Thrillist Drinks at The Brixton

A few weeks ago Aaron convinced me, with little effort, to purchase a Thrillist deal for The Brixton. In exchange for $38 we’d each get five beers, five cocktails and an appetizer. The drinks were pre-determined with an emphasis on world beers and cocktails but the appetizers would be of our choosing. An $84 value for only $38!

Ordinarily I wouldn’t travel to San Francisco’s Marina for drinks and appetizers but this deal, and the group of friends who joined in, made it worth the long 22-Fillmore bus ride.

Oh but there was a catch. To get your appetizer you had to drink all ten passport drinks. Never fear, we were up to the challenge. Shea, Kat, Aaron and I worked over two nights, with a little help from Oliver, to complete four Olympic Passports.  Continue reading

Eastbound and Down

May 29th I will be taking flight to the East Coast with a singular purpose, to see you New Yorkers. This jaunt will be followed by a trip down to visit my friends in Washington DC before heading back west June 6. It’s a short trip but I plan to fill it with oceans of fun.

New York City Skyline

I would love to see you all my New York City friends and my Washington DC friends on this trip. I think the easiest way for us to do that is to choose a night to all meet up for dinner, drinks and debauchery. There are only a couple of nights in New York City that this can happen but I will also be free during the day for coffees, lunches, museums, etc.

Take a look at that schedule and let me know when you’re free to hang out. Feel free to suggest things I should do, places I should eat and bars where I should have a drink. As far as New York City, I still have never seen a Broadway show, gasp, and have only been to a couple of museums. So if either of those whet your appetite, let’s make it happen! Looking forward to seeing you guys.

Washington DC and the White House

As far as my time in Washington DC, well I have a lot more of it. So let’s get creative about the time we share together in The District. I’m even tempted to add on a night in Philadelphia but with the tight schedule I have, that might not be possible.
