SlashThis was a hit last week. But I don't know if you guys were able to coordinate anything.

Ideally, Whatchagonnadothisweekend should be a springboard into (gasp!) a night of Midnight Sun mingling.

So share your plans with me. Mine are as follows: 24 hours spent covering both days of the Virgin Mobile Festival.

You can read about it on our shiny new Virgin Fest blog

I am going to wait impatiently for the winners of worse ran bar or the bar that people love to hate....

Tonight, I am finally getting around to seeing the new Indy movie.

Sat, Crab Feast in Bel Air and then back to Baltimore for a small pub crawl.

Sunday, taking it easy.

Look for free tickets to Virgin Fest.

it's people watching weekend in the harbor. i need to see how ridiculous some people actually are.

if you want to do some really spectacular people watching head down to the convention center this weekend.


Tonight: Happy hour, then cookout with some friends

Sat/Sun: Virgin Festival, possibly watching the UFC PPV on Saturday night.

Oh, how I love the ComCon! Lunchtime is never so glorious as the weekend of ComCon.

This weekend is our softball tourney, so if we win on Saturday, we play all day, both days, at Carroll Park. After our games on Saturday we'll head to Little Havana as a team to celebrate the end of the season. Tonight, going to dinner for my sister's birthday. I do not plan to consider my day of athletic endurance vis a vis this evening's wine consumption. I plan to catch some Olympics this weekend, too.

friday nite, cigar & scotch with season 3 of "The Wild Wild West" (the series not the inane movie)
saturday, car shopping (probably in baltimore somewhere, remember, i'm from the eastern shore, we don't have cars over here)......I HATE CAR SHOPPING!!!!!!!
then sunday i get to back up an entire computer software setup, reformat a laptop hard drive and put all the stuff back..... I HATE LAPTOPS!!!!

other than that, business as usual.

Going to go to No Idea, then Don't Know... Try to get the bartenders to give me as many free drinks and shots as possible. Then I am going to walk out on my tab and end up at J&P Carryout. Kabbitz a little with Pete and my boo with one tooth. Then I will pass out on my sofa fully clothed. Wash, Rinse, Repeat Saturday night.

evan, that's exactly what i meant. i walked through the harbor the past couple days and it was good people watching then with the attendees already arriving. this weekend is going to be the jackpot though.

i wonder if the females make use of their costumes during bedroom activities? my imagination says yes.

Watching Drew from Greektown getting DJ Jazzy Jeff'd out of the pub crawl, like the gump that he is

Gym, then a fund raising HH tonight at Mex. Company softball tourney tomorrow morning and then Vfest in time for Cat Power on the North Stage.
Sunday: Gym in the morning, try to sneak into the Vfest for BRMC @ noon, then a road trip to Charles county in the afternoon.

Working Friday night.

Since I never made it over to the other side of the harbor last Saturday. I'm going to see Will Hill this week at Waterfront.

Sunday, Virginfest if I can score some cheap (free) tickets.

Jazzy Jeff? Smith, it is the 2000s you know?

I'm having 3 parties to celebrate my 30th birthday!

Friday I worked. I tried an experiment while there...I didn't drink. And I was the worst bartender EVER. We won't be doing that again. Today I will sacrifice my afternoon at the pool in order to pack for the beach. Then it's off to work I go. After work Im heading to the beach (as is most of the staff because we are closed on Tuesday) were I will bask in the sun and drink copious amounts of alcohol. I also will be purchasing David Byrne tickets at some point this weekend. I hope everyone has fun at V-Fest.
