Friday night recap/Saturday update

Had a lot of fun last night at the Warehouse party at Front and G.E. Patterson.  The Warehouse is the private residence of Kris K. (abbreviated so I don’t misspell his last name) and last night was his birthday party.  About 200 of his closest friends showed up and had a great old time.  We watched the Tigers destroy Michigan State on the big screen.  As I pointed out to the Nuh-Uh Girl, that makes Memphis the only team from Tennessee to make it to the Elite Eight this year.  The Nuh-Uh Girl was strangely quiet.

What a blast.  There was beer, there were chicken tenders from Gus’s, there were bands.  With the big, open space, it kind of felt like a rave, but with much better music and people ranging in age from 21 to 70.  Kris is one of the people who makes Downtown so special.  Happy birthday.

Caught up with Glo and Flo, my guest bloggers who haven’t handed in any posts even though they’ve talked about it for four weeks now.  “We’ve been out of town a lot,” Flo told me.  Oh, okay, that explains it, since the Internet is only accessible here in Memphis, you know.  Flo had on some black leather pants and was looking extremely hot.

I must’ve had 10 people come up to me and say, “I know you, you’re the blogger dude!” last night.  Also had one person who said, “Hey, you’re the guy with the website about the bums!”

Earlier in the evening I stopped by the Saucer to do my plate beers.  It was a sad occasion, as it was my BFF’s final shift there.  I hate to admit it, but I’ll miss her when I’m at the Saucer.  Who’s going to cuss me out, punch me, and insult me now?  The good news is that I’m a big fan of the place where my BFF will now be working, so she’ll still be mentioned from time to time in the blog.  Also, her mini-me will still be at the Saucer.  To give you an idea of how much turnover there is at that place, the mini-me was hired in December and I think she’s now the fourth most senior waitress on the floor.

Previous total:  $887.75

Beers 155, 156, and 157 (but 150, 151, and 152 according to the Saucer):
Corsendonk Brown $8.00
North Coast Old Stock $8.00
Unibroue Trois Pistoles $7.00
Tip $23.00 x ~30% = $7.00
Total:  $30.00

Grand total:  $917.75

I skipped Trolley Tour.  I was excited about it earlier in the week, but with 45-degree temperatures I knew it wouldn’t be a good one.  Looking forward to April though.

After I left the Warehouse party I did a second stint at the Saucer, then hit the Red Rooster for about an hour, which put me home at 3 AM.  Attn Jeff:  WTF were you wearing last night?  Are you trying to be Robby Bobby’s adopted son?  Does your uncle Paul M know you wear outfits like that?

Right around the time I left, Red Rooster co-owner Robby Bobby got on stage and told the crowd that he’d give $50 to the fifth person to text “Robby Bobby” to his cell.  He’s quite a character, that Robby Bobby.  With Snozberry playing tonight and absolutely nothing else on the radar for plans, I may be back at the Rooster.

But before I do that, I have to go drink some beer.  Friends have texted me that Bridgeport IPA is the Fire Sale today.  That’s a great beer and I’ve never, ever seen it on Fire Sale before.  I don’t think I’ve knocked it off my plate yet either.

Xavier plays UCLA at 5:40, and Louisville plays North Carolina at 8:05, for spots in the Final Four.   (Hey, you know who’s NOT playing today?  Tennessee!)  Tomorrow the Tigers play Texas at 1:20 and Kansas plays Davidson at 4:05.  Go Tigers!
