Who sucked out the feeling? [Jan. 13th, 2001|03:25 am]

I went and saw Superdrag at Lucy's Retired Surfers Bar tonight. It was a very good show, but really fucking packed. Lucy's is very narrow.

Possibly one of the most interesting parts of the night was when the bartenders lit some bottles so that they looked like molatov cocktails. They then started breathing fire. Pretty soon they engulfed the ceiling in flames. Very neat.

Yay for Lucy's. It's one of the perks I found after turning 18.

Actually, I don't understand clubs that are 18+. They have to mark some people as underage, so why not just make it all ages? I'm old enough for the 18+ places now, but a lot of my friends aren't. It's a pain in the ass.

I think it's some crazy, wacked out laws that dictate the age rules. It depends on whether the bar serves food, what type of liquor license they have, etc, etc...

For instance, there was this Howard Johnson Motel in Alabama that had a club in it, oddly enough. It was called the High Note, and they regularly had local bands play. They also had a bar. Many of the shows were all ages, however.

One day, they have an inspection, and they get a citation for having all ages shows and alcohol. So the next night, they turn off the bar, and cover it up. They get inspected AGAIN, and get another citation. Seems that it doesn't matter if the bar is closed or not. Just the presence of it caused the problem.

So the NEXT night, they're forced to suddenly make the show 18 and up, or risk losing their license. It was madness, because lots of people had come to see the show who were under 18.

So the laws are fucked up and complicated. That's all I'm trying to say with this incredibly unwieldy post.

By the way, The High Note made the best of a bad situation, and opened up the back doors so that every underage person who had come to see Pain could stand outside and still watch the show. Actually this is where I first REALLY met my friends Colleen and Tami.

Laws are meant to be broken! WOOOO---EEEEEEEE!!!!

I think 18 and up shows also have to do with the hook up factor. Let's say there is alcohol and drunk people trying o hook up. Legally these people would be over 21 *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* but at least they woul be over 18. What is some 21, 22 year old hooked up with and got caught with a 16 year old? Quite possibly in today's America you could sue the pants off the bar. So to prevent all this we make a law that says this is illegal except in a handful of states like Louisiana and Kentucky. Legal adult and legal adult content, consent, decisions etc. That's what it's all about.
And I had absolutely no idea you were a retired surfer, Roy! Tubular!
