Today is a double-post day….
Last weekend I went to Atlantic City to see my friend Zed Mitchell in an MMA fight. The entire experience was incredible. I had never been to Atlantic City, let alone the state of New Jersey, and neither one let me down. The best part was being able to reconnect with one of my best college friends. It is always a good feeling to see an old friend doing well and looking happy. I took a train from DC in to Atlantic City with a pitstop in Philly. Train traveling, I’ve decided, is one on my absolute favorite things. It is romantic, quiet, and cozy. I arrived in AC feeling Zen but as soon as Megan picked me up we were non-stop on the move. I got a quick tour of the city before we headed to the Borgata hotel and casino for the fight. Majority of my trip was spent watching the fight but I also tried my (un)luck at slots, stayed in a hotel that was so bad it was funny, and took a nice stroll on the boardwalk with coffee in hand. I’d say that Jersey was pretty good to me!
