weekends with the boys

couple of weeks ago dj spooky played a set at the Black Cat. gianma, robin and myself were the opening act. gianma was on the 1s and 2s, robin was on deck with his audio visual delights, and i danced onstage. here's some pics i took of the boys from the stage during one of my breaks.

hee harrrrr.

on sunday the three of us trekked down to...crystal city, va, cursing the whole way, to check out Artomatic 2007 on it's closing day. it would be an understatement to say that robin and i were less than impressed with this years Artomatic in comparison with the last. alas, we started drinking stuff as soon as we got there. eventually we stumbled upon a dark room occupied by a handful of interesting characters. they had put much effort into decorating their space and their art was impressive. we quickly learned that they were fun peeps to be hung out with and made ourselves comfy, at their insistence, in their little den. did we mini party? yes we did :)

i mini partied until i had to give robin the keys to drive us back to the city. off we rode in search of red meat. our search landed us at bistrot du coin, which stays open till the wee hours to serve us delicious steaks and frites.

i feel like eating everything.

i could start with some huge fluffy buttermilk biscuits...with some syrup to sop up with them. some scrambled eggs...with some fancy cheese in them. some bacon. some sausage. oooo, some homefries...with old bay on them.

then a couple of hours later, burgers and fries from five guys.

then, a couple of hours later, veal with black truffle sauce from Al Crostino. with them thin sliced oven roasted potatoes Nico makes. a bottle of red. and whoever is with me should get some of the homemade pasta. and that person should get really full after eating only a couple bites of their pasta. then i'd take over...

...i want some sushi...

*edited to add: i also want some crabs. again. 7 crabs.

goodbye for real this time

buzz, capitol ballroom, sting, nation, cubic...whatever you ever called it...whenever you were ever into it is just about gone for good now.

i'll never forget the times i had there.
buzz is where i met one of the best people i'll ever know,
where i found out that dancing is my passion,
where i celebrated with friends,
made friends and acquaintances out of strangers,
met sketchy boys,
ran away from sketchy boys...etc.

i used to go because i felt like i belonged and that i could do what i love to do there.

turbo tabla weekend

This album is powered by BubbleShare - Add to my blog

this past weekend was our annual turbo tabla weekend. karim put on a fabulous show, and tribal remix, laura, myself, and the calmes triplets performed as well. afterwards the drinks started flowing and the party at Pasha Lounge was jumpin'. all of us kept saying that we need to do this more than once a year cause it was soooo much fun. i can't believe i took that many pictures, though.

on sunday karim gave a lecture and a workshop. both were phenomenal. karim is an excellent teacher.

countdown till UDM: 4 days.

tastes like crack

i just googled the term "sushi addiction"...glad i'm not the only one. not by a long shot, actually.
