Social weekend ahead

Friday, August 16, 2019

Gave a ride home to a pickleball pal after playing this morning. He mentioned the 2 slices of pizza and a pint of beer offer always available at Lucky's Market, a store between where we were and where we were going, and offered to buy, but I declined, mostly because I've got a social weekend with plenty of eating out already on the menu.

Going to watch soccer with fellow fans of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, either in Ann Arbor, or over in Detroit tomorrow afternoon. It'll be in Detroit, if I make it to a pickleball event in downtown Detroit where they'll set up temporary courts in Cadillac Square, and that group of fans meets at the Mercury Burger Bar, which is a place I've been meaning to revisit with or without the excuse of watching a game there, so this is a good excuse. Later on in the day, a friend is having a birthday gathering at her house, and I've said I would attend. Haven't quite figured out what I'm doing in the in-between time, since the game would end at 2:30 and the gathering isn't until 7:30. I'll have to decide whether to run back home, or just figure out a way to kill some time out in Detroit, which frankly isn't too difficult a proposition. Might depend on how sweaty I get playing pickleball, and whether I feel compelled to shower.

(and yes, I know, eww, gross, nasty...but what people don't know won't hurt them, right? And I'm totally planning on taking a change of clothes along, so it's not like I'll be smelling all day! And if I am, I WILL feel compelled to do the extra driving to get home and clean up, so...)

Sunday brings a trip to Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, a place chock full of dummies...and I say that literally, because the wiki description says it has "a huge collection of coin-operated animatronic dummies, mechanical games and other oddities. Exhibits include, for example, the classic gypsy Fortune teller machine that used to grace many a carnival sideshow." And also an electric chair from Sing Sing used in the execution of 30 people.


From there, the group I'm going with is heading over to a nearby deli that has quite an extensive menu, so I'll decide at that point how bad I want to be, foodwise. It'll probably be a function of how hungry I am at that point in time. It usually is.

Should be a fun weekend.
