I have a monster amount of photos from the weekend to share again. Posting them would be much easier if I had internet at home, but, alas, poor girls don’t deserve internet in their homes. Maybe in the future…
Anyway, so on Friday night Plastic Chord was playing at the Hexagon Bar. I met Ellie at Block E in downtown and we bussed to South Minneapolis together. She very much enjoyed their music and told me that she was their newest groupie, so I felt very proud of myself for having such wonderfully and musically talented friends. Rebecca was also wearing one of her creations as a clothing design major at the University of Minnesota, so she was extra impressive. Musical, stylish and able to sew!
And I took a little video at the end of the performance:
Next to play was It from Bit and in their audience was a fellow whose karaoke stage name at Legend’s was “LL Cool J.” I engaged him in some awkward conversation and then ran away.
On Saturday after a long, luxurious brunch with Kristi and Jen at the Spring Street Tavern, I tagged along with Kristi and Jared to see horses racing at Canterbury Park in Shakopee. I didn’t win big, but I didn’t bet big, either. I’m more educated for the next time I attend.
The striped fellow in the foreground of this picture said that we weren’t allowed to pay admission and instead handed us three free admission passes. He allowed us to have more money to spend on beer and betting! So that’s a nice little bonus.
And here are a few frames from one of the races that I didn’t win:
After the races, Jared’s friends were going to dinner in Mahtomedi. I wanted to go out to dinner, so we drove to Mahtomedi, too. I took a nap in the backseat because that was a very long drive and I had been drinking much beer. Sleepy sleepy time. Eventually we were there, Jared gave us a tour of his hometown then we joined his friends at Donatelli’s. It was slow, but my manicotti was delicious!
On Sunday I had a little brunch at the Calhoun Grill with Karyn, Bryan, Barry and Ali, afterwards visiting Whole Foods with Karyn and Bryan. I spent the remainder of the day doing laundry and sleeping, except for that hour in the afternoon when I was so sick of my apartment that I decided to visit Kowalski’s for the groceries that I didn’t think about buying that morning. Luckily, Jen visited me after that and we watched a movie. It’s exhausting to be bored on a Sunday because the next day is a work day and Sundays should really be enjoyed/taken advantage of… Oh, well.
Time for lunch.
