The breakdancing thing last night at Laowo Bar was pretty cool. Some of those kids have serious skills and inhuman strength/weight ratios.

Thanks to all those that came to the great party last Saturday night at Lazy Bones. Elliott really knows how to throw an affair! The drinks and food were great, we had a good time playing music and Rob killed it on guitar! I can't wait for the next one!
