I saw Def Crew was playing at Con Safos so I got on the horn, called MY crew and told one of my favorite bartenders, my home skillet, Miss China Moon that I was coming in to her abode this evening, and to have one of her famous drink specials ready. She chuckles…
We all get there and I see exactly what I want, a hug from Izzy and China’s grinning holding up a bottle of Bacardi. “I saw you come in. The Dominican Goddess has your name on it mami.” I tell her I’m still hooked on those Reggaeton Rainbows and 3 Legged Monkey from the past couple weeks. Time to get up, flirt and shake my groove thang!
The shows going well and the crowd is hyped up on the music; at about 12:30 or so I hop down from my bar stool as I’m about to call it a night because I’ve got a 2 jobs to report to tomorrow/today. One of the owners comes in and whispers to China, by the look of her face and the statement, “why? what for?” I know this can’t be good…” China steps back, puts down the bottles she had been about to serve, turns the bar lights up and walks over to Angela, leaning in and spoke in a low voice. The chain of upset and confused looks continued as the bar manager came behind and asked why the lights were on as of course it wasn’t time for Last Call.
I get back up on my stool and wait. China tells the up and coming patrons that she missed last call and is no longer serving alcohol. No one really frets or objects, but she looks at me and gives me a head nod to follow her around by the kitchen door.
We’re speaking when who walks in? Two of the most Barney Fife looking mugs I’ve ever seen in my life. I swear, a couple McFarland cops with their hands on their hips/guns like they were walking into Who Knows Where. I know they were in Shock and Awe when they saw all those white folks in there.
They must be REALLY bored out there because evidently what happened was the owners came in from that long ass mtg at the village and not 10 mins later, the cops show up just to see if they could catch them fucking up.
Whoa … I mean if some people don’t want to be around people of color why don’t they stop tanning and move to, to, wait, “them coloreds are ALL OVER the place! (banjo music playing in the background…)
I wonder if the board in making their 3 hour decision realize that they just eliminated the income of some really good people.
Four: The number of women bar tenders working some night shifts in this tough economy to help make ends meet. (and no they are NOT all single mothers having a tribe of children.
I guess no ones talking about the stabbing and people being punched out and falling in the water in other McFarland bars on Exchange St., Erling Ave, Sigglekow, Hwy 51 and Larson Beach Rd…
45 – 90 day suspension; hmmm just long enough to bring them to the brink of closing without looking like the bad guys to the public (vs. revoking it completely.) I’m sure this is just what chief Lick Nuts/Leck needed to get his dick rock hard and all this attention will allow him to purchase a new set of tweezers to pull it out with the set of balls he’s missing…
I see from the nbc15.com comments that people really think. Don’t tell me it’s the music being played there one night a week, or that it’s Old School or Marcy and the Highlights on Sundays or Zumba people or the Salsa/Banda heads, etc.
Just be honest with us and above all, be honest with yourselves.
I told China to apply at my job or a couple others for tending bar @ night, they’d love to have her and her crew around no matter what color they are or what music they listen to. I don’t know how her and her beau bought a house out there.
Comments Welcome as always…
