Birthday's, Zoo's and Other Odds and Ends

In the last few weeks I've helped celebrate two birthday, gone to the zoo, had the day to myself and randomly went to a Linkin Park, 30 Second to Mars and AFI show.

It's been quite the whirlwind but it has felt good to be out and spending time with people I previously hadn't spent much time with.

Anthony or as most friends call him, Jav turned 26 the other weekend and there was a small house party in celebration. I might of partied a little too hard but we all had a great time

I caught the sun setting on the drive to Jersey

The Birthday Boy!!

The next morning Me, Nick, Chelsea and the very tired and cranky hungover Birthday boy went to the zoo together.  I unfortunately was very sick earlier in the day and caught up with them for the last hour at the zoo.  It was kind of a bummer because in the 4 years I've been living in Philadelphia I had never been to the zoo.  Here are a few pictures from the few things that I got to see

The resemblance is seriously uncanny. Anthony has the posture and Nick nailed the face.

I want to be this guy.  He looks so peaceful

After the zoo we went to one of the best Philly Cheese steak places in the city; And no, it was not Pat's or Geno's!

This place is up in East Falls close to where my current apartment is called Dalessandro's

Since I'm not a cheese steak fan I had a wimpy salad and watched the other three eat massive steaks.  We first went to the wrong restaurant and were driving up and down north west Philly for a bit but it was worth it in the end! (For them at least ;) )

Last Friday I was supposed to get my tattoo finished up but decided last minute to reschedule and took the afternoon for myself.  I hadn't walked around center city in a long time so it was nice to do what I wanted on my time.
I stopped by the fountain first and took some time to write some poetry

For lunch I went to Village Whiskey and ordered myself a nice pint and a burger (shocking I know!)

After lunch I walked over to Rittenhouse to catch some rays

I unfortunately had sat on gum when I was at the park but there are worse things that could happen.
After being around the city for a few hours and went home expecting to have a rather quiet evening.  But that changed quite quickly!  One of Anthony's friends invited me last second to go to the concert and I decided to go.

I won't dare share the embarrassing photos from the concert last weekend but it was nice for all of us to meet up and scream our lungs out to Linkin Park.  I was devastated that I missed AFI's set but maybe one day I will have the opportunity to see them again!

We laughed, we screamed, we sang and had a great time.

I didn't enjoy the traffic I endured going to and from Philly but everything else was pretty Ace.

There are a few more things I'll be sharing on the next few days, can't spoil it all in one post!  Hope everyone is enjoy their weekend
