Haven't had much blogging time lately, so here's the scoop on stuff that's going on. (The Reader's Digest condensed version.)
I decided to go out, even though I didn't expect much, it being Tuesday and all. The first stop was the Allegro. I know I said I wasn't going to hang there much, but Tuesday is "Service Industry" night and cocktails were only $1 each. I couldn't resist a bargain like that. The cheap drinks weren't enough to make me stay for long, though. It was like a ghost town in there: myself, the bartender, and two others. They need to find a way to increase their business or they're gonna close down soon, I just know it. It's a shame, really. The Allegro used to be such a fun place.
Anyway, The next stop was Central Station
. It was Karaoke Night there, hosted by the biggest loudmouth drag queen in Baltimore, Tia Chambers. I usually avoid it at all costs, but believe it or not, there wasn't anything else going on. It was OK. I spent most of the time upstairs in the video bar to avoid all the wailing and caterwauling. Aside from the bartender singing Shakira at me ("I'll be there and you'll be near--and that's the deal my dear!") and a cute barback accidently spilling beer on me, nothing exciting happened. I stayed 'til Last Call and then went home and slept like a big ol' snorin' baby.
I had to go back to work Wednesday. It was pretty much uneventful. Work's been kind of slow lately. After work I went to Blockbuster and rented the DVD, Dahmer
. It was about Jeffrey dahmer, the serial killer, of course, and it really was Worth Seeing. It wasn't as gory as I expected, which was good. The movie makes you get into Dahmer's head and it's a very creepy
place to be. I hadn't heard a whisper
of this movie, so I was surprised when I saw it there.
Worked a day shift that day. It was supposed
to be a double, but they didn't need me after all. I debated on whether or not I wanted to go to The Hippo
for Men's Night, but I decided against it. Instead I ended up going to Leon's
for a couple of drinks. You can say what you want about Leon's (and most people do), but I love that place. You don't feel like you have to put on your best clothes, or even do your hair to go there. And the bartenders are really friendly, too. (Thanks for everything, Doris!)
I work again tonight. In fact, I gotta start getting ready soon.
