Beer Garden

beer gardenI haven’t seen Chris (I call him Mary..inside joke) in the longest time, probably once like 2 and a half years ago, and then like 5 years ago… damn. Time sure does get the best of us. Since he was gonna be in NYC he invited me down to his cousin’s BBQ which was starting at 3pm. (cough cough cough, according to him) So when I saw it hit like 6pm, I felt like a bad friend. See, I was so busy editing (for a shoot you’ll see soon) and time got the best of me. Luckily for me, he wasn’t even there yet.  I made my way towards Queens, which I almost never go to. When I arrived, he told me he just got there… That bastard!

hahaha.. I was feeling less guilty in no time.

His cousin was the birthday boy, and while I was being introduced to new faces, I managed to recognize some old ones. Chris’s sister Vanessa  (who I went to High School with) and Frankie (another cousin who I’ve met like 6 years ago)

Vanessa is such a sweetheart and catching up Frankie was definitely a good surprise.

Everyone was playing beer pong, which I have never played, and failed to mention, because I knew as soon as I said something, the ball would be in my court.. no thank you!

Maybe another time, when I learn all the rules, and can we make it “wine” cup instead!?

The weather was nice, so out to back deck we went. I actually got to meet some pretty cool people and catch up with old friends. So there you go, great  night!beer garden 3beer garden 41cb375036ff5b6d0a8b411e038b0949d
