“POETIC DRUNK-NESS” Part 1

poetic-drunkness-2

 I don’t know about you all, but it is hard to find motivation to go back to the work week after a weekend of enjoying all that Austin has to offer. I usually find inspiration in famous quotes I find online, but recently realized some of the best quotes I remember are the ones I’ve read in the bathroom stalls ...

The Story of a Girl and a Dude

flirting_with_guy

This is a story about a girl and a dude. I actually met the girl through other friends that night. Then the dude showed up and one of the most fascinating plot unfolded before my eyes.

It’s Called Bar Etiquette, People!

Etiquette-for-dummies

I don’t mind a crowded bar. People are just hanging out waiting to be served because the bar is busy. But if it’s crowded because people are hanging at the bar even when they’re not ordering, that’s gotta be the most annoying thing ever! “But I don’t have anywhere to put my drink down.” I don’t care. Go find a ...

More Than Pizza: Applying Basic Business Principles to the DJ/Entertainment Industry Part II

Key_to_Success

DJ Bobby West shares his thoughts on the DJ/entertainment industry regarding the selection of music that is provided at bars/clubs. As he explained in Part I, from a business standpoint, it is good practice to provide patrons with other music than Top 40 (i.e. pizza). In Part II, he takes his analogy with the food industry further and gives advice on how to improve the nightlife experience: what to look for when booking a DJ, maintain consistency in your brand, and build a variety.

More Than Pizza: Applying Basic Business Principles to the DJ/Entertainment Industry Part I

pizza

All restaurants are Taco Bell (Not really, but maybe you catch my reference?) Imagine, for a few seconds, that you move away from Austin for a year and then return. On the drive back, you think of all the restaurants you’ve been craving for the past year, but when you get back to Austin, you discover something curious. Your favorite ...

The Group Hook Up Part 1

600-01787831

I love people-watching. I think of it as live entertainment: trying to figure out what people are saying based on their body language and facial expressions. You can tell when a group of guys is eyeing a group of girls, when a couple just had an argument, when a douchebag is about to make a move, when a girl is ...

I usually write about funny and interesting observations I make but I think it’s time for a more serious topic; especially after reading about what happened on New Year’s Eve. It’s about safety, ladies. Yes, ladies, I’m talking to you. If you haven’t read about this tragic story yet. Here’s a gist of it. A 29-year-old teaching assistant and camp ...

Lost & Found: Things SIN People Find at The Bar

empty_box_condoms

Anyone who has ever worked in a bar or nightclub most definitely has a pocket full of stories about crazy things they have witnessed or odd items found in their venue. A recent post from a friend who owns a bar on “Dirty Six” reminded me of this opened and empty box of condoms I found on the floor at ...
