It was our first block party on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. It was a smaller crowd but an active one.

My 10,000 day and Roommate Bucket List weekend


In June, I crossed the 10,000th day of my life. In August, after two years of living together, my good friend Patrick, who also crossed a similar mark, was moving out of my home.

To celebrate, he and I had a weekend of celebration.

On Friday night, we had a trashy liquor party, where we had more than 20 people over to drink the leftover booze we’ve had in our home for years.

On Saturday, after brunch, chess in the park, basketball, pizza and the Phillies at the Piazza, a mini bar crawl, ending with city-wide specials at the Handle Bar and gambling at Sugarhouse Casino, all while wearing suits of course.

Then, on Sunday, we played paintball.
