Friday Night Adventure

Posted in Celebration by Joel Gross

Last night I was feeling a little bit cooped up from the winter, so I decided to go on an adventure with Plato.

Turned out to be a fine adventure indeed, featuring the world’s largest mixed drink, a tasty dinner, dodgeball at Cal Anderson Park, various Capitol Hill bars and a hipster fight.

Plato and I started out by having a nice big dinner featuring gorgonzola and mandarin salad, honey pepper chicken thighs and two bottles of the finest wines from my collection.

Fletch is a joke

Plato is a tad sarcastic. But look at how good that food is! Yum, my cooking skills are improving.

The wine above was way too sweet. Gross.

joel needs to clean

My apartment is desperately in need of a deep cleaning. I’ll probably do that today.

My face is still hugely swollen on the right from my root canal, but it fortunately doesn’t hurt. I just look a little goofy.

world's largest grape & vodka cocktail

For our trip, I mixed up the world’s largest grape & Smirnoff vodka well drink. Put in a liter and a half of grape juice and half of a half gallon of vodka and you’re good to go. Plato and I brought this on our walk over to Capitol Hill to play dodgeball. From my apartment, it’s probably about a mile and a half to Cal Anderson park and Plato and I took a very meandering route.

The king and I await our coach (elevator).

I tried to take an artsy delayed capture photo, but I had no tripod and my hands wobbled lol.

Plato observes the poor.

Dodgeball at Cal Anderson Park. Apparently dodgeball happens there every Tuesday and Friday. Around 50-70 people showed up and it was tons of fun.

Plato made a friend… and her angry jealous boyfriend was 3 feet behind her lol. The guy walked outside in a huff and she wanted to keep talking to us, but Plato and I had much better things to do.

At Lindas, there is always this little tiny old asian man who plays pool every Friday night and is very talented. I managed to beat him soundly and Plato and I ended up running the table for around an hour. Later, we went and got beef tongue tacos, mozzarella sticks, chicken and a pitcher. My kind of night.

End of the night; Plato walked back to his studio in the University District and I walked back to mine in Pioneer Square.
