Learning about other cultures through convoluted means...

...A.K.A. what we do in our spare time around here.

Shane and I were bored the other night so we decided to go drive around. We ended up at this store called Five Below where they have random toys and snacks and DVDs and everything is $5 or less. Turns out they have the most random selection of board games. I chose a particularly interesting one called "Little Italy." It's basically a game about being in the Mafia in the good ol' days, and the object is to get the most money without getting caught by the police. The best part is that it was only $5!

The rules were super confusing, not to mention they
went against most conventional board game rules. 

I like to think of myself as a big earner (a whole $13!)

We don't just play potentially offensive board games, we also like to rock out to some sweet jams every now and again. So what better than a group of ex-Amish men? According to Shane, nothing. He has talked nonstop about the Amish Outlaws since he moved up here, so when they had a show in Bel Air, we just had to go. I must say it was very interesting. Their set list included everything from Neon Trees to Bon Jovi (with some Lady Gaga, Sir Mix-a-Lot, and Dropkick Murphys thrown in there).

Blurry, but there were soooo many people there! You couldn't move around. 

I took some videos but they turned out terrible! (we were right next to the speakers at the very very front of the stage) If you want to see what they are like, just check out their website or look on youtube. The show was very entertaining, you can tell they have a lot of fun with it. And according to them, if you don't like it, they'll eat their hats! We all had a really great time, and I am sure that we will be seeing them again the next time they are in town. 

p.s. I really need to get some sort of slideshow feature on here...
