So I'm hiding over here on LJ.

We aren't going to the magical barbecue until 2 (see last year's coverage here), B already prepped the ribs/sauce and is currently napping, and I have a bit until I go running so let's try to catch up on LJ!

I haven't forgotten to update about SleaZe! On that night I showed up around 9:30 and sat with Ben, Bud, and Marty downstairs at B's bar for the first while. There were definitely tons of people coming through, and once Serg and Kelly arrived and I had drinks with them for a while I headed upstairs. Initially Stuart abandoned me on the dance floor to go smoke, but once he was back we hung out and had a great time! The DJs were all serviceable or better, and the crowd was happy and fun. Ward was in the building photographing constantly but like magic I did not end up in the MW. I do think Steve's instinct was right that CoHi/Petworth/Park View have pent up demand for gay parties, and there weren't any on Thursdays until now. Very successful inaugural event, and I am bummed to be out of town for the next one. Of course this means that the June instance is going to be crazy and extend the weekend further: SleaZe Thu, the Pride 5K Fri, parade/day drinking Sat, and festival Sun. Can't wait!

Back to current stuff: on Friday I got caught at work until 5:45 despite trying to crawl out of there on time. I went home and changed, then met Blake at Bear Happy Hour. Also saw Dave, Matt, and Kyle there, plus a cameo from Brian S*! He is in town just for the weekend, and I also mentioned my NY dates so hopefully we will cross paths there. Then we headed to Satellite Room for dinner, where I had the best breakfast platter I can remember. Pancakes are delicious. Then we had a couple of drinks at Uproar with Jason A. and his boyfriend Tony, before coming back home. And as though I hadn't had enough, I briefly considered going to Cobalt, but bed ended up being more appealing.

Yesterday I went to the gym for a very thorough shoulder workout, sat around Pret for a bit with an iced coffee, then met Blake and Carlos at Duplex. They were having a strange Real Housewives-themed daydrinking event, but it was reasonably amusing. Also had a few minutes to chat with Elliott about Stu's hiking and our respective workout plans. From there we went to sit on the Larry's patio for a while with their friend Brad, then I came back home. Very full weekend already, and we haven't even done the Easter thing yet.

*If you want to go seriously far back in the archive, Brian S. was one of the first people I met in college and we were among a handful of out guys as freshmen. He is even mentioned in my first LJ entry ever in case you want to read 18-year old me gush over boys and abuse punctuation.

OK, I have to say it: awww!

Your first posts are adorable. And I don't even mind what some would consider the ... excessive use of the ... ellipsis. :)
