let me tell you guys, blogging is NOT fun when you are tired, hungover, and all you want to do it play wii.
recently i've had a very strong desire to play guitar hero, so strong i couldn't stop randomly thinking about it during the day. specifically i really wanted to play the beatles rock band edition.
well friday the need to play hit came to a head and i went to best buy after work and bought a wii, guitar hero 5 with guitar, an extra wii remote and some other bells and whistles.
at the store i quickly realized that while i wanted to play beatles rock band i didn't have well, a band.
rock band party of one isn't as fun now is it?
so i settled on guitar hero (will buy the beatles rock band game soon) and settled in on a friday night of video game playing all by myself. it was glorious.
i'm freakishly good at guitar hero - i think it's my years of playing the piano that give me the advantage.
saturday brought an evening with the girls starting at the west side of cleveland bazaar bizarre local gift/craft/jewelery/clothing/something for everyone show.
i walked away with a hot pair of earrings from rescued and reloved and the most awesome greeting cards from oddball press that say "
after bazaar bizarre myself, muffin, babs, the klutz and bird gathered for an early dinner at momocho. i haven't been to momocho in ages and i was SO excited to go.
i had a couple of margaritas (the cucumber and the hibiscus), obviously the table got a guacamole sampler (pinapple, crab and goat cheese) and for dinner i had one of the newer menu additions the lobster taquitos. as always momocho always delivers on the food and service - a delicious cleveland gem.
from there we decided that the only cure for our food coma was more delicious cocktails.
next stop, velvet tango room where textoris and conor joined us for cleveland's best cocktails (the moscow mule is to die for), and a visit with paulius who is always so gracious to my friends and i when we visit. the place was hoppin' and the ladies in fur were out. swanky.
next stop, flying monkey. now normally this is one of my favorite bars in tremont but saturday night it was like a taping of jersey shore was underway. i literally was standing next to a half dressed girl with a bumpit in her hair and some greased guy ordering jagerbombs.
who knew where these people came from - it's like a bus picked them up from barley house and dropped them off at flying monkey. horrible.
as obnoxious as the crowd was it was excellent people watching and didn't stop us from having a couple of rounds. no we weren't finished.
next stop, bier markt and speakeasy - both bars were packed packed packed. but great drinks and people watching continued. my only issue is that there is ZERO cell service in speakeasy, it kinda makes me twitch.
next and final stop, the map room to hangout with more friends and stare at hot bartender. seriously, hot bartender you and i need to become friends. call me.
annnnnnnnnd, that's a wrap. now, back to guitar hero...
