« Bourbon Street to open tomorrow night | Main | Wye Oak's first music video »

September 29, 2008


bourbon streetNick's benefit was a slam dunk. Thanks to everybody who came out to support him. Frazier's was full and the bands tore it up.

What were you guys up to this weekend? Anybody go to Bourbon Street's (pictured) opening night? 

Also, sorry for not posting this weekend. My seven-year-old home computer started squeaking like a porch swing and stopped working, which makes it hard to post when I'm away from The Sun. I'm working on it, though.

Also also, sorry for not posting comments sooner last week. Operating our ancient blog software is like trying to drive one of these down I-95.

Hi Sam. Did you try taking your computer to Eli The Computer Guy?

I will find his phone number for you and post it.

Worked all weekend as usual. Went to the street beat fest on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes tore it up. And the street bum dance off was quite entertaining. I went to Boomers after the fest. (2nd time this week) and played some Deer Hunter. Got my butt kicked. Really like that place. Everyone should go visit!

Some pretty awesome news on the benefit, proceeds were in the 5-figure range. Pretty effing amazing.

Also the guy who owns? manages? Boomers came by our kickball game the week before last and gave out huge stacks of FREE BEER tickets. The Red Queen struggle for bar patrons continues.


Eli's phone number is 410-685-2808. He is in Baltimore.

I hope he can fix it.


Is Eli the Computer Guy just a friend, or does he actually do repair work professionally, as I need to get my comp. looked at by someone other than the schlubs at Best Buy.


I'd like to be friends with him!!! lol

He is a professional and he has fixed my comp a few times. He is very nice!!!

Sorry about your computer :(

I'll second Sue's recommedation for Eli the Computer Guy. They're on Charles Street and helped me out after the morons at Geek Squad wanted like a million dollars.

Also, thanks to everyone for helping out with my UMD game dilemma that was actually not a dilemma at all, haha. I realized about 10 minutes into game time that I had looked at the ESPN TV schedule, not the local schedule and flipped on WJZ. DUH. What a game, though! So glad I caught it!
