Baltimore

Let’s Recap Shall We? Trips and Food

We were really busy in 2018. I sit back and think about what all that we did last year I had to go to the calendar 4 times. I mean we were fucking busy in 2018. We went a bunch of places this year and that was even with Mary Louise doing all her shit this year. From her group final presentation for NYU, graduating from NYU, starting a new career, moving to Brooklyn, and not divorcing my ass we ate and traveled a bunch.

Made a trip to Belize to see our friends in February. We made a trip to Memphis to become God Parents for Willimena Esmerelda. We went to Bay Ridge Brooklyn for dinner a couple times. We made a trip Upstate to the Hudson Valley. We went to Philly a couple times, Baltimore for Crab, ML went to The Hamptons during the summer. Oh we also made a trip to Mexico with RJ, Mal-O-Rie, and Senorita JL. Went to St. Louis for Baby Fine Hair and Kristina’s wedding in the fall. The new stadium on campus and great friends made us visit Northwest Arkansas and then we made Memphis for Christmas.

Now here is where I am going to get some serious Fucking hate mail. We ate some serious good grub this past year. LeCoq Rico for a fancy Chicken dinner one night. Enjoyed some fine Swiss wines with the Muphranks along with some Raclette (think broiled half wheel) of cheese. We enjoyed one of Geoffrey Zakarian’s restaurants with our friend Tucker. Had an authentic Cheese Steak while we were in Philly (you know for the hangover) and it was good. For our anniversary we dined at Benjamin’s Steakhouse and the steak was good. And to finish out the holidays we of course ate at one of Thomas Keller’s joints in the Time Warner Center. I know that I am missing some places but I am going to end this because some folks may send me some more hate mail.

I love this woman! We have a lot in common and both being damn good looking is the beside the point.

Ironic that when we lived in Memphis we weren’t too far from the Forum. Now in Brooklyn we aren’t too far from this sucker.
Bad Lighting on Mary Louise but this is her the morning of her graduation. And let the record show that I will punch her in the dick if she goes for her Doctorate.
On the way up the Hudson River to see Vivian and Stone
Crab is good
That kid is going to break hearts I tell you!
No lies being told here at all!
That kid is going to be something I tell you!
Who loves some broiled Cheese
Trust me this is some good shit right here!
This be our new joint by the way!
Me and the Bride at her wedding!
Who doesn’t love some good Pastrami from Katz’s
Shrimp Sticks from Blue Water Grill in Belize. This is worth the Fucking Trip to Belize in the middle of a Hurricane and twice on Sunday.
Boy did this picture get some traction in Memphis.
Don’t laugh folks this is some good shit here!

At least I didn’t post any more pictures of dinner from Per Se.

IMG_4102To say it was hot in New York on Wednesday is an understatement.

IMG_4092Next time we are going to visit this joint! We had brunch reservations and couldn’t go in.

IMG_4084Who knew my old roomate from 742 Storer was holding out on me

IMG_4094The guys at 1300 First Ave missed us. Well they missed Shobo and tolerated me.

IMG_4085What the hell is that on my beer can?

IMG_4072Ashley Bonds is snickering at me right now.

IMG_4075Love a David Bowie Quote above the bar

IMG_4083Baltimore has a unique feel to it with the Row Houses and the NOLA courtyards

IMG_4077This speaks to me!

Hope you have a good weekend.

 

The Trumpets Got Crabs Last Weekend

Well that should get your attention if you are reading this not fully awake this morning. Get your mind out of the gutter you sick Fecks. We went to Baltimore on Amtrak this past weekend and we had a blast. Not only did we over indulge on shellfish and other goodies we got to spend time with some former Memphians too! Yep we got to see Baltimore BjorkSue, The Good Doctor, and baby Elvis and we got to hang out with my former Bar wife and her husband too!

We arrived night via Amtrak and let me tell you how great it really as compared to air travel. Arrive anytime before your train departs, coach seats are as nice as First Class, you can retreat to the quiet car if you like. The Bar Car opens right after the train takes off and you have power outlets all over the place. Seriously, no wonder Former VP Joe Biden prefers it over air or car travel.

Last weekend we took in a bit of culture and visited a Rye Bourbon distillery. Baltimore at one time was the largest Rye distillery in the country as Rye was used to replenish the soil from Tobacco farming. Afterwards we got to ‘bust up some crabs’ at Nicks on the water and again ate our asses off. That evening we dined in Little Italy and had some drinks afterward in the Pirate section of Baltimore. We will be back! Baltimore is a fun time!

 IMG_4066He is going to break hearts I tell you! Wait till he gets the drum set that Tio Robo sends him for Christmas!

IMG_4082Next time we are going to order the Large Crabs, They were good!

IMG_4069Was in Baltimore roughly 43 hours and we ate that many oysters too!

IMG_4068Delaware Bay and Salt Pond were the best!

IMG_4071Roughly I ate my weight in Lobster too!

IMG_4078We got to taste some of the goods at Sagamore Spirit. FYI – The White Rye tastes like it should be in Mason Jar.

IMG_4104Out front before the tour.

IMG_4105Love the old pics on the wall at the Distillery

IMG_4106View While busting up some Crabs!

IMG_4088No this isn’t church. This was Sunday Brunch.

IMG_4090I do love Sunday Brunch!

Again it was great to see everyone and hang out. We will be back for sure!

Have you ever seen a grown man sing “I want your sex” wearing Ass Less Chaps and a banana hammock on Good Friday?

Oh did I get your attention with that blog post? Well yes, it did happen to me this past Friday. Sorry folks but I don’t have enough time to really tell you about this. I am kinda bizzy but I wanted to make sure that I made a post on Easter Monday.

Oh and yes here are the pictures for you sick bastards.

IMG_0686Thanks to UWS H for the pics. I am sure she spit her drink out when I asked her last night for these pictures.

IMG_0688Soak it in there folks, soak it in. I have tried to drink enough Vodka this weekend to get this image out of my head and it hasn’t work.

Shout out to SBM on her first day of school in Baltimore. You got this!
