basically though, i had one of the best weekends ever.
Friday Alyssa & Shawn came in, Stephen came in, and Tara & Brian came in. We went to the city museum and acted like children [some more than others haha]. Saturday we went to Blueberry Hill for lunch and walked around the Loop before going up to the arena for the hockey game. Obama was here on Saturday too and though I would have loved to go, I figured it would be best not to since I had a house full of guests and the crowd downtown was ridiculous [see below].
The game was INCREDIBLE. The suite was fantastic, everyone got along and seemed to have a great time. The game was very exciting and there was a fight in the stands right below our suite which added to the atmosphere. I definitely drank wayyy more than usual and there were some HILARIOUS moments - but overall it was just so awesome. Here is a picture after the game that the food/beverage lady took for us haha. There are about 4 or 5 drunkards in the picture. This was before the beer fiasco before the elevator, which i may or may not write about later.
After the game we went to the casino where I played a little but not much and Alyssa spilled coffee on her pants, Shawn won some money, Stephen lost some money and Brian hit a wrong button on a slot machine haha.
Stephen left really early on Sunday and Tara and Brian left in the afternoon. The rest of the night was just spent relaxing for the most part with Alyssa and Shawn. Went and saw a horrible movie in the theater and then watched the Tampa/Boston game that we dvr'd.
There really is so much more that I'm not writing about and leaving out a lot of details but that's alright. All that matters is that the weekend was one of the best I've had in a very long time.
Here's a quote about the Obama rally here.
"Barack Obama attracted 100,000 people at a Saturday rally here, his biggest crowd ever at a U.S. event."
Thats pretty crazy if you ask me. Here is a slideshow from it [obviously not mine]:
I sure do miss living downtown. I say it all the time, but it would have been fucking incredible to see the sea of people from our old living room.
