Can I just say how much I love my new location?
The sights and sounds never cease to amuse me.
Like when I was walking towards Wrigley field to meet up with Kelly:
Beer pong on the sidewalks while blasting N*Sync? Where was my invite, guys? I could have brought some Goose Island and Aqua to rock out to!
Actually, I couldn’t have- we’re not even going to talk about how upsetting it is that I’m no longer in possession of that cd.
Anyway- Kelly was in town for work, but luckily she still had some time to come out and play for a bit over the weekend. She’s a Yankees fan (we’re not going to judge), and guess who the Cubs were playing this weekend?
She and her boyfriend met up with me outside the stadium and we started our assault on the strip of bars along Clark Street.
But THEN… I found out another little tid bit of info about the party. And passed the info along…Kelly got excited. Being as how I talk about this cover band called Rod Tuffcurls and the Bench Press “all the time”.
I totally got showed up by a 3-year-old girl in the bustin’ moves department.
You win some, you lose some.
Unfortunately, the band only got to play for under an hour because the block party wasn’t allowed to go past 8:00 that night (Boooo!). There are supposed to be a few more over the summer after Cubs games- maybe they’ll break down and extend it next time?
A girl can dream.
The show ended on a good note- they played “All I Want for Christmas” by Mariah Carey- obviously.
After that, it was time to wander the streets once again in search of food. We were creepin’ in the windows of all the bars looking for a place that MIGHT just have a place for us to sit. Turns out Rockwood Place did. And so we feasted.All I saw was “BBQ chicken” and my choice was made. Nevermind the fact that I had white shorts on (seriously- how big of a disaster could that have been???).
Kelly and I chatted like we’ve known each other forever. Darren, after meeting me over St. Patty’s Day Weekend, was finally relaxed enough to know that Kelly’s blogger friend is not a psycho killer. Success!
So yes- I did get a weekend of fun and a little relaxation. Just what I needed.
Have a good Monday, kids. Totally don’t mean to rub it in, but it’s only a three-day work week for me. Then I’m off to the ‘Lou for the wedding of one of my best friends.
I’m really not kidding when I tell people I have the month of June planned down to the minute. It’s starting to frustrate a lot of my friends.
