Weekend Wrap Up

It was another busy weekend at the Odell house. Friday night started off with dinner and drinks at Rock Bottom before heading over to see The Wizard of Oz at the Paramount. Once again, I drank one beer too many, ate a few bites too many, and had a marvelous time with Joel. We both really enjoyed the show; I even heard Joel laugh out loud a few times! Unfortunately, Sunday was the last day of the show, but if it ever comes to town again, you should check it out!

What a handsome date!

I'm not sure why, but I look so shy here - like I'm not sure what to do with a beer this big.
Oh, I know what to do... drink that baby!

Joel went with the Tillamook Bacon Burger and I ordered the Brew House Chicken. Both were very good!

Considering we bought our tickets three days before the show, we had pretty good seats.
Even from way up here, the view was great and the show amazing!
On Saturday we were in our blackout husky gear and down at the stadium for the Husky football game against our rivals, the Oregon Ducks. Aside from the few fans who had too much to drink and took this rival thing a bit too far, it was a good game. We were on our feet, cheering hard for our Dawgs but in the end the Ducks took home the win. Joel's friend Luther, from his High School days, joined us after the game for dinner and drinks at Elliott Bay Brewing Company's Lake City Public House and Brewery. What a mouthful! It was fun to listen to Joel and Luther catch up on the last few years.

Duck is on the menu - Let's go Dawgs!
Joel and I tailgate in the Tyee Club area at Merk's Dawg House - come on by if you are ever at the game.
That's right, Will Ferrell was cheering on the Dawgs!

And louder we got!

First score for the Dawgs!


Half time show with the band.

Sunday was filled with laundry, cleaning the house, and of course, the Seahawks! Jackie and Chris came over to watch the game with us and hang out. It was a painful fun game to watch and thankfully we pulled out the win in the end. Jackie made us a sweet potato curry soup that was so good, I am going to have to get that recipe from her. I made Joel an apple crisp (it came out of the oven too late in the evening for Jackie and Chris to joins in). A pretty nice fall weekend; beer, football, friends, soup and apple crisp. I heart the fall.
I hope everyone else had an equally fun weekend!

  1. I watched the game from the comfort of my home :) looks like you guys had a blast! Wonder why Will was in town? He's one of my fave actors!

  2. Watched for Will at the Hawks game but didn't see him. :-( We are at the Wizard of Oz during the Husky/Duck game, and originally Stew was super annoyed, but once he got out and saw the score he wasn't as sad that he missed it.

  3. Just out of pure curiosity, how much does it cost to have season tickets? It seems like it would be a lot! haha Looks like a tone of fun though. My cousin just started at UW this fall, she is in a sorority and she loves it!
