On The Wagon
Whatta weekend. Thank god I'm back at work where we're not allowed to drink (usually). Let's recap:
Fri night--Platinum Blonde at Montebello Park. Just like the old days at the Bamboo Club in T.O. except Mark Holmes is no longer blonde. HTZ-FM Red is very tasty by the way. Off to the Mansion House for beers. Ran into ex-Blue Jays Kelly Gruber and Jesse Barfield. They were my favorite Jays back when I covered the team on a daily basis.
Sat aft--My 30th Anniversary class reunion from Radio and Television Arts at Ryerson. Luckily I wasn't the fattest guy there, but I did have the most hair. Pic: Wife meets Dave Devall who was inducted in the RTA Wall of Fame. A fellow alum and a great guy.
Sat night--Closed the Hard Rock Cafe on Yonge St. with Nick Walsh and Darryl (Dwarf) Millar. Nick's kicking ass in Famous Underground. Dwarf fronts Automan.ca. Pic: Three drunken amigos.
Sun night--Slash at The Sound Academy. Pretty much the same show as CMW. The joint was rammed. New band Foxy Shazam opened and blew the roof off. Pic: Ran into Russ Dwarf at the show and commented the FS lead singer reminded me of him 20 years ago. He kicked me in the nuts.
Weekend grand total: 10-20 beers, 2 glasses of wine, 3 laps around the Eaton Center and one splitting hangover. Most excellent.
