It was 75° today! In March! The hottest day of the year so far was a perfect justification for a business lunch. I ended up checking out the new Gamlin Whiskey House in the Central West End. It was a great day to sit out in the sun and enjoy a BLT.
But I was in the neighborhood for more than just the lovely weather. Namely, I wanted to introduce my buddies Alex and Jeff to Tyler Harris. That’s Tyler Harris of iamtylerharris.com my longtime friend and an early pic for MVP of 2015. Tyler Harris is about as entertaining as one man can be, which I saw this weekend firsthand at The Cocktail Party. Tyler and his crew threw another epic Cocktail Party on Saturday nite, a suit and tie affair that’s equal parts swanky & goofy. Pictures will probably surface at some point in the near future. I only managed to take one photo, of the fully stocked bar cabinet.
Of course I went for the Wild Turkey. But I digress; back to lunch.
Tyler has a new design company, With These Glasses, that is looking to grow. I figured I should introduce him to some of my contacts, as Tyler is a hell of an artist in my opinion. So much of an artist that I notice at lunch that he’s wearing this button.
Tyler Harris is the undisputed button-maker champ. Terribly clever little art measuring 1½”. This particular button is a modified rhyme from a recent Run The Jewels track, which just so happens to be my favorite song at the moment.
I recognized the lyrics right away and mentioned my love for “Oh My Darling(Don’t Cry)”. I then remarked that Tyler should make a button with the funniest rhyme from the song, which happens to follow the line on his button.
I fuck and rap
I tote the strap
I smoke the kush
I beat the puss
I read the books
Did the math
Don’t need a preacher preachin’ on my behalf
I recited the lyrics quickly, which caused Alex and Jeff laugh. As I’m spitting my white boy rap, Tyler casually reaches into his pocket and pulls out this
Daaaaaaaamn dude, Tyler’s button game is strong! Oh My!
My niece and nephew are getting bigger and cuter by the day! My sister recently took the kiddos in for their 7 month old photos to the preferred portrait studio of my family, JC Penny! The results were adorable. Here’s Harlan smiling up a storm.
What a handsome dude! He’s got his daddy’s eyes and the same little piggy nose that my sister did at that age. And check out this little Princess.
Cece has the opposite features of Harlan, with her father’s nose and my sister’s droopy eyes. Man do I love these little stinkers! And despite the taunting of my sister’s looks, I think she did a hell of a job with these two.
But there’s more! It’s a #2ForTuesday double twins post!
That’s a short little video I took while visiting my niece and nephew on Sunday. As you can see in the video, I am quite taken with this charming little pair. I got to take turns giving them bottles and holding them for a couple of blissful hours. Being an uncle is the best!
