My Saturday started out pretty standard. I woke up around 7am and laid in the bed until around 9 (I have a bad procrastinating issue), walked Petey, and checked out what was going on for the weekend.
Oh, the night before, I did a photoshoot at a surprise graduation party for my friend Ahmed. His wife, Brenda whom ice known since high school, did a great job setting it up and keeping it a secret. Here's a few shots I really liked. If you want to see the whole album, click HERE.
Seems I've become quite the photographer! I've come a very long way and it's all self taught. Youtube is a very powerful tool!
So I had to ease this longing I've been having for a BBQ pulled chicken sandwich from Central BBQ. There's just something about that one sandwich that really does it for me. I also had to have an order of there smoked jerk wings. They are really good and if you haven't tried them, you're missing out big time!
Disclaimer: The rest of the pics are from my iPhone 6 that has been through every imaginable tragedy....so yeah you've been warned!
The beer pictured is called Lovebird from Jackalope Brewery out of Nashville. It's brewed with strawberry and raspberries. It was pretty good.
I was explaining to a tourist how rude and disgusting it is to not have cole slaw on a BBQ sandwich, when my good friend Emily sent me the following text:
"Yo mikeychalupa. Bring yo ass to Silkys."
My hands were tied, so I had no choice but to go. I navigated the terrible downtown traffic (I'm sort of glad I didn't mov downtown now) and get to Silkys and I'm presented with this!
The diver is a concoction that had to be created by someone that hated people and wanted them to pass out on Beale St. It's a mix of beer and liquors in a bucket.
I made it about halfway before I felt like my stomach would explode from all the beer foam. I had to get the other thing I can only get at Silkys, the liquid marijuana drink.
My other friend Kathryn was there so the gang was in town missing 1, my spirit animal Claire. More people showed up and we planned a night of drinks, karaoke, and Raifords!
The next thing we know, there are 2 goats dancing around Silky's! people were feeding them and it was a very cool and weird experience. I've heard of the goats but this was my first time ever seeing them.
On a trip to the bathroom I noticed someone wrote their tag and IG name on the wall lol. Follow this guy! Mad props for branding placement! IG @Bashea_v
It was way to early for Raifords so we stopped by Coyote Ugly, which blew our buzz a little because they were playing sad country music. But nevertheless, Emily and I are good sports so we decided to have another quick drink anyways.
Then we got the worst news ever!! The place we wanted to go to sing karaoke had a band playing! The horror!! That's when I was done with the night. That and I had been patio pimping since 3pm lol. We went from a day of great highs only to be smacked in the face with the lowest of lows.
And that was the day. I was in the house by midnight.
Also Kathryn gave me a great idea. Writing about the random things on bathroom walls lol.
