On Friday night, Wife and I started off our month of summer (school will start in a few weeks) with a night of eating and drinking. We cycled west to University and 30th to enjoy the monthly event, 30th on 30th. After we locked up our bikes using every lock and wire (Wife was a little paranoid), we walked into Rancho’s to pick up some food and then out to the patio area where we enjoyed chicken tamales in mole sauce with an Orange Ave Wit from the Coronado Brewing Company. A few blocks away at the Linkery, we ate grass-fed beef tacos and I enjoyed the 30th Street Pale Ale. Our last stop for 30th on 30th was Urban Solace, where we sat and enjoyed pulled pork and drinks.
Now full, we carefully unlocked our bikes and rode up 30th (utilizing Wife’s new head and tail lights I bought earlier in the evening) to the local Tequila bar to hang out with our friends Liz and Ryan, Tina and Burns, and Katie and Jim. Once inside and with drinks in hand, I utilized my new sports history knowledge to wow and amaze those at our table (Ty Cobb still holds the overall batting average record with a .367). When the bar closed at the late hour of 10 pm, we rode home and went to bed.
On Saturday, after a few hours of working at a one-day summer camp up in Miramar, Wife and I enjoyed a lazy afternoon topped off with live Seattle Sounders versus San Jose Earthquakes (in which the Sounders soundly defeated the Earthquakes). After the first half, I decided we needed to get out of the house and created the ultimate viewing experience in our backyard. You can see it in the pictures below:
To end the weekend, Wife visited her family out in El Cajon (and exhausted Killian with his two play-dates) while I headed out with Joe (@eastmancolour) to April’s (@grrillaesthete) place for an afternoon of Axis and Allies. Even though the Axis put up a valiant fight, history repeated itself as we lost in the end to the Allies. Next time the Axis will win, I guarantee it!
With the work-week upon us once again, at least I do not have any evening classes, just fun things to look forward to!
