Tomorrow night (6/14) we have a group of 40+ heading to the Mann to see Widespread Panic with Gallatic opening. If anyone has interest in joining us at the show or pre/post show parties, send me an email.
I will be watching many of the World Cup games - a benefit from working at home. If people are gathering for the games in town, please keep me in mind as I certainly would be happy to gather for the USA games among others. Yesterday for the Brazil opener we had a large group at Fado in center city. With the somewhat controversy of Klinsmann leaving off Landon Donovan off the roster, I decided to read up about our coach. Good stats as a player and he was even leaning towards youth versus going with the 'stars' even iwhen coaching Germany's national team 10 years ago. The Wikipedia write up is here.
I have been busy analyzing some new real estate investments and will be reaching out to my investor network. If you have some accessible cash to invest and have the interest in real estate investing, please reach out to me for some more details. - Mark
