Break from the Heat


I’m really digging this bit of cooler weather. I had a nice afternoon on Tuesday, milling around on the gateway bridge, snapping pictures (like the one above), but mostly just enjoying the awesome breeze. Followed that up by an evening on the town. Met the metbloggers at Red Door for drinks out on the deck, and then over to Blue Bar for a while. I hadn’t been to Blue Bar since it was that seafood place Atlantis. Talk about a blast from the past — the fancy foyer with the hostess stand is now the darts room. Go figure.

Now we just need someone to open up a place called White Bar, so we can have the most patriotic mid-town bar strip in the country. Although, the intent behind a bar called the “White Bar” might be tragically misunderstood. (I think I made this joke on Tuesday — mmm, recycled material — and someone said “what do you mean? Every bar in midtown is a white bar.”) Although, even at Blue Bar, some obviously crazy guy at the pool table kept yelling across the place “HEY I BET THAT CHINAMAN O’ER THERE CAN PLAY POOL”. Chinaman. I hadn’t heard that one in a while — way to go, dude. Bringin back some old-school racism.
