Firstly, I highly recommend the champagne Sunday brunch at Foxwoods Casino. We took the 1.5hour drive down there this morning purely for the brunch. Obviously, as you can probably tell from the name, champagne is included. Also present are the usual brunch fares (toast, waffles, omelet station, carved turkey, sausage, bacon, hash browns, etc.). But, from there the buffet traverses the boundary into the sublime. I enjoyed several slices of roast beef tenderloin, rack of lamb, fresh made sushi, lobster tails, and other yummy delights. At $55/person it aint cheap, but I definitely think it’s worth it.
Also, since the Sox game today was rain-delayed, it still hadn’t started by the time we arrived back in Boston. This meant we were able to wait for the first pitch and head down to get some leftover $5 tickets (somewhat long story, but it’s a special deal that Kristy gets from her employer). We settled for what the ticket-window dude called “wheelchair space on the roof.” It turns out that we ended up in two folding chairs up in the State Street Pavilion. Sweetness. And a pretty good game to boot.
Now for some more randomness, here are some songs/albums that have made their way up to the top of my iPod playlist lately:
- 25 or 6 to 4 – Chicago
- Some Loud Thunder/Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (albums) – Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
- Mr. Blue Sky – ELO
- Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is? – Chicago
- Walking On the World (album) – Jake Armerding
