So we’ve had a bit of a slow weekend. Kate’s had a little touch of a cold (no reason for concern she’s already feeling much better). With that said though we’ve taken things pretty easy. One issue we have been forced to face (when I say we I mean Kate) is the affinity that buttFUZZ has for Kate’s hair. Whenever Kate is trying to sleep the cat tries to eat her hair and it’s odd at best.
In honor of the new season of Mad Men premiering on AMC on Sunday I thought I’d post this video. if only I had this much time on my hands…… Enjoy!
If your reading this then you some how survived St. Patrick’s Day. For that I congratulate you. I find St. Patrick’s Day to be my most feared holiday. We encourage the public to all go out and get drunk together. This year being in Columbus was a whole other level. These people drive!!!!! Don’t get me wrong I was with John Diehl so we were driving safely, but it’s the meat heads I’m worried about. John and I stopped in at this party advertised on the radio. This place called Flannigans. Oh the humanity!!!! All the dudes where either really fat and nerdy or type A meat heads and scary. The girls were a similar ratio of fat and unfortunate or hot and busted. Needles to say John and I were incredibly uncomfortable there. Luckily we avoided the cover charge but sneaking in the back band entrance purely by mistake. The rest of the night was lovely eating Danoto’s pizza and drinking Great Lakes beer at John’s apartment.
Truthfully the real reason for my visit was to visit John Diehl and my cousin Krissy and family. I had business in Cincinnati on Thursday and Friday so it was a perfect opportunity to spend the weekend in Ohio to visit some folks I rarely see. Krissy had a baby earlier this year and as often as I get to Ohio I was worried Ethan would be in his early 20’s before I got to hang out. The good news is that Mom and Baby are doing great. Krissy seems to be handling motherhood like a champ and little Ethan couldn’t look more comfortable in his surroundings. I know what your thinking “where are all the pictures of Paul holding the baby!” I prefer to leave that to the capable parents. Cousin Paul brings over some toys and has a beer. No baby holding its just better for everyone that way. As a special treat John and I got to take Krissy out for a burrito giving mom a little hang out time with her favorite cousins. It was just like old time except we are all much older now.
With that said I think it was an incredibly successful trip. Just a few other notes. I got to have lunch with my old pal Rusty on Friday which was great! He’s a relatively new parent as well and seems to be doing great. Lastly one major highlight was John taking me to his super secret baseball club called the Green Diamond in Cincinnati. It’s a private baseball museum he belongs to that is simply incredible. They have old baseball players come and speak every month and I wish I could explain it better but I can’t so just know its amazing and enjoy the pictures posted below.
Wow what a trip!!!!
I was on my way to work this morning and saw this cool street art just down from the Letterman Studio. I have no idea what it is but it’s a new favorite. This kind of stuff is one of the hidden treasures of New York (or any big city) that make it worth living here. What do you think should I make a Turbo street art posters? Take the Stick’nTweet to the next level. I’m feeling inspired by it.
Let me fill you in on the weekend. The big event was the Spring Fling party at the Woolworth Building. It took place on the ground floor in this bar area called the Wooly. It was a party Megan knew about and brought us along. It was pretty under cover stuff. The thing with parties like that is there are a ton of people and the DJ is usually a massive douche bag, this was no exception. It was fun though, there was plenty of people watching to be had as it was a formal party. That’s right I got to don my blue velvet sports jacket again and of course it was a hit!!! It was tough for Kate and Megan to compete with that glorious blue velvet but the both looked lovely as always. All in all it was a great time and I will certainly be down for another of those Wooly parties. I included the video invite for the party. I just watched it and it seemed kinda stupid. I wouldn’t bother if I was you just posted it for posterity.
Sunday Kate and I took it easy and went into the city to get new headphones and lunch. We visited The Standard Grill which is another people watching experience in its own right. The kind of folks that hang out at the Standard Hotel are seemingly very rich and very foreign. The Grill is a crazy small space off the main restaurant and it’s extremely busy. The good part is the street art in that part of town along with the awesome new Supreme posters up in the are sporting Kate Moss.
Lastly on the way home on the subway after lunch saw this guy bringing back the Play haircut from Kid N Play. It was amazing so I tried to snap a picture when he wasn’t looking.
