So, Nehru planned on driving to Chicago with some of his STI and EVO buddies last weekend. However, at the last minute someone canceled, which opened up a seat for me. Of course, I accepted.
The drive was definitely interesting. 4 pretty different people
with really the only thing in common being our love for cars - and maybe beer. It was a good time, they were cool guys.
Once we got into Chicago we hung out at Nandy's Place
for a second. It's pretty tiny, but she is on Wacker and Michigan, wtf. Seriously. So I decided I'd go hang out with some of my other buddies and find a more comfortable place to sleep.
, and Mikey picked me up at Nandy's around midnight. They played a really good trick on me saying that Mikey
was visiting Tag from Finland. He knew finnish, made fun of big american SUVs and everything. I totally bought into it. I even told him that before the night was over I was going to punch him in the balls to teach him some American customs. It turned out to be a straight lie. Dude is not from Finland. Punks.
So we ran to Debonair (Claudia and RH matt's
Bar), hung out for a bit and then walked over to Ohm. Ohm is a really cool place, lots of levels, sorta classy, hot bartenders/hired dancers, etc. I liked it. I also accidentally invited a random gay dude to come into the bathroom to pee with me. Hahaha, gaysted again!
So then around 3:30 or so I finally figured out where I'd be sleeping for the night - Tag's couch. His apt is showroom status
- complete with plastic fruit
, haha. I wanted to mess it all up so bad.
After sleeping for a few hours, I woke up, found a cab and went to Henson's place. He has a super dope condo
in an old cracker jack toy factory. We grabbed some quick breakfast at a diner, hung out for a bit, then headed to the Auto Show
. It was amazing. I'm excited to go back again. We even got to see Brad for a minute.
Later we met up with some of Henson/Anna's friends for some mexican food at Las Pinatas, where we discussed how awesome falcons are, etc. Afterwards we warmed up with a beer at the Fireplace Inn, which led into more routine Chicago debauchery.
Henson and I
met up with Harper
and friends at Debonair, which got a little out of control. Tag choked me
and ripped my diamond earrings out
, which I wouldn't find out til way later, sad. So I tackled him good
... and James' eyes got big. We then went to Ohm for a second and ended the night at Redno5
. It was nice to see John and walk past the $20 cover again.
I then crashed at Henson's place, woke up early, went back to Nandy's
and we drove home just in time for my Broomball games. I literally got dropped off, walked in the front door, grabbed my broomball gear, got back in the car, and drove to broomball. Then we had a double header - all on 10 hours of sleep in 3 days. I wanted to die.
I still sort of do.
