St. Patrick's Day at Tom Bergin's

Fearless Leader Bobby got something together for the section just in time for St. Patrick's Day. As the holiday is well-known effectively for shutting down all Irish bars in town, we had to get going early. The venue, which was quite proper and not at all non conveniens, was Tom Bergin's, at 840 South Fairfax, just south of Wilshire. The early goers (Tall Girl, John O., Liz P., and Oshin) got there at the scheduled time of 3:30pm or thereabouts. Yours truly arrived around 4pm, and was compelled to wait in line for about 45 minutes. Fortunately, I was joined by Krystle and her gal pal, and not far behind us in line were James P., Blake, Ali, and Fearless Bobby himself. By the time their part of the line moved indoors, we were joined by Jose and Nausheen.

The floor of the pub was slick with beer and god knows what else. Poor Krystle got splash-ups against her exposed toes. Ew! Still, we all had a good time.

One highlight had to be at the bar when, in the telephone booth right across from the bar, a couple started getting hot and heavy. They had been making out for a while already when, turning away from the riveting conversation at the bar for a few moments, yours truly saw the couple and their faces were not at the same height. Her hand was definitely not where his hands were. I alerted fellow partygoers, and we gawked for a bit until a small blonde rapped on the glass door of the booth. Busted!
