Now Playing: Coldplay - Talk (Junkie XL remix)
After another whirlwind trip up to Rochester last weekend, which started ominously enough...I had Academy training all last week, capped off with a reception on Friday night after our presentations (our group won, go Team Exemplar) and had to go for at least one drink. But that pushed up against having to get to BWI for a 9pm flight. Hmmm, a drink with my group or leaving for the airport on time?
If you know me well enough you know that I didn't choose the latter...so I walked out of my apt. at 7:30 ready to get to BWI. Downtown D.C. (@ 7:30pm) for BWI (@ 9pm flight) meant pressure cooker but I was relaxed as I always am about traveling: go with the flow and you'll probably make the flight; there's always another flight anyways.
It was apartment packing and cleaning on Sat. and my final walk-through w/ the landlord at 5pm. Trevor helped me take care of the loose ends and Naomi gave me the seal of approval. Handed over the apartment keys and that closed another chapter (~2 years at Park Ave.) of my life. I liked that studio apt. and hopefully someone else likes it just as much so I can get out of my lease early without having to pay rent for March and April.
Then on to the fun, Sat. night at Lux. Had a great time w/ Greg, Leah, her friend (whose name currently escapes me, sorry), Robbie, and Trevor. How can you go wrong w/ $1.50 cans of PBR? The laid-back vibe inside, decor and music, coupled with even better company made for an awesome night. A little sad to be leaving Roch having finally visited a cool bar just as I'm leaving town. It was the perfect ending to my last weekend in Rochester. Right now I'd say it's Lux, Monty's (Krown or Corner) , and The Old Toad as my favorite bars in ROC.
It was Bush tonight and the Junkie XL remix of Coldplay's "Talk." Next week it's Feist (of Broken Social Scene fame, thanks KCRW) at the Black Cat. Interested in going, drop me a comment or email since I don't know many people in D.C. yet.
