July 06, 2012: Woot! It's Friday and I'm starting a 2 week vacation! Hehehe, let the R&R begin!
July 08, 2012: Today Eric, our buddy Nick and I took a day trip down to Provicentown, MA for the day to visit friends and experience a taste of Bear Week! Last year we went there for a week, but this year, we decided to just go down for a day or two due to Eric's work/school schedule and also because it's just "a lot' for an entire week :) We left around 7:30 and got there by 10:30 AM. Was a nice easy drive. We met up with our friends Chip, Chuck and Steve and it was a fun day from there!
July 12, 2012: Today, I turned 42!!
July 15, 2012: Today was a great day! Eric and I took off late in the morning and headed down to Hull, MA. We had tickets to see DJ Steve Aoki at the Ocean Club at Marina Bay in Quincy, MA and I figured we might as well stay in the local area instead of driving home late at night. We checked in at the Nantasket Beach Resort, which is right across the street from Nantasket Beach. After parking the car and going up to the room (which was really nice) to change, we headed off to the beach. It was a lovely day and we spent about an hour walking the beach, looking for sea glass and people watching. Eventually, we braved the cool waters and went for a swim (and the water was pretty nice!). After that, we hung out for a bit before walking back to the hotel, where Eric proceeded to take a nice long bath in the jacuzzi bathtub. We hung out for a bit and then grabbed a bite to eat at the local restaurant before heading out for the show.
It was our first time going to the Ocean Club at Marina Bay and the venue was sweet! I felt like we were in Miami rather than Quincy, MA :) The crowd was 21+ and most of the people there were between 21-25 and were into the club scene. Drinks were expensive (as expected) but I only had one. The opening DJ's were both really good and at 11 when Steve Aoki stepped up to play, the crowd was ready to go!
We punched out a little bit before the show ended and headed back to hotel (after a quick stop at Wendy's for a late night snack!). The next morning, we slept in late and then checked out around 11. We drop up to Quincy where we picked up our friend Jason Marchant, who was visiting a friend there after a week in Provincetown. Jason just got back from 3 months over in the UK and is getting ready to move from CA to NY, so for the next couple of weeks, he's going to be hanging out with us :)
