i got rid of the awful tag I had at work being, "the only guy in the office not to see Batman yet."

Spent most of the night at Don't Know. Had my 1st mojito at Little Havana's. Not a bad drink, a little to minty tho.

Did Drew from Greektown have his computer stolen? Get fired? How did he not post first?

Went to the Hudson's Street Stackhouse this weekend. Beer selection does rival Mahaffey's. No food though, the bar manager said maybe in the next weeks weeks.

I did go see the Black Crowes at Wolfe Trap last night. Not a huge BC fan but I am however a HUGE fan of Wolf Trap. You can bring A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G in there with the exception of a keg. So we enjoyed the beautiful night under the stars with a 4 piece Chicken Box and a vat of Electric Lemonade (citrus vodka and lemonade). The sound was awesome. Grace Potter opened up. Love me some Grace. Best part was there were never any lines. No bathroom lines, concession lines or even a line to leave. I wanna go see a show there every night!

Nothing. Glorious nothing.

(By which I mean gym, grilling, laundry, touring a new Baltimore inhabitant around the city, and two hours on Sunday lounging by the pool and reading. You should see me on a weekend I do something.)

Friday - went to see Single Carrot's production of Richard III at Loud of Fun (good stuff), then went to the depot for some 80's dancing...yeah new order.

Saturday - Walked around the city with my buddy and got beers at places we had never been: The Drinkery, milton's grill, Tugs, Pisces, and The intercontinental hotel bar...the later two were a bit pricey (expectedly so, since they are nice hotel bars) but the service was great and we had a never ending supply of pub mix....yeah wasabi peas. Saturday night went to ottobar to see Earlimart. pretty good.

Sunday - went up to the county for a house warming BBQ. As my friend asked "what is all that green mossy looking stuff?" oh...right...grass.

and here's to low humidity this weekend.

I moved to Mt Vernon from Fells Point. Can't wait to explore the new hood.

It took us FOREVER to get to Ocean City on Friday. I think the back way was a mistake. So, it was closer to 6 before I had the Pain in De ___ in my hand at Seacrets, but oh it was marvelous. Then we hit Mackey's, the food was bobo but really, who cares when you're at a beach bar. Saturday we beached it and hung at the house in the evening with the posse playing Taboo and Beer Pong. I made a respectable showing at both, but, alas, was victorious in neither. Thank you, Dogfish 60 Minute IPA.

I checked out the new club Palma on Friday night! It was fun...but I am not sure how long it will last in Baltimore. Most of the people were in the VIP sections were it is bottle service only! If my girlfriends and I didn't have $500 of free bottle service...I doubt we would of stayed long since a bottle of kettle was $225. Also -- guys there were lots of girls there --so men are in demand!
The rest of the weekend...I worked at the Hippo!

i took a jog to the new-er farmer's market in harbor east on saturday morning. i was surprised at how tiny it was. the vendors were pleasant (woo, atwater's bakery!) but there wasn't great variety and certainly no bargains to be found. saturday mornings at waverly still reign tops in my mind.

Patchen grilling = fire hazard.
