First, my friend, Molly, organized a happy hour at Vertigo, which was a great way to kick off the weekend. It was nice to grab a drink with the girls. Luke showed up later with his friend, Kyle, and we hung around for a little before heading over to Madison Square Garden for the Knicks game. Luke and Kyle's former co-worker picked us up at Vertigo and drove us over to MSG...in his Bentley. 2 door. It was awe.some.
The game was fun, and we had sweet seats - face value, $250 a pop. Luke got them for free at work, so the only thing we had to pay for was the $10 beers.
After that we ventured to New Jersey for the opening of the new W Hotel in Hoboken. I had to pee like a race horse on the way over, so I couldn't enjoy the ride as much as I would have liked. But from what I saw of Hoboken, it looked awesome!
After a couple drinks, Luke and I made our way back into the city. The NJ cabbie totally ripped us off, but we figured that would happen. We met up with my friend Kim, whose friend, Anne, was in from out of town for her birthday. I had been told for a while that I looked like Anne, and I've never really been told that I remind a friend of someone else, so I was excited to meet her! And of course we had a fabulous night!
Needless to say, I was exhausted yesterday, but it was all worth it. And I can't wait for this weekend at home in Wisconsin - I'm hoping for some nice spring weather!
