I had such a nice weekend. The ride up with Andrew, Bojangles, the river, the dogs, the show, the Whig. Aside from someone telling the bartender that they “knew for a fact” that I’m 19, when, in fact (!) my 21st was last month. Silly shit. Other than that, I had an excellent time with some of the best people you could ever hope to meet.
