My weekend in review

Friday:

Poker- I have off cycles with poker, when I just don’t feel like playing for weeks at a time. These complement my binge times, when I play every available hour of every day. I’m in an off phase right now, after binging for most of the Spring. The weather has just been too beautiful, and I’ve been too happy, for me to be hunched over a poker table sweating out a hand or caring about my chip stack. I hardly even played during my recent Vegas trip. Still, Friday’s I Had Outs (that’s the poker blog I co-write with Ms. Summers) tournament was such a great time that it might be the inspiration I needed to come out of my hiatus. Tournament recap is here.

Saturday:

The most deliciously lazy day of all time culminated in dinner at Calle Ocho on New York’s Upper West Side at like 10pm. It was seriously great:

Paella:

Cojito (Coconut Mojito):

Cojito-A Coconut Mojito.  Delicious.

Some of the best bread I’ve ever had:

Bread in a cigar box

A drink afterward at Stone Rose at the Time Warner Center was pretty much icing. Some art at TWC:

Sunday:

Simpsons Movie- At the beginning of the movie, the audience are called suckers for paying to see something they can see for free on TV. By the end of the movie, I agreed with that.

John From Cincinnati- Didn’t watch it! HA! We’re through!

Entourage- Ari crying?! Oh Jesus.

Flight of the Conchords- Weak episode but still a great show.

HBO Commercials-

Big Love looks like it’s really heating up. I hear it’s moving back to Sunday where it belongs. Yeehaw.

Tell Me You Love Me- Looking forward to falling in love with yet another HBO series when it begins in September. The word is this one is sort of porn-y, though.

Great weekend, leave yours in the comment section.

Bought a used softball bat, hung out with my brother, his wife and my baby nephew, then discovered Iced Earth has a new album coming out on 9/11.

Apparently, that’s a popular date to release an album. Kanye and 50 Cent’s albums come out that day too.

You’ll be back.

Cojito? Coconut: good. Rum: good. Gotta try this!

It was incredible. Note the coconut pieces on the rim of the glass. If you’re ever in NY, I’ll take you for one. :-)

I don’t see the problem.

Oh, me either. I guess it was a warning to those that do.
