Here’s a play-by-play look at what I did yesterday:
Drank a bottle of champagne at Sleep Out’s… posted Deal of the Week… played NTN Trivia and broke the 300K mark in Players Plus points… walked to the Flying Saucer… drank a fire sale… discovered the Frenchie pictures on my laptop… posted them… walked back to Sleep Out’s… drank a duck fart… ate homemade ice cream that Coffee John brought in… played NTN Poker… walked home to put my laptop away… walked down to Beale Street… stopped in the Tap Room to say hello to my friends Shane and Leigh who were playing pool… walked back down Beale, heading toward Second to go to Big Foot… stopped to give a Romanian a smooch on the cheek… had a 34 oz. beer and chicken wings at Big Foot… regular blog reader Mendi was there with her friend Calvit… it was Calvit’s birthday, so if you see him out, buy him a beer… walked back down to Blues City Cafe to hear FreeWorld… about midnight, went home, went to bed. Only about a 12 and a half hour day yesterday, which is actually a short day for me for a Sunday.
Plans for tonight: Beer. Waitresses. Beer. Waitresses. Beer. Waitresses. Unfortunately the aforementioned Romanian has told me she’s not working tonight, but still, that won’t stop me from enjoying several tasty Pint Nite beers.
The Dempseys play the Saucer this week – Thursday night at 9:30, to be exact.
Was digging through magazines at Tower this weekend and was sad to learn that Syd Barrett, who founded Pink Floyd in 1965 (back then they were called “The” Pink Floyd), died last month at age 60. He was kicked out of the band in 1968 and Pink Floyd went on to record classics like Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall, but I always liked the Syd-era stuff the best. “Interstellar Overdrive” has always been my favorite Floyd song.
Mpact Memphis is having an After Hours at Hattiloo Theater tomorrow night. I probably won’t be able to go because of the trivia team, but I’d like to see the new theater sometime soon.
Lunch is over, back to work.
