i didn't even want to give roverfest a mention on my blog because it was so gross. but it was that disgusting that i have to elaborate.
when i got home from work on friday i knew it was going to be a rowdy one in the warehouse district from the mass amount of people wandering around already at 5pm.
there were two prominent type of people visiting my neighborhood. full-out trashballs walking around in wife beaters and jean shorts (jorts) - or there were 20-22 year old frat boys with lots product in their hair, uber tan with popped collars.
i didn't think the second type of douchebag was still around, yeah, i was wrong.
so i maintained my original plan of having a cookout at georgia peach's and nameless' apartment with my friends jewfro blue, alymcjew, slappe (minus the s) and tj. we had great dinner and drinks then decided around 10 to walked over to roverfest.
walking out of our apartment was MAYHEM. for real this place was crazy. we walked down lakeside and came to roverfest from the divebar side. there were girls wandering around in bikinis and a massive stage set up on w 6th where they were having a calendar girl search competition. i was on pins and needles to see which stripper was going to win. NOT.
the streets were so packed you couldn't move. people were grabbing at my purse (no one touches the chloe) and i'm like can we get the hell out of here?!? everyone agreed.
i managed to snap a couple pictures in my short visit to roverfest to try to convey what this fest was really like. i will say though that if i had a seat and steady vodka coming my way it would have been the best people watching ever - but the picture on the right pretty much sums up the attendees of roverfest...
matchy matchy is all the rage i guess - so are patent leather lime green boots..
considering we still wanted to go out we headed to tremont to get safely out of the roverfest net. cocktails at tremont taphouse were perfect, lots of apple cider shots. it's always a good time there.
so saturday was THE BEST COUCH DAY EVER.
i haven't spent so much time fondling the remote control in ages. it was the perfect tv day. i needed it.
as for today i just got home from having a relaxing boat day with my friend amanda. her and her husband have a boat docked at the lakeside yacht club and i went and met her. we hung out at the pool and on the boat till the weather forced us in to the club for a late lunch. no complaints on my end, it was so nice of her to invite me!
although i better get another invite this summer when we can actually take the boat out ; )
and if i haven't done enough this weekend i've right now got to get ready for dinner with my mom and two of our good family friends at the flying fig in ohio city. i haven't been there in months i'm so excited!
hope everyone had a great weekend, tomorrow i'm going to be posting about a little experiment i am going to partake in for the next 30 days....
till tomorrow : )
