The Joys Of Social Overbooking

by Patrick on January 19, 2010

Tweet A long holiday weekend means lots of time for rest, relaxation and some productivity right? Not for me. Friday I attended a Rachel’s birthday happy hour over at Laughing Man Tavern. I don’t know why they call it happy hour, one rarely spends just an hour getting happy. A couple of hours later I […]


Tweet “I just get tired of sitting around and watching TV.” Last night at Amadeus rehearsal I was talking with Kristin, my props designer, about her work on the show as an escape from her couch. I could easily relate to her feelings, it’s really hard to find me home alone on a Saturday night. […]


Tweet Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of having my sister Diana in town to see Rocky Horror. She’s really into Steampunk and stuff like that so of course she was going to wear a costume and in turn I had to dust off my Halloween surprise. My Rocky get-up has nothing on my […]


Tweet Last week I wrote about my run-in with The Real World DC cast and it appeared to have picked up some buzz: Thanks to everyone for reading, it’s a story I enjoyed telling and telling it this past Friday led to yet another encounter. My friends Sara and Ryan invited a bunch of us […]


Tweet I’m not worried that this blog post is way overdue. I’ve been busy trying to cover SilverDocs for DC Metblogs, and my past weekends were a trip in itself… but I’ll save that story for later. And this week has been crazy with going to all the Red Sox games this week and visiting […]

A Few Old Friends

by Patrick on December 30, 2008

Tweet It’s a routine that I’ve become more than accustomed to. Reconnecting with friends. Thanks to an unusually high number of trips back home this year (mostly due to business) I have realized two things: When I come home I intend on seeing all my friends back home I never have time to see all […]


Making Out

by Patrick on November 2, 2008

Tweet Make out bandit. That’s what I think when I read this blog post I found on The Best Places to Make Out in Washington DC. It’s an interesting list and it may become a goal of mine for 2009. All I can say is kissing is fun and it’s always more fun to make […]


Late Night Jumbo Slice

by Patrick on March 2, 2008

Tweet In my two years of living in the DC area there few definitively DC things that I haven’t done. One of them is the late night jumbo slice. Pizza Mart in Adam’s Morgan is the place to line up after your drunken haze in a club or bar. For a few dollars you receive […]


Missed Connections

by Patrick on February 17, 2008

Tweet Lots of fun things happened this week on the Obama front. I met up with the lovely Wendi on Tuesday and we had a nice happy hour at Recessions- where the beers are cheap and huge. I was excited to vote in Tuesday’s Virgina primary- I’m happy to know that I helped Obama sweep […]
