happy day 2011

eli + i joined the day after thanksgiving all day drinking fest 
known as 'happy day'

we got to reno around 11am and met up with the group at chapel tavern
which was a perfect place to start

look at that accidental (+perfect) placement of duncan's head above

on the walk from chapel to shea's tavern we detoured and snuck into
craft, reno's new bottle shop

oh man!
it is so dope
and the owner was so friendly + charming
we sat at the bar and chatted with him
he gave us amazing local honey to try

then we made a big mistake...
we walked into the tiny little puppy adoption shop on our way to shea's
i should know better

 blurry at shea's tavern

we skipped the wild orchid this year 
and met back up with the group at public house
which is an AMAZING new bar with great beer
and such a good vibe

more photos of happy day here.

a sign of a good weekend 
kicking it off with orson

lexi birthday. dinner + sedaris

we arrived at the crest just as sedaris was wrapping up signing books. so he was alone at a table.
lexi and i went over and asked him if maybe he wouldn't mind taking a picture with us.
before he could even respond, his agent/gaygent ran over telling us about their firm no picture policy.
meanwhile, a woman walked right up, stuck her phone in david's face, and snapped a picture.
he was super annoyed, turned to us, and thanked us for at least being polite enough to ask and
not just taking a picture as if he were some statue. 
we felt really good about it. 
like in some weird way we had really impressed him.
we fantasized about asking him out for drinks afterwards.
like our politeness in picture-taking would win us an evening of laughs and drinks with him..
he is really cute. petite. and stylish.
he hates the word 'awesome'

and i'm still full from saturday's 'crock-off'
sunday morning walk

+ one of the many things i love about this weather is the only place 
the cats want to be is on our laps.
