Richie Aldente opening for Bushwalla at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA.
So, I know this is a daily picture blog. But every now and then, a day comes along that has too many good pictures. Today is one of those days.
The sleeping arrangements.
The avocado farm and guest house/studio.
Oceanside, CA's beach.
For old time's sake.
This was one of the strangest, and most fun days, I've had in a long while. Thank you J for opening your home to us and for your hospitality.
I'm taking a trip, to San Diego, with the guys from Richie Aldente! Randomness and hilarity will ensue. They are opening for Bushwalla at the Belly Up in Solana Beach on the 31st.
I promise, the pics to come will amuse.
A few of us ventured across the bridge to the West Seattle Wing Dome to try some wings at the Google Seattle event. Here's Brandon before he eats one wing of each spice level, 1-7.
It's a good thing I take food shots because I forgot to take pics of anything else today... This is breakfast from Bacco, a restaurant at the market that I've never been to before. Laura and Colin accompanied me.
I love that all of us actually dress up for the pub crawls. This one was summer/beach themed and everyone dressed the part. It was one of the more ridiculous pub crawls.
It's April, myself and Laura!
This picture is technically on the 14th, since it was taken after midnight. This was the beginning of the night, it was a very late night, ending in the ID.
I took so many great photos today, it's hard to choose just one. I did love this one, however. It's a random pic of the sky, from Downtown Detroit.
And a bonus pic today, the Kite Waterfall from the Compuware Building.
Some random fact from Wikipedia:
The building's water feature was designed by WET Design, the same people who designed the fountains at Bellagio and the Winter Olympic cauldron. It features fifteen glass "kites" and, at more than 14 stories tall, represents the largest indoor, hanging water feature in the world.
I went to my dad's house today and he showed me his new toy... He bought a three wheel bike to ride to the store, or ride around, or whatever. He was really into it, for sure. Also, he put a motor on it so he can have some extra power when going up hills.
So, yeah, if you see a guy riding this bike in the Novi area... yeah, that's my papa.
Roosevelt's was like the quintessential Farmington Hills bar. It's where you run into everyone from high school, from classes ten years in front and behind you. It's where you meet your friends for a night cap before heading to your parents house, during college summer breaks. It's where you'd watch games, play pool, and hope the doorman wasn't checking your ID when you were not quite of age.
Well, apparently, Roosevelt's is closed until further notice.
I was invited by The Hungry Dudes to taste some foods at Barrio, a new restaurant in Birmingham.
I took a ton of pics, but this was my fav of the day. It's Hacienda (another place here in Detroit) chips with Verde and Mango Salsa. Delicious.
Also, bonus pic - check out their tequila list!
