Friday

Drove to Madison WI

Dinner on the Westside @ Claddagh's Irish Pub for a friends birthday.

Then down to Capital Square for Drinks @ Madisons and Pool at the Great Dane. The only place left for a 30 year old to go in downtown.

Saturday

Lunch @ Quaker Steak and Lube

Read The Omnivores Dilemma by Dilemma by Michael Pollan
Worth the time to check it out. Ethanol is Bullshit, Your diet is %50 percent corn and the health of the world depends on grass.

Watched Juno. I liked it.

Drove to Wautoma Wisconsin.

Cocktails with a great group of people.

Up at dawn.

Carted 50 wheelbarrow loads of singles as I helped some friends do a roof tear off.

Drove back to Minneapolis

Sunday Dinner - Beef tenderloin on the grill, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, garlic bread. Topic of the night unfinished diamond engagement rings.

My in laws or, I guess they will soon be my EX-In laws live in Madison Wisconsin -- are you getting Married again?

Brian in Mpls said...

Eventually I believe I will although it is not in the cards for the next duration of time.

Madison cracks me up that the whole city passed a resolution that no building can be taller then the state capital. So here is my impression of the Madison skyline.

roof tear off at dawn, doh!

Brian in Mpls said...

Muffy: What. you know that was coming.

Rocket: It sucked think wind, cold and hungover. I am actually surprised my back isn't killing me today. Although I have to admit it feels good to do something like that everyonce in a while.

50 wheelbarrow loads of singles? How many single Wisconsinites fit in a wheelbarrow?

Fat jokes aside...it's still a lot.

I kid.

Keri Oki said...

Brian in Mpls said...

You're a better person than me. I do NOT do hard labor when hungover.
Juno does pretty much rock.
And now you've got me craving corn on the cob...

Bill From Gainesville said...

I did not know that about the Madison skyline but now the way I learned it, I will never forget it.

EC said...

Sounds like a great time! Except for the roofing thing - yeah, that pretty much sucks.

I hope you hit up State street for some of the local refreshments.

Why for the love of Pete are you off to Fargo? Having lived in Bismarck, Grand Forks, and Fargo, there don't appear to be a lot of draws...LOL
