so i just walked in the door from the map room and i can honestly say that cleveland has officially been taken over by the ast dew tour that's in town this weekend.
talk about some skater hotties. day-um.
you will find me wandering around downtown this weekend looking for my sk8ter boi. oh wait, i'll be in p-burgh, guess i'll just have to go out again tomorrow night.
so the downtown cleveland crew is pretty standard on a wednesday - you know who the neighborhood people are. but tonight there were packs of vans wearing, flat hat sporting and tattoo rockin' boys out and about.
i was enthralled by an asian skater dude with no shirt on gliding down the middle of w 9th street over and over and over again. i thought it was cool, everyone else - not so much. damn my yuppie friends.
so the whole reason for going out tonight was that a lot of my med school friends are going or are already gone on away rotations for the summer and early fall. my neighbor and partner in crime georgia peach is even leaving!
what am i going to do? who am i going to hang out with? all my downtown friends are leaving!!
but while the med school kids are only leaving temporarily my dear friend captain joe p tone is leaving indefinitely to take a position at an alt weekly in denver.
tuesday night we had a going away party for captain joe at prosperity social club in tremont. (btw, that place is friggin awesome! GREAT patio and it was surprisingly busy!)
it was sad saying bye to captain joe because we have all had so many good times together but i wish him nothing but luck and happiness!
of course bird and i got him a cleveland's a plum t-shirt as a going away present - he can't forget cleveland!!!!
but on a happy note we are getting a group together to go visit him in denver in december for his 30th birthday! which i am beyond excited for because i have never been there - awesomeness.
so even though a lot of my friends are going to be MIA for the next couple of months i'm lucky enough to have my weekends full of events and trips (p-burgh, aruba, chicago)
guess i'm just looking for week night friends ; )
