Gary at 23

September 22nd, 2003 2:11 AM

Wow. Last night was a crazy night in celebration of Gary’s birthday.

At noon Lauren and I went to see part of the Flügtag at the Pier which ended up being rather less spectacular than the commercials might have led people to believe. There were a few good moments though.

We then met Gary in Santa Monica and went back to his place to swim and chill for a while. After swimming we came back to Santa Monica to eat at Toi on Wilshire where we tried to decide where to go drinking. Gary settled on Main Street so it was off to the Library Ale House. We started in on a pitcher and it wasn’t long before Rich showed up to join the party, prompting us to get a table and food.

From the Ale House we crossed the street and went to the World Cafe which was really a rather terrible decision since their selection of beer was awful (their recommendation for a dark beer other than Guinness was Newcastle, from a can and bottle, respectively) and three rounds of beer at the Ale House made starting in on hard drinks an unpleasant idea. But that’s exactly what we did until last call was announced obnixiously early at quarter to one. In the end, though, the early last call was acceptable because everyone that wasn’t driving was pretty far gone. So we packed into cars and ended the night with some late night Mexican food.

i would appreciate it if in the future you could censor all references to mexican food. it’s bringing down the morale of the troops.

I’ll make a note of your desire to see references to Mexican food in the future. I can’t guarantee it won’t show up, but I’ll try. You really need to find a place in New York that can fill this new gap in your life with something that approximates Mexican food.
