My weekend went from one event to two to three to too much with so many (great) offers that I couldn’t possibly fit into a 48 hour window. And strange enough most of those opportunities presented themselves on a recent Friday afternoon. I’m writing about this because in DC not much happens that isn’t planned well in advance with people often committing to events days if not weeks ahead of time. So with that in mind let me explain how this fortune fell into my lap. Late on Friday afternoon a friend offered me a last minute ticket (free) to see two bands Friday night at Merriweather Post Pavilion. My Saturday had already been planned as I was anxiously waiting to start my fifth batch of cider as well as checking out the Mobtown Greaseball car show in Dundalk (Charm City – East). The Mobtown Greaseball is a wonderful annual event for any motor enthusiast who likes hot-rods, customs, rat-rods, survivors, the surreal, and classic cars. Also on Friday I was also offered great seats to the Washington Redskins game versus the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Sprinkle in a family dinner, a college football game, a pick up basketball game, Seamus’ rehab, chores/errands, and it was a rock solid gold weekend. Oh yeah, I also managed to get burned, err tan.
Stay tuned for my write up and pictures from this past weekend’s Mobtown Greaseball as well as the latest batch of hard cider.
