Presque Isle park

If you want to swim down south, skip Holiday Valley and go straight to Erie. I've never seen such clear water in the lake before. We tried to go to Holiday Valley first but it wasn't great, so we drove another hour and half to Presque Isle in Erie

The water was freezing but I dove in anyway. I couldn't stay very long though.

image
Sunning ourselves like Basra

image
Eventually the sun went away and it was too cold to swim again.
image
So we explored the isle a little more. Here was the Venice of Erie, scrody water included. All the little shacks had boats to go out to them.

Goz Gozah

After the gorge, (e:yesthatcasey) and (e:paul) went on a bromantic date to Oshun. After they got back, Paul passed out and Casey went home.

(e:Terry) and I went to Dana's Goz Gozah dance party at Milkie's. I thought it was going to be lame because of the location and music last time but it ended up being really good.

When we got there, an girl dressed like America went showed off her flag covered nips.

The music was electronic/jungle-y for most of the time. (e:steve) joined us and we all danced our little tails off.

Fall hike at the gorge

(e:yesthatcasey) joined us for a hike in the falls. I know it still might be warm for a while but with leaves changing, it felt like the beginning of fall.

We say these jet skiers on the rapids. I couldn't believe they just flew over them like the jetboat but they did.

Almost made to the to the ol' Devil's Hole, but it stank a little too much that day.

Emily's new apartment

Friday night after the Theater drama, (e:Paul) and I headed over to Emily's new apartment. It's a super swank attic place near Elmwood.

Candles keep it classy

image
Her Jade plants are pretty sweet too.

image
Carrie and Catherine were there too. We found out Paul's Gear knows what vajazzling is.

Two bottles of wine in, Paul and I went off to Marcella's.

image
Mike's former arch-enemy was performing. Maybe it was the lack of Gloria, but I wasn't really feeling it.

After Marcella's, we marched on to Cathode. We made a couple new friends, and invited a bunch of people to the Halloween party.

Slow ride

Take it easy. (e:Paul) and I rode to walk my dog, and then out to Williamsvile to get his MRI CD. He likes to go slow, I like to beat the traffic. We didn't average 20mph, lol.

Despite the fact we drove out in rush hour on Main Street in Williamsville, riding back on Kensington was way more stressful. The drivers coming in were way crazier, and honked and swerved a lot. We also made it through the nussbaumer designed clusterfuck at Kensington and Werhle. Good thing the road is wide enough for us to not get crushed. I hate cars.

Jarred tomatoes

We got an amazing half bushel of tomatoes from the Clinton Bailey Farmers market. (e:terry) canned them and also made a delicious marinara sauce with them. With the linguini we had string beans, cheesy garlic bread, and salad.

So domestic.

image

image
The peels come off the tomatoes easily by boiling them quickly and placing them in ice water
image
Terry then jarred them
image

image
and put them in boiling water for 12 minutes. 14 jars of tomatoes!

Sweetness 7

I had only been to Sweetness 7 for the Park in at Parkside event, but we biked over for brunch on Sunday with (e:heidi) and (e:dianne).

The crepes were amazing. They had fresh lemon curd on them which was perfectly sweet. The breakfast sandwiches were great on the everything bagel too. The food took a while to come out because they forgot to put our order in - but we got a free cinnamon roll to make up for it. Awesome.

Ride to the outer harbor

Saturday I made (e:paul) and (e:terry) go on a bike ride. It was a perfect day for it. The only bad part was somehow I got a blister on my eye (bug maybe?).

30 for 30 and curtain up

Friday we headed down to Brian's 30 for 30 event for Squeaky Wheel. He video dj'ed for 30 hours, a world record (hopefully) in honor of Squeaky Wheel's 30th anniversary. (e:terry) volunteered - (e:paul) and I had to be there also from 12-4am.

image

image
Stinky the wino came too

Outside Curtain up was happening. I always thought it was an old people thing your parents did, but it actually seemed like an awesome street party. They had kettle corn, performers, a weird puppet show - I haven't seen that many people on Main Street since before the square moved.
image

image
The squeaky wheel event was at Cowork Buffalo on Main. They had these cute little bead buffaloes everywhere.
image
Terry and I went back for the end the next night. Brian made it without sleep. The videos he were playing got kind of creepy at the end (people on fire, screaming, mental patients etc).

Buffalo sunsets

Sunsets in the fall are absolutely crazy. I wish my camera could do them justice.
