TGIF!

Whoo I am almost done with work and to get us all through the last few minutes - lets share what are plans are for the weekend - both WR and NWR.

WR - Just the knottie GTG on Sunday! ...I have to figure out food and a DIY project to bring.... And maybe I will force myself info working on some programs or invites.

NWR - Tonight I am going to Comedy Sports with some highschool friends. I have never been there but we all bought groupons so we are planning on going to uptown for dinner and then to the show! Any recs for good places to eat in Uptown?
Then on Sat it is my MOH's birthday so we rented a boat and are going to have a Birthday Boat Bash on Lake Minnetonka! I cant wait!

    oohh exciting.  What kind of food are you in the mood for? Do you want it to be within walking distance? If you head over to Nicollet, there are hundreds of ethnic restaurants!  Otherwise, there are a lot of really great restaurants in Uptown too! (I used to live over there)

    my plans...

    WR: I'll be coming to at least part of the GTG! I'm hoping to play around with MSP bio a little more, too.  aaand maybe I'll work on my invites, even though I really don't want to look at them anymore.

    NWR: hanging out with the puppy. FI is out of town for work tonight, so I'll be watching a lot of Bones on my Netflix instant viewing.

    NWR: Date night with DH tonight!  We might go see Knight and Day and I"m going to try and talk him into Red Lobster (I <heart /> crab legs).

    WR - NOTHING! :) Well...maybe I'll do some researching and more than likely check the boards here and there.

    NWR - Tonight I'm going to a present/past co-worker BBQ, then tomorrow night another BBQ/Bonfire with some friends. Excited to have a little Jeremiah Weed/Lemonade! :)

    Enjoy your weekend ladies!

    Recs galore:

    Chino Latino
    Sushi Tango
    The Independent
    Chiang Mai Thai
    Namaste Care

    Also, something that's not quite in Uptown, but is close: Peninsula. It's at Hennepin and 26th, as I recall... and it has the most amazing food of all time. Seriously. Of all time.

    My plans:

    WR: Finally going to Michaels and buying our invitations. Finalizing the BM dress order. Coming to the GTG.

    NWR: Driving to Eau Claire tonight to see my parents... as it's my Dad's birthday. Tomorrow morning, I'll head onward to Milwaukee to see Gavin DeGraw at SummerFest with my sister and our cousin Cat. Then, I'll head back Sunday just in time for the GTG. Yes, I'll be doing a lot of traveling this weekend, so no one be too disappointed if I show up to the GTG with something storebought!

    Danielle- he's getting huge.  He was about 8 pounds when we got him in May.  He's now 17 (as of a week ago.) he's also insanely tall... and just because I love showing him off, here you go:

    Restaurants in Uptown: PPs pretty much said it. I don't live in MN so they would know better than me! (Although I am ALWAYS a fan of Famous Dave's). As for Comedy Sportz - I hope it's a good show! My friends and I did that at least once a month when we were in HS ... such good memories!

    This weekend: It's Pride weekend in Chicago, so I will be out for the madness in Boystown. Whoo!

    Also hoping to work more on the invites.

    Agh, I'm jealous of the cute puppies! We can't have on in our apartment.

    I don't have any WR weekend plans, unless we happen to get phone calls back from venues we're feeling out.

    I'll be attending the Pride festival this weekend, in support of my friends who aren't as lucky as I am to be able to marry the person they want to share their lives with. I'll be volunteering at the tent my company has set up in the park for a bit tomorrow afternoon, and I'll probably go to the parade on Sunday as well. Should be good times!

    Oh, I can never resist an opportunity to show off my puppy!

    WR: Dress Shopping. My DOC works at The Wedding Connection in Maplewood so we're going to look for BM, MOB/MOG, and my dress.

    NWR: Sigh. Cleaning toilets? LOL! :)

    I'm a little late to the party. I left work early on Friday to... NWR: pick up our new puppy! His name is Wesley, though we might change it to Vader. He's a black lab/beagle mix, so he's the size of a beagle with long legs. He's all black except for the white on his paws and chest, and his fur gets a tiny bit brown on his head. He's really sweet and mellow and just wants to be wherever we are. He's the perfect dog for me, although FI probably wishes he were more active. He's a friendly dog, just really mellow. He doesn't jump on or lick anyone, and hasn't had any accidents so far. I love my dog. :) WR: not a damn thing, although we do need to get our e-pics done, probably at the landscape arboretum, and think about STDs. I think this is the 2nd year in over 10 that I haven't been to Pride. I went with friends in college, then I was on the executive board for 3 years, then had a booth there for the next 4 years. I've still got friends on the board and a lifetime VIP pass, but honestly, I've moved on. I wish them well.

    FI and went to his cousin's for dinner last night, so I couldn't make it to the GTG.  It was pretty fun, with just 4 of us talking/drinking/eating.  I made mojitos that were better than any I'd made before and I made homemade angel food cake served with real whipped cream and strawberries from the farmers market.  I feel so Martha Stewart!  I'm almost happy the first attempt at the angle food cake (never make it in a fancy bundt since you have to cut it out of the pan) didn't go so well, because now we have awesome leftovers.  It doesn't look great, but it tastes delicious.  Now I need to figure out what to do with the 16 leftover egg yolks I have in the fridge.
