Trying to figure out what to do between 4 and 5 PM today

The Liberty Bowl parade is at 3 PM today on Beale Street, and I most definitely will be there.  Look for me – I’ll have this on:

GO HOGS!!!  Now, here’s the dilemma.  Parades last about an hour, so the Liberty Bowl parade will be over about 4.  The Saucer doesn’t open until 5.  What are we supposed to do between 4 and 5?  Even if they had Turbo Dog as the Fire Sale and Brittney behind the bar, that’d be an improvement over not being open at all.

Hmmm there’s the Tap Room, with 20 beers on tap and a full liquor bar.  Plus, I could visit my mug.  Superior Bar usually has good happy hour specials on domestics, although I’m not 100% positive whether those apply on holidays.

Or we could do what we do last year, and go stand outside the Saucer’s door, and act like such obnoxious pains in the ass that the manager lets us in early.

Happy new year everyone.  I ended up doing the ultimate New Year’s Eve plan last night… nothing.  I sat around and played on PokerStars until about 9 last night.  Considered going out, but my body was telling me “time to hit the reset button” and get a full night’s sleep without any alcohol in my system that needed to be processed.  So I went to bed early, although the party nearby at the Cadre Building kept me drifting in and out of sleep until 1:30 or so.

I’m totally fine missing New Year’s Eve… the real party Downtown starts today, and keeps going until about December 30.  I hate it that I missed Dynaflow at Calhoun’s last night though… wish they’d book them on just a regular Friday or Saturday night sometime, when it’s not NYE, DTO or some other event.  I’d definitely like to hear them.
