Well.. I don’t want to steal thunder from Andrew’s Vegas trip-pola but I had a decent weekend as well.
This sums me up right now:
Thursday night I went to Fearing’s at the Ritz Carlton. My friend and I had ironically been talking about how I, being such a foodie, needed to go there– Law of Attraction my dad was having a client dinner and invited me along!
It was right after dinner at Toulouse so I was full.. but I saved some room for drinks and dessert. of course. Somehow lost the photos. but dont worry. ill deff. be back. soon.
Friday night Erika, Lauren and I went to the House Of Blues. We went to see the Journey tribute band, The Frontiers. We ended up hearing two of the Journey songs (both we didn’t know) but we got to listen to the opening band who was pretty damn good.
We arrived around 8:30 and chilled in the Foundation Room until around 10 when the show started. We ordered fun drinks that arrived with a Texas size tab, but it was worth it 🙂
Headed down to the main concert hall where we were escorted into the foundation member “sitting area” aka the most awkward section in the middle of the floor where we could sit on sofas. We opted to do the real experience and pulled our way to the front of the stage.
Afterwards we met up Laura, Ellen and couple of her friends and ended the night at Uptown Bar and Grill. Erika, Laura and I babied out and headed home around midnight.
Saturday night I drove into Stephenville to visit my best friend Alex. Little did I know the trouble that honkey tonk bars bring.
We headed to City Limits. Needless to say I two-stepped, half-stepped, and Cupid Shuffled my way back to Alex’s around 2:30 or 3:00.
I learned a few things in Stephenville:
1) “Chicken Fry” verb: to deep fry food in very high fat batter and oil. Does not necessarily involve chicken. eg. “chicken-fried green beans” “chicken-fried steak”
2) “Pitting” verb: to sweat from your arm pits and have stains on your shirt. eg. “Your wet swim suit makes it looks like you are pitting.”
3) “Vegas Bomb” noun: Bad News Bears. eg. “Get us another round of Vegas Bombs!”
4) “Texas Country” noun: Texas country blends these sub-genres by featuring straight-forward, truthful lyrics, a “take it or leave it” approach, a “common working man” theme, comical, witty undertones, intense lives performances, and loyal fan-bases. These often combine with stripped down music, increasing the intimate connection between a singer and audience. antonym: see Rascal Flatts and Taylor Swift
Sunday morning our crew met up and tubed on the Brazos River. That’s all I can say about that.
Great Weekend. I hope to keep it a touch classier this weekend.
Starting with Purgatory on Thursday.yikes.
