Long Island Adventure April 27-30 2017

[April 27-30 2017, Long Island, NY, US]

The weekend was great, but it was airplane delays coming and going…

Where to begin…

So I was going to JFK. So were my instant at-the-airport buddies below. They were going to San Juan to beach away the weekend. The flight was supposed to leave at 5:05. Didn’t happen. (JFK sucks, more than 50% of the planes going in from DCA are severely delayed or cancelled outright.) They had to get rerouted through Dallas and lost (at least) a day. Me, I had to go to JFK so I hung around. Got in at 3:00am at the hotel. It was not cool. Oh well – that was Thursday.

Met up with Mike and Melissa on Friday and went to two Long Island distilleries:

Then we went to the Montauk Point Lighthouse on Saturday all the way at the tail end of Long Island just before the gig:

And, the reason for the visit was a CD release party for the Walk-A-Bout band, at which Mike was playing bass guitar for – at the famous Stephen Talkhouse. Here are the pictures in order (click on pic or the link below the pic):

Portland Maine 31-Mar to 01-Apr 2017 Brewery Tours

[Mar 31 through April 02 2017, Portland, Maine, US]

So, it’s a weekend up in Portland – no, not Oregon; Portland, Maine. I went to a bunch of breweries. On Friday, March 31, 2017, I visited Allagash Brewery and Foundation Brewery. Allagash Brewery allagash.com tour and of course sampled their current beers on tap. Interestingly, you can go to Allagash once a day and get their beer free. No refills, just once, but once per day everyday! Amazing. Then, Foundation Brewery foundationbrew.com was next. It was just across the street, so I just walked over. Had a flight at the Foundation brewery. No tour, just beer 🙂

Saturday was Main Brew Bus Tour time: themainebrewbus.com – but it snowed… I called the Maine Brew Bus tors and asked them if the tour was still on. They said yes. So cool! Took Lyft downtown and waited for the others. Other than the guide and the bus driver, I was the only guy on the bus 🙂 It was a bachelorette party. Cool beans, so we all hopped on the bus and went to three Breweries.

Here are the pictures in order. Friday – Allagash, then Foundation, Saturday – Maine Brew Bus:

Dirigo dirigobrewingcompany.com – cool brewery, right next to a river. Amazing place. Great beer of course. Banded Horn bandedhorn.com– no tour, just hung around and sample their beer. Barreled Souls barreledsouls.com– small batch brewery. Cool and amazing.

GenCon 2016 Film Fest – All Your Base: Last OF Last

[04-07 Aug-2016, Indianapolis, IN, US]

GenCon 2016, and not for gaming but to attend the “GenCon 2016 Film Festival”. Why? Because my short animated film was an “Official Selection” of course! And, the plane I flew was on it’s maiden voyage (CRJ-900) and the pilot annouced it, so it was cool. It had the “new aiplane” smell! Here are the pics:

So what was the film that became an “Official Selection”? Can’t show you the film yet, but here are the previews for “All Your Base: Last Of Last” animated scifi comedy, starring: Claudia Christian (Commander Ivanova in Babylon 5), Colin Baker (Doctor Who #6 in Doctor Who), Cliff Simon (Ba’al in Stargate SG1, Terry Molly (Davros of the Daleks in Doctor Who) and Lizzie Roper (BBC Radio Doctor Who series):

Seattle Adventure with Charissa and Kevin 28-APR to 01 MAY 2016

[28-APR to 01 MAY 2016, Seattle, WA]

Another trek with my friends. This time around, Charissa and Kevin. To Seattle. (Charissa works for Starbucks so it was massively cool for her.) I’ve been to Seattle before but haven’t done a lot of the stuff we did this time, so that was new for me too, including: The Science Fiction Museum (EMP Museum) -which was showing the traveling Hello Kitty Museum, going up the Space Needle, riding the monorail, doing the Seattle Underground Tour and finding another absinthe bar – The Polar Bar at the The Arctic Club Hotel 🙂
