I have realized that I have all the right friends in all the wrong places. And by wrong places, I mean that all of the friends that need to live around me do not. They are spread out across the country….and most recently we even had one move to a different hemisphere. I read all of your weekend reviews and think, man what a fun weekend! Why cant I live near so-an-so?! Sometimes it is hard to be….meep….30…..
Most of my friends are either married and have kids and no longer want to (or have time to) go out and do fun things on the weekends. And by fun things, I am not even talking about getting crazy, I am just saying lets go grab a beer or two and some dinner and call it a night at 10:00 pm. Or they are single and a little younger and I am just not cool enough to hang with.
I mean why is it so damn hard to find a good couple or even just a few people for us to just hang out with on the occasional weekend? I have lots of great ideas of fun things to do. A brewery hop around town, check out a fun hip restaurant, host a little get together at our house…maybe have a craft brew tasting party with some appetizers or a football party.
Not many people want to come visit Birmingham. Trying to get any of my friends who live in Atlanta (just two hours away) to come for a weekend is laughable to them. This isn’t a third world country over here, people! While it might not be a travel destination, there are some fun things to do around here! There are breweries, great restaurants and fun areas of town to hit up. We can certainly provide a night of entertainment. Plus we have a guest bedroom that would provide a comfortable and free place to stay as well. So who wants to come visit the Ham?!
