First Impression Review: Longshot Lounge

Longshot Restaurant & Lounge

Saturday night. I have no idea why people have warned me away from this place. But this is a first impression so we’ll see.

First off A+++++ for the bathroom. It was so spotless. All night too. The other bathroom was ok. No paper towels, LOL, but clean.

The place was clean. It’s big in there. I met up with a friend and waited for karaoke. The sound was good for the Karaoke and the KJ was really nice. Pretty good song selection.

I also watched the poker game a little and part of a dart competition. Everyone was super friendly and looked like they were having a great time. I had a great time. Ran into a friend from another bar I hadn’t seen in a long time, so that was cool too. Resisted temptation and only bought a single $1.00 scratch ticket from the lotto machine!!

The drink specials were awesome and Holly and Casey, the bartenders were really sweet and nice. I looked over the menu and talked to some of the regulars and they suggested to try nearly everything on it. I didn’t get a chance this time, but it all looked really tasty and the prices were good.

It’s not exactly in what I consider a public transit friendly spot, but it wasn’t too horribly difficult to get to. If you want to stay til close however, you’re gonna want a car or cab fare.

For some reason it was a slow night at the bar, but that I don’t mind when it’s my first time at a place.

I know I’ve not been doing my normal format for these. If I continue to find new places to try, I’ll go back to a more uniform look.

Anyway, I’ll definitely check this place out again. I’m looking forward to it.

A feeling that an emotional or traumatic experience has been resolved.

The long drive home, Vegas aftermath

My side of the story.

No apologies. They won’t apologize to me for what they’ve done so I don’t see any reason to apologize for my reactions and behavior.

So this starts with my first (mini) interstate road trip as an adult. In the last post I mentioned how the traveling groups had to be rearranged due to Girlfriend #2 and The Guy not getting along anymore. (I wish I had seen more of what happened during the vacation.) This is what happened next.

Confrontations and Realizations

That is a good bingo, ladies and gentlemen. Are there anymore bingo’s? No? We now declare this session closed. Please pay the winner.

The Good:

Her, “Sorry, guess that was a mouthful.” Slight Pause. Me, “That’s what she said.”

Realization: Damn, I actually *like* him!

I always think I’m not an extrovert… and then I go and prove myself wrong.

G50 – Good-Bye 2013

Forget you!

Yep. That’s pretty much how I feel about 2013. A lot of my friends agree.

The Good: 

That’s the start of a really bad porn.”

So we ended up at our regular place for NYE. I had actually started drinking a little while I was getting ready so that I would be “prepared” to sing. For some reason, I cannot stand to sing while sober. It doesn’t sound good to me, though I have been assured that my voice is great. It was nice hanging out with my buddies. All of us girls were appropriately rowdy but not over the top.
