ali and i went to kanpai last night


five years ago this weekend we went to vegas with some of her friends

we all stayed at the palms place

and then we saw the black keys play.


back then the black keys were cool.

last night was cool because we ended up meeting these very nice women who grew up in the south bay.

they had just worked out at the cross fit downt he street

they made the terrible decision of saying,

“lets just pop into kanpai and have a few slices of king salmon.”

next thing you know theyre eating drinking and telling us their deepest secrets

ali at kanpai

this was all at the new kanpai on sepulveda. ali had never been.

on a friday at 730pm even the new kanpai is packed so we went to this german place next door

for a quickie beer drinking competition.

i let her win.


today the cubs began the year they will win the world series

cubs it’s a magic trick done right in front of everyones faces

it’s a bank robbery where the crooks say, we’re gonna rob the wells fargo on this street on this date at this time

and not only will we take all the money but we’re gonna bake a cake in the employees break room.

here are the gentlemen who will pull the heist of a lifetime
