In addition to eating, I also did a lot of drinking in Binghamton, aided by the fact that the bars are open until 3AM. Friday night we went to see Ryan's brother's band play, and Saturday night I attended his parents annual holiday party. Both nights were loads of fun, but the highlight of the weekend was definitely the human pyramid we constructed shortly after midnight on Saturday...a triumphant feat of agility and strength!
Binghamton may not be your typical vacation destination, (for a very apt description, take a listen to Dar Williams' Southern California Wants to be Western New York.) but I enjoyed exploring the area and will likely return. Still on the to-do list: carousels and pierogies. I had a great time with the Binghamton folks at Eri and Ryan's wedding earlier this year, so it was a lot of fun to visit them on their home turf.
