Where is this spot? I might want to try and join you sometime.
Nope. Still have the cj7. Thinking about selling her as I've gotten offers. Also moving into a condo that I have to live in one year before I can rent it out. Having my guest spot taken up is a bummer. Next step is to purchase a house with a garage. If I had a garage now that's where she's be living .
Maybe sell her to get a boat, motorcycle, fathead wall decor of sappy eating a sandwich...who knows.
Sounds good; let me know?!
edit: Downtown 12th and K street - long walk for me from Federal Triangle. lol but (relatively) close to McPherson Sq metro...
did you guys just say the magic word... buffet? want to plan this out and pick a day in advance?? i'll try to make it as well.
Oh, I know where that spot is. Maybe try to hit it up Thursday?
Ratty Batty! I was thinking about Indian today. This is the one next on K and 11th street, right? Can we do next week?
We went to Teddy's Roti today! Awesome food. Never had Buss Up Shut before. Alittle pricey but good grub!
Zap: since u working in the AM, U free then on Fri PM? I can hit between 9am till 3pm. Let me know.
Actually 9 am its only time I can.but I have class Thursday night til like 11 so I don't think my body s will be up for it =/
Teddy's food is really good - authentic Trinidadian and that hot sauce will kick your butt! Buss Up Shut is the coolest sounding dish - but my Trini friend who introduced me to that place says it's basically a roti chopped up (buss'ed up). The roti is so good and HUGE (that's what she said). I got Downs a roti and he had 3 square meals with it...lol Yeah, his prices have gone up quite a bit in the last couple of years... It wasn't great before, pricewise, but it's not smart now. Maybe it's the rent rates there? Not sure.
Yup that's the one; supposedly very good and good value too.
I didn't go today but Thursday next week may work (for cb and sap too). Tomorrow (Thursday) won't be so good to do a buffet when I gotta play some dubs with Downs and pals at 5pm...haha
yeah...no buffet before hitting...haha
Or...do an early lunch buffet at 11 when they open and the crowd is light. I'd be good by 5pm then! haha
all this food talk. i wanna join. somebody give me times and locations. i am not saying i'm going to mcbail. but i like having the option. but since it's food -- the likelihood is high that i come out to eat.
Sorry tm, if you're south of 200lbs, you're not invited...
Sap, you're invited.
JRs, I think you're invited?
Cb, are you north of the magical 200? If so, please come along.
Downs, you're definitely not invited; of course you're not coming all the way downtown for lunch anyway...
That is all.
okay. twmac invasion at Mayur Kabab next thurs, 10/11 @ 11am.
Not going to ask who is coming as it'll end up with multiple likely McBail's when it is asked. Just show up. The place is small enough there I bet we'll recognize each other even though we haven't met all the TWMac'ers yet. I haven't been there before, heard about it, is it pretty good?
Next spot if going to be either Kabob Palace (awesome Kabobs (that's what she said?)) or Kohinoor Palace (Indian Buffet)
Sap and I were spotted in London at a Mongolian BBQ place:
Paulman: I am definitely in Gold Card Status of the North of 200 club. Trying to get to mid 200's.
haha perfect cb!
so i'm being discriminated against because i'm not big boned? give me a chance man. i eat above my weight.
btw -- i played with my exo3 tour team last night with terrible syn gut. it played terrible but i think it was actually the strings. with a poly or hybrid i thought it might be pretty decent. then i bust out the m-fil 300's that CB strung up. and for the second time in a row they felt magical. so i'm loving these sticks i bought for $10 each. and then for shiz and giggles - sappy let me borrow his aerogel 200 16x19 european specials. took off his super crap wilson overgrips -- the ones that look like they come free with a 4-pack of balls. and without the overgrips -- they weigh 325 grams. right in my wheelhouse. and i loved those too. plus i fixed his buttcaps squeaking (that's what she said). so i love old azz dunlops that cost next to nothing or nothing. i don't know if that means i'm cheap or i'm supposed to play with dunlops.
lol! Too funny tm! OK bro, come & eat til they're bankrupt just like cb&sap did in London...haha
Always wondered how the Euro 4D 200's were since they had the nice 16x19 stringbed.
edit: Also corrected your kind reference above.
Next Thurs sounds do-able. What time?
I should be there. 11am next Thurs.
My youngest turned 5 today! Man, time flies by so fast and he's growing like a weed!
Congrats PaulMan! My oldest turns 5 next week.
Oh OK, very cool; thanks. Likewise for your Bri. For some reason, I thought she was 6 or 7.
^^ that's racist.
CB. i'm actually 130lbs but i talk like a 350lb-er.. as sup put it
lol! JRs, I was gonna ask you to interpret Sap but...
What's for lunch today?
I'll be up there for some leaf peeping in 2 weeks. If my arm is OK, I'm going to try and hook up with Mr. McLovin for a hit.
Caved, dropped the diet shake today.
Craving egg sandwich so I grabbed some bagel thins, eat beaters, and Canadian bacon.
Guess who is USTA Captain of the month?
congrats! mini-paulman...haha, he looks just like you!
not a bad alternative...i've been trying to eat better lately...it's hard now after 30!
soup and salad...hungry
my boy blue!
ive got 4 demos on the way
ig prestige mid
ig prestige mp
ig speed 18x20
BLX Pro Staff Six.One 95
maybe one o these is my holiest of grails
i took my blx pro open out today and at times it hits these monster serves and has tons of spin on groundies but sometimes feels like a club and very sluggish. i dunno, sometimes i just like a really heavy, headlight racquet... at least while practicing! the blxproopen really seems to kill my wrist too but maybe any racquet does that.
hopefully the demo helps me make up my mind at least.
hope the weather is nice next week. usually a tw demo order means 3 weeks of 50mph winds and nonstop rain. eeeeeps
auzzie: please come to kenmore courts next tuesday and thursday for 4 hour hits. thanks!
T is USTA GOAT captain
i'll show up if you ordered the correct string pattern of the Six.One 95...
Baby S hitting yet?
i think there is only one string pattern of this stick...
the red/white ones with the thicker beams have 2 string patterns... i've played those before and like them but i wanted to try the thinner 18mm frame.
chalk it up to some stupidly confusing naming scheme by wilson. much clearer to say STEAM or JUICE. but doesn't mean it doesn't sound dumb!
Wilson BLX Pro Staff Six.One 95
95 sq. in. / 612.9 sq. cm.
Length: 27in / 68.58cm

oh right, so you only want 2x 4 hour days? kinda a short amount of demo time...
My tril-level captain!
Yes, I joined the dark side.
topaz, were u in the pic?
Hmmm, seeing as how that is a picture of his 5.0 team that won Nationals, I'd have to say...nooooo....lol.
on of my (soon to be) mixed partners is in there!
TM, what are you hitting with these days?
cb-i am pooped. just got back from hitting. 2hrs non stop. played against captain of harvard's club team.
okay. was about to call you today as well. Daughter is sick and grandparents are coming in about an hour. Can we play later today. n/m. We can play another day. When's good for you?
TM and i were somehow talking about modern day flamethrowers and how far they can shoot
as opposed to the WWII style throwers
What's everyone's plan for the weekend? Anyone hitting? How about Monday?
My MMA instructor has a fight this Saturday so no practice for me on Saturday or Monday... I need to do something.
Anyone like to shoot guns? I have lots of guns. I think it would be hilarious to see Sappy shoot one of my AR-15's.
just txt-ed dats.. the wife wants me out of the house on sat. i'm up for something. i'd be down for shooting as well.
Dats, didn't know you wanted to try that ps95 out. I've had for a while & it's not as whippy/HL as the TW numbers suggest.
kind of plays stiff...body was sore after hitting with it...
dood, my wrist is all blowed up from yesterdays serving extravaganza.
i think i should put the racquets away for the weekend so i will be able to use my demos when the arrive. i can hit backhands still though.
i threw the wilson in there last.. it was either that, or a prince exo tour, or a donnay gold99. anyway, i really like the head grip shape so i hope one of the prestiges work out or that i click again with the igSPEED.
i might not be able to play tennis anymore with this wrist pain. so it will just be to hang on the wall and tell stories about all my krushing viktorieez agianst the Oz-man!
dats, you want me to get you one of these widgets to make your wrist stronger?? side note.. what's going on sat.
