So while I am camped out by the window and getting work done, I often see some of the most amazing (and bizarre) shit. For example:
We also came across a group of tourists from Montreal, who heard that we carried Habs games here.
They rolled in, saw the game on TV and went nuts! They immediately made their presence felt and got the rest of the crowd going, singing "Go Habs Go" whenever they made a great play. The Habs fell behind 3-0, rallied to cut the league to 3-2 but eventually falling short, losing the game and disappointing the fans at the bar. The good news is that they still lead the series, 2-1. Next game: Thursday night (7pm, w/audio).
During the course of the game, we got a visit from our favorite group of Aussies, members of the Australian Army. They come by the bar every time they visit NYC and they are a fun bunch of guys. So there they are, holding court at the front end of the bar when a couple of young ladies come in. As it turns out, they were Aussies as well. Well, as one would expect, they hit it off and began hanging out with one another, going drink for drink, shot for shot. Of course, the girls can't keep up and one of them went outside "for air"... which led to a nice puddle of puke on the sidewalk. Great.
To make matters worse, doll baby then proceeds to stagger back in and I could tell immediately that her time in the rodeo was up. As I made my way over to her, she made a beeline over towards the back of the bar. I think she was trying to find the bathroom, but instead, she found the back room and when she tried to open the closet door, she fell back and broke our tabletop. Great. Buh-bye kiddo. Of course, she tried to come back in a few times but I put the kibbosh on that quickly.
The hijinks for the evening finally ended with us tossing out a drunk couple in the middle of a breakup. One minute, they would be talking, next minute, both of them would be crying. One would storm out of the bar and come back in a few minutes later, then the other would do the same thing. Finally I had enough of the drama and tossed both of them out. Idiots. Of course, as I look down the block, there they are, making out and dry-humping in the middle of 3rd Avenue. You can't make this stuff up.
