DOW (Drinks of the Week)

Well this week I don’t come to you with a specific drink.  This week I bring a venue that is awesome and the good time we had with an unexpected couple.  This week we hopped on a chance to have dinner and drinks with a couple that we don’t normally hang out with.  We all follow each other on social media but have never actually had a night out before.  So when they said they were heading out for dinner we jumped at the chance to catch up with them for dinner and drinks.

It was about 6 when our UBER driver pulled up to take us to Chesapeake Inn.  The driver, Na’Sha, who just happens to live a block away. pulled up in front of the house to take us out.  I love UBER because you get to meet really interesting people.  Na’Sha, a mother of three, who is a nurse out of Philadelphia was also working a creating a healthy brand of baby food.  She drove the UBER for her side hustle to pay for everything that goes into trying to create the line of baby food.  I love hearing about people who are willing to work so hard.  During our drive we also found out that her middle child and our oldest were in the same class together in school.  We did and up convincing her that her and her husband should go to Chesapeake Inn this weekend.  The world gets really small when you start to talk to people.

We got to Chesapeake Inn around 630 and moved up to the bar to order drinks and wait on the other couple.  They were running late because there babysitter was stuck in traffic.  So me and the wife sat and chatted for a bit.  The weather was a perfect and the tiki bar was packed full of people.  The wife order an Orange Crush and I got a Sam Adams Summer Ale.  The Orange Crush is one those perfect summer drinks.  After two rounds of that we decided to get a table as the other couple got closer to their arrival.

Mike and Tina arrived around 730.  We were on our third drinks at this point and had scarfed down some delicious crab dip.  It took all of about two minutes to realize that we were going to have a good night.  Nikki ordered a drink that was some fruity concoction IMG_3671of fruit, vodka, and amazing.  I stuck with the Summer ales and I can no longer recall what Mike and Tina got.  We all ordered sushi, yeah sushi, it was F#$%^&* Amazing.  Nikki got the Hairy Mexican and I got the TNT Roll.  Mike and Tina destroyed what look like ten rolls.  We sat and talked about so many different things it was really awesome.  You would have thought that we had all been hanging out like this for years  with the conversations being so natural.  Not once was there and uncomfortable pause where we would all have to stare at each other.  After dinner it was to the dance floor.

I think it was 80’s night and there was band playing whose lead singer was a little fella who really believed that he was bigger than he was, it was cute watching him sing like a big boy.  I decided to move onto Jack and Diet and dance at the senior citizen party that was taking place on the dance floor.  I felt like the flash when he is running at light speed and everyone else is slowly moving around him.  About ten minutes into this I began  to feel the effects of the time traveler.  We all danced and had a great time so I have been told.  I tried to order an UBER but my brain and hands were talking two different languages.  Mike was kind enough to get one for all of us.  It was at this point that I entered a new dimension and before I knew it I woke up in my bed.  Once again a succesful time travel session.

I woke up Saturday morning not knowing if I got sick our not.  There wasn’t any evidence of this taking place but my body felt as if it got sick.  I spent most of the morning searching for the evidence like I was searching for murderous clues.  The wife couldn’t confirm my getting sick and I began to believe that it was all made in my head.  Then the wife hears my oldest say “Mommy what is all over your sink.”  Vindicated and a bit disgusted.  At some point during the night I stumbled into the bathroom and got sick in the wife’s sink.  My bad, I got some Clorox wipes and cleaned up my nasty little mess.  I headed back downs stairs and poured a bloody Mary using Sucker Punch Bloody Mary Mix,  Bay Vodka, and some sun and I was back on my feet.

Take a chance at hanging out with a couple that you haven’t hung out with before.  This helped start what I believe to be a fun new friendship.  We are overly surprised and happy with the outcome of last night and can’t wait to hang out again.   Surround yourself with fun people and go have a good time.

See you in the Future – Thee Time Traveler.
