BBQ With Gen

The TV Guide

Last night, after far too many delays, David and I finally got to spend some time with our good friend Genevieve. She and I have been talking about getting together for months now and, for various reasons, we haven’t been able to get it together. We committed ourselves to hanging out last night and SUCCESS, we had an amazing time together. I mean, it’s impossible not to have fun when Gen is around so, yeah, mission: accomplished. More »

Freestylin’

The TV Guide

In the fairly long history of epic concert events that I have attended in my life, I struggle to remember a night that was quite as epic as last night was for my friend Ollie and me. Last night, we attended the 8th annual Freestyle Festival at QC’s 2020 in Montebello, CA. What we got was a night of unbridled fun that we were hoping to experience. There were many things about last night’s concert that made me worry that the night would be a bust. Despite the amazing line-up of performers, the concert was held inside a banquet hall on a golf course. The entire concert venue was prolly the size of the venue when you had your senior prom. I am happy to report that not only was the venue adequate but it turned out to be THE perfect place for an amazing throwback event like this to take place. Click below to see some photos and watch VIDEO from the show last night. You must experience some of the fun that Ollie and I got to experience live last night. More »

Wizards & Cheerleaders

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my last full day here in NYC this trip and it was a bizzy one. I decided to see 2 Broadway shows yesterday since I wouldn’t have time to see a show today (I fly back to LA early this afternoon). For my matinee show, I saw Potted Potter — a 2 man show that delivers all 7 Harry Potter books (and a full game of Quidditch) in 70 mins. For my evening show, I saw Bring It On: The Musical — a musical that revolves around the cut throat world of competitive cheerleading. Late last night, I got to enjoy a lovely dinner date with my friend Kanani … the perfect way to end a fun trip. More »

‘Sleep’ Walking With Shakespeare . . . And Shannon

The TV Guide

Last night was fun, y’all. It was my first official hang session with our amazing PITNB writer Shannon and we had an absolute blast. This trip is my first chance to hang out with Shannon socially so I tried to make sure we had a fun night. I took Shannon to see the amazing immersive theater production Sleep No More (it was my 8th visit) after a quick dinner date at El Centro for margaritas and Mexican food. A magical night was had, I can assure you. Click below to see some fun photos. More »

Coney Island Getaway

The TV Guide

So, yesterday was prolly one of the funnest days I’ve ever had EVER here in NY. My good friend Halli suggested that we spend some time at Coney Island since I’ve never been there before and I jumped at the chance to take her up on the offer. I can’t imagine any scenario where David would ever want to visit Coney Island (actually, when we’re here, he never wants to leave Manhattan) so off Halli and I went. We had A BLAST! We ate Nathan’s Famous hot dogs, we rode all of the rides (more than once), strolled on the boardwalk, ate lots of candy, took lots of photos … it was just fun fun fun! Check out some of the photos I snapped yesterday. More »

Fiona Apple + Sweet & Tender Hooligans = One Amazing Night

The TV Guide

After enjoying a string of relatively quiet days lately, last night was a big night for me. Not only did I get out of the house to see a concert … but I managed to see 2 full concerts back to back. Impressive, I know. For months, I’ve been looking forward to Fiona Apple‘s return to LA so I’ve been eagerly awaiting her concert stop last night at the Hollywood Palladium. A week ago, I learned that the amazing Morrissey/The Smiths coverband Sweet & Tender Hooligans were playing a show at Vertigos in downtown LA on the same night. I was hoping I’d be able to make both shows … and happily, I did. More »

Marina And The Diamonds Rock Hollywood

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very eventful day for me. I spent the early part of the day taking care of my body and the latter part of the day taking care of my soul. Because I appear to be having an issue with my knee, I went in for an evaluation with a doctor to make sure everything is OK (it is). Last night, I met up with Ollie, Darion and his friend Jessica at the Henry Fonda Theatre to see Marina and the Diamonds in concert. All in all, it was a pretty decent day. More »

A Little Bit Of Chicago

The TV Guide

Yesterday turned out to be the only day that David and I got to experience some of the amazing things about Chicago. Even tho we had to fly out late in the afternoon, we had all morning to enjoy some of the sights. I started my day early at 6AM so that I could enjoy a run in the city. Then, David and I attended the post-wedding breakfast hosted by our newlywedded friends Monique and Jay. Afterward, we met up with David’s BFF Alan who also happened to be in the city this weekend so, yeah, we managed to squeeze in a bit of fun before we had to fly back to LA. More »

Monique & Julian Got Hitched!

The TV Guide

Yesterday was David’s and my only full day here in Chicago, IL this trip but it was chock full of very, very important business … namely the wedding of our dear friend Monique to her Prince Charming Julian. After a week of blistering heat here in Chicago, the gods smiled down on Monique and J and gave them a reprieve. The temps cooled down considerably and a very lovely breeze blew into town … making for the perfect wedding day for our amazing friends. Check out some fun photos from yesterday’s nuptials below.

So 4th And So On

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very fun, extremely relaxing 4th of July for David and me. We were graciously invited to a small BBQ by our friends Amy and James (who are very close friends of Emma and Josh) and we happily accepted. David and I have been trying to hang out with Amy and James for a long time now but we just haven’t been able to get it together … so yesterday’s tiny BBQ hang was perfect. More »
