This past weekend was of course Father’s Day, which is one of two days out of the year where I get to do pretty much whatever I want. Since I have a very nice wife and two pretty cool kids, I spent the entire weekend rockin’ in the key of awesome. Friday night was a trip downtown to the Buell for some grub and to watch Rock of Ages. Rather than go somewhere foofoo, we got our eat on at Sam’s No. 3, a diveish old school coffee shop. After a couple of giant beers and a 1/2 burger, we walked over to the show.
Rock of Ages was a really good time. Basically, its Mamma Mia except instead of Abba and some chick trying to figure out which guy is her pop, its 80s hair bands and buttrock (Journey, Styx, Whitesnake, Quiet Riot, etc) telling the story of two kids looking for fame and fortune on the Sunset Strip. Good tunes, weak, loose story, a handful of jokes you’d probably only get if you grew up in LA in the 80s. Basically an all around good time.
Saturday was chillin’ at the house, doing the home burrito bar and watching a couple of Ahhnuld flicks that only I would like (The Running Man and True Lies) and Sunday was a family outing to catch Super 8 (really good flick btw) followed by more food and a crazy homemade chocolate chip cookie cake with chocolate frosting, cream cheese and peanut butter chips on top. So, not even a 5 mile run closing in on my best time could stop me from putting some poundage back on.

Oh, and apparently Allison Fisher won the US Open. I’ll talk about that another time.
