The Weekend

Pin It now! Having an extra day off today for MLK Jr. Day is fabulous.  The weekend felt extra long and we were able to get a lot done.  On Saturday, after doing loads of laundry, hubby and I made our way to Brooklyn Brewery to meet up with his co-worker.  The brewery is great - it holds tours and also has a bar area where you get all of their different beers.  (My favorite - the pilsner!)  We arrived there around 4pm, but it seemed that many of the people there had been there since the brewery opened at noon.  There were a few tables that were making pyramids out of the plastic cups they had from all the beer they drank.  We then met up with the French and a couple of other friends at Brooklyn Bowl around the corner from the brewery.  Have you been there?  It's a huge bowling alley with a concert stage, big bar and a restaurant with food by Blue Ribbon.  The waiting list for bowling was three hours long!  While we waited, we watched performers try to get through every Beatles song (over two days) performing with a guy on a ukulele and then grabbed dinner at Sea Thai.  Three hours later (literally!), we made it back to the bowling alley and finally bowled.  I did terrible (terrible!) our first two games - I bowled a 33 our second game!  I made a comeback in game three but of course we ran out of time and couldn't finish the entire game.  Hubby, with his hurling style beat, everyone each game and the other ladies bowled like champs.

We made it home in time to watch one of the funniest SNL digital shorts with Andy Samberg and Pee Wee Herman.

Yesterday, we went furniture shopping!  We're looking for the perfect couch, but choosing just one is not as easy as it seems.  Here's our first choice, the Greenwich Sofa from Pottery Barn:

I know I haven't posted any photos of the new apartment.  Patience my darlings.  They're coming.
