Friday night was a lot more fun and far cheaper. Yael and I joined Leigh (Jeff's girlfriend) at Johnny's Icehouse to watch Jeff's team trounce their opponent in hockey, 13-1, two goals of which were Jeff's, from defense. We hung out there afterwards at the little tavern in the rink and had a celebratory drink before heading out. Whoever heard of such a hockey score?! Now the 4th weekend has officially begun and the neighborhood sounds like a war zone. Mortars are exploding fairly regularly, along with the machine gun shots of firecrackers. Though, in my neighborhood, you never know, it might not be fireworks. Actually, it's not that bad, but there was that one time...
Church early tomorrow; the boss lady is out of town on vacation, so I don't think I have to do anything, unless it's pinch hit. I should probably still go to both services, just to be a presence so folks get as much time seeing me around as possible. Grrr...8am...
Yeah - covers for "atmosphere" or drink specials are pretty much a one-way ticket somewhere else where I'm concerned. There are some places around here that charge a cover if you're under 21 - the premise, I guess, is that you can't buy alcohol and so the place needs to make some money off of you, but charging folks of legal drinking age for the privilege of paying to drink is just wrong.
