I can’t really say that I remember what time we woke up….I honestly cannot remember much details of today but whatever.
We woke up and relaxed at the house for a little bit as we weren’t sure what to do today. After all, we really only had Angels & Kings planned out, but we weren’t going to go there until at least the night. After watching it pour for a while, we decided to go to Hermosa Beach since we googled it and people said it was really pretty after the rain. So after picking up some stuff, we headed over there.
It was only about a half an hour trip and well, it was a nice area…and the first area that we went to that didn’t have credit card meters. It was certainly cold out here after the rain and the wind, but the things that you noticed the most were all the fucking. It being St. Patrick’s Day, and there seems to be a lot of Irish bars there, it was nothing but a flood of green. People wearing green t-shirts, hats, even dressing up like leprechauns. It was pretty cool, but also very loud as almost everyone there was drunk. After getting Starbucks, we looked around the pier area before we decided to get something to eat. First we tried this one restaurant, but it was so packed in there, we were never actually served. Not even water or anything, so we headed out to a less crowded bar. We chose a Mexican place since well, we seemed to be eating that a lot, and it wasn’t too bad. Since we only had a few quarters and no cash, we had to go back to the meter since we were that it was almost time or already expired.
We got to the car and saw that the meter indeed was expired, but thankfully we didn’t get a ticket. I don’t know it was because of the people or the weather or the fact that in order to stay longer, we’d have to take $20 out of an ATM and exchange it for quarters, but we soon headed out and went back home. I definitely needed to take a shower and get myself ready before we headed out since once we left, we weren’t going to come back before A&K.
After leaving, we passed by a certain someone’s house again where Billy decided to be a creeper and turn off the headlights as we passed, but after that we decided to head to Hollywood once more as we wanted to say goodbye to Blair. We hung out with him for a bit longer before he gave us our hugs and said that he might come out to Chicago. I also talked to one of his friends since he enjoys photography and film and what not.
Getting to Hollywood BLvd, we parked and headed to A&K, where we immediately got in and heard the music blaring. It was nice and dark in there and the setup was pretty fucking awesome. We got some $4 PBRs and sat down. The entire time of course I was looking for any musicians that I happen to like but well, unfortunately no one came there. That still didn’t hinder the amazing time we had there though. It was just pull of people, but it wasn’t a problem, the music was great, we had 2 and a half beers each (two being free) and we both had an Irish car bomb for we were both feeling pretty good.
I was getting a bit trashed and confessed some things to someone, but thankfully it didn’t turn out too badly. Plus we also met another person, so that was cool. After taking our mug shots, it being around 2am now, we headed out and went back to Sound Check since Blair told us to come back and just chill for a little bit. After a bit of begging to Billy, he finally went over there and well, we hung out. We went upstairs, shared a couple of 40s, had some jack, and overall it was a pretty relaxing time. Seeing as we had a half an hour drive back and it was getting near 2:30am, we soon left, but of course not before getting some more hugs from Blair.
Getting home, Billy went and passed the fuck out on the futon, and I stayed up and packed everything I didn’t need in the morning. I decided to go to bed around 4am as I had to be up at 8am. I say the night was pretty successful.
