It’s a Thug Story

T-Swizzle is upping her game, putting her neck to neck with Beyonce in the hunt for my affection.  Your move B, better make it a good one!

The past few days a few interesting things have happened to me but I either haven’t had a chance to write about them or I didn’t feel as though they warranted a post of their own.  Enjoy:

Let’s Talk About Sweat, Baby

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

The 2009 Beer Bourbon and BBQ Festival has come and gone and I am happy to report that the event was success.  Out of the 32 people in our attending group, everyone made it back alive and, as far as I know, with their half pint glass intact (many of which have been “Maker’s Marked” with red wax).   If you recall, in the previous post I made  a plea to the Weather God (Bob Ryan) to improve on the forecast of 92 degrees and thunderstorms.  Unfortunately, only half of my wish was granted.

You see, on this particular Saturday afternoon, the temperatures reached the 89 degree mark but there were no thunderstorms.  Instead, we were greeted with 93% (yes, NINETY THREE PERCENT) humidity*.  So, to paraphrase a trio of ladies from Queens, let’s talk about sweat, baby!

On Saturday, along with 31 of my closest friends, I will heading to the Maryland Waterfront to experience the Beer, Bourbon and BBQ Festival (we have rented a party bus for the event, so to all my family members reading this, do not worry, no one will be driving).  Being a huge fan of festivals of any kind, I have been to a number of “fests” in my time.  I thought it might fun to take a look back at a few of the more memorable festivals I have attended in my life on the blog.  Enjoy!


Eddie Vedder is Amazing; News at 11…

I returned home from the Eddie Vedder concert I spoke of on Monday at a loss for words.  I wanted to post a review of the show but I just couldn’t bring myself to put my feelings into words.  I still don’t think I can.  But I’ll try.

Right off the bat I am going to state that if you want a review of the show, you aren’t going to find it here.  I would suggest you click here to get a more formal review.  What you are going to find here are my feelings towards the show.

Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of the greatest concert I’ve ever been to, and perhaps the greatest concert I will ever attend.  My friend Mark and I traveled to Columbia, South Carolina to see my favorite band, Pearl Jam, and by the end of the night, the two of us had shared a bottle of wine with Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder.  How did this happen?  The story is one filled with awesomeness and should be used as Exhibit A in the argument of why Pearl Jam is the most fan-friendly band around.

Conan and Andy know that Pearl Jam is the best band on the planet!

I know what you are thinking:

Two posts in a day?!?!

My friend Liz just sent me this video that I felt deserved being posted on the page.  For those who live in Georgia or elsewhere and wondered exactly where I moved, here is a video giving you a glimpse of my gangsta hood:

Last night I went with my friend Cody to McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon.  This bar holds a special place in my heart, which I will explain momentarily, and, despite being disliked by almost everyone over the age of 22, I find it to be one of the more interesting bars that I have ever been to.  Being that it was the first time I had visited the DC version of McFadden’s, I had high hopes for last night.  Thankfully, it didn’t disappoint.
