The Weekend…One Day Away

Can you believe it? It is only Thursday. This week is going by slow,  nope, “at a snail’s pace” sounds  better. It didn’t help that I had yesterday AND Monday off. Monday was already scheduled, it’s my usual thing to do (I work crazy hours).

Yesterday, I went to Oakland (notice the Bay Area theme as of late?) to watch my Los Angeles  Angels of Anaheim (still hate the name) take on the Oakland A’s. I don’t know why, but, my Angels just can’t win (lost 9-8) in Oakland. It’s the House of Horrors for them.  For the record, I hate… DISLIKE A’s fans!!!. They are so horrible, but these are the same people I hang out with on Sunday’s during the Fall to watch the Raiders play. I don’t know what to think anymore.

I’m going to mix it up a bit, take it WWWWAAAAYYYYYY BACK!!!

Want a throwback drink?

When was the last time you had this? I never had it, way before my time. I do know people who have had it before. I expect them to text me, telling me about the good ol’ days!

And now, the video. This post has a Bay Area feel (I’m sorry, I’ll try to cut it down), so how about some Bay Area natives?

Stay thirsty my friends, it’s Thursday.

P.S: Shout out to the new partner in crime, The Red Head. Check out her blog, it’s a good read.

Weirdo Wednesday (With a SF feel)

Wednesday is one of those odd days. It is not far removed from the previous weekend but it’s so close to the new weekend. I’m lost TORN, when we hit the so called “Hump Day“. The torn part? I just finished uploading some awesome pictures from my time in San Francisco this past weekend. I went to the Beer Olympics, the Dodgers/Giants game was expensive. Overall, I lucked out, I saved more money by going to the Olympics. I got this awesome view at the end of drinking extravganza:

Evening scenery

The awesomeness that happened inside? Pictures can only tell you so much. You want an example? You sure? Picture number 1:

Blurry? Yes. Mario’s World? Guys were crazy!

This was at the end of the event. I don’t know who could be reading this, all I can say is – Mario is a sick man.

ON TO THE NEXT ONE!

Where was Batman?

These two were awesome! Selina Kyle (that was the name she gave me) was the nicest person I ever met. Bane? He was cool, actually these are my two new friends (let’s be real, it’s not true unless it’s on Facebook)  in SF.

I’ll show one more, then maybe create a little gallery:

Poor thing, she was the only sober one.

I felt sorry for this little one. She was the DD with her group, but she was happy nonetheless. I would be to, I WANTED that can. I offered 5 bucks but she didn’t want it.

Sidenote: I’m watching Boxing (is it me or has it dropped off) and the American just lost, no manhandled, wait DESTROYED by a Russian. I can’t believed they air this fight.

Moving on:

Weekend was great, I was exhausted, SF treated me awesome like always. My counterparts? Not so much.

THE BEST THING ABOUT TODAY?

Community is coming back October 19th! This brought my spirits up, I was kind of down.

Video for your thoughts since SF is on my mind (I respect the classics):

That’s it, I’m done.

Second Saturday, Sacramento Style

As the title suggests, this one is about Second Saturday. Meaning, the Second Saturday of each month, just in case you lost count. This past Saturday (and future Second Saturdays) is the Saturday of all Saturdays in Midtown. Streets are just filled with people, dogs on leashes, bars are filled (with nice drink specials at some places.)

Their was a time in which Second Saturday was in doubt. About two years ago, a shooting took place near a bar called Streets of London and the security of that Second Saturday was put into question. The day, no, the event was put into question. Their were some talks of it being cancelled. The following Second Saturdays were a bit down, safety was a concern. It’s like with all situations same you can’t let one bad apple ruin the tree (is that the right saying in this case?).

After a while though, Second Saturday returned back to normal.

Here is the breakdown of the greatness that is Second Saturday:

  • Quality friend time.
  • Quality drinking time.
  • Great people watching.
  • Street side entertainment.
  • Great weather.

Besides those four things, Second Saturday is about the mom and pop stores. These mom and pop stores showcases art & clothing. Also, Midtown offers some pretty good art galleries. If you are in Sacramento, just make sure that you are here during Second Saturday, lots of walking is in store for you.

As soon as the sun goes down and the families are gone, that’s when things gets more fun.

For me, it’s all about this…

     Unforutnately, I only drank two Blue Moons. I would’ve liked to drink more but I couldn’t for reasons I shall state later. I had a friend and a friend of a drink like crazy so that kept me entertained. Now that I’m thinking about it, Miss SeekingStyle still owes me a drink. I might have to cash in on that debt this weekend. Focus…FOCUS. Bars (most) are filled to capacity, drink specials are around if you find the right spot. Clubs have lines everywhere, sadly(not quite) we were denied access to one.  You may even get invited to a random house party, which I’ll explain later.

Second Saturday is one of those days that you can get away going out on your own. By doing that, you are guaranteed to run into somebody that you know. That is one of the positives about Sacramento, it has the big family vibe.

If you decide to take a trip to Sacramento, make sure it lands on a Second Saturday. It’s straight forward: nice weather, friends, people watching and side show entertainment.

What more can you ask for on a Saturday? (Besides BBQ)
