Best Weekend... EVER!!!

My weekends are usually pretty awesome; weather and money permitting, of course. However, this weekend will definitely go on the books as one of the best ever! Friday started with perfect weather; mid 60's and tons of sun. When I got off from work, I took a scooter ride through the city and stopped by my favorite comic book store; Casablanca Comics. There, I found an issue of the Amazing Spider-man that I needed for my collection. When I went up to pay, I was told that I had a $5 back issue credit! After that, I went back home to meet my family to go out to our favorite Japanese buffet and then to see X-Men (which was just behind X2 as best in the franchise)! Not a bad Friday, eh?



Most of Saturday was spent yard-sailing around the city in which I found a pair of my favorite style of boot-cut jeans and a practically brand-new Sublime t-shirt. After lunch, the wife and I hopped on the scooter and went to the "Flea For All"; a great antique & collectible shop featuring three-stories of dusty goodness! There we found an antique tribal mask for our bedroom. After that, we tried out a new antique and collectible shop called "Uptown Antiques and Treasures" on Forest Ave. This place has a wide variety of collectibles, including my favorites; comics and toys! It was here that I had my biggest weekend score; a copy of the Amazing Spider-Man #20 featuring the 1st appearance of one of my favorite villains; The Scorpion, in Very Good+ condition for... wait for it... $30!!! Marked down from $50!!! Those of you in the know are aware of what an amazing deal this was. I also had the chance to meet and haggle with Charlie; the owner of this fine establishment and one helluva nice guy. There is no doubt I will be back for more! Later, we went out to dinner at The Portland Lobster Company, where we got to sit out on the water and enjoy the best Lobster Roll in Maine with fried clams and yummy beer! But wait, there's more; we finished off our evening by roaming the city and catching the hilarious new Jon Favreau flick; Chef.







Today, we spent nearly the entire day hanging out on the beach, playing Bocce Ball with the family and cooking burgers on the grill. Not too shabby of a weekend, huh?
