Quite a full weekend. Friday night Spacebee’s parents dropped by on their way into town and we watched the first half of the Brewers/Cubs game. We headed out to try and meet our nieghbors at The Brink but couldn’t find them, and headed back to the Depot just as the heavens opened up.
Saturday was a full day: farmer’s market in the morning, then we had breakfast at Marigold with Spacebee’s mom and grandmom for mom’s day. Quick nap, then we hopped in the car to drive to Milwaukee to have dinner with my family for mom’s day as well. We shot back to my brother’s house to watch the end of the Brewers/Cubs game two.
Sunday morning, we figured that since we had to drive back through Milwaukee to Madison anyways we might as well see if we could wrangle some tickets to the game. A Long Wong’s Wagon ride and two Standing Room-only tickets later we were watching Rickie Weeks sky a homer to left-field from the right-field foul pole. It was nice to have standing room tickets as we just ambled around the stadium the entire game and saw lots of cool stuff. Bad thing: the built a canopy over the FSN desk in right-field so you can’t hang over the fence and jaw at Craig and Davey anymore. Good thing: the new store is ok, but the renovated store in left field is pretty cool.
I bought a pink bat. See?
We also stopped off at Eastgate Cinema on our way back into Madison to see Star Trek. I’ll bottom-line it for you: great movie. I’m no die-hard Trek fan but I watched it when I was younger and was uncertain how they would shoehorn the new dudes, villains, etc. into the existing framework. They did a great job, and with the exception of the groan-inducing (to me, but drew cheers from others in the theater) shouting of catchphrases by the characters I had a great time. Go see it, it’s good.
