I'm going to be out of town, so I've got no crazy plans. But I'm sure you do.

Whatcha up to, gang? Any particular pre-gaming plans?

Tomorrow I fly to Mexico to spend 5 days in a villa in Cabo.

No, I'm not kidding.

Tonight I will pack and (if I have time) have a tasty dinner and maybe squeeze in a swim. I should buy a hat, too, so I don't get sunburned. In Cabo.

Tonight - b-day party for a co-worker at Nick's Fish House.

Sat. - Getting a head start on packing for next weeks move to Remington. Also cat sitting.

Sun. - see Saturday, but add going to meet one of my friends from college's brand new son.

Finger Eleven is playing a free concert on the plaza tonight at 8pm. You need to be 21+ to attend but the weather outlook is great!

After work we hit the Happy Trail to Harrisburg (aka 83 - why don't people call it the JFX any longer? I'm going to try to bring that back) for the night. First family photo featuring me in the fam to be taken tomorrow. Tomorrow night we'll head back to Baltimore and plan to hit up the Angle Inn to help the guest bartenders raise money for the Linton Family, Mrs. Linton and her 2 daughters (age 4 and almost 2) lost their husband and father recently to cancer.

Heading to the incredibly un-hip State Fair in Timonium. Live racing, corn dogs, prehistoric sized turkey legs - first rate people watching. What more could you ask for?

AC, I was there with you. Thunder was a great guy.
