st. jerk day
Sunday, March 22, 2009
i hate when the weekend ends, especially a fun one.
on friday night i successfully didn't ruin a friends surprise party because of twitter. this time i waited till AFTER we yelled surprise to twitter - i learned my lesson.
my friend the jerk's birthday being close to st patrick's day, and going with the "saint" theme his birthday has become known as "st. jesse's day".
so friday night to celebrate the 29th st. jesse's day the jerk's wonderful girlfriend planned a surprise party in the maproom basement for all of his friends, and she did it from denver no less. there were even special t-shirts.
and shockingly, i think he really was genuinely surprised.
besides lots of quality time with MOB and muffin there was a raffle! but not just any raffle, a raffle with the most wonderful prize....
is that not one of the creepiest things you have ever seen? it's like a candy chucky doll!
amazingly muffin and the captain won the grand prize and got to take home the baby.
saturday night court and i started off with a bottle of my new favorite wine at d'vine wine bar before meeting up with muffin and erin at market avenue wine bar. could you tell by our tastes in venues that we were in the mood for wine?
after all the wine bars we headed to house of blues to check out the adele concert. i was lucky enough to have two free tickets to the show courtesy of Scene Magazine but when i got to will call my tickets weren't there.
concert fail. screw you Scene Magazine.
so while muffin and erin went into the sold out show court and i walked to wonder bar on east 4th to pass the time. i could go on about my experience at wonder bar but i don't feel like being negative - i'll leave it at that.
once the show was over the four of us reconvened and headed to barroom. why, i'm not sure but i think we just wanted to dance. we should have turned around when they were charging $5 at the door.
i don't do covers. and again, i don't feel like being negative so i'll stop. hey, if this place keeps bringing people from every square inch of northeast ohio to downtown cleveland i'm not going to knock it. i'm just never going to go to a bar that has a fog machine ever again.
today was university of dayton basketball day at bw3's. i was really surprised how many people were there, it was like a reunion in the back room of the bar. too bad all that support didn't help the flyers win. boo.
and that's a wrap. have a good week kids.
