My parents came up and visited this weekend. Unfortunatly for my comedy, I love my parents and we have a very functional relationship together. They don’t understand where my need to perform on stage comes from, but what they can understand is our shared love for all things fermented, but not distilled, so basically beer and wine. On saturday, we made like any upper middle class white family with kids over 21 and visited the great warehouse wineries of Woodinville, Washington. Six wineries later we ended up at Redhook brewery and captured this picture which looks strangly like a version of my bearded self 4 months ago (see “Images” section).

I think I’m doing a pretty good job holding it together in my sunglass that I think were stolen from my couisn’s Bat Mitzvah. I need sunglasses like 17 days out of the year here, and I usually loose things like that, so I haven’t invested in a decent pair. My parents and I shared some nachos, which were of course, the best nachos we had ever had, but that could have been the 6 wine tastings and a pint of beer talking. On the way out, my parents attempted to buy me a hat…

Ya I didn’t end up getting a hat, and my Dad still wonders why I insist on making faces like this when he tries to take a picture of me sometimes. After a long family dinner at my grandfather’s condo, my parents saw me do standup for the first time live at Laughs Comedy Spot in Kirkland. They then promply passed out from the long day and I had to drive them home. Thanks Mom and Dad for the awesome weekend and all the support!
