Summer Birthdays - Atlantic City and Kickball

When I was 14 and first getting into the Aquabats, they never toured in Florida and then every time I lived somewhere else something happened and I missed them play. Once I saw 20th anniversary tour dates and NYC was on the list I bought a ticket IMMEDIATELY. They opened up with Martian Girl and my head exploded. woah woah woah woah woah

Waited over 10 years to dance to Pizza Day! THE BEST DAY OF THE WEEK!


My coworker couldn't make it to a yanks game, so he gave me his tix, it had an hour rain delay and then a beautiful rainbow appeared in the Bronx.

Jackie was my Yankee date. I'm a San Francisco Giants fan, but a lover of all baseball so any opportunity to go to the ball park I get, I take it! I never saw the Oakland A's when I was in the bay area so it was cool to see them play the Yanks.

I can smuggle a cheeseburger any where. Jeter is up!

Jackie has been wanting to go to Guy Fieri's restaurant for a long time and I refused to go with her. But it was her birthday... and I love birthdays, so we went. This is the only picture that will ever exist. Yes the food was terrible.

The Spicy Beef Roll at Gowasabi in Astoria is soo good. And I get that beef in a roll is odd, but with the seaweed salad inside it just works. PLEASE BELIEVE ME

We went to Atlantic City for Jackie's birthday! Her secret admirer sent choco strawberries and champagne!

Yay casino buffets!!

Channing Tatum got fat and works for Caesars AC now.

Gambling is fun! We put in $5!

Gambling is fun until it's not.

Extra heavy makeup for atlantic city! 

So many good casino games!!

Birthday Benihana time, u already kno

I got a call from Bank of America fraud team and they said that someone in Arizona tried using my debit card to buy a $100 giftcard at Walmart. He asked me how this could have happened, I said that I had just came back from Mexico and all my friend's got fraudulent charges. BOA DON'T PLAY!

I went to Boston to visit my cousins and Megan looks just like this card! Such a cute pregnant lady!

My cousin Nick posted up by some sweet segways. We did a segway tour of Boston! 

Nick got in trouble after taking this pic, the tour guide said we weren't allowed to use our phones while riding lol.

Check out this Motley Crue

Good to see my cousins in Boston! Thanks for the blueberry tart!

Happy Birthday Veronica!

Happy Birthday Ileana!

Happy Birthday Jeff!

Jeff lookin like a G in Benihana

I went thru the NY Parks and Recs Dept to get a 'special events' permit for my kickball birthday! I got headbands for everyone and at this moment I looked up and saw a bunch of cool kids eating pizza prepping for a good ole fashioned kickball game. I was stoked on everyone being stoked!!

Jessica brought her dog Minni, she became our mascot!

There was a bunt and I was stoked to grab it and peg Jackie, then I tripped and ate shit. We all had injuries after the game, things are different when you play kickball as a child vs 20something.

MY BIRTHDAY KICKBALL CREW. Love all yall

Jeff asked me if I remember Pizza Face.. I sure do Jeff. #AllThat

I had Capri Suns on deck!!!

Jackie was the other team captain!

We went to Hooters afterwards for drinks (it's close to central park, has outdoor seating, and their buffalo shrimp is so good!) Anyway this guy was on his laptop getting down on so many crab legs.

Thanks for the love Greg and Alex <3333

My sweet darling Janine came to NYC from Portland on my birthday weekend!

We had punch brunch at Front Toward Enemy in Astoria. It's unlimited punch as long as you have food to eat on your plate. I got the Full English Breakfast and it really came with a full vine tomato! I ordered the gin punch (versus the tequila punch) and was drunk after 3 bad boys (or was it 4?) and a belly full of yum yums.

We went to Madam Tussauds!!!! This is the 3rd Madam I've been to with Janine. We went to Vegas MT when Kiersten got married and San Francisco MT when I lived out there.

Jackie was reading with Hellen Keller

Yao Ming is a big dude

Jackie got me this for my birthday...I love 1 D... Insane 4 zayn

I got Jackie tix to Late Night with Seth Meyers show taping for her bday. 

Snuck this in before the show started. We were literally in the 1st row, luck of the draw! Seth is pretty chill in person.

My coworker Reegs is a Mets fan so we went to a game vs Texas Rangers. It was a last minute decision so we went to the first scalpers we saw. These dudes said they had seats behind home plate $40 for 2 tix and they just wanted to go in cuz they got these tix from a friend.. 2 good 2 be true? WELP IT WAS TRUE. We walked in right after them and were straight up 15th row behind home plate.

We ordered Shake Shack and beer from our seats and they delivered it so fast. CitiField is great!!
