Last night, after going to the Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band rehearsal and getting a sneak preview of Sunday's show, I wanted to go out for a drink. Now, normally when I go out for a drink, I'll go to Orleans, 'cause they have the awesome couches and delicious froofy drinks (the chocolate peppermint martini is to die for). But also, the crowd is basically my crowd: late-20s to late-30s yuppy types. There are always some trendy long-haired blonde girls in jeans and black t-shirts, but there are also always some people who look like they'd be interesting to talk to.
But last night, Orleans was closed for a private party, so dancingwolfgrrl and I went to the Joshua Tree, instead. This was kind of anthropologically fun and interesting, because it made me realize how very much not my crowd a bunch of college sports fans are.
So that was interesting, but I don't really feel like I got my relaxing drink out of my system, even though the margarita was good and tasted like summer.
