This past weekend was one of the few that I actually had something to do planned for each day. Friday night I went to the Brea Improv to see Bob Saget. You might remember him as Danny Tanner on the show Full House (before the Olsen Twins got all druggie looking) or maybe as the host of America's Funniest Home Videos. If you see him live, don't expect anything G rated to come out of his mouth. I've seen him live once before and I think his randomly dirty humor is funny to me because of his past tame roles. I was sitting right up front next to the stage, which was a little too close I think, but still fun. He picked on some audience members, talked about Kimmie Gibler and other Full House peeps, and sang dirty/funny songs for us. My favorite being "Danny Tanner Was Not Gay" sung to the music of the Backstreet Boys song "I Want it That Way."
Saturday morning I woke up early and went to Pechanga Casino (on an Indian Reservation in Temecula, CA) to play poker with Jeff. We both played in the morning tournament, but didn't make the money. Afterwards we played some limit cash games and I ended up winning $88. Not bad for the low limits we play. After that we headed home to rest up for dinner at Benihanas. We had a group of friends together to celebrate Alan's birthday. After stuffing my face on steak, shrimp, vegies, steamed rice, a sake bomb, and some ice cream, we headed home to play a little beer pong. Always a lot of fun with this group and it provided one of the funniest quotes ever from the quietest guy in the group. One of those you had to be there moments. We were all cracking up. Good times.
Sunday morning and afternoon I didn't do much. I was still recouperating from the previous night. I spent most of the day on the couch watching some NCAA basketball and High Stakes Poker reruns. That night I headed out to the House of Blues in Anaheim to see Less Than Jake. Jeff and I made a stop in the bar before heading in to see the show and had a couple beers. The show was a lot of fun. I discovered a new band that I'm going to have to check out called The Expendables. They put on a really good show just before Less Than Jake took the stage. LTJ played for about an hour. They played a few old classics like "9th and Pine" and "Happyman" as well as plenty of new stuff (which I didn't know). I'll have to buy a new cd from them too. Getting home at midnight made Monday morning tough. But luckily I survived.
I've got my eyes set on another concert in the near future now, but I'll need to find someone to go with me. OK Go is playing the HOB on April 10th. I might just have to go alone. I'll keep ya posted.
