Weekend Snapshots | 18

Today's Weekend Snapshots is brought to you by this handsome kiddo we met at Axelrad in Midtown called Jax. You know I say hello to dogs before humans so becoming homies with this kid wasn't anything out of the ordinary for me. Note: Always ask the owner before you say hello to a strange dog. It's the polite thing to do.

SATURDAY | We started the weekend with E's birthday celebration. We invited quite a few folks, but a lot were busy so we weren't sure there would be a good turn out. Thankfully, it was a great turn out with some homies we haven't seen in a bit, some new ones and then the regular ol' gang of bike riders! Oh yes, I'm totally part of a bike squad now. I mean, they might not admit to it but I know it's true. 😁 So the plan was to meet at 8th Wonder Brewery and do some riding if the weather permitted. According to our meteorologists, it was going to rain all day. I truly believe our rain radars have been drunk because ever since our terrible flood mid last month, the weather has been super strange. 

I tried the oh, so famous Haterade beer from 8th Wonder and really need you to understand that it is one of the worst beers I've ever tried in my LIFE! Ask for a sample, but don't waste a beer token on it (I actually had someone swap my Haterate for a different one). I stuck to Dome Faux'M and tried Alternate Universe which wasn't too bad either. The food truck there was the Intergalactic Food Truck by the Eastie Boys. Definitely inhaled the tasty fries there. Not just ANY kind of fries but WAFFLE freaking fries!! And more than the 5 that ChickfilA gives 😂

Okay, so if you've never been, 8th Wonder is $15 for a glass and three tokens or $10 with your own 8th Wonder glass & three tokens. Lots of indoor seating, tons of outdoor seating, adult seesaw thang and some games. Not too much shade outside, though, thankfully one of our friends found an umbrella and then everyone and their mama followed our lead haha! Speaking of mama's, Mama Carrizo joined us for some beer, fries, and laughs! She also took the group picture below of all of us. Pretty impressive, huh? Haha!

After 8th Wonder, six of us jumped on our bikes and went for a ride. We didn't have a plan other than we needed to end at 8th Wonder cause that's where our cars were and we weren't done with our tokens! Around 3:30 we left and hit up Cecil's PubSaint Dane's, Axelrad's and back to 8th Wonder around 9ish or so. We ate an amazing pizza at Luigi's Pizzeria located next to Axelrad's. I never would have thought of putting pico de gallo on my favorite dish but it was ah-mazing! We played some Cards against Humanity (affiliate) and I've gotta say that taking your shirt off is definitely not a guarantee that you'll get laid. Being a motherfucking sorcerer definitely does it, though!

SUNDAY | We woke up late and enjoyed the usual cuddle session with the boys. They're getting a little too comfortable with Sunday morning cuddles and it might be time for them to forget all about it or get a bigger bed. 😔 One of our bike squad members went to IHOP with his family and sent us a picture. That made me crave crepes so off we went the two of us!

Sunday consisted of E doing some yard work while I worked on fixing my website. Looks nice, right? I bought this template from Carrie Loves a while back and haven't had the chance to play with it. Definitely hit Carrie up for fantastical blog work! She's my favorite & she's super nice!
