WeissFest 2013 - David Weiss

"A Walk in the Park"

May 5, 2013 (Cinco de Mayo) was a very special but scaled down WeissFest for 2 reasons. The newest member of WeissFest, Juliet Lan, The Cauc-Asian Sensation, participated for the first time and it was also the first time a non-Weiss was allowed to participate, Yangztse Doodle Dandy's mom, Su-per Po Po.

Our first stop was the Time Warner building on Columbus Circle for breakfast at Bouchon Bakery. MyErica the Beautiful won the Dictator's Favorites contest and received a shiny new Israeli Tour Book. Juliet was awarded a special WeissFest sweatshirt.

Our next stop was the Central Park Zoo. Juliet's favorite exhibit was the Tropical Zone where she mimicked the birds and flapped her arms like wings. We all ate Chips and Guacamole and washed it down with Margaritas to honor Cinco De Mayo.

After the zoo, Juliet took a nap and the two teams competed for the coveted WeissFest Globe. For the second straight year, the team of Yangztse Doodle Dandy and Duh-vid Re Todd took home the prize. For their efforts, they received 2 pies from Briamere Farms. Still Scott-free on the Rent was not happy because his teammate once again left him to go look at hawks.

After a nice day in the park, we all walked over to 9th Ave. to Pure Thai Shop for a delicious dinner.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Top of the Muffin to you!  ( ask Scott about this )
Welcome to WeissFest 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Spring is almost here, and we all must shift our focus to our annual Festival.  In the immortal words of Vince Lombardi, “ WeissFest isn’t the most important thing, it’s the only thing! “
So, we must put careers, raising babies ( Juliet will have to take care of herself for a while ), and bulldogs on the back-burner and concentrate on imageimage.
This year, of course, is a little different, so WeissFest 2013 will reflect that change in our lives.  Racing around NYC, in and out of the car is probably not a good idea.  ButWeissFest will still go on, but we’ll tone it down a little bit this year.  We’ll still have a competition for the Globe, but no guess the location.
Hopefully, next year we will return to normal, with a full-blown Fest.

As you know, there will not be a “ Guess the location contest “ this year.  In its place, welcome to the first ( and probably only ) Dictator’s Favorites Contest
 
This contest is all about my favorites, not yours.  Just hit reply and place an X next to each answer that you think is my favorite.
 
In case of a tie, time of submittal will be the tiebreaker.
 
I will email to my answers to myself, so that I can’t be accused of cheating or showing favoritism.
 
The winner will get a prize on the day of WeissFest!!!
