june fifteenth

Five for June 15th:

Parenthood. A combination of Jane coming down with a fever out of nowhere, a newborn that wants to eat 24 hours a day, constant threats of rain, and oppressively muggy temperatures all weekend made for a pretty exhausting couple of days. Alas, it’s all totally worth it.

Free lunch. Who says there’s no such thing? Company anniversary lunch today. All you can eat BBQ and other randomness. Keep your plate.

Jeff Grosso. New season of Grosso’s Loveletters to Skateboarding started up recently and the latest crop of episodes have been awesome, which is no surprise. Hands down one of the best things on the Internet.

Cool stuff. Friday night flatland, Sunday morning skate sesh at JB, Golden Grahams, Kink BMX East Coast Road Trip, smokehouse almonds.

The Loop. Construction on the pointless, gimmicky “Loop trolley” officially kicked into full gear over the weekend, with a full lane of already-congested Delmar closed and a parking lane converted to handle the rest of the traffic. I am all for public transportation, but this thing is a fucking travesty that is putting the last nail in the coffin for any level of cool-factor the Loop may have still had.
