Keep your single friends close
We piled in my SUV in search of ladies night FUN. What we got was:
-- A bar with a good band and no people.
-- A bar with a banjo and lots of odd people.
-- And, after driving from Pok-Newburgh-New Paltz, a bar with a DJ and four people in their late 30s trying to do the electric slide to "Party Like a Rockstar."
The problem: 1) College was out. 2) It was raining. 3) The Yankees were playing.
But the NO. 1 Factor against us: We have been out of that scene for four years.
We had no idea what bars are good on what nights.
Had one of us been single, I'm pretty sure she would have been able to provide a list of what bands/DJs play where, what the scene is like, who the bartenders are, if the crowd is cool and what the specials are.
Heck, she probably would have given the bouncer a kiss hello, and in we went, had there been even a slight line.
Lesson learned -- consult w/ my single, bar hoping, beer chugging friends before a ladies night out!
