Magical Weekend

To quote Arrested Development:

So this is the magic trick, huh?
Illusion, Michael. A trick is something a whore does for money...


It's funny, I can't even read that quote to myself without hearing the Final Countdown playing...

On Friday night, Brian and I met up with the Cunninghams for a cheap night out. We had an interesting dinner at a dive in North Aurora thanks to Pat's mom who bought them Groupons to use. The food was OK but the drinks were reminiscent of our college days - cheap and delicious!

After dinner, we went to the bar right by their house and got a pitcher...we were there for a short time when a magician came to our table and gave us an AWESOME show! This guy was quick! He did a handful of amazing card tricks that involved all 4 of us and even had Pat exclaiming out loud with awe! It was awesome...we were all considering how we could hire this guy - the girls thought it would be cool for Book Club while the guys were thinking of paying him to scam their friends out of money in a Poker game!

In other magical news - Brian and I tackled the garage on Saturday...and we are FINALLY seeing some progress!!! I really think I will be parking in there before the first snowfall!
