Been absent the last couple of weeks because we’ve been out and about. Father’s Day was fantastic we ended up going to Eight Bridges Brewery in Livermore, CA. Met up with friends, had our children play “who can smack their head on more things” and enjoyed some good local drafts. This week the wife and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary. It’s flown by and now that we have our beautiful daughter, it’s light speed ahead! So here’s some links for the weekend. Next week expect a review and then pics from LA, more stuff going on, I know, it’s crazy!

I mean what else would we be doing this weekend?! Art & Wine Festival in Walnut Creek, but of course. It’s been unbearably hot these past two weeks and so why not beat it with booze and art. Makes sense in my BoozeDaddy head. We’ll be meeting up with some friends and trying our best to out kid the kids. Then we’ll go home and soothe our sunburns, well the pale people at least, sorry Mrs. BoozeDaddy. What’s on your plate? In your glass? Gin & Tonic kind of weekend? No matter what, enjoy it with the ones you love!

All tuckered out from so much traveling

It’s a three day weekend! Memorial Day plans anyone? We’ll be hanging out with friends and doing a bit of summer cleaning. I just purchased a new gin, so there should be a review up next week with cocktail recipe…if I can make up my mind. It’s gorgeous outside, time to enjoy this weekend ya’ll!

We’re headed back to Long Beach for a short weekend trip. The Mrs. will be attending a Bachelorette Party. So it’s Dad and a buddy watching Baby Les, with the help of my sister…hopefully. On the list of things to do, TRY MORE BOURBON. Hoping to sample some items I have yet to try and then put up some snazzy new reviews. Any recommendations while I’m down there?

Hi, I’m Lesli and I’m going to give my Dad a heart attack. 

Celllooooo!! Here’s some links for your weekend. What’s everyone got planned? We’re hoping to get out the house and maybe hit a vineyard. Why not? We live in NorCal after all and that’s a thing people do. Even with an almost 10 month old who likes to climb everything without consequence! Gravity used to be a friend of mine, now I fear it.

Bloody Mary, Margarita & Mimosa Bar

A couple of weeks ago our family visited Long Beach for our dear friends’ Wedding Shower. My darling wife happens to be the Matron of Honor and I’m tasked with officiating the wedding in July. Needless to say we were a part of the planning process for the Shower. And our most coveted assignment was the BOOZE.

The groom loves a solid Bloody Mary with a kick of spice and the proper garnish while the bride fancies herself a Mimosa. Everyone and I mean everyone in Long Beach loves a good Margarita. So boom, it happened. Below are two pics of the bar.

Here’s the products we used, so when you’re planning an awesome bash you know what you’ll need.

Before all had left the frivolity, we ended going through all of the Mimosas and Margaritas. It twas a success! We can’t wait for the wedding and it’s not too far away…JULY! We’ll be visiting some of our favorite watering holes in LA, so I’ll be sure to post about it once we return. Seven Grand, anyone?

Happy Bar Making!

Our little Les is growing up so fast. Today we had to lower her crib because she’s able to pull herself up, grab things and avoid inevitable sleep. To be honest, it’s one of her cuter pre-night rituals, but it’s rather taxing on us parents. This weekend we’re going to baby proof some more and perhaps start the very upsetting process of baby-gating our place. I hate the idea of putting up blockades. Am I alone in this? Also on the agenda, reorganizing our lives. Perhaps I’ll post about it, if I feel brave enough to show you my mess of a closet. Have a great weekend!

Prince performing at Super Bowl XLI

I can’t count how many times a Prince song has dotted the “i” in my life. Prince seemed out of this world, of a higher consciousness and we’re blessed he shared his unfathomable talent with us. He was an icon, a peculiar personality and from those that knew him a kind soul. 2016 so far has taken some good ones. It’d be nice if it cooled down a bit. RIP.

This weekend we’re headed to Long Beach for a Wedding Shower. I’ll hopefully have some sweet pics of the spread. The Mrs. and I are setting up the brunch bar with a little bit of Bloody Mary, Mimosa and Margarita action. We love visiting Long Beach, the people are great, our friends live in LA and there’s some killer brew pubs downtown. Les loves it because she’s the belle of the ball. Everyone wants to take care of her, make her laugh, hold and carry her. And of course we’re like “have at thee!” The smallest of breaks is the biggest help. What’s everyone up to? How do you like your Bloody Mary?

This made me laugh out loud, the absurdity of it is amazing. Drake is releasing an American whiskey (he’s Canadian) called Virginia Black. No one knows why it’s called Virginia Black either. Don’t worry, once it’s released, I’ll review it and take one for the team.

Enjoy your weekend!

Finally watched ‘Inside Out’, it reminded me of this quote. Pixar never ceases to amaze me. I look forward to sharing it with my daughter when she’s a little bit older. And then again and again and again because that’s how it works, right?

It’s Friday! The weekend is upon us, let us rejoice with brews, libations and wine! We’ve got basic plans this weekend. A little trip to Targé and another little trip to the park. Our little one loves the swings, so if it’s not too busy we’ll get in a good five minutes before we get tired. We’re hardcore like that. What’s the weekend got in store for you?
