So, a group of friends go to a bar....
We went out last night to hear Lana sing for the first time since last May. Dinner was nice and as alway we enjoyed the band. The thing is that it amazes me how drop down drunk some people get.
I am no saint, by any means. I had my days of heavy drinking in my twenties and early thirties and even now will drink VERY occasionally. I'm a cheap date in my old age. I'm not even against young adults having that kind of fun as long as they aren't driving. Some of these people though are just out there.
Last May when we went to hear this band, WG was there, acting the exact same way he was acting last night, almost a year later. Then the other cast members got really interesting.
DM comes up front to dance and as our group has the table nearest the stage, DM turns to Robyn and HANDS HIM HER COAT TO HOLD! Drunk and rude, what a charming combination. SG, SGF and DM got to dancing together and they fell over one of the band's speakers; one huge drunken mess on the floor. WG continues his very loud "Whooo"s up front as he stands there with his hand in the air. DM gets up and retrieves his coat, while SG and SGF start kissing on the floor (I'm not making this up). DG is shaking her booty all over the place and Lisa was thankful she did not have a pole as heaven knows, she'd of used it. SG and friend vanish over to the bar for a moment and then they come back and continue dancing. We can only assume that SGR, who we believe is the boyfriend of SGF had stated that they were leaving as when SG returned to the front of the room, she was carrying her coat. They started dancing again and then SG turns to Robyn and asks her if she can HOLD HER COAT! At that point, Lisa, Phil, Deanna and I all yelled "NO!".
SG looks slightly indignant and holds her own coat. Faster song is over and most people sit back down, while SG remains standing in the front. SGR comes up to her, not looking pleased and harshly tells her they are leaving and she needs to come on.
I was amazed by most of it and only because most of these people were not in their twenties! DG was probably in her mid-twenties and she would have been okay, had she not kept looking to see who was watching her dance.
When the band finished for the night, Lana sat down to talk to us, and WG kept coming up to her and saying "I'm sorry. Hey, I'm sorry." When asked what he was sorry about, he only apologized again. So, he patted poor Robyn on the head (she was sitting on the end unfortunately and therefore was easily accessible for all the crazies) and again apologized.
So, all in all, an entertaining evening and I'm thankful that no one at our table spent today nursing the huge hangovers the cast probably did.
