Memorial Day Weekend Recap

This weekend was one of the better weekends I've had in a while, especially in the 6 months that I've been unemployed. 

Friday I went out to Brooklyn to hang out at Nebs' place and catch the Yanks Phils game. It's really nice to have the luxury of a backyard, but I guess that's Brooklyn for ya. Unfortunately the Yanks couldn't pull out a win but it was definitely a good time. Nebs got me on a Bruce Springsteen kick, I really love movies and music from the 70's. I really appreciate the unpolished effects that they seem to have, compared to music and movies over the past 10-15 years. Not to mention that alot of the music that was made because the artists loved to make music and not because the labels were pushing them to put out album after album.

Saturday I went out to Fabrices for Paintball and a BBQ. Second time paintballing in a week and it really is a lot of fun. I guess the fact that I haven't really been shot up too many times definitely helps.

Sunday was a hangin out in Boken and yet another BBQ at Dara's, props to Dara for throwing together quite the spread of middle eastern fair.

Monday we hit up an awesome Mexican place called Charittos and then hung around the pool and watched the Cuse v Cornell lax game. What a game, I didn't catch the whole game but I did catch the last 4 minutes where Cuse' went on to score 3 goals to tie the game. The last goal coming with 4 seconds left. Widhalm and Day were ecstatic as they are Syracuse Alumni and I was pretty pumped since I have adopted them as one my college teams since Sarah graduated from there. Cuse then went on to win the game a minute into OT to complete the comeback.

Monday night I was persuaded to meet a couple of the guys and have some beers at Dukes, I was pretty exhausted but I was lured with the idea of a trivia night which wound up being cancelled. During any Yankee or Met game they have $1 beers or $4 pitchers which is awesome. We broke into quite a few songs and just had an awesome night overall.

I'm really looking forward to the Barca - Man Utd. Champions League final tomorrow.
