So I went to a fundraiser carnival at the Waldorf School in the ‘dena to audit some vibes for my infant son (never too early to think about education), when I happened upon this gnarly scene! Hanley was doing his thing on the dunk tank, just playing the game, y’know? Well, what appeared to be a gang of bully thugs decided that he wasn’t playing it by the dunk tank rules that they grew up on in their city, so they all started throwing at him instead of the target! Wow, really uncool, bros. Not sure if I wanna expose my kid to this, considering home schooling now. What do you think?
Needed some post-yoga rejuvenation/alkalizing/detox/nourishment so I swung by Moon Juice, #Addicted. Of course Tommy was in there hamming it up and pushing a new drink idea on the owners. “You ladies are gonna love this; you coldpress some plum tomatoes, garlic, parsey, basil, with a pinch of kosher salt and you’ve got a refreshing juice that will get you out of any squeeze!” Wow Tommy! Sounds so #yum.
My friend’s all-Thai-Elvis-impersonator Misfits tribute band was playing Harvard and Stone the other night, so I stopped in for a little burlesque action and some rye cocktails. Wandered back to the R&D bar to find my favorite mixologist Brian Wilson getting prepped to make some magic.
Nothing breaks this mans stride! I was out taking my pooch for a stroll around “the lake” when I happened upon my man Puig being a soops responsible dog owner. His Havanese Bichon “Pinga” was so well mannered. Puig continues to show more maturity on and off the field!
Was at Origami picking up the new Suburban Light rerelease on 180 gram when I ran into SVS and JP Howell. Scotty seemed perturbed to hear JP say that Coda was his favorite Led Zep album.
Stopped by Sunset Pho for a late night bowl after the game and ran into Erisbel Arruebarruena and Carlos Triunfel. Arry said he was happy to be here because he couldn’t find a decent Bun Cha Gio anywhere in Albuquerque and Los said that he hasn’t had Ban Xeo Chay this good outside of Tacoma.
Went to a tasting last night at Silver Lake Wine and found a very bummed Matt Kemp pounding Riesling after Riesling. I asked him what was up and he said “I think I made Carl slip with my MIND.”
I decided to hit the Standard rooftop for a dip and some Memorial Day mojitos, and I got to witness Dodger legend Hideo Nomo welcome Josh Beckett to the No-No Club! So sick! Congrats, Josh!
Withrow wasn’t too bummed about getting sent down because it gave him time to work on his perfect pull. For a chill Sunday morning, he recommends the brioche donut holes and a Hong Kong Milk Tea. If you tell him you’re a fan, he’ll kick you down a nice 15% discount.
You wouldn’t know from his Marc Anthony walkout music, but Uribe is a big fan of the Chicago house scene. When he found out that Farley Jackmaster Funk was playing Rhonda, he got dressed in his finest leathers and was first in line!
