Weekend Rewind: August 27-28th, 2011

Look me in the eyes and tell me you didn't see this one coming...
sooooooooooooo beyond obvious, I know I know!

The entire weekend I wore the same outfit, so we're not even going to break it down by dates really.
Let's just group the entire weekend of August 27th-28th, 2011 under one category, one name, one super awesome title:
"ROCK YOU LIKE A HURRICANE weekend"
That's right; you know I live on the east coast, you know Hurricane Irene threated to rear her ugly face at NYC, and you should know I'm gonna give her ugly face right back!
I'm ready to go out in all my rock n roll glory!

We were a little frightened, not gonna lie.
So some of us single ladies got together to hold down the fort and brave the storm together...

We started at the bar, to get our game faces on!
(and to forget about the doom and destruction that lie hours ahead)
'Cause if you're gonna tell Hurricane Irene to, "F-off", you might want a little liquid courage in ya!
F-off Hurricane Irene
It turns out, NYers handled the storm preparation differently than others. 
I went to the bar w/an umbrella...these two got ready for looting and mass chaos in the streets!

Then the rain started to come.
Out w/the umbrellas, and enough of their plans to loot.

These boys got down right emotional and busted out a bromance before our very eyes!

(oh what the end of the world won't do to two metalheads...
best sight I saw all day, I laughed naturally!  DORKS!)

But I ain't got a romance; so I just kept on drinkin'
hurricane-day
provoking Irene w/my hurricane-like dance moves,

and heading for safer shelter, rather than The Charleston...ok, so actually I just got hungry.

So while most of NY was preparing for the storm that threatened to DESTROY...
storefront3ducttape
I grubbed on a homeade mexican feast of tacos and burritos!
And I didn't even have to lift a finger-cause this girl can't cook!
But to be fair, I did bring the produce...so thank you for cooking me dinner Tom, glad my veggies came in handy!

******************
We all passed out watching True Romance, and awoke around 1:30am to the strongest winds I've probably ever heard in my life.  Pounding rain and what looked like an upcoming zombie apocolypse...yikes!
I believe the eye of the storm lulled us all back to sleep around 2:30am...then up and at 'em come 9:30am on Sunday.

This is what happened!
OHHHHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYYY!
downsign3
By "this is what happened", I mean I was up walking around Brooklyn in my pajamas at 9:30am.  They were talking like we were going to lose our lives, so I think for strangers to see me in PJs is the least of our concerns here.
nickie-downsign
It is a well known fact, I do NOT take mother nature as seriously as one should.  Hence the bubble blowing side ponytail wearing wannabe 12yr old I appear to be in front of this sign wreckage.
And, while I realize the hurricane was NOT nearly as exciting as I hoped it would be...I will say I am happy it did not really kill us.
It just kinda took down parts of our 'hood, but eveyrone in hipsterville seemed to make it out A-OK.
hurricanedestruction-househurricanedestruction-cartreetree6tree4hurricanedestruction-trees2meter
Including myself...
Phew...because we all want this "way too old to live in Williamsburg" almost 32yr old hipster to keep on bloggin' right?

I mean who else can you count on to pick up a storm wrecked dirty ol' street meter and put it up to her face with an "OMG" face???
You can continue to count on this one!
'nuff said!
meterandtree
So while the flooding was minor, and not nearly what it was in other necks of the woods,
flood2
and mostly our intrigue for damages got the best of us...
treeandcristina
We are most definitely thankful the storm didn't result in the end of our awesome selves!
flood
Because really, who else was gonna put on a "new" vintage motley crue tshirt and rock the weekend like a hurricane?
Um, certainly not Irene!
rockulikeahurricane2rockulikeahurricane
And yes, I went full force grubster this weekend...only showering 1x.
Sooooooooooo unheard of if you know my totally high-maintenance self
(true, i do look like i spend all of 10min on getting ready, but its more like 60-90min if you want to know the REAL facts)

And therefore, all weekend I wore this:
*Vintage Motley Crue tshirt-courtesty of college buddy's older bro
*Cut off jean shorts-Gap
*Black booties-Steve Madden
*Black polka dot neckerchief-Express

This is probably the most entertaining recap of Hurricane Irene I've read all week. Loved it!

I never knew a hurricane could be so fun. Usually when big storms happen in my area, I'm just hanging out in a basement. In doesn't even compare to what you guys were up to!

Hey, it takes effort to look like you just got out of bed, right?

Haha. I have to say you did not let me down one little bit in this post. Thank god I'm home alone because I was sitting here giggling to myself the whole way through. You are hilarious. And in the picture of you and Tom in the kitchen, all I can hear is you saying "Ok, but Maresa, REGARDLESS if Irene is coming or not, I'm still going to eat this."

Hurricane Irene clearly met her match.
