90s R&B and the luck of the irish


Friday night, my friends and I went waaaaaaaay back to 1994 with Boyz II Men and sang our hearts out from the balcony to "I'll Make Love to You, Motown Philly and End of the Road."

The concert was completely sold out - yes, that's right. I'll be the first to admit that played that II CD out in my sweet Sanyo boombox until it skipped. (Don't act like you didn't!) Even though the next day was going to start early in the morning, my friends and I stayed out at House of Blues and danced to old school hip hop in the Foundation Room until the early hours.

Danielle, Meredith, Dena and me - fog machine was in full effect
Even though we were out late the night before, I was up and ready to go to prepare my apartment for friends to come over for some breakfast and beer before we started off St. Patrick's Day.

What did we do?

Exactly what you did - we drank like it was going out of style on Hodge's patio for pretty much the entire day. The patio was clutch because it wasn't crazy crowded, not too many drunken fools, no ridiculous wait to get a beer and the food trucks were sitting right on Euclid. Plus, with a short nap, my brother, me and a friend made it out for round 2. That's right people, if you pace yourself accordingly with a gatorade in between beers, you too could drink for 12 hours. Without further ado, on with the photo montage!

party time!

After a full night's rest, we continued our drinking at brunch at XYZ followed by more Sunday Funday fun at Market where we wore short-sleeved shirts with sandals (it's only March people) and even my translucent skin probably got a little color.

before the rain came through
snacks, mimosas and shoreway coolers all around

And with that, I, probably like a lot of other people, will be starting a detox for the next week or longer, considering I treated my body like a carnival for the past two days.
