music snob party + DMB

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

This past Saturday night CK and I hosted an iPod Battle Royale party at my townhouse where CK and some of his fellow music snobs were required to bring a 30 minute playlist to share. 

We had such a great evening, with great friends and while I didn't end up making a playlist I did make a mean pork butt...

I'm a mix-master in the kitchen and CK is a mix-master with the tunes - we're a good pair.
8 lbs of pure pork buttocks.

I turned that pork butt into the most glorious pulled pork I've ever made, granted this was the first time I ever made pulled pork, but that's beside the point. THIS RECIPE KICKS PORK BUTT - make it now - then make this cilantro jalapeno coleslaw and pile it onto of the pulled pork. 

I also made this strawberry spinach salad, this potato salad with lemon and herbs and a family recipe pineapple cake with cream cheese icing.

I really like to cook, guys.

Backyard fun + backyard fun on an angle + Jesse and Muffin being adorable + #whatdeerywore
The music theme continued on Sunday with a trip to Blossom Music Center to take in a Dave Matthews Band show. A great group of friends including CK, MOB, Beaver, Jen and Stephen tailgated for the afternoon in the lot and danced our faces off at the DMB show.

Nice view from the Dave show - the band blew me away for the record, the best they've sounded in years, so polished, so DMB grown up.

Beaver, MOB and CK tailgating + MOB and Beaver Booooooooooooooping + Stephen and Jen being adorable

Good weekend, good friends, good music.

I can get used to this life.

Happy Wednesday, kids.

  7. I love DMB, but I've gotta be honest, I haven't seen them in concert since before they made it big. I grew up in the DC area and I'd often visit my friends who were attending UVA. I gonna see them this year hopefully tickets prices won't be too high and some of you . They were awesome back then, I'd imagine they are even more so today.

    Those pics are great! Thanks for sharing.
