Well, we survived/ate our way through the great blizzard of 2013. We broke out our shovels and forks, piled the snow and stuffed our faces. We surfed some big icy waves when we could finally get on the road. So we’re back to regular operating hours and regular eating practices (the 3 day long eating binge is over!) Here are a few pics from the storm – mostly from our neighborhood because we couldn’t get out!! but hey our hometown made the front page of the new york times
Took a quick jaunt to PR last weekend, spent our time in and around the San Juan area. Stopped and checked out Senzala Tattoo in old San Juan, ate some great meals – mofongo at Mi Casita in Isla Verde and some real authentic Puerto Rican food at El Jibarito in old San Juan. Visited the Castillo de San Cristóbal and sipped on plenty of rum drinks at the beach and pool
Then there was the surfing portion, i know everybody goes to rincon when they’re in PR, but there is plenty of surf to be found in the San Juan area. I wound up at La Ocho with the help of a very friendly surf shop owner. I had la8 surfshop reccomended to us from the guys at Velauno Paddleboarding, and couldn’t have been happier. Peter the owner took great care of us – with his knowledge and gear. I would definately recommend anyone who his going to be in the San Juan area to go and check out la8 surfshop, Peter is definately an ambassador of the aloha spirit!!
The surf was decent, head high reef break but a bit windy. The paddle out wasn’t too bad 100-200 yards over some shallower reef. There was some real shredding going on in the lineup, and everyone was friendly. One of the locals even helped me navigate the reef paddling back in. (pics are from the day after)
2nd convention is the past month or so is done!! Had a great time in Rhode Island over the weekend. Ate some good food at the Cuban Revolution, Trinity brewhouse and Tortilla Flats – Providence definately has some good eats goin on!! Spent some quality time with the guys and gals from Holdfast Machining and Sin Alley Tattoo and made some tattoos too!! Sin Alley Tattoo owner Mike Fasulo had some of his rides on display right near the booth – the 4 and 2 wheeled varieties, super custom and super sick!! Back in Boston now getting down to some serious tattooing. More conventions on the horizon, we’ll update as they’re confirmed
