The Marked Men show at the Empty Bottle was awesome.

First band. Meh.

Second band. There we go.

Headliner. YES. PLEASE. And THANK YOU.

I was at the back edge of the pit and it was just where I wanted to be. Getting doused in shitty beer and pushing dudes back into the frenzy. So fun.

And typically on NYE, I have no one to kiss at midnight. No idea how this happens but it’s practically tradition. And this year, the person I wanted to be kissing was elsewhere (yes, you, you are probably reading this) but magically I had my old friend Rob to my right and new friend Dan on my left. And my girl Aimee who made the rounds — and was wasted and slipped me the tongue. I reciprocated.

The eight of us proceeded to wander back to Aimee’s in Humboldt. I promptly opened the 40 of Mickey’s purchased earlier in the evening. We turned on It’s Always Sunny, ate flamin’ hot cheesy poofs and I passed out in an oversized armchair.

Woke up bright and early, made my way home, slept for two hours, went to brunch at Flo’s with old friends (chilaquiles), saw Django Unchained (amazing), finished reading Joe Meno’s “Office Girl” (January book club selection, <3), enjoyed impromptu girl time at Rev with Martha and Mo (and saw a gazillion beer friends) and got in some bike time. If I had better “face protection,” I would’ve ridden downtown for a nice quite weeknight adventure. But that wind was a bitch and painful with my ill-fitting hat and scarf. Anyways…

So far 2013 is kickin’ ass. Let’s see if I can keep the momentum going….

RSVP’ed weeks ago. 

See some of you there?

After Critical Mass and my friend’s house party in UKV…

Gold Panda at the Empty Bottle.

22 plays
The Psychic Paramount,
II

They play tonight at the Empty Bottle with White/Light, Implodes and Andy Ortmann.

Only $8. I’ll be there by 9:30ish.

Also my friend Jon at Chicagoist seems to be flipping his shit over this so you know it’s not a waste of your time.

Someone go with me. Please? It’s free! And good tunes. There’s no excuse.

Marking my calendar: June 29th at the Empty Bottle, $12

Went to the recently renovated Bite today for brunch.

  • Say “bye, bye” to see the veggie standards and hello to meat. I happen to swing both ways, so no skin off my omnivorous back.
  • The interior was fresh, yet cozy. And bright but not so bright as to worsen my hangover.
  • It’s still BYOB and they don’t plan on changing that anytime soon
  • They take cards now. Which is perfect when you can’t get cash because the bartender at the Whistler added an extra zero when charging you and instead of VOIDing the transaction, did a refund, therefore wiping out your bank account. Yeah.
  • I’m already thinking about what to order when I go back

Definitely going to the Bottle Monday night after volleyball

That was fast.
