running around town

So I'm coming off an exciting weekend spent downtown (just loving my new apartment I tell ya) - beautiful weather followed by great times spent with friends. Oh how I love them all.

Friday, I met up with friends at Edison's Pub in Tremont to meet up with Jenn and Sarah and met a whole new group of interesting people. While you may have heard about this secret little place called Tina's Niteclub from reading Alexa's blog, it seems like all the cool kids end up there late night to sing their favorite songs.

While I didn't actually sing, mostly because I wasn't drinking enough and I started to lose my voice as it got later, there were some ammmmmmazing song choices from my friends but some of those people can sing! Seriously, some of these peeps can belt out some tunes.

On Saturday, I headed way east to Chagrin Falls for my cousin's wife's baby shower and their baby is due on my birthday. Yay for January 18 birthdays!

Mom to be

Staying in the theme of throwing apartment parties for the week, I had some college friends over to see my new place and had a group of friends over to watch Gossip Girl earlier in the week. Let's just say we didn't do a whole lot of TV watching but lots of laughing ensued and that's exactly what happened Saturday night too.

A few of us headed out to the W.25th area to Market then Bier Markt then Speakeasy and for some reason we decided to head to W.6th. (Yes, I know, but we were going with the flow and the people we were with.)

We went to Drop Bar which I'm still going to call Mercury no matter how many times they change the name, and this is about the time where my two friends and I thought we could be on the show "So you think you can dance?"

See, proof, we thought we could dance

I would really hate to have been anyone there watching us or, mainly me, dancing around like a bunch of fools to Rihanna, Britney Spears and whatever house music they played. (You people know I can't dance!)



The weekend went by too fast and another really busy week is ahead of me with no sign of stopping until I'm on a beach with a mojito in hand. Sun, sand and one of my best friends for a whole week of relaxation is just what is ordered for both of us right about now.

P.S. Shout out to readers Zoe and Erika who I met in real life this weekend!

Wait, there's no more Mercury?? I used to go there on Sunday (Club Roma) nights during my single days to try and snag myself a European husband. Haha! Memories...

Sometimes, not knowing how to dance makes you better!

if you have enough to drink, anyone can dance! And as long as you are laughing, who cares!
