My Vegas Buddy

This blog post is dedicated to my ever so favorite Vegas girl, Johanna. Back in the day, she was my clubbing partner. Everytime, a nice song came on, we were always so consistent with our fabulous stripper like dance moves along with the infamous hair toss! Very frequently, she comes back to the Bay to kick it with her friends. That's friendship loyalty right there! She was back this weekend due to random reasons. Gotta love it! After an exhausting day of softball, I found the energy to go out this past Saturday. I picked up Joh and her close friend Maridez and headed out to the Cellar in San Francisco. The vibe was cool. We randomly bumped into her L.A. friend, Jeff. So funny, we all remembered that he was the dude that slept on my living floor years ago! It was during our Ibiza days. Good times! I didn't drink that night because I knew I had to get up early for another softball game the morning after. I still had fun. I lost Joh during the night. Luckily some random dude noticed the abandoned and lonely lface and offered to help. I was standing next to him near the bar on my tippy toes browsing through all the heads of the crowd. He then says, "You looking for your friend?". I said, "How do you know?". "I was checking you out...she's over there towards the dance floor." "Yeah, OK...", I said sarcastically. I continued to scope through the crowd for the second time ignoring his presence. "Seriously, she's over there. She's wearing black, right?", he went on. "Here - let's make a bet. If I'm wrong, I'll buy you a drink. If you're right, you buy me a drink!" It took a minute for the wager to absorb in my brain. I was going to take up on it but then the part when he said that I had to buy him a drink registered. K - this dude is telling the truth. There is no way I'm going to lose and end up buying him a drink. I just smiled politely and said, "No it's OK. Thanks for helping though." I walked away and headed over to the very end of the bar and there she was! Amazing! He was right, after all. I tried to find him later on the night to say thank you, but he was no where in sight. Oh well. A few more friends joined us that night. It was very kick it. The way I like it. We also had some good entertainment that I haven't seen in a while - Bar Brawl! It was between a drunken dude and a Polynesian bouncer. Can I say crazy? Just imagine the crowd swaying from one side of the room to another to avoid getting hit! The night ended early (at 1:30am). It was fun. On the way to dropping off Maridez, she gave Joh and I a quick tour of the Mission. Life on the Mission looks pretty exciting. One day, I'd like to make the Mission district one of the spots to hit up during the day AND night. One of these days... Thanks Joh for making my life interesting! You've been such a good friend through the years. We always know how to have a great time. See you on g-chat!
