>What a great weekend. On top of our usual Saturday Errands, which this weekend involved out monthly trek over to Sam’s club in NY, we made a small pit stop to meet 2 fabulous friends for lunch.
So we met Walt and his hubby Ken just about 2 years ago in NYC as part of a group gathering. We have since then kept in touch via Facebook and our mutual blogs.
So after much cajoling and finally putting all the right things in place and much discussion, we finally made it happen and had a wonderful lunch meeting the 4 of us.
Walt was every bit the great guy I remembered from so long ago! And contrary to popular belief his husband Ken is a pretty nice guy as well.
Since Walt and Ken live in Albany, and we live in Danbury, the most logical place to meet was Hyde Park NY at the Eveready Diner. My hubby and I first heard of this great diner when it was showcased on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on the Food Network. And if it is good enough for Guy then hell it must be good enough for us.
So all in all the food and the Company we kept made for a great day all around. Later that night we attended our friends monthly game night where I was able to break in the new Scattegories game I bought for the occasion, and promptly lost the over game, but had some wins a couple of the rounds.
Next weekend is our friends monthly game night. In honor of this monthly shindig I have started listening to a new podcast Game Night Guys I plan on getting their reviews and picking up some new games for the gang to play! The first one I am going to be on the lookout for is Scattegories. I think this game would do very well with the crazy bunch of homos (and some straights) that play each month.
The following weekend we will be back in NYC to visit a couple friends who will be in town for the weekend. Haven’t seen them in forever and looking forward to some adult beverages and good company.
Then the next 2 weekends wrap up the Drum Corps parade season with 2 Convention parades.
So back to the Big Gay Cruise of 2010. The hubby and I and 2 other friends have planned our vacation (rather late this year) for Thanksgiving Weekend. We booked a fabulous room on the Celebrity Solstice (first time on this ship and Celebrity in general). This will also mark our first time booking with a group.
This won’t be an all gay cruise (not sure we could do that) but a group of gays traveling under the Pied Piper Travel group. From what I have read this looks to be one fabulous trip! Will report more on that as it gets closer and more details come out.
So I will wrap this up for now as the anticipated email has just arrived here at the office. Closing at 2! Happy Labor Day Indeed!
