This weekend was yet another adventure in Twistedland! After getting a terrific night's sleep (considering Tessa and I passed out at 11....on a Friday night - damn, we're getting old!), we got up Saturday and hit Borderlands comics so I could pick up a hardback copy of Marvel Zombies Vs. Army of Darkness!
We then went down the road to the Irish Pub for our cornhole tournament as a part of Test Fest. The turnout was fantastic despite the heat....and the fact that Tessa and I can't play cornhole worth a crap!
After getting our butts kicked by two different teams (one being the station's own team of Tyler and Shelley from promotions who sucked almost as bad as we did where we'd go several rounds without either team scoring any points) we moved on down the road again to the Carolina First Center for the Top of the Hops beer festival.
Before even hitting any of the beer stands, my eye caught the Weather Channel booth where you could do your own on-site weather report....FOR FREE!!!! Needless to say, I could NOT turn that down! Check it out!
Ok, I know it's bad so, don't worry, I'm not giving up my day job!
Saturday night I met up with my best friend Kenny and his friend Colleen since they were in town from Atlanta. We ended up returning to the Irish Pub since we used to always hang out there back when it was called Woodchuck's. They ended up crashing at our apartment and we went and grabbed brunch together Sunday at IHOP before they headed back to Atlanta.
We then went down to Hollywood 20 to catch Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in RPX! I gotta say that I was very impressed considering I wasn't thrilled with the second and third films in the franchise. As a matter of fact, I would dare say that it's the best installment yet since it was at least as good as The Curse of the Black Pearl!
