It all started with a long ride from NY to Philly. Matt and I met up with my sister in front of the Tick Tock Diner, the meeting spot for the Bolt Bus. Unfortunately for Matt, he had to sit next to the smelliest dude. To make matters worse, we were running a little late and were afraid we wouldn’t make it in on time. As soon as the bus dropped us off, we went straight to the nastiest bathroom in the train station to change. Not having anything to eat all day, Matt copped an Antie Ann’s Pretzel eating it on the cab to Water Works.
Attention Chicago cabs: you need this shit.
As soon as we arrived, we see Majette, Shuda, and Anthony Serini and their wives/girlfriend. I haven’t seen them in about a year and a half when I was last in Philly. The wedding was small, probably a total of 40 people. When I came to visit for the 4th, the couple told me the whole theme of the wedding was ‘water’. The wedding was held right behind the Art Museum in Water Works and a bottle of water was given to us as we waited for the bride to arrive.
As soon as the wedding was over, we met and greeted Jill and Mike’s parents whom we have never met. I also didn’t meet Lori, Jill’s bridesmaid.
As the Rios’ took photos, we waited getting saucy and filling up on hore d’oeuvres. Bruschetta, egg rolls, strawberries, something in a small cone and some other awesome food I can’t remember kept us good until din-din. Also one of the caterer looked like Vinny Chase. As we took our seats, we found our names attached to a bag with a Charity Water bracelet inside which a donation was made to provide 8 people with clean water.
Leave it up to the Yonkers to come to the wedding with sneakers on. Classy though, classy.
When I took this photo of Team Shuda, I noticed something in the window.
I didn’t know if it was a cat or a boar or what. Mandrews and Shuda checked it, but forgot what it was.
Jamie gettin’ loose and jacked Matt’s hat.
then jacked my glasses
The winds and the rain came down pretty hard knocking this tree display down. I think it even hit one of the caterer’s head.
The hat went everywhere that night.
Thanks goes to new team Rios and their families for having us at the special E™vent.
