Valentine's day was very nice this year. After last year being a bit of a debacle I think we put together a nice and low key celebration.
On Friday I suprised Kristen with flowers at work and then after she got off we grabbed a pizza at Vines and then went to iO to see a show. The show was pretty mediocre and I didn't take any pictures.
On Saturday, after class, we met our friends Meagan and Michael at Guthrie's Tavern. This is the coolest bar, with a giant closet of board games that you can sit and play.
We decided to start with the game of LIFE. Usually I'm not much of a fan of the roll and move and never think board games. But this game did involve some skill. Making sure you pay off your loans, invest in stocks, etc. None of us had ever played the game to the end, by the rules. It was actually a lot of fun.
In the end, with a whopping 1.8 million dollars in her bank account at retirement, Kristen was the winner. She was happy.
We also attempted to play Balderdash, but it was way to complicated for us when we were drunk. A fun game if we had been sober. So Meagan and Michael headed home while Kristen and I went to iO to see some shows. We met our friends Keith and Drew there.
All in all, it was a good day.
In other news, I wish it was summer. Not necessarily for the warmth of the festivals. I just want to watch some baseball!
