Laid back

iPhone: Sunset at Jiffy Lube Pavillion

The Kings of Leon show Saturday night was completely laid back, pretty much the exact opposite of luxurious… or satisfying. Seeing them play the night after Spoon and Arcade Fire wasn’t fair though; those were impossible acts to follow.

iPhone: Ring in a cup

I loved the colors in this shot of a friend’s wedding band at the bottom of his cup of beer.

Friday at Merriweather

iPhone: View from the lawn

This was the only sort of play I was interested in Friday night. Arcade Fire. Spoon. Summer night.

We, the Pizza

iPhone: Simple Cheese and Very, Very Sour Cherry soda

Comfort food was too good to pass up last night when I walked by the recently opened We, the Pizza and saw there was not a line. The place has been mobbed since it opened to much fanfare, and I had resigned myself to waiting to check it out. The pizza was really good, but it is the soda bar I will come back for. The Very, Very Sour Cherry soda I ordered was a tart, delicious dessert in a cup.

Flashpoint preview

Mann installing his show

Matthew Mann took a break from work today to give us a preview of his show opening Friday night at Flashpoint Gallery. The show, titled “The Cinecitta Chapel,” opens this Friday at 6pm. The paintings I saw included a lot of clever, subtle details that were often funny. Check the show out if you can.

Sweet, sweet Potenza

Dessert menu

After a pork orgy on Sunday, I swore I would eat healthier this week. That lasted approximately 17 hours. The best laid plans… get blown to pieces in the face of a tasting menu at Potenza. Not pictured here, but so good I can’t let an opportunity to mention them pass, the cocktail popsicles we also got the chance to try. Please, go have one. Immediately.

Blustery

Rainy day weather

Between pigging out on pork today, we dodged brief bursts of rain and blustery winds. Since we were a mere half-mile from where Anna took this shot, I wonder if the weather gods dislike pig roasts.

Pool party

Should look more like this, and less like this. Anna, we need to get you some fun this week.
