Right now I’m in Portland, ME. It is secretly a very awesome city. It’s walkable, and there are lots of great restaurants, and it’s on the water. What’s not to love? Last night I was in a pinch for dinner, and I had some mediocre pizza, which I guess I didn’t love. But it had buffalo chicken on top of, which I would probably eat off of a hat or an unfinished basement floor. Plus, they had Dr. Pepper at this pizzeria, which was a major soft-drink victory!
On to the club (Maine Comedy Connection, http://www.mainecomedy.com). It’s right in the old port, which is in the cozy touristy part of town, which is perfect because I am a cozy tourist. The room was about 2/3 full, and the show went great! It’s my first weekend working up here, and I hope they have me back soon! One more show tonight, and then I’m back to Boston tomorrow.
My girlfriend (whose name I will not use because I’m not sure whether she reads this blog) came up with me, and we’re staying at a B and B (bed and breakfast, I think). Both the B and the B were king-sized, which I’m not used to (and which were awesome). Then Sarah (whose relationship to me I will not list because I’m not sure whether she reads this blog) left for a long run, because she is training for a half marathon. I told her that I was going to do sit-ups while she was out, but so far, I don’t think I’ve sat up even once.
The rest of the weekend will be full of seafood, comedy, tourism, and potentially outlet shopping. I feel like my dad. But that’s mostly because I look like my dad.
Will update tomorrow, but with pictures!
