I can't wait for spring!

Great weekend--Friday was dinner at Damien's bar then went up to the Nokia to see Keller Williams. A blast as always--Butthole Surfers' Pepper, Moondance, Shakedown Street, Burning Down the House and some other fun covers.

Saturday morning we woke up early and walked from my apartment to Tom's Diner--traversing Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Gowanus Heights (yeah, I didn't make that up), South Slope, Park Slope and finally Prospect Heights. Had an EPIC meal at Tom's and then went to Josh Baron's new apartment, which is a great spot in PHeights.

We followed that up with a great afternoon in Prospect Park--chilling at the new Audubon Center on the lake, hiking up the hill to the waterfall and strolling through the Great Lawn. Did some shopping at the Atlantic Terminal and went home to rest up before the night.

Met Jack and Ellie for a very yummy dinner at Lamb and Jaffy in Greenpoint and then saw the Dub Nomads, featuring Dave Smith on trombone. They were pretty damn awesome and I will definitely see them next time they're playing.

Music Notes:
The new Wilco album is good. Download a copy of it and enjoy. Very heavy on the Nels influence but there are some gems in there.

Travel Notes:
LANGERADO!!!!!!!! Be there or be super lame. 'Nuff said.

Gowanus Heights is actually Greenwood/Sunset Park area. The views are great from Gowanus Heights.

This was the original Gowanus neighborhood. They even had the Ladies of the Gowanus who ran fundrasers and community garden events.

What we refer to now as Gowanus was called the swamp (guite a different place from the Heights)!

Was doing a search on blogs discussing Langerado and came upon your site. Stop by and say hello, we'll be there in our second year:
