I went to The Sandbar after work on Monday to see Dave and check out the new Buzztime Trivia. Oh, and to maybe have a drink, too.
One of the band guys, Nick, was working the 5-9 shift. The bar was deserted.
"Wow, it's not very busy in here!"
"No, it's been pretty quiet. How are you doing?"
"Great, thanks. How are you?"
"Good. Can I get you something to drink" he said as he put one of the Sandbar coasters on the bar, just like he's supposed to do. Those band guys pay attention and follow directions.
"Yeah, I know it's cold outside, but I really want a Pina Colada. But can you put it in the small rocks glass instead of the big glass, I don't want to freeze to death."
"Sure. Can I see some ID?"
The conversation stopped and I just kind of looked at him.
"Ummm…I'm Dave's wife?" which was code for "I'm 33 years old!" and also "I know I've met you before and we just had this conversation like people who know each other!"
At that point, Dave walked in and laughed. "You've met my wife before haven't you?!?"
It's good to know that the staff is doing what they're supposed to be doing and carding people. Like I said, those band guys do what they're told. And it's been awhile since I've been carded so I took it as a compliment.
