First Impressions and Halloween 2015

NATIV Downtown Denver

I was bored on a Sunday night a few weeks back and stopped in at this place. The door guy was really awesome and explained the nightclub and hotel to me and took me on a mini-tour of the nightclub. (He was also quite handsome, but ahem.) I doubt this is my kind of place. Girls with bodycon dresses and stiletto heels, boys in half casual, half dressy attire with super styled hair. Drinks were also a little pricey for me. The waitresses (all female) and bartenders definitely ran to eye-candy. The DJ was pretty cool. She was the regular house DJ for Saturday nights but had to pull an extra shift due to some event not working out. The bathroom was tidy, also… you know me!!

Halloween 2015

I’m not sure what I was trying to do, but I had an OK time. No plans, so no expectations. I ended up at a place called Lodo’s with my neighbor’s little brother. Ok then.


Anyway, we got there well before cover charge ($15/$20, really??) so we didn’t have to deal with that. The waitstaff was all eye-candy, but very friendly and nice. Unfortunately my claustrophobia and social anxiety kicked in with all the people that showed up to see JoJo .(who I didn’t even realize was going to perform, *sigh*) The whole second story dance floor was swaying and moving under the press of all the people. My nerves were shot. It’s not really my kind of place anyway. The bathroom was spectacular, probably because they had a bathroom attendant. The drinks were reasonably strong and reasonably priced. During the DJ section of the night, I felt really old. People were singing and dancing along to songs I didn’t know. It was a fairly young crowd. I did get a giggle out of the mashup of Nine Inch Nails: Closer and 50 Cent’s In Da Club.

After I managed to escape from Lodo’s I ended up at

Sports Column

It was surprisingly NOT packed. I had a really cheap, strong drink. Just on that basis, I might be back, even though it’s a sports bar. Goodness.

There were some pretty cool costumes during the night. I also ended up chatting with a guy whose name I vaguely recall was David? outside of the Summit Music Hall for the GWAR concert. (Yeah… I think I’ve reviewed that place, ick.) Anyway, we were talking about the Denver Goth Scene and his really cool red and black leather kilt. I hope I run into that dude again, he was really neat.

I ended the night getting a slice of BAKED POTATO PIZZA from Slice Works Lodo.

It was so good (and maybe I was kind of drunk) but it was so good I’ve been dreaming about it. Good GAWDZ. I will definitely be back to that place!

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.

N38 – One Whore, Soap and a Sleigh

TWSS – “She’s got a big one.”


The Good:

“Who knows how to play the skin flute?”

That was a surprisingly filthy comment from that lady while on stage but  Lil Ren’s no hesitation response of “I do!”, had me laughing so hard.

Out of context: “I know that’s beef”

O70 Bingo!

6 months is my limit

The Good:

 “He doesn’t do tricks on Colfax.”

I can have fun here. I’ve made a lot of friends, and there are so many songs to sing. It’s easy to get comfortable.

Overheard: “He’s trying to milk me over here!”

Out of Context: “I bet she could get it up!” “I’m gonna do *cups* because I’m bored.”

(that last one was misheard in a horrible way, I’m sure you can imagine.)

I21- Let’s Go

Quote of the week: “I’m still mad at you for making me lose my cherry.”

 (So out of context!)

Trying something new tonight… writing while at the bar. We’ll see how this goes. I’m on my second drink now.

This place really doesn’t have much in the way of bunnies (lately) but that is quite okay. My friend told me I’d end up with a goat… I find that completely apt and funny… so…..
