March 17: St. Patty's Day @ Slater's 50/50 and More

Nothing says St. Patty's Day more than a Drake song.

Drake - Where To Now

Alright a year ago I was doing hikes and getting into shape. My attempt to get back into shape before Coachella are failing miserably! I was actually doing pretty well up until this night occurred where I basically ate like it was going to be my last meal. Beers, burgers, blueberry donuts, and some morning-after egg scrambles. Yeah, I gained about 4 lbs that weekend... Worth it? Not if I have to be Alex's slave...

That night's forecast: 100% raining men. Total dudes night out with my brosephs.

Green Stella

They ran outta Guinness though!

Shuffleboard! I need one of these at home.

Vampire dip. #TeamJacob?

Combo appetizer plate.

Slater's 50/50 March Burger of the Month: Corned Beef & Guinness Burger
Ground beef mixed with corned beef, topped with sauerkraut, crispy hash browns, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and sharp cheddar cheese on a brioche bun.

They screwed up and gave me a 2/3 lbs instead of 1/3. Easily 50% of my weight gain.

Chow down.

Then we headed over to Danny K's for some more shuffleboard pool.

(Stupid private party...)


Burbank bros x Fitzpatrick bros x Mo bros

We were gonna call it a night, but it felt so early. Time to get fatter at M&M Donuts.

Yep a drive-thru line and window line. Waited over an hour. In the rain.

But look at how happy we were! That glaze was still melting on those freshly fried 'nuts!

Good times guys.

And an encore: Brian and I grabbed lunch with Evita before she left for Honduras.

Rutt's Hawaiian Cafe!

POG! I fell in love with this drink in Hawaii 17 years ago...

(Passion Orange Guava)

Half-eaten french toast.

Still looks good to me.

Original Royale Egg Scramble: 3 eggs, portuguese sausage, chinese pork, and a sweet roll.

Probably the other half of my weight gain...

Want more Dilla? I almost used this song for the post in honor of those sweet, circular, delectable delights.

March 11: Lakers vs Celtics

I was on the fence about even going to this game only because I forgot I had the tickets... And by the time that I decided to go, I couldn't even find anyone to go with!! Luckily at the last minute, Brian agreed to go (and it was his first basketball game too!). What an awesome game. The Lakers had an early lead, but Boston kept coming back and even had the lead in the 4th quarter. But in the last few minutes of the game, Kobe and Bynum hit some critical baskets to obtain and solidify the lead. This will probably be the last time we'll see the same role players from that epic 7-game 2010 NBA Finals series... AND THE LAST HOME GAME FOR FISHER!! Jesus. (I'll be welcoming Fisher on March 29th when we play the Thunder though!)

Sunday Whites

If anyone knows where I can get a Fisher "Los Lakers" jersey, I will be forever grateful.


The jello's jigglin! Final score: Lakers 97, Celtics 94,

Brian's first Laker game was a doozy. Yay brudders!

And on our way out, one of the attendants just handed us a stack. FREE TACOS!

March 09: Christy's Birthday @ Crocker Club

After a delicious dinner at Bao Dim Sum in Hollywood (some pictures here), we headed over to Crocker Club in DTLA to celebrate Christy's birthday. I think it's been a while since we've been to a club (not bar) that plays mostly hip hop music, but I'm always down to check new spots out. And I think Alex rapped 3 or 4 different songs. "I only know the words to 1 rap song..." LIAR! Someone in the group also got lucky with an urbanite. #UntoldStories.

Happy birthday Christy!

BBC picture! Look here!

Thanks bitches...

Kat and Brian gettin' their swerve on!

Someone remind me what we just pinky swore on...

Sneaker Pickups

I haven't done this in a while... But I got too many pairs recently to not do this!

Up first are the Beatnic 10th anniversary dunks. Only 24 pairs made. They're the pine green/atom red SBs with lasered heels, custom BTNC lace locks, and a commemorative box.

Next we have the Kobe 7 Invisibility Cloaks, given the name due to the iridescent purple to green colorway. I didn't like the Kobe 7 too much personally, but I had to hop on this pair.

And lastly we have the Kobe Koston SB. With Koston being a long-time Laker fan and recent addition to the Nike SB team, Nike released this Kobe 6-inspired colorway. I was pissed I missed the original release, but very happy to finally end up with a pair!

And here's a bonus pic of the new Jomo beer cozy courtesy of Mr. Smith. I really want to try this beer! Thanks again Jamie.

March 02: Eileen & D-Ko's Classy 27th @ Exchange LA

Bingo Players – L’Amour (Original Mix)

Bingo Players – L’Amour (Original Mix)

I missed the party last year due to the Dudezalike cabin trip, so I made sure that I wasn't going to miss this year's festivities. I wasn't disappointed. It's been a while since we had everyone all together and had a good old fashioned sh*tshow. I can easily say that more than 50% of the crew was drunk or worse, including myself. I wasn't going to let what happened to me 2 years ago happen to me again though. Overall a good night!
Happy birthday Eileen and Diana!

Try and guess who got the drunkest.

Everyone passing the champagne around.

It's not El Flaming Taco, but this bacon ultimate cheeseburger on sourdough with an egg was absolutely money.
