Some Happy, Happy Hour(s)

This weekend was a whirlwind of activity.  Our friend from college (and Dave's former roommate), Shannon, and her boyfriend Chris - who will be referred to from now on as Crooney - were in town for a Saturday afternoon wedding.  Which meant Friday night happy hour (does happy hour run until 11 p.m.?) was definitely in order!

Me, Dave, Shannon, and Crooney - definitely my favorite picture from the evening

We started out at Mad Mex for happy hour and dinner but soon navigating to Hemingway's - our favorite bar from our college years that we just can't grow out of.  And why should we?  The have $1.50 drafts all day every day, and half-priced food from 9 p.m. to midnight.  It's an amazing place.

Although I am usually the designated driver (by choice), I asked Dave if he would be DD for the night, and he agreed.  (I think he realizes how lucky he is to have a DD 90% of the time.)  I had a great time, and although I didn't overdo it, I definitely did enjoy myself.  I did have a headache on Saturday morning but some fruit punch and mini-wheats before I went to bed on Friday night really helped.

We watched the Philly's lose and the Panther's win and later in the night some other friends joined us.  Believe it or not, the next afternoon at 2 p.m., we went to Station Square to start over again, since the wedding reception that Shannon and Crooney were attending was on the Gateway Clipper.  We were home around 5:30 and Dave went out again at 10 p.m.  I bowed out on that one, as I was definitely spent.

Then it was on to yard work on Sunday.  Which - now that I think about it - were NOT happy hours (but only because I hate yard work.)
