Nationals vs. Marlins… #PlayinHookey (Taken with instagram)
Long awaited and much needed QT with the familia starting now… No raging: just parentals, siblings, and kids. 104 degrees in Washington right now, but no biggie!
More greatness once again… This night has been sold out for weeks… Everyone didn’t get in at first, but it all worked out as it always does. Definitely up there in terms of fave times this summer!

After a night of drinking, an entire day of mountain biking, how does one recharge? More drinking, while standing in the hot sun?! Francis’ Annual Summer Bonfire was going on, why rest? Was definitely on a no sleep til brooklyn tip — Another epic night… documented by the homies at Social.
Dockweiler Beach (Playa del Rey, CA): Franchise’s 6th Annual Summer Sizzle #AstroPatSendOff
Note to self: Do not go out drinking all night in DTLA, if you have to be in Orange County by 6:30am. This was my first time going on a morning mountain biking adventure… I’ve been up early as all hell the next day after major ragers to play some golf, but this was not even close to being the same — a very painful start to your Saturday, with 10 miles of trails (in hot as fucc conditions) still to come.
Whiting Ranch (Irvine, CA): Mountain Biking #WellWorthWakingUpFor
July 4th Weekend had it’s share of drinking, partying, and chillin… but it also was the weekend I went all in on my latest hobby, Mountain Biking — buying my first real (or maybe just real expensive) bike. Hopefully, I stick w/ it, b/c this schit is definitely not a cheap hobby, but looking for good times that don’t always involve booze…
Giant Anthem X 29er | Full Suspension #AlcoholFreeFun
Hanging at the beach, pool, bar, resort, etc all day with my brothers, sister, nephew, and niece are some of the greatest times of my life. This easily goes down as the most relaxing/stress-free vacation. Maui is the meaning of vacation (i.e., guilt-free laziness!).
Black Rock (Kaanapali, HI): Cliff Diving #Yeah3x
I soon found out that Maui wasn’t exactly Waikiki… that island is more about the daytime events/activities, like hiking. Definitely a first, but not a last. Over 10K in elevation, hiked down over 2K, hiked back up same path (not recommended), over 7 miles total… I’m hurt just thinking about it.
Haleakala National Park (Makawao, HI): Sliding Sands Trail #Amazing(Kanye’sMusicVideo)
Over a week in paradise… Much needed at the half way point of 2011, work was fuccin bananas (more like ape schit crazy) this year. Trip to my home away from my home that’s away from home…
"We doin’ it big
Look at what I done
Look at where I is
It’s only just begun
'Cause I was staying home [i.e., the office!]
When they was having fun
So please don’t be surprised when they announce that I won
And this is how my speech goes
I deserve this shit, I deserve this shit, I deserve this shit”
Westin Maui Resort and Spa (Kaanapali, HI): Day 1 / Minute 1 at Hotel #CHEEEEE
Barbeque + Familia + Friends = Good Times
Ryan & Barb’s Crib (Signal Hill, CA): Memorial Day Party #SundayFunday
From DC, Landed in LA @ 11:30PM, Home @ Midnight, Hollywood @1:00AM… Out Friday Early Morning = Awesomeness, but Work Friday Mid Morning = Exhaustion!
"I can love again tonight
We’re down to this track
And I don’t care what anybody thinks about that
Hands to the sky, and throw your head back
Bounce, Bounce, Bounce…”
Music Box (Hollywood, CA): Calvin Harris #Awooga!
Attempted to fucc w/ Rusko show, but sold out… So hmmm, hit a club up.
The Belasco (Los Angeles, CA): Saturday Sneak Preview #HolySchasian
In the past 5 years, I’ve noticed that Tuesday nights are the schit — 2nd best to Saturday, I think?!
