Another lousy day in paradise…
I had to work just long enough to not be able to make it down to Little 5 Points in time for the start of the show at Dad’s Garage, another paid-for wasted. Making the matter more frustrating was the fact that it was not my code that was in error, but rather an IT configuration in Europe. It looks as if my demo today will be okay, but missing one of the big bells-and-whistles because of this.
I decided to eat some chicken tenders at Taco Mac because the ones my friend ordered on Wednesday night looked so good. Naturally the Va-Hi location was jam-packed, so I walked back to my car and drove to Decatur — only to find no parking at the Decatur location as well.
I quickly gave up on my dreams of chicken tenders so I decided to head to Twain’s because I always enjoy their food and beer, and knew I could watch some football there — only to find that they are wrapping up a four-day renovation and were closed.
I will not lie, I was feeling defeated.
Next stop on my comedy of errors was East Atlanta.
With no parking to be found near The Midway Pub, and after I scraped the shit out of the bottom of the Jackmobile on one of the most insidious speed humps I have ever seen, I found street parking and decided to eat dinner at a surprisingly-empty The Elder Tree Public House. I perused the menu for a long time because nothing really jumped out at me and finally decided on a bowl of Irish stew and some loaded fries — only to find out that there was no chili made so I shouldn’t order the fries. I finally changed my order to a sandwich and a wedge salad and by the time I was done with my second beer it was time for me to go home and wallow in my misery.
I was asleep by 10pm, falling asleep in bed while watching this week’s “Top Chef Duels” on my iPad.
I hope that my weekend goes better. I plan to “beat traffic” today to ensure that my ticket for tonight’s performance of “The Savannah Disputation” at Theatrical Outfit does not get squandered. I also hope that I see some of you Monday morning at the church for a little Silk Sheets riding.
