Painting The Town Red Wine

5 Apr

I’d like to take a minute to dedicate this post to all the people I’ve ever fallen asleep on while out at a party. To all the people who I told I was “just going home to change first” before heading out to a bar, and then turned off my phone and fallen asleep on. To all the haters who said I’d never make it out past 10:30 p.m.

This posts for you.

This is Him and I. On a roof. At Bathurst and Bloor. AFTER MIDNIGHT ON  FRIDAY.

All week we’ve been trying to make more of an effort to hang with people. He and I have more friends than we know what to do with, and we realized that if you don’t use ’em, you lose ’em.

Mid-week we hit up our friend Shira’s steam room in her condo with La Mode Au Naturelle and DJ Poppin’ Fresh for some steamin’ and wine drinking.

Friday we had even bigger plans. My friend Laura came over and we rambled about better days gone by aka drinking Baby Duck in hotel room on a P&CC managers getaway and taking pictures like these:

From there we headed down to our friend Whitlow’s abode for some partying, first making a stop at the Wine Rack because I forgot the bag sitting on the chair in the hall that contained everything we wanted to bring. The guy there was super helpful though. Thanks for showing us the cheapest, biggest possible bottle to get – and cold to boot!

We all chilled and some more good friends visited soon. It was odd – one of Whitlow’s roomates looks a lot like Him. So much so that His first memory of the two of us is actually a memory that I thought took place with the lookalike dude. Crazy. They were sitting next to each other all night – it’s a good thing I didn’t get confused. That could have ended badly. Or, like a great TV show episode!

We went up this shifty (literally) ladder to the room and had an amazing view of the city. Bathurst and Bloor is hopping at night and we could see so much of this city – it was killer.

Saturday. Couples Dinner Party time – what what! The BFF and BF came up, laden with presents of moose meat and maple syrup. It was awesome! We had some lunch and then the boys did errands and the girls be shopping. Down to Kensington and all around time, making a point to stop at Bath & Body Works to scam some buy-3-get-3 body washes. I love that stuff! (If you go, and check out your receipt, make sure you call the number and answer the survey – it honestly takes two minutes and you don’t even have to talk to someone over the phone – it’s all automated. You get a code for $10 off your next purchase of $30 – pretty sweet deal.)

Anyways, during the day, both couples called to cancel on us. Seriously? Luckily it all worked out and my Co-worker and Liam’s friend came, and one of the original couples (an old roomate of His) + friend came. We had a great time. Lots of shiskabobs, lots of veg (even me), lots of wine, and lots of Apples to Apples, the best game made in the last few years. Fun night.
