Last night I started at the Flying Saucer, where Mikey the Monk did his final Octoberfest blessing of the kegs.
After that I went home and changed into my Halloween costume. The gang reconvened at the Saucer about 8:00.
While there I got my picture taken with two of my favorite Saucer girls. These two are absolute sweethearts and great servers. If you go to the Saucer and happen to land in their section please tip them well. Later on in this post we’re going to meet some Saucer waitresses who are not so nice.
We then moved on to the Halloween party at my apartment building, Number 10 Main. As you can see below the event was covered by society columnist Michael Donahue.
And now we take a look at a few of the costumes seen at this year’s Number 10 party. We’ll start with one of my neighbors and a regular blog reader, dressed as a fairy. When I took her picture she asked with hesitation, “….. Are you going to put this on the blog?” Which pretty much guaranteed her a starring role in today’s post.
A popular thing to do in Memphis is to play the race card, and it was certainly played well at the party last night.
Here we see a Catholic priest conveying a blessing on a young boy with his holy juices.
About 11:45 the unthinkable happened – the party ran out of beer. Needless to say, things wound down very quickly after that. I decided to go back to the Saucer to have one beer and wait a few tables.
Due to unusual circumstances, though, I ended up staying at the Saucer a lot longer than one beer. (How many times have I typed that in a blog post?) Take a good look at the two photos below. The two Saucer girls pictured below practically raped me in front of the pool table while the band played.
They double-teamed me… one would distract me and the other would run by and pull up my skirt, grab my ass, etc. The little blonde in the second picture, with the dark grey pullover, darklights and fake tan, had particularly wandering hands and also stole several dollars out of my tip cup. These girls absolutely violated me and I don’t know if I’ll ever recover from the emotional and psychological distress it caused.
This morning I thought about calling my friend Bo who’s a lawyer to see about getting restraining orders against these two, but I came up with a better idea… one that requires help from you, my readers. If you go to the Saucer and happen to get either of these two girls as your server, tip them a penny and write “PAUL’S REVENGE” on the receipt.
After the girls were done molesting me, they asked if they could put makeup on me and I agreed. Why I thought that was a good idea at the time I’ll never know. Wait, I do know: People were buying me Jager. That’s why. So the girls got their purses and applied lipstick, eyeshadow, and whatever that stuff is girls put on their cheeks. They also put ribbons in my hair. Here’s a pic of the final product:
Oh and they put a name tag on me that said “My name is Paula.” I prefer Pauliana as my Beer Goddess name, as it’s a veiled reference to the only girl in Saucer history who was a worse waitress than me.
Stayed at the Saucer until close at 2… thought about Raiford’s but didn’t see the point in paying a hefty cover for only an hour of partying. About 2:15 I got a text from my friends Mikey and Skippy telling me that they took first place in Raiford’s costume contest. Let’s have a look at their costumes:
Total tip money for the evening: $9, although about half of that got stolen and the remainder got soaked with beer. I’m trying to break my $29 record from last year, with two days left in the costume to do it.
On the agenda for today: RiverArtsFest during the day. Tonight it’ll be the Saucer’s Halloween party and then McGuinness.
Brunch will be at the Majestic tomorrow, although it’s possible that a good many of us will be too hung over to make it.
Thanks to those of you who read that I joined Facebook and added me as a friend. There’s still not much to see there yet, as I haven’t had time and likely won’t this weekend. If you want to add me, it’s under my email@example.com address.
Time to get the day started. Lots more pictures will be taken this weekend.
