A Week In the Life…

Posted on by Roothlus in Blog | Leave a comment

*Archived; click post title to view. Excerpt: I really enjoyed this past week. Monday I went with Amit and Trishelle to Capital City to watch the Saints/Pats game. Capital City is this new sports bar that just opened up that is the sports bars to end all sports bars. Well, at least Hollywood sports bars. It’s got a clubbish feel to it while still having tons and tons of HDTVs adorning the walls. There’s an outside bar for the smokers, …

My First LA Thanksgiving

*Archived; click post title to view. Excerpt: This Thanksgiving was my first away from my family. It’s the first time in my life I’ve not lived in the same state as them. Because I’m going home anyways in a few weeks for the holidays, a wedding, and the PCA it seemed more logical to stay here for Thanksgiving. Also, if you’ve ever seen Funny People there’s a scene where the main characters and their friends, all young professionals and comedians, …

Foxwoods and Then Some

*Archived; click post title to view. Excerpt: Since the last time I blogged, I was en route to the glorious Foxwoods Casino and I say glorious with only a little bit of sarcasm. Before this trip it was total sarcasm but after it, I’ll probably be going back in the future. So I flew Delta for $110 one-way from LA to JFK and then my brother, Justin, drove from JFK to Foxwoods, about a 2.5 hour drive. There were no …

*Archived; click post title to view. Excerpt: Hey fellow UB-ites. I was just trying to think of a way to say people of UB. UBians? I dunno. UB-ites doesn’t sound too bad. Either way, I digress (already). So I’ve been m.i.a. the past couple of weeks. Aruba came and went, not like a midday rain shower, but more like a category 5 hurricane where you’re lucky to get out alive with your liver still in tact. After Aruba, I came …

*Archived; click post title to view. Excerpt: Man, right now television is on fire. This past Sunday might’ve been the greatest Sunday in all of television history. There were like 8 shows that I wanted to watch: Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Family Guy, Bored to Death, Californication, Dexter, Amazing Race (Go Tiffany and Maria!), and Sunday Night Football. It really made my DVR work to it’s limits. It’s so tough to keep up with all of it but I must …

Sports and Kanye West…

*Archived; click post title to view. Excerpt: So this past weekend was awesome. So many great things happened and as a whole September is an unreal month. I’d say it ranks up there with the likes of December and June with July an honorable mention. There is so much going on this month: college football, pro football, real football (soccer hehe), new shows on television, the U.S. Open, the VMAs and the weather is still in top form. Oh and …

Once Upon a Time in Blogsville

*Archived; click post title to view. Excerpt: So it’s official I’ve lived in Los Angeles for exactly one month as of today. And so far, I’ve loved it. I’ve been to a bunch of cool spots and it’s very refreshing to be around more lady friends and have the opportunity to do an array of things on a given day. The lifestyle seems way more upbeat and on the go but not in a NYC kinda way where people are …

I’m Still Here!

*Archived; click post title to view. Excerpt: Hey guys. It’s been a wee bit since I last blogged. Not going to lie, I’ve been a blogging hiatus. The WSOP kind of totally consumed me but don’t fret my blogettes, I’m back! This year’s WSOP was definitely one I’d like to forget. I played 21 events with only 2 cashes for a whopping total of $10k. I will say this though, I definitely ran bad but I wasn’t too happy with …

My First Weekend in Vegas…

*Archived; click post title to view. Excerpt: …needless to say I survived it. I don’t think I’ve had a full weekend of drinking in a long long time. I’m even talking about Sunday night as well. When was the last time you went drinking on a freakin’ Sunday night? I’m usually too bummed out after losing a bunch of money to do anything on Sunday. But not this Sunday. I had time to lose $3k in all the tourneys and …

My Spring Break 2009 – Mayercraft

Posted on by Roothlus in Blog | 1 Comment

*Archived; click post title to view. Excerpt: Hey guys. It’s been a minute since my last blog and I just got back from the time of my life, Mayercraft 2009. It was a cruise on Carnival’s best ship, the Splendor which already sounds like a grand ole time. To make matters better (btw no one ever says this phrase but everyone says to make matters worse. Why?? I don’t know) they decided to get a bunch of bands to play …
