Baseball Days

I had a nice weekend. On friday I went to an old haunt, The Bank. I’m surprised the bar tender their remembered me, as it had been almost a year since I had been there. Had a beer then came home.

I slept in on Saturday. At around noon I met my dad and my brother at Coors Field to watch the Rockies play the Expos. The Rockies lost, but I got to introduce my brother to the infamous Rockie Dog (a foot long hotdog with fresh onions, grilled onions, grilled red peppers, grilled green peppers, sauerkraut, and mustard). Only three places in the nation serve the Rockie Dog, and they all happen to be within 100 yards of each other. After the game me and my brother went over to my mom’s to celebrate mothers day (we were both in Vegas last weekend). We watched Piñero. It was just “ok”. I’d only recommend it to the right people. The chronology was difficult to follow. I don’t think I would have liked it had it not been biographical.

I got up early on Sunday morning and spent the morning at the coffee shop reading. Then I hopped on my bike and went tooling around town. I went to Revoluciones to check out the showing of Amy Flomberg’s work. It was all really good, I particularly liked the larger brighter pieces. Sherry Hern also had work there that was pretty good. I also spent some time at Denver Public Library and riding around the park.

CC’s And Top Speeds

I decided to go to the going away party on Friday (the exhibit will be open for a while yet). It was pretty fun. Lots of motorcycle gear-heads there. You know the type: constant talk of cc’s and top speeds but alright guys. I spent most the night talking with the host’s new girlfriend and one of her friends. The night’s main event was the Tampico Challenge (who can drink a gallon of Tampico the fastest) which was a gross display of over consumption and excess for no other reason than to… I don’t know. Then I went out to Lodo and shot pool and tried my hand at flirting with the drunks.

For most of the remainder of the weekend I ran errands because it will be a busy week with appointments and whatnot. I went to my moms for dinner on Sunday. I watched Personal Velocity and Scooby Doo this weekend, which were great (go see it!) and pretty crappy respectively.

Mellow, Pleasant Weekend

I had a nice weekend. Nothing too exciting lots of movies and more skiing, it was nice. I left work early and met Leber and his Fiance at the hogback. From there we carpooled up to his condo in Granby. We got a few beers and some french onion soup at Solvista.

On Saturday we went skiing at Winterpark. The snow was incredible. Definitely the best I’ve skied all year. We skied a long day then retired back to Leber’s condo. Some additional friends met us there and fixed us a huge meal of spaghetti, meatballs, sausage, salad, asparagus, garlic bread, beer, and wine. And we watched Saving Private Ryan. Three of the five people in the room cried.

On Sunday we drove back into town and I went over to my mom’s for lunch. I watched The Virgin Suicides and caught up on the latest war news. It was a mellow, pleasant weekend.

Not Here

I have been slammed with work over the past couple of days. But no more! Tomorrow I’m taking an 8 hour road trip here, and am staying here in order to ski here.

I’m also attending a wedding on Saturday (one of many this year) in Utah. This should make for a nice and semi-relaxing long weekend away. Utah isn’t the greatest place to hang out during the winter (the summer is much more fun, i.e. moutain biking in Moab, camping in Arches, boating at Powell), but it sure is a great place to ski. I’m just really looking forward to getting out of town. I may not post again till I get back on Monday.
