Hello friends! I am launching the first of hopefully many installments of the “In Search Of Single Men & Interesting People” Pub Crawl. Yesterday evening, your host boozed it up at two venues across this beautiful city of ours. I plan on reporting my findings, however dull or exciting they may be.*
Last night I started at the much hyped EyeBar. I was there from 8:00 until about 9:30 and except for a few other patrons, it was basically dead. Despite the fact that the bartender said it really gets started around 11, I decided to move on in search of something a little more lively. My compatriot suggested the Hawk & Dove in Capitol Hill, as she said that there are usually some pompous men there in need of an ego-deflate. We were there from about 10:00 until 11:30. While one of the neighborhood drunks tried to join our conversation (unsuccessfully I might add,) the Hawk & Dove was relatively quiet as well.
We are planning on working our way through a list obtained online of 4 star drinking establishments in the city. Stay tuned.
*Velvet is a selfish dating bitch. Any recommendations, positive or otherwise, of certain establishments may be a hoax to divert competition out of the playing field. The preferred dating odds of Velvet are a room full of 98% single, eligible men and 2% women. The women comprised in the 2% must be in Velvet’s party or must be cool enough to hang out with.
