Last Call

My friends forgave me for the AA 12 step program apology post I had written prior to this, and went out with me for a few cocktails last night. And yes, of course I have the pictures for evidence, as always.
It started out nice. We were pacing ourselves, socializing and just having a great time. Here’s my friends Jodie and Brianna. They called me up last night and said, “Deb, come on out.” And I never hardly go out on Friday evenings because Madelene has to get up for work early the next day—so Saturday is our out night. Bri was very convincing though. I went by myself to head all the way upstate to join the gang. I think Bri hit the sauce a little earlier in the evening--but that's okay--we won't say a word.

Umm… Bartender! Bartender! Can you stop drinking for five minutes and bring me a beer please? Now I’ve heard of taking a few swings here and there while tending bar, but this girl was ripe. She was ready to party on the job. I was ready with my camera and luckily got a few nice shots of this beauty (even though she looks as though someone viciously attacked her in this shot—she's still a looker.) All the guys in the background over there were really, really thirsty. After her shift, she flew over to the dance floor to work off some of that lethal potion she was taking shots of. So here’s the deal. This bar generates a lot of gay clientele. We have a mix at this place since Alyssa and her band drum up a good crowd. The girl in the blue was doing some sort of tribal dance I wasn't familiar with. And yes, that is a girl on the left.

Alyssa and her band rocked! This girl shouldn't be doing bar gigs, she should be selling millions with that voice of hers. She's not only a talented singer and guitarist; she entertains the crowd with her raw and cynical sense of humor.

The night’s never complete without your fill of Jack Daniel’s apparel. Just when I thought Alyssa was original and ‘unique’ for wearing this, I saw another person walk into the bar with the same shirt on. It’s like prom night all over again when another girl is wearing the same dress as you.

Sounds as if you had a pleasurable night out! And tonight, being Saturday, I hope you’re having another.

Friday nite I ended up downtown at a small coffee/bistro/winebar with my friend Kelly. Kelly and I are both straight so we were a bit clueless that we had wandered into a place with a very eclectic crowd *L*. They had a very good light menu, fabulous athmosphere, a great folk singer along with a very friendly clientele. (at least I think they were friendly, Kelly is a gorgeous blonde and pulling a lot of attention *L*) I think we will go back again.

BTW,,,the tea selection was AWESOME

Deb Darlin, you must have a liver of cast iron ;-)

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

that is why I could not be a bartender, I would end up looking like that woman, and oh what a sight that would be.

Casually Me said...

I would love to party with that crowd...

Jon said...

Looks like fun. Wish I was there.

What doo you say when someone wearing the same shirt/outfit comes up to you and complements you on your choice of clothes?... "Ya, well it looks better on me"

luckysevn said...

You guys look like you have so much fun!!! Now I wanna see some dancing on the bar!!!

Jon said...

BTW, Jack makes me want to hurl. Jameson on the other hand.... MMMmmmmm.

I still have not figured out why tequila makes a girl horny. Someone clue me in.

normiekins said...

Looks like you had a great time deb!!!!

Mike said...

You were wearing a prom dress? I'd have paid money to see that.

*snickers*

AWE said...

Considering the Jack Daniel's distillery is about 2 hours away. That shirt is common in the bars around here. I would be suprized to go out and not see one.

So, how bad was your hangover?

AngryMan said...

Nothing tops the Assjack rip-off of the Jack Daniels logo. Oh, and Assjack is a terrible band, I saw them as an opening act.

DSMars said...

Sounds like fun. I got off the wagon for a night this weekend and had a really good time. I think it will probably be another 3 years before I drink again, though. I proved to myself that even with alcohol, I'm still uptight in public settings.

Grace said...

Mmmm drinks... it's been a while since I've had any, and those bar pics of yours made me crave some. Maybe I'll go on downstairs and have me a little bit of tequila, or maybe rum, or maybe both. Later! ;)

Walking Contradiction said...

good times!

Sounds like a fun time ~Deb

kathi said...

I love that you always have your camera, I wish I did that.
Looks like y'all had fun, maybe you can put one of Alyssa's songs up here so we can hear her and soon she will be playing for millions.
love ya!

Leesa said...

My hubbie has this huge digital camera because he wants great pics. But I am not going to slip it in a purse or anything, so we take far fewer pics. Does that make any sense?

Oh, and the evening sounds like a blast.

Natalia said...

I'm with Kathi...I am amzed at your ability to just whip out that camera and record all this stuff. And it's not like I don't have a digital cam and it's not like it isn't small and portable. I just don't seem to be able to whip it out and start snapping unless it's like a major moment or something. Ugh. Maybe I will take your cue and start doing it.

Sounds like a great night! But why the bad time over the AA post?

I was feeling it.
