How come the older I get the more 'painful' having a good time gets?? I'm pretty sure the tequila had something to do with it, and I'm sure more things will come to me today about last night too!! lol
There is a new place out near where I live that a few of my friends have been trying to get me to go to.........Jim and I and 2 other couples went there for dinner last night and I love this place! It is an old warehouse that was converted into several different levels of bars and seating areas where one solid wall is floor to ceiling 8 foot by 8 foot televisions! There had to be 30 of these babies on that one wall alone! Talk about a sportsman's lil bit of heaven...every sport conceivable was on a TV somewhere in there, they even had OTB (off track betting) I had so much fun there, I didn't want to leave. I think I could of gotten away with it too, there are so many places to hide!! lol The Martini and Cigar Bar in the upstairs loft was beautiful with it's 1940's theme. Big cushy leather couches and chairs, u-shaped booths....very glam! I didn't do so well playing the ponies though and I'm thinking that cigar might be another reason I'm feeling a lil green around the gills this morning too! lol
The next part of the evening was spent at another new haunt in the area where we hooked up with 5 more couples for drinks, conversation and a few games of darts. We decided after singing a rather loud, rather off key rendition out loud along with the juke box to 4 non blondes song called "What's going on" that we decided we wanted to go out dancing and karaok(ing) after that. That's the best part about being 40 something.....you could care less about how you look to other people, we were having a blast and that is all that mattered.
So it was on to another bar, one where we knew they had karaoke every Friday night and we could easily make a dancing area somewhere in there. So we sang, we danced, we made some new friends and I seem to be soooooo paying for it this morning from my tequila challenged brain, to my sore dart arm, to my aching feet brought on by my latest pair of killer boots and my over strained vocal cords that are suffering from that cigar too I am sure.
I hope my arm recovers fast cuz it's Sunday and Sunday is bowling night ( I'm sucha Graboswki I love to bowl) but I'm gonna have to just say "NO!" to that Patrone! (tequila) tonight. We are cooking out at the lake later today with some of our friends again.....I will be laughing at all the blood shot eyes hidden behind those sun glasses ....but I'll be laughing very quietly .......Oh Vey!!!!!!
I remember my 20's.........I could do this night after night and want to! Now I'm just happy to do a couple times a month! lol lol lol
