Only FIVE beers on a Monday night? Are you sure you’re reading the right blog?

Unusual Monday night, as I only had five beers, and only four of them were at the Saucer.  Can’t remember the last time that happened.  Couple of reasons for it though.  One is that I really am slammed at work this week, and can’t afford to go in hung over.  I need every brain cell I can get for the next four days.  Second of all, it was about to rain.  I did my first four beers at the Saucer, then headed south to Calhoun’s to see Best Pool Partner Ever Lauren.  Had one beer and the sausage and cheese plate there.  Hang on, let’s post a pic of the sausage and cheese plate.



It’s the most expensive item on the food menu – $8.00 – but it’s a lot of food.  I couldn’t finish it and I was hungry.  It’s a lot more than what you’d get on the sausage and cheese plate at Huey’s for nearly the same price.

If you’ve ever been to Calhoun’s, you know that they give you markers and can write on the bar there.  Look what I found on the bar tonight (click for larger image):



I drank my beer, at most of my food, tabbed out, and walked up Main.  It was starting to thunder.  I usually don’t take the trolley, but as I approached the Huling stop I decided to make an exception.  A couple of blocks after I got on, it started to pour.  I would’ve been soaked if I hadn’t made that decision.  Good trolley karma.  With the Madison/Main stop practically at my front door, I stayed dry.

Sat at the window with Bicycle Bobby earlier in the evening at the Saucer.  We watched a guy walk down the street with a Victoria’s Secret bag.  He’s buying a gift for his girlfriend, I thought.  Or maybe not.  Do I have any readers who are current or former Victoria’s Secret employees?  I’d be curious how often they get men in there wanting to go in the dressing rooms and try on the lingerie.  I bet it happens more often than you’d suspect.

On the way to the Saucer, I ran into my friend Suzy, who wished me a happy belated Easter.  WTF?  Easter was 8 days ago.  Maybe she just left Walgreens, where they had a lot of leftover Easter candy on sale.  Can’t imagine why else she’d have Easter on her mind.

Off to bed.  I feel like I’m letting my readers down by calling it quits so early on Pint Nite, but work does call.  Nevertheless, I can promise there will be at least 2 posts tomorrow, so check back.
