The Hot Club

Chuck D Computer was talking about the Big Blue Bug on Rte. 95 and asked what its name is. I thought he meant what the owner's name is. Chuck said the bug is called Nibbles Woodaway.

Congrats to Chuck who just finished his run in the play I Ought To Be In Pictures. He did his last show Sunday and the play was well received. He brought along his stage manager Kim to the Hot Club to celebrate. Kim asked us if the Hot Club ever had 'live entertainment'. Wise and I almost simultaneously replied, "We're the live entertainment."

Chuck had been staying away from the Hot Club. I told him that he had been avoiding the HC because it was an 'occasion of sin'. That reminded me of going on a St. Raphael's Academy retreat and the priest in the confessional telling me I had to stop dating my steady girlfriend because she was an "occasion of sin". I did so. That was the last time.

Word has it that Hooks is getting 'hooked up' with an old friend from the past. He's having a mutual female friend act as a go-between. When we heard of this, the Warden told Hooks, "Don't mention my name."

5 Angels stopped by and since he's a big Rolling Stones fan, I asked him something I haven't been able to verify in a long time - that Keith Richards real last name is Richard. 5 Angels agreed with me that there is no 's' in Keith's last name.

The Warden was standing on the small deck lost in thought. A woman asked him what he was thinking. Said the Warden, "I'm trying to decide if I'll meet the woman I'll marry tonight."

Two guys were using the HC urinals, which are very close together. Said one, "Queer guys would like this. They'd be tapping their dicks together." Said the other "Yeah, a sword fight."

We were standing in the men's room line (it was Friday and they were celebrating Cinco de Mayo). Someone complained about the wait. Beau walked by and overheard the comment. Noting the line of women waiting for the ladies' room, Beau said, "I don't know why anyone complains about standing in line for the men's room."

Jay, who used to bartend at the Hi Hat, stopped by. He complimented Mr. D. on his ability to handle his tequila. Jay said he tells people: "There's a guy who drinks Sauza Hornitos on the rocks. He has a few and walks out the same way he walked in."
