guinnessSorry I haven't posted about my weekend sooner. I would have, but the blog-posting software was busted all morning.

So how was your weekend? Did you see the Ravens bash the Bengals? What gloriousness.

Because of cable TV malfunctions, I watched the action at Idle Hour.

Friday night I went to Arlington, Va., for my buddy Evan's birthday. A Guinness at Ri Ra Irish Pub (a chain) was $5.50. That ain't bad.

Its bartenders were on point, too. I never waited long for a beer.

visited some friends in new york. got the BEST falafel sandwich for $2.50 but paid $12 for drinks mostly everywhere. . . such disparity! had a great time, despite the saturday wash out!

I'm still recovering from possibly one of the b-u-s-i-e-s-t Purple Patios ever. Wow. How do people drink so much at 8 am? It was insanity. That and lack of sleep consumed my weekend.

Crabs at Dockside Friday night - and they were the best crabs I've had all season. FATTIES. Then went to the Parrot for a few.
Saturday, wine tasting party.
Sunday, started to dream of a victorious season - or at least a season better than last year - thanks to Joe Flacco. How hot was it at the game? I wish there was no smoking out in the concession area, too.
