Ever just end up at a railway yard in the middle of the night borrowing a strangers charger? This weekend had a bunch of twist and turns, but the amazing weather was more than enough to get out and have some fun. After visiting Corey in the morning. Me, Mike Schultz, and Sweeney decided to go skate and drink some beers.
Getting booze near this spot was tricky. I remember seeing a group of people nearby watch a man hose blood off the sidewalk a few years back, so the neighborhood can get sketchy from time to time. Bunch of homies met up to skate and talk shit, and afterwards we grabbed some meat to grill at Mike's. In a stoned haze, we ended up at Reggie's to deliver Mike's awesome fiance, Jacki, some food.
I took a cab to go see Chance The Rapper's "Magnificent Coloring World" which was held at a warehouse. It was basically a listening party, but the space was decked out with jump houses, slides, walls to draw on, and other fun shit. Did I mention the beer? There was a lot of that too. Between double fisting and smoking weed I thought it'd be a great idea to call my friend who works nearby for a railroad company.
"Dude, I'm fucked up and I don't want to get back on this god damn school bus"
"... What the fuck are you talking about, dude?"
"I'm at a show near you, can you pick me up?"
"Fuck yeah. I'm gonna take lunch and scoop you up."
Turns out, his work wasn't near me at all. I also couldn't walk out front because the staff was trying to herd a crowd of drunken assholes onto a fleet of buses. After getting yelled at a few times for trying to walk down an alleyway, I just tagged along with a group of people no one seemed to be bothering. Once out front, I pissed on a car while the school buses full of people passed by.
My friend took me back to his job where I met all of his coworkers, who were confused by a dressed up dork showing up and smoking one hitters behind a trailer. He clocked out, and took me to grab a late night snack before being dropped off at Mike and Jacki's place.
Needless to say, I felt like dog shit the morning after. But a quick morning session at Burnham helped with the headache. I met up with friends for lunch, and afterwards went to hang with Rizzle. He's been slanging drinks at this nice bar called Bangers & Lace, if you're ever over in the area check it out. We hit up Wilson and met up with people for a few beers after.
After walking all over the city eating everything from fruit, burgers, and ice cream, I'm finally spent. Stoked to shoot more photos for y'all, hoping to hang on the beach with friends soon as well.
