Well, I am a little disappointed in my performance with Lincoln. No matter what I tried to do, I couldn't get Lincoln out on the weekend. So here you see Lincoln and I playing a little Cube Wars!
(at my shop Walnut Creek, California)

Here Lincoln and I decided to check out a place called Mazza Grill. The food was Greek/Mediterranean and rather tasty although I knew this Mazza was not our Lux Mazza because there was NO BEER on the menu. Freaking imposters!

Lincoln is in Transit right now back to jesterme and from there who knows? At some point Lincoln and I will hook up again and I will try to show you Luxers what beautiful northern California is all about.

This Week.....

Lincoln Travels to Cabo San Lucas!

Image

The picture above is at Cabo San Lucas Marina where Lincoln is enjoying a Margarita and is pictured in front of the "Attessa" Yacht owned by this dude:

The G20 is in town so all the big wigs and heads of state were arriving...that with all the Policia Federales driving around with machine guns made for quite a sight!

Anyways, the next picture is of Lincoln in front of the Cliffs at the southern point of CSL, as viewed from our Hotel:

Image

We took Lincoln to a neat little restaurant several blocks off of the beaten path after we decided to walk around for a while and look for lunch. We found a spot "Menudo Birria" and dropped in. A nice lady made us fresh corn tortillas, a comfort soup (Menudo) with Tripe and Pork Rinds, a great Goat Stew (birria), and an awesome filet of fish (Pescado Empanzado) to make fish tacos with. Here is a picture of wifey feeding Lincoln a fish taco, and the lovely chef:

Finally, Lincoln at "Mi Casa" restaurant (A bit touristy, but fun) helping me finish off the bottle of Malbec:

Lincoln Goes to Philly and Cleveland

Post by Capicola » Tue Jun 26, 2012 7:17 pm

Hi all,

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Lincoln a few months ago. Here are just a few of the pictures of our travels together.

Cleveland, OH
Image
There's not much to see in Cleveland, but Lincoln insisted that if we go anywhere, we better go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Please note both of Cleveland's buildings in the background (the Key Bank Building in front, Tower City in the back).

Image
A bit more intimate.



Philadelphia, PA

Image
Lincoln asked that I take him right to the heart of it all, so here we are in front of City Hall, located right in the center of the city of Philadelphia.


Image
Lincoln did not care much for history, but I insisted that we check out Old City for some colonial good times. Here is Lincoln, chilling up in front of Independence Hall, where our American forefathers famously signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

Image

Last, but certainly not least, Lincoln insisted that we take a trip across the street, so that he could take a shot with The Liberty Bell.

All in all, it was a pretty great time. I miss you every day, Lincoln. Every day.

Lincoln is finally ready for another appearance. Get excited!

I had the pleasure of spending a few fabulous days galavanting around Chicago with Mr. Lincoln.

First, we decided we should both experience our first Cubs game at Wrigley Field together:
Image

He took the game very seriously:
Image

Standing up for a better view of things:
Image

Next, Mr. President wanted to work on his tan, so I took him to the shores of Lake Michigan:
Image

Abe and I walking hand in hand along the beach:
Image

Finally, Lincoln insisted upon gazing into his reflection at "the bean" downtown:
Image
Image

After all our fun, the ex-president was even humble enough take public transportation, waiting for the L to arrive to take us home:
Image

My apologies to everyone if Lincoln overstayed his time with me, but we were having so much fun after all.

Well, THIS is embarrassing, Jews aren't really known for proselytizing, but when I explained to Lincoln about the Passover Seder, and its celebration of freedom, he decided right then and there to convert. (I'm sure it had NOTHING to do with the 4-cups of wine served at the seder). Oh and he also insisted I no longer call him by his "slave name" (?) but rather refer to him as "Avraham"

Somewhere between "Dayeinu" and the 3rd cup of mine, "Avraham" disappeared after trying to "take me to a gay bar"

I found him this morning:

Image

I think he's beginning to outstay his welcome. Where's he off to next?

After many months of Abe and I together... alone.... we have finally departed from each other. My roommates and I sat down and discussed the future of Lincoln, I don't remember exactly when I got him, but If I were to guess I've had him for 5 months or so. We decided it was time he left the top of the fridge, and he no longer needed to watch over us.

So to Para he went. Here are a few pictures of our adventure.

Of course Abe was playing a good amount of Lux over the months.

Image

Abe liked hanging around with some of our decorations around the apartment.

Image
Image

I grew out the beard for this picture! Twins?!

Image

I took good ole Abe out to my friend's outdoor wedding, we had a blast!

Image
Image

This is where he spent most of his time when he wasn't playing Lux, he watched over the apartment for us, keeping us honest.
