Yesterday the left side of my jaw started to hurt. Nothing debilitating, but a dull pain every time I open my mouth widely. Add this to the continual hip problems and my genetic woes, you’ll understand why I’m struggling a bit today.
Last night I joined a group of hashers at Eclipse di Luna (Buckhead) (fwiw – that appears like Andrea in the photo for Park Place) for a birthday party. I believe that a good time was had by all. To say that we were the last to leave was an understatement. We ordered more drinks when our lovely Eastern European waitress Silviyia made last call, and then staff had to all-but kick us out so that they could clean and set up for a private party today. For dinner I had the beef ribs, which were delightful, and an order of brussels sprouts with a spicy bean stew. The portions at Eclipse di Luna are “tapas”-sized but I thankfully didn’t require a third (small) plate of food.
The biggest detriment of Eclipse di Luna is the noise. The place was packed. There was a live band. The acoustics in the room made the noise continually bounce throughout the space. While I was positioned nicely to see a table of attractive girls out for a bachelorette party, you could imagine wasn’t the quietest table in the room however.
A Big Weekend Ahead
Tonight starts the first of the three Big Weekends of December for me. Tonight’s plans are up in the air, but I could easily find myself pounding a beer or two at Taco Mac. Tomorrow, in addition to making myself look a little better, I’ll probably be headed to the Drunken Unicorn for the Kathryn Calder show. And Sunday, in addition to doing some laundry, I’ll be headed to the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club for the Gingerbread Trailer Contest. (fwiw, if you go to the Yacht Club website you can see a profile of ITP-Reader Betsy holding a PBR. ;))
Oh, and I’ll be writing code too of course.
And oh yeah, Sunday night the finale of The Amazing Race airs! It’ll be fun to see them go around Atlanta, though last night I was depressed to think that my desire to be a guy that hands the contestants their next clue could have been fulfilled this past summer but was not…
