Bar Hopping

D and I met DP (D's brother) at Old Zinnie's on Monday. We got there around 6:00 and DP arrived shortly thereafter. He got a beer at the bar and then returned to the bar to retrieve his chilled Patron. Uh oh. DP doesn't normally get Patron during the week. Not to be outdone, I went and order D and I pink lemonades. We toasted Monday and threw back the shots. We stayed there for a couple of hours and started talking about Alex's Tavern and how long it had been since we'd been there. DP suggested we head down there and we all agreed. I kept telling them they didn't take debit cards but they insisted there was no place in town that didn't take cards.

Upon arrival at Alex's, D asked about the cards. They shook their heads no. Luckily, I have about $14 in my pocket. That bought us 3 beers. D decided she wanted to hang out so a cash machine was in order. Being in a really bad part of town, D had to drive several miles in order to feel safe enough.

D came back and DP had ordered a burger. Alex's is famous for their burgers. D decided she wanted one too. I had eaten leftover pizza so I passed. I ordered more beer instead.

We stayed there for about two hours and then he'd had enough. We paid up and dropped him off at his car. We weren't done so we headed to the Bayou. This is definitely one of our main hangouts. It had cooled off just enough to sit outside. It was pretty dead so we had our pick of the tables. We ordered beers. About 30 minutes later, I noticed a Jeep Cherokee speeding down Idlewild. It was going really, really fast. All of the sudden, it took the corner in front of Maggie's Pharm. We heard a loud bang and then the Jeep took off. It had hit the curb and then a car. That person must've been trashed.

We paid our bill and went to The Blue Monkey. We drove by to see the damaged car. D had called the police but they never showed up. Thanks. Anyway, the Jeep had been abandoned at the apartments at the end of the street. We had no idea where the driver ended up.

The Blue Monkey was not very crownded. We saw W from the Bayou and MJ from Pizza Cafe playing pool so we headed over to play. We played 3 or 4 games and then hit the trivia machine. It was getting real late so we packed it in and headed home.

Tuesday I felt like complete ass.
