Back at The Tap

November 21st, 2012 · No Comments

Last night we caught up with friends at the Village Tap. I feel like we hadn’t seen the Tap crew for so long so it was great to catch up, even on a busy week.

No, that is not really how Dallas holds babies!

Grandma Crowell

Sad news. Dallas’s Grandma Crowell passed away yesterday. I had the pleasure of hanging out with her quite a few times on visits to Hawaii over the years. For the last several years her health has not been great and earlier this year she moved to Arizona to be closer to Dallas’s sister, who is a nurse. I still remember the first few times I hung out with Grandma and I remember the spark she had.

Dallas grew up living first in his grandparent’s house on Kauai, and then in a separate house, but on the same property. To say they were all close would be an understatement. I may not have known her in her prime, but over the last eight years I have heard many stories from Dallas. His grandma was a great lady and will be missed dearly.


Grandma, when I first met her back in 2004, with Cousin, Kristin, Dallas and me.

Retro on Roscoe

Cousins! Halle & Quinn


Halle, Brian, and Jill


Ed giving Quinn a drink (that he doesn’t want)!


Bridget, Maggie, Conor and Liam trying not to fall off the hammock.


Rory, Jill & Halle


Halle said, “Rory is cute!” She was having a great time playing with him.


Conor didn’t want to smile. He was busy eating his pineapple!


Cousin playing beer pong …..


…. and sinking it in Chad’s cup, to his astonishment!

This is at least the 6th year that I have gone to the Retro on Roscoe street festival. Chad and Jen had their annual party and we came and went from the festival. Dallas and I were more than a little bit tired from the Crosby’s opening the night before, so we were way more chill than previous years. We still had a great time, though. Like other years, there was a lot of beer pong being played in the garage. I played 2 games, but not very well. At the fest, there were a lot of 80s cover bands playing. One crazy thing this year is that Roscoe Village Neighbors association is now asking $10 per person to get in. It all goes to a good cause, the schools and improving the neighborhood, but wow, that’s double what other street fests charge. At about 8:30 I was so done! I went home and couldn’t even watch one TV show without falling asleep. Long day! (And long night the night before!)
