How Was Your Weekend? Mine Was Great...Got Laid, Yada Yada Yada....

OK, time for a weekend recap. I had a solid weekend actually. Friday night I went out with 2 co-workers who are very fun girls. The kind of girls who have threesomes and make no bones about telling you that over wine at Eat Bar next to Tallula. That place actually has fantastic wine and cheese and fruit appetizers.

From there we went to Gua Rapo and all of its quasi-euro trash glory. At least there were no guys wearing sunglasses at night.

And we ended up the night on a high point- scarfing down chicken fingers and patty melts at IHOP. Although the next morning, my stomach was not a happy camper.

Cut to Saturday where I went to a cute boy's house to watch Va Tech STOMP UVA. Actually, I really don't care about either team but there was alcohol and chips and dip involved so it was fun to me.

Saturday night I went to a bar that was on my long list of places to hit up - Wonderland located in Columbia Heights. It'a in a sketchy area, and from the outside the bar looks like a shack. Inside it reminds me of the Big Hunt.

Wonderland is often described as a hipster hang out, and indeed there were a ton of them out. There were also a few blipsters - black hipsters - there as well, enjoying both De Le Soul and the Shins alike. I think because Wonderland has been a hotspot recently hipsters are "over" it and roll their eyes when the frat boys enter the building.

But you know why anyone and everyone should be able to go to Wonderland? The BOMB-ASS AWESOME DJ that spun everything from 80s to New Wave to Crunk to 90's house. For real I danced non-stop from 11pm to 2am. Who spins Wham! then New Edition then Neneh Cherry!???and gets away with it? He did. I lost my shit to "Buffalo Stance" and sweated out my straightened hair. I have no idea who the DJ was, but if I ever go back I hope he is there.

And lastly that brings us to Sunday. No I didn't forget about the laid part of my post title. I "relapsed" and "let the puppy out of the basement" and saw Malibu Ken. Six months later I have found that we are both still carrying around the same emotion and the same love and the same disappointments. As an adult I made a conscious choice to be intimate. I'm feeling OK right now, but who knows what kind of aftermath my emotions will face in a few days...maybe I will make a trip sooner rather than later to Wonderland to dance off the blues...

Wow! Did NOT see that coming. I guess it's a good thing, no?

Whoa, slow your roll.....

If it was your decision and something you wanted to do and you can handle, go for it.

Just be careful and keep your feelings safe.

I'd never heard of Wonderland until Friday night and someone mentioned it, I was wasted and off we went. Cool little place though I don't remember much given the shots of grand marnier and the beers and wine and general inebriation.

Next time, we'll coordinate.

law-rah - not a good thing per se, just a present thing..

sharkie - i hear ya loud and clear

twoste - the weather is cool...

heather - if we both went at the same time i don't think people would be able to comprehend our attendance there. we may have to do it in shifts as to not shock the hipsters.
