I love this bar

I had dinner and drinks tonight with K & R at Skipper's Smokehouse while watching The Bogus Pomp Low Budget Acoustic Orchestra. It was a nice, relaxing way to wind down the weekend and once again, I left Skipper's wondering why I don't go there more often. I have never not had a good time there. The place itself is funky, in that it looks like it was built (actually compiled might be a better word) one wall at a time. The music is always great, the food is good and I love the people who go there. I don't actually know any of them, but that doesn't matter. I love them because as a group, they're thoroughly saturated with un-full-of-shit-edness. And when it comes right down to it, that's really all I want out of people, which isn't that much to ask, if you think about it. I mean honestly, black, white, Jewish, Muslim, Protestant, straight, gay, conervative, liberal, hell, even Canadien, I don't care. Be that, be those, whatever you want. I don't need to find common ground between us; just don't be full of shit about being that/those that you are and you and I will get along fine. Oh, that and don't try to convince me to be one of whatever you are. Thanks. Now, try the crab cakes, don't forget to tip your server and be sure to enjoy Walter Trout.

You want to be a middle-aged, mini-van driving, poker playing house frau! I know you do! Admit it!

Come this way, I'll indoctrinate you...

'Zooks, as attractive as all that sounds, I'm afraid I have to draw the line at driving the minivan. I just can't do it.
