December to Remember: What Can I Get You? [210/365]

BartendingIf you needed a Long Island Iced Tea, a Zombie, a Woo-Woo, you name it I made it.  Many of my friends were shocked and didn’t believe me, but I tended a bar for four months (Thursday – Sunday nights) at The Mirage nightclub in Southeast Washington, D.C.  Yes, THE Mirage.  Yes, in “Soufeas” in the mid-90s. It was an adventure.  I met a cast of characters, I had my regulars and I made some great tips.  I was still working my noon to 8pm shift at the TV station Monday through Fridays.  When I would take my tips over to the bank across the street from the station, located in a more affluent area of Northwest Washington, D.C., there were times the teller would give me the side-eye.  Not that it was any of their business but I assured them all of those singles were from mixing drinks.  Good grief!

December to Remember: True Grit [194/365]

Meet Me at the Go-GoHands down – this is my favorite and funniest photo from my high school days.  To go to a Go-Go performance in the 80s was a big deal as a teenager in the DC area.  This was taken at the Rare Essence show at Sidwell Friends.  Cardinal rules for picture posing at a Go-Go: (1) there must be a graffiti backdrop or a large fan back wicker chair to sit in or stand around, (2) no smiling allowed and (3) athletic gear is desired attire.  We’ve got that covered.  Now, let’s all Do the Mickey, the Happy Feet or Run Joe.

There’s a New Church on Thomas Circle [161/365]

Washington, D.C. has some of the most beautiful churches.  I suppose this artist was inspired to create his own design today for a house of worship across the circle from my office building (on the left).  I’m interested to see if he and his handy work will be there in the morning.
