Wife and I spent the New Year in New York, visiting some old pals. The highlight of the trip was seeing Ann Hamilton's installation at the Park Avenue Armory. It was a breathtaking piece that pulled you out of the Upper East Side and deposited you elsewhere. It ends this week, but if you're in New York and have time, by all means go see this.
I spent this past weekend up in Wisconsin - Saturday in Madison, and Sunday in Elkhorn at a friend's lake house. We ate meat, drank beer, sat by the fire, and shot a bb gun... a lot. A perfect fall weekend.
Took a road-trip this past weekend to Edina, Missouri pop. 1,176. It's an awesome tiny little town in north-east Missouri, and happens to be where Erin's grandmother calls home. We visited for the annual Cornfest where we took in the parade of tractors, ate fried tenderloins and competed at a championship level in bingo, turtle racing and cow-chip bingo. It was all awesome, and I look forward to the 2013 fest.
This past weekend, I was able to hop down to the brand new Washington Park and check out the first installment of the City Flea in its new OTR home. The park is incredible, and the City Flea was as bustling as ever. I snapped some photos, but couldn't stay long, I had a Reds game to get to.
