That night, I met up with a friend after work, we got a couple drinks and headed to see MEN !!! It was so much fun. They are a queer, dancey, electro band headed by JD Samson of Le Tigre (another favorite band.) I danced and drank more and yelled stuff and JD even responded to me once! Ah, I geeked out. What a blast.
Here is a photo from the night that my friend Tara took on her phone (she's also a really talented photographer IRL):
After the show ended (like, super early! like, 10:19!) we walked around and hit up one more place, Lillie's, an Irish/Victorian bar! It was filled with eerily trendy people doing the real Friday-night thing, but it was beautiful inside with stained glass and porcelain stuff and hardwood floors and wallpaper, so we got one drink and skedaddled. I'd love to return on an off-night.
After work I biked to see a friend's band (Enemy Owl) play at Acheron, a metal bar in East Williamsburg. Then I biked a lot more all over this place.
Sunday I got up, not too incredibly hungover and took the train out to Queens to catch a Mets game with a co-worker and some of his friends.
For Ingrid, here are some shots of CitiField, where they play:
The Mets lost to the Cubs (the worst team in baseball) but it was a good day out, despite the sweltering heat, holy crap. I got a weird sunburn and sweated at least a beer and a half straight out. After the game we went to the Astoria Beer Garden and...yeah.
So! Finally, today, I went out to my parent's house armed with a camera to take a milli photos of these two little kittens she just adopted!!! They are brothers!!! How freaking cute!!
A former co-worker posted on facebook that she rescued these two little ones that were about to cross the street!! She has three cats of her own and knows how to take amazing care of kittens, but she just couldn't keep them. I don't remember if I told you all or not but my mom's cat passed away in March, and she didn't want to rush into getting another cat but some time has passed and she visited these little dudes and fell in love immediately. It's easy to see why.
My mom had to work all day today so I went over to visit the kittens and play with them and socialize them a little. They are only about three weeks old so they are suuuper tiny, but really frisky and sweet.
Nopalitos burrito with refried beans, potatoes, salad, radishes, and salsa verde from Taco Chulo. That is my entire weekend. It was a good one! Do you guys prefer busy weekends, or slow, chill ones? I usually stay pretty low-key but sometimes mania kicks in and I need to get out of the house. Plus, the more I do on weekends, it kind of feels like the weekend was longer. So, yeah! Here's to next weekend. You know, everybody is workin' for the weekend.
