…and to Milan, Ciappa, and Tiggins for making the drive down from Milwaukee for what turned out to be an amazing St. Patrick’s Day weekend last month.

Grey finally met Henson (and partook in some shamrock-themed shenanigans)…

Henson and Grey meet with shamrocks!

…and then Emjo joined us for a lasagna dinner.

Pre-Ween lasagna!

The initial spark for the weekend was Ween, who played two live shows at the Aragon Ballroom on March 16th and 17th (we went to the show on the 17th).

The last time I saw Ween play live—with many of these same friends in attendance—was nearly twenty years ago.

Uncle Milan made Grey laugh…

Milan funny.

…and Ciappa choke.

Milan murder.

And then Marla joined us for a shrimp boil.

Shrimp boil!

Then… things got weird. And drunk. And werewolf-y.

Weird.

In the end, it was a fantastic weekend that made me nostalgic for days past, but also appreciative of lifelong friendships that will certainly last well into the future.

These are just some of the people I love.

Let’s do it again soon,

Well, here are a few from my past.

First, here I am with my high school girlfriend, Abby-René, at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. If I had to guess, this photo was probably shot sometime in May 1993, just after we went to prom.

Look at all that hair!

Next up, me, Abby-René, Beth, and my old friend Elden. This one was also shot at Great America, probably in May 1994, also just after prom.

We're just babies, man!

And finally, here I am with Emily, an old college girlfriend. Apparently, I was unable to buy clothes that actually fit me. Everything I’m wearing is horribly baggy, and I have no idea what’s going on down in my crotch area. This one was shot in the summer of 1995 at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.

No idea what's going on down in my crotch area.

Pretty sure camera phones have forced these into extinction,

…who last week treated me to some awesome VIP treatment.

Very important pass.

We drank a few beers as we enjoyed Dem Atlas…

Dem Atlas!

…Brother Ali…

Brother Ali!

…and Slug and Ant of Atmosphere.

Atmosphere's Slug!

Ali even joined the fellas for a track or two.

Slug and Brother Ali!

Thanks again for the great night, EmJo!

The night ended, as it often does, at McDonald’s,

So many visitors!

…for visiting this past weekend!

Also, thanks to Emily for hanging out with us at the DJ Shadow show!

We went through a lot of beer,

In 2013, we spent it together in Budapest.

In 2014, we spent the day with our friend Rebecca in Brussels.

Last year, we Valentine’d it up with Rebecca and her husband Harry in Istanbul.

And this year, we spent it in America. Chicago, to be exact.

Valentine's Day 2016 with KB and Emily!

Wonder where we’ll spend Valentine’s Day 2017,
