My Sap is Rising

So Spring is here, and I've been seeing a great guy the past few weeks. I randomly met him at the Caribou Coffee on 14th & Rhode Island Ave. His names Stephen, ( NO, hold the "Adam & Steve" jokes )he's 27, and he's very handsome.
We've been going out and having fun with eachother for sometime now, but I didn't want to spill the beans on my blog until it amounted to anything. I'm still not sure if he's going to know about this blog or not, given what happened with the last guy that unfortunately joined Adam's Hall of Dictator Ex-es.

Stephen is intelligent, nice, and has classy, intelligent friends who can exist outside of the trashy bars. I have a feeling we're going to continue having fun.
Well, it's been a fun yet busy week in the wake of a certain environmental holiday. My life is oh so much easier now (with a few exceptions). And there's something about Spring that really does, er, make one's sap rise. I don't know what it is.

New York, Redux

What happens when you have a vegan granola hippy, a Ukrainian girl, and a fabulous gay man on a trip to another city together?

Well, for a business trip next week I will be in New York City again, for three days. I'll have plenty of "me time" hopefully to do what I want - I plan on ditching the co-workers early. I will be staying in a fab hotel in Midtown near 5th Ave.

And this time I won't have the boring baggage I had with me the last time.

My Liver Hurts

Here's the re-cap, you knew you were waiting for it:
The Mother Land...
So Friday evening after work I went with a co-worker and some friends to Russia House, north of Dupont Circle. The food is unique (I mean, when was the last time you went out for Russian?) the drinks were great, and the ambiance was very... Moscow mafia. I do reccomend it for the experience, even if it is a bit over-pricey.

Birthday Drinking Rehearsal
Saturday I went out with a friend who offered to take me anywhere I wanted to go, in exchange for missing my birthday next week. Now you know those are the "famous last words." So we went for dinner at Banana Cafe in Capitol Hill. Afterwards I went for more drinks at Halo though he wasn't too crazy about the whole non-smoking thing. Speaking of which, this smoking ban...don't get me started. So he dragged me into the Funeral Parlour because he could smoke there. Of course I was surrounded by people I didn't want to see (ex. Mussolini, not at an AA meeting) so I didn't even finish my first drink before we went over to Cobalt. I have mixed feelings about the place, but that was a good night. I ran into a peaceful ex, Sergei, (note his lack of a dictator's name) and we had a great time.

Easy Like Sunday Morning
So after getting home late, I woke up surprisingly well, and after coffee, I spent the afternoon checking out the National Museum of the American Indian. While some of the exhibits seemed a bit off, overall the architecture of the building is very interesting. It's worth a visit just to say you went. Margo, Fred, & myself returned to Singapore Bistro (formerly Cafe Asia) for dinner. A new favorite place to add to my list.

Don't Dance with Daddies
So when I got home from dinner, Fernando texted me to go get drinks, so we went to Halo. By the way, new favorite drink, the pineapple mojito (it just keeps getting better every visit!). We realized it was the final night of Lizard Lounge, closing due in part to the stupid smoking ban. Lizard Lounge, held at 1223 Conn. Ave NW, was a gay Sunday night dance party that had lasted 7 years. It will be missed!
So I learned some final lessons that night from the Lizard... don't dance with daddies unless you're prepared to go home with them. It's a long story, but thanks Fernando for abandoning me to them, I'll remember that. =)
Monday morning hurt.
But at least my laptop has been repaired and I had a lunch date with that guy in building...

Forget about Jesus...

Here it is again, my birthday!

Unfortunately, April 16th is Easter Sunday this year (go figure some religious figure would dare to upstage ME and MY DAY!!)

So, Saturday, April 15th will be the day of actual festivities.
While much of the planning has yet to be done, I will be having dinner at Lauriol Plaza ( 1835 18th St NW, Wash. DC) at time TBA. What follows afterwards is anyone's guess. I'm sure it will involve alcohol, dancing, and debauchery.

Spring Chicken!

The warm(er) weather is finally here! My recap of the week: Wednesday I went with Fernando and some friends of his to Meskerem in Adams Morgan. I'm normally not totally big on Ethiopian cusine, but this place is awesome! Everybody liked everything! And I love how Ethiopian food is so communal and shared. Afterwards I went out for drinks. I like random Wednesdays.
HALO - Thursday, I met Margo, Fred, and Fernando for drinks at Halo (1435 P St. NW). I know I keep doing plugs for Halo, but I can't express how happy I am to have a classier bar East of Dupont Circle. If you haven't gone here, do so. It's smoke-free, amazing drinks. So anyway, everytime I go I keep discovering new and inovative drinks you can't find at other places. Among my new favorites: the mango-tini, Hypnotiq Breeze, raspberry mojitos, the "angel fruit" martini.
Anyway after drinks we had dinner at Dakota Cowgirl, which I like better than it's previous incarnation, Hamburger Mary's.
Friday I had a date with this really wonderful guy. He, having run a company that restores historic houses, has a fascinating knowledge of architecture, on top of being an all-round sweet and intelligent guy. We had dinner and drinks at Rosemary's Thyme...
The next morning after a wonderful night we had breakfast at Cosi before going our separate ways... I had a date with Tai-Shan the panda.

Damn him for being so cute! Margo, Fred, and myself were able to catch him outside at play with his mother. I love the zoo, and being so close to it. Went shopping afterwards at Pentagon Row, got some cute new sandals, had lunch at Thaiphoon.
Sunday I sunned in the Circle, and went on a goose-chase of tattoo parlours, as Fernando was looking to get his nips re-pierced. Renting a Mini Cooper from Zipcar, we went to a party in Takoma Park, saw a friend of his who's a great singer perform

Can someone tell me, though, what's up with all the lesbians living in Takoma Park?
