won't you be my neighbor?

Friday, March 20, 2009

WANTED: new downtown friends. must love drinking wine, laughing at people and ourselves. is smart, has good character and likes to go out. if you live downtown, specifically in the warehouse district, bonus points will be awarded.

it's awesome having a "downtown family" as i like to call it. a group of ten or so friends who get together to do dinner, meet-up at the maproom on random nights, play wii, participate in tsunami sushi rock more times then i can count, and cook out in the summer.

these people have been my downtown family for the last three years and i really do love them, but there's a problem...

this whole time they have been in medical school, and in may they're graduating and moving on to their residencies all over the country.

duke, cornell, salt lake city, and san francisco starting their new lives as doctors and surgeons, while i'm holding down the fort in downtown cleveland. frankly, i'm going to miss them. what am i going to do without georgia peach?

but i need to toughen up - quit crying and replenish my friend bank. any takers?

i promise i'm awesome.

really awesome.

{sigh}

maybe i'll just make narm hang out with me more.

  1. I think you should start trying to take up all of Narms time.

  4. I'm still your neighbor and friend, don't forget about me!! BUT, I prefer whiskey over wine any day, is that a deal breaker?!

  6. My suggestion: Post a Casual Encounters ad on Craigslist. Mention how you're looking for people to drink, "party" and "try new things" with. I bet you'll get a lot of quality responses.

  7. Would you consider Tremont as "downtown"? I know that it's not completely the same. I used to live at 425 Lakeside, then bought a house in Tremont, but it's close! My roommate and I are always looking for more people to hang out with. Most of our friends live out in the burbs so while they love coming to our place to hang out, the distance sometimes keeps them away too. I need another Sushi fan!

  8. The answer to all questions is always More Narm.

  9. Maybe that's your signal that it's time for you to move, too. Doesn't look like anyone has claimed Chicago yet! =)

  17. Salt Lake City? People actually choose to move here to this place I call home? I didn't know.
    That person moving to SLC is going to miss you. Promise. :)

  20. well I don't live in Cleveland, but I work downtown...does that count for anything? I am pretty cool if I say so myself...and I drink wine by the bottles!!

  21. More Narm is a very scary thought.

    Too bad I am one of those said "medical students who moved away from Cleveland for residency" or I totally would be your new friend... I like food. I like wine. I like people.

  22. I don't live in Cleveland but I would totally apply for this job. Sounds like fun!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would apply, but Cleveland is soooo cold! I don't think I could deal with the lake effect snow!

  24. There are times when we totally wish we lived downtown, but then we realize that would get us into a lot of trouble ;)

    Either way, we are there quite a bit (for example, 4 times in these last 7 days) and will definitely give you a shout (text) when we're around w. 6th for a random drink or two*

    xo,
    Kelly

    ps - How is that new Irish Pub on w. 6th? It looks like a douche magnet but somewhat cool. . .
