A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a 50% off sale at Coco & Lilly. Well, yesterday I saw on Twitter that the store is closing tomorrow. So if you want to get down there and get some tube tops at bargain prices, you better do it this weekend.
Very fun night last night. Started at the Saucer. You know those feathers that a lot of girls are getting in their hair lately? A friend of mine is a hair stylist, and he does them. The waitresses were telling me, “Paul, you should get your hair feathered.” HELL NO! That, along with karaoke night at the Monkey, is on the list of things I will NEVER do!
After the Saucer, I stopped by Bardog, then moved on to Paula & Raiford’s Disco. You know what I realized? The best ’70s disco songs are really gay. I mean GAAAAAAAAAY. I realized this when they played “It’s Raining Men” last night. One of the best dance songs ever, but one that will forever be known as the theme song for “Men on Film” on In Living Color. “Dancing Queen” by ABBA? Gaaaay. “YMCA” by the Village People? Gaaaaaaay. “You Make Me Feel Mighty Real” by Sylvester? Gaaaaaaaaaaaaay. All great songs though.
I finally learned how to take photos at Raiford’s without the fog machine ruining them. You go ahead and take the photos, then when you download them, turn the contrast way up. That fixes them pretty well.
Speaking of photos, the photo of Nikki (see the previous post) makes me realize that a Downtown nickname is now in dispute. Up until now, the name “Tube Top Nikki” has referred to the dark-haired Nikki who plays poker at Max’s and wears tube tops in November. However, after last night at Raiford’s, blond Nikki has a legitimate claim to that nickname as well. We need to find a way to settle this once and for all. I’m thinking maybe a grudge match in lime Jello, or pudding. I’ll volunteer to serve as referee.
Finished the night with a 4 AM breakfast at Cockadoos. I love the fact that Cockadoos has Mountain Dew on tap.
Checking Foursquare, I see that I wasn’t the only one out late. The Nuh-Uh Girl regained her mayorship of Club Shadows last night. Wonder if she unlocked the “Cougar” badge as well?
Productive Saturday on tap. Two of the most coveted Downtown mayorships on Foursquare will be mine once again today. Weighing options for tonight. The West Tennessee Wife Swappers, one of the better bands the Saucer books and one that hasn’t played in a while, is there tonight. Another option is to do a South Main night. I’m guaranteed to always know most of the people at Max’s, and I really need to go by Earnestine & Hazel’s and pay Miss Karen and Nate a visit. Then there’s a third option, which is “none of the above.” At this point, all I know is “anything but karaoke” accurately describes this evening’s plans, despite a lecture about karaoke from a friend’s mom via Facebook message.
Time to go out in the heat. How the human race survived for two million years before A/C was invented is a mystery to me.
