WEEKEND: Beer and BBQ and Spring Breakers.

Drinking in the sun.

The weather this weekend was perfect. And not just "for Arizona." It was in the 70's, the sun was shining (and not in that usual, beating down on you way), and there was a slight breeze. I had to be outside or I was going to explode.

My friends and I went to Chandler's Great American Beer and BBQ Festival. This is an annual event and if I'm still in Arizona next year, I'll probably go back. Tickets were $10 and drink tickets were $5 each (And honestly, we were getting mixed drinks, so that's not bad at all). And then, the prices of the BBQ varied from place to place.

We stayed for about three hours and then it really started to get crowded - I guess everyone else wanted to spend some time outside too. 


On Sunday, we went to see Spring Breakers. I really enjoyed it, but I went in with the expectation of it being incredibly dark. My friends and I were mostly interested in it because James Franco looks a lot like our favorite rapper - Riff Raff. The narrative was disjointed and the way it was filmed made me honestly feel like I was on drugs, but it was incredibly well done. I don't think everyone is going to like this movie and I feel bad for all the little girls that show up thinking it's going to be just a fun American Pie-type party movie featuring Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens. What I'm trying to say is - See it, but be prepared that it's pretty dark.

I had a great weekend. Drinking in the sun is one of my favorite activities. What did you do this weekend? Let me know in the comments!
