Todd, Jessica, and I drove the 4 hours up to Kansas City on Friday to meet up with friends and have some out of town fun. That night we saw Lucero, Decibully, & Blackpool Lights (the old singer of the Get Up Kids’ new band). Although the show was great, the venue was pathetic. If you wanted to drink, you had to stand in the back – in a CAGE. Then on top of that, the “bar” menu consisted of a piece of cardboard with PBR and about 3 other drinks scribbled on it. Then, of course, the “bar” ran out of drinks. So before the end of the night, the cardboard had lines drawn through just about everything. After the show we were all starrrving, so we ended up eating breakfast at 1 am. Once safe & sound back at Seth’s loft we slept till almost noon the next day.
The next day a bunch of us met up at a breezy lil pizza joint that had THE biggest slices of pizza I think I’ve ever seen. We ate every single one of them too.
From there it was on to the first casino that I’ve been to since I won enough money to buy this little iBook that I love so much. The only big winner this time was Aaron who hit the jackpot when he won 10 bucks on the penny slots. I only lost 15 dollars, but still managed to have about 2 hours worth of fun.
I didn’t think anything could be as fun as slot machines and bloody marys, but I was most definitely wrong. We headed straight out into the fields of Missouri for a Corn Maze adventure…
Overall, the weekend was simply spectacular.
Life is good.
