Tuesday night was more interesting!!! The roommate and I went to “Harry Buffalo,” this bar down the road that has bison burgers. Pretty good. (Though it was funny when he pointed at the stuffed buffalo head on the wall and said I was making him angry for eating one of his friends.)
Today, I had my first Bacardi and Coke . Then, I learned what a Buttery Nipple was… those were good!
We left there, and met up with a few of our friends, and went to Zocalo’s, a tequila bar… I kind of wussed out with the tequila though… I did get some Jack Daniel though, was good stuff.
But we weren’t wasted enough yet! So we went to a third place after that one closed, where I had some more Jack and tried to play pool. Somehow after like 5 shots I sank the eight ball… then my roommate’s alcohol really kicked in and he started antagonizing the folks playing the pool table after us.

This week, I’m coming to you from Cleveland, Ohio, as I’m working out of the office my company has located here. Needless to say, between the rough patch in my life recently and then this trip, not much writing has occurred. But, I decided to keep myself occupied, I need to write more, and if not on the story, then to start making this a part personal blog as well.
We flew into the Pittsburgh airport, and left there at 6pm. Got the rental car, and we drove all the way to Cleveland. Took about two hours. We were starving at that point, so we decided to go out into the city.
We started at the House of Blues. Really nice place on 4th Street. Now, we each get $40 a day for food, so we were all deciding what we wanted. Everyone got like a $10 entree, mostly so they could drink . I don’t drink that much, so I went for the $25 steak. The others made fun of me a bit, but that was okay. One guy had like 3 long islands, another was drinking Rum and Coke, and another coworker got the Jack and Coke. I thought I was being funny asking for a Coke and Coke, but no one seemed to think it was so funny.
After too long, they were closing, and said we had to go somewhere else to drink (coincidentally right down the street, at the Blinking Lizard). So we went there, and I watched some of the Colts game (they lost!), while everyone else had some more to drink… all the same stuff.
Then they said THEY were closing, and said we had to go somewhere else to drink (coincidentally right down the street, at Nick’s Sports Bar). So we went there. At this point, everyone was pretty toasty, and started making fun of me for not drinking.
Naturally, I give in to peer pressure!
I had a Long Island, mostly because I don’t really know any drink names, and it sounded the lightest out of what they were drinking. Then one of my coworkers went and ordered another one… so I had to drink that one.
Wooh, for someone that doesn’t drink, I got pretty toasty, my head hurt the next day… and I only had 2 long islands… we’re gonna practice this week drinking
That was Sunday.
Monday, I did not do a whole lot… was still feeling kind of tired from Sunday, lol. Another friend from work came over and she cooked chocolate chip pancakes for me . Honestly, i’ve never eaten chocolate chip pancakes on my own, and that was awesome, they were oozing chocolate. Put the leftovers in the freezer for later. Yum!
Then, I practically passed out and slept most of the night. I woke up so we could order pizza, and that was it.
Today, we’re waiting to see if the girl who made the pancakes calls me back , and if not, me and and the coworker who is my roommate out here are gonna head out.
