Fridaynight

I went out to eat with Lena and my parents..
We took them to Teejay's to celebrate my one year of Sobriety, my moms treat.
we sat at the traditional japanese table where you have to take your shoes off.
it was nice and comfy and the food was good as always..
Sorry about the lighting, The first picture was the monster roll, and the lobster samba on the right..
both were good, and we also enjoyed a boat for two which was great also.

lotsofcycling.

This weekend the weather was pristine for biking conditions, there was little to no wind and it was sunny and beautiful outside so I took advantage of the situation and did some cycling


 first stop on Saturday PaneDolce Italian Bakery off A1A and Oakland Pk.
Second stop was Ft. Lauderdale beach.


Third was Las Olas, the Floridian in frnt of a Mark Vose Mural.
 Stop number 4 was Lighthouse Point

then I trecked up to Deerfield beach was maybe another 10 miles up the road or a little less
Saturday I totaled 43 miles of riding then on Sunday I did like 22 miles
I made it up the 17 St. Bridge, went up then down the other side going around 35 mph on the way down
then went back up it and down the other side heading North again.
went down Las Olas again..

Then it was back home... Great weekend itwas.

LENASBDAY





On Friday night, I took Lena out for her Birthday Dinner...We chose Thai Spice.

Another restaurant that is not even a mile away from my apartment. We also chose Thai Spice
because they mailed Lena a birthday jewpon, buy one entree get the second free..I was all over that shit. So we started off with some apps. We had some tuna tar tar, and some oysters in a coconut milk...they were some of the most succulent oysters I hav ever had with no sand in them or anything, they were as soft as butter. Then we had some blue crab coconut soup, which was another special selection, this soup was delicious with at least 5 blue crab claws floating in it...
For the main courses, Lena chose a crunchy ginger grouper, which was amazing, and I had some lamb chops that had some chili sauce on them, they were cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. Love Thai Spice.... a little pricey but worth every penny!

This place is a hiddem gem. Well not that hidden but it is fresh, with a clean bamboo interior
and new with spicy fresh dishes, I dined with the rents once again on Saturday night @ yet
another spot close to my home. It is located one block west of A1A on Commercial Blvd. Started off with some crispy calamari and shrimp app which was fresh and crunchy with a super spicy dipping sauce. For my main I had the crispy beef dish which consisted of a bed of crispy noodles topped with beef and veggies and a light sauce atop It was really good, was not lacking in  the flavour department. My pops had the same dish but with seafood, and my momz had a salmon dish with rice and veggies, she had said it was some of the best salmon she has ever had. Going there again later...

FRESHPAINT NYC



Over 400 eye-popping photos provide a decade-long tour of graffiti in New York City. Walls, trucks, and subway cars are featured with graffiti by the crews X-Men, KD, TNB, 156, RIS, AOK, TC-5, FAME CITY, COD, XTC, TFP, MCI, IF, DYM, 718, TD4, SMART, TATS CRU, FLY-ID, GFR, AKB, and many more. Because New York City has made a concerted effort to remove graffiti from the city, the images captured here will never be seen again. Walls were repainted and some buildings were demolished, keeping graffiti crews working fast to keep ahead of the trend. The author worked even faster to capture their ephemeral efforts. If you have a fascination with urban life and colorful expression, this book is definitely for you.

R.I.P. GURU



Funny how the way I found out about his death was on fb, by some people who probably didn't even listen to his music back in the day. Buncha bandwagon jumpers. I grew up with hip hop music and it was my way of life for a majority of my early years, GURU will go down in history as one of the true classic legends of Hip Hop Music. RIP

DADADELRAY


Saturday night I got invited by my friend Jane to accompany her as her date to a
birthday party for one of her co-workers at Dada in Delray. I got introduced to all of the
people she works with who were all very pleasant and comforting people...So we all sat and dined in a private room at DADA. I actually did allot of print work for this place over the past years at work and never had the chance to actually go to the place. It's funky and cool, an old house transformed into an artsy restaurant, with a bunch of inked up employees. So we sat for dinner and had to select our eats from a minimized menu for the party. They started us off with some cheese fondue with bread, fruit and veggies which was pretty good and we also had some Mediterranean appetizers with tabouli, pita and keftedes.I opted for the guava chicken for the main course, it was basic with broccoli, mashed potatoes and some light gravy, and some guava sauce for dipping the chicken. For some reason I expected something different but it was ok. I got to try Jane's pasta dish which was pretty delightful with some thick cream sauce on top. All in all my experience there was ok., I would probably have to go back there and eat something off the main menu to give it a thumbs up. After dinner the party moved down the street to Delux, a night club off Atlantic. The dj was playing some good dance music and the  all of ladies were dancing and had a great time. Thanks Jane! and all of your supercool friends/co-workers..

I picked up mini me on Friday on my way home from work, and that's the same night we joined Lena, Denise and Wes to see Kick Ass. Saturday morning I went for my usual bike trip and when I got back Chris and I walked over to Denny's for some grub, I had an egg white omelet and he had a grand slamwich with some chocolate milk. After we walked back from Denny's We drove over to Pearl's for some additional markers to do some graffiti on the gloomy day.
Saturday Night we went over to my friend Jane's in Boca and before we got there stopped for some subway, Chris got to play with Jane's kids Gage and Grace while me and Jane went out for a birthday party dinner which was fun. Chris behaved and I had a great weekend hangin with him.

KICKASS




Wow. I really had my doubts about this movie and I didn't even want to go see it because I thought it was some stupid kids movie. I had it all wrong. This rated R flick is exactly as titled "KICK ASS", It was fuckin awsome. The little 11 yr old "hit girl" stole the show. She had some great adult oriented lines during the film. The violence was also a plus because it was funny as it was grusome. go see this filM it is a must see and Im sure this will be another cult classic

TATTOOSUNDAY




video
Sunday was a gloomy rainy day in sunny South Florida, and I happened to have an appointment
to get my sleeve worked on again. Made the trek West to Coral Springs to Colorfast Studios.
where Vince (the owner) finished up some cherry blossoms near my elbow... Slowly but surely this tattoo is getting done...Just wish it was more fast like the name in the logo COLORFAST. :)
anyways it's always fun getting tattooed by a friend and one who makes you laugh while you are in pain.

RUSTICINN





What a treat. I never go to Rustic in unless I have family in from New York or if it's my father's birthday, and Lena has never been there, also wanted to celebrate my almost 1 full year of sobriety. Rustic in oh how I have missed you so much, We started off with a dozen oysters with the horseraddish and cocktail sauce, daaaam fkn goooood!. We ordered another dozen some of the best oysters I have ever had hands down. Then it was down to the Alaskin Kingz! which are pre-sliced in halfs so you have to do no work at all just get the meat and eat.
Lena got the crab leg sampler which has garlic crabs, alaskin queen legs, and some other ones that I forgot. Garlic crabs were the best of the sampler for sure. What other way to end that meal but with some Key lime pie, we shared a nice slice of cool refreshing key lime pie, doesnt get any better then this!!  if it does let me know...Oh yea I almost forgot being the JEW that I am I got a IN the BIZ discount because I mentioned that I made their drink menu... -$25...
JEWDAT!

NIGHTOFFAIL


OK So me Lena and Denise went out Friday looking to have some fun so we thought we'd try Boomers in Dania. So we got in the area and wanted to eat something and we went to Dave and Busters. What a mistake, D&B is nothing but DINING FAILure.  Denise had some ranch dressing spilled all over her foot by a stupid ass waiter and I ordered a steak that tasted like a fuckin shoe with sweet sauce on top. It's like a walmart style fridays. D&B SUCKS!.
We did end up getting a discounted check for the mishap with the ranch dressing though...

After the shittiest dinner I've had in months we drove across the street to Boomers.
this place is the worst. Half the games inside do not work, It smelled like backseat of an old ass caprice and the atmosphere was just SHIT. After we attempted to find some games that worked we made it out to the put put course. It was dark, and everything looked like kendall after the eye of hurricane andrew just hit. After that we made it to the cart track, and this actually was fun,. the go carts aren't super fast but the course is long and you can drift around the turns.
Glad that was fun because everything else was such a dissapointment.
