Light Rail Pub Crawl #1

Well, first off...I was excited all day about going on this particular pub crawl for two reasons: 1.) i've never done it and i was in the mood and 2.) there were a lot of great girls going so even if the crawl sucked, we'd still have fun.

The pub crawl started at 3:00p.m; but, we (Dena, Sally, Candy, Janet and I) decided we'd head out at 1:00 to get some food near the first bar.

We went to Cafe Bernardo and Janet and I split the Veggie burger which is to DIE for. And i had a bowl of potato leek soup too...mmm, mm..good! And of course our first libation of the day.


(Janet is very easy to please...)

Off to Fox & Goose.

When we got there, there were like 2 people and they weren't there for the pub crawl.

It was 2:45. I was getting worried. finally ONE guy shows up at 2:50 and says we're to MEET at 3:00; we don't catch the train til 3:45...oooooh....they were giving us time to drink.

but i was giving us WAY more time to drink. oh well. This is the leader and his two buddies.


a KILT! I felt right at home...thank you Scottie...

And of course, we're wired and ready to go!



(L to R: Sally, Candy, me, Dena & Janet)

After Fox & Goose, Janet and I have to run to the bank to get some cash. We tell teh whole group, who were VERY inclusive and warm which was nice, that we'd meet them at the 13th street station.

Course as we're sitting at the station, Janet mentions that we're at 11th street. Den'as calling; "Where are you guys?"

SHIT! We run to the nearest station, knocking on the wrong car door until the group comes out of the first car and waves us over...we hop on and if you've ever been on city transportation after hours, it's really fun. (sarcastic) I sat across from two sweet homeless black men. One was singing to me so i told him he had a beautiful voice and he should always sing. he started crying!~! oh i know that feeling, mister...i do....

here was his buddy that was tyring to get a hug from Janet but she was worried about lice...or getting some of his Old English 800 on her...



and the crew on light rail:


On to Henry's Lounge which was a VERY seedy & dark bar that kinda smells like a urine cake and had a few beers there...after that, we went to Gallaghers which is a MUCH cleaner and nice Irish pub.


We met two DARLING girls there. ( they reminded me of when Dena and I were young & hot ; ) Natalie and Deeana.



They're the two girls in the back. right next to teh guy holding the "Dive Bar" flag...hahaha

After Gallaghers we hopped on light rail and headed to Del Paso Blvd. That even sounds ghetto...Janet almost got her ass kicked by some youngin's on the train that didn't like tall, happy-spirited white women but I reeled her in and taught her some street smarts quickly.

The next bar was Night Hawk. Now, there, the bartenders there have about 7 teeth between them and their dress code is a 3 teeth minimum. Their bathroom has a SHOWER CURTAIN FOR A STALL!!

But even funnier was Sally being able to use her breasteses as a beer cozy.

and funnier still, was our friend Dena, whom we've known for over 20 years, has become gay. So when she took a drink off Sally's beer, using her straw, Sally wanted another straw mumbling something about "i know where that mouth has been..."

Off and walking....

Yay!! I get to hold the dive bar flag...

The next stop was an unplanned one at a lovely wine bar.

They had a cool "back yard"with plastic couches, torches and a view of some seedy hotel pool. okay, that part wasn't great but their yard was...


After this, we went to the Stoney Inn but they had closed down. It was some mexican restaurant that had a huge dance floor. Now, it's here i'm getting fuzzy so i'll speak little and show lots.








Well, the rest of the night was something like another bar stop, walking on the rail road tracks for what seemed like ever, eating pizza, and passing out.

I'd say that was a pretty successful first Light Rail Pub Crawl....thanks GUYS!!!

we are VERY cautious (unless we're hammered) at all bars...it IS bar hpping but it's an organized hop. you start at one bar and every hour move on to the next. it's WAY fun but you can get WAY hammered...which also means fun..h.ahahaha..i funny.
