portland, just ones that can kick all kinds of ass (oh and a pregnant one who just stays home). If you are really that bent out of shape about girls day- I suggest you get over it. Like any of you boys want to come to girls day anyways…if you did, Des would eat you and I would sit on you with all my new found weight.
    Total words in this post: about 251
