The fifth of May

I went with LK and Rich to see Non-Stop to Cairo open for Badfish at a bar out on Long Island for Cinco de Mayo. I have known the guys from Non-Stop for years and you may recognize the drummer (or not, since he's so shadowy) as my friend Dave who I went to Istanbul with. I'd never seen Badfish but I'm glad I did. They're a pretty awesome Sublime cover band, and Sublime is one of my ALL TIME favorite bands forever and ever and ever. My entire adolescence can be summed up in a soundtrack consisting heavily of Sublime songs.
So we went, we drank, we danced. It was marvelous, and around here May 5th is an excuse to go have some fun, regardless of your Mexican heritage. It's pretty silly, but its also been a really great week for me so just go with it. After I was 5 Corona Lights deep and I danced myself into a dreamless coma before I even had a chance to finish my midnight bowl of rice.
I'm not sure who's hand is behind LK's head since I'm holding a beer...Penguin Revolution with Auggie and Nick from Non-StopNon-Stop to Cairo, go check them out.
This is what I wore to work Thursday before deciding that my sweater was wrinkly and my new tee shirt is too big and I needed to change before going out.
Paul&Joe Sister shirt via Gilt gift certificate, AA skirt, BDG (on super sale but now I regret it cause its wrinkly) sweater, Lucky boots, Halogen purse

  8. Love your boots and outfit! :)

    I write snippets for thumbtack.com. You may be familiar with the site or not and it's work at home. I'm required to work 40hrs per week which is on top of my office life. Not bad really.

  9. I was going to suggest that maybe Rich was holding the beer, but he probably doesn't wear blue nailpolish... ; ) I want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo! Love the t-shirt too.

  10. but that tee is adorable! The print. White is a dangerous color to wear to a show tho, probably smarter you changed.

    Sublime is such a blast from the past, it must have been so much fun dancing to those tunes

  22. I love this birdie t-shirt! And I just went to check out Nonstop to Cairo because I, too, love Sublime. They're really good! Do you listen to Streetlight Manifesto? They're one of my super favorites and I think you might like them.
