*After the game we went to The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium.
*Where they have over 200 beers on tap.
*These plates represent a customer who's drank 200+ beers @ Flying Saucer.
*The "champ" has 19 plates...
Almost 4000 beers.
*During dinner Mike bought and smoked a cigar.
*And our waitress claimed she's stronger than 95% of men.
*After dinner it was straight to Beale Street.
*Apparently these beers are available at multiple bars for a couple bucks...
Our group elected to purchase $7 RedStripes and
$9.50 black label rum and cokes.
*At 152 we relaxed with the house band...
Who featured a very unique keyboard player that resembled John Lennon, and had fantastically odd body language.
*We moved down Beale Street
and had to make a decision.
*Silky O'Sullivans or Rum Boogie Cafe..?
After Dustin and Steve haggle our cover from $40 to $20.
(Dustin offers to sell Holland, MI bound bouncer his house for cheap cover in return.)
*The soulful sounds of the Rum Boogie house band:
"When A Man Loves A Woman"
*When inside we meet a bachelorette party.
*Mike continues his smoking for the evening by puffing a Virginia Slim with one of the ladies.
*We were also grenade whistled.
*One-upped by a guy who claimed he kills deer with a crowbar.
*And given a Hallmark size business card by singer Amanda Pollard.
*Then we rocked out to "Proud Mary"...
And met 'Cougar Linda' on the dance-floor.
*Matt is rocking my flat billed New Era LA Dodger cap like a champ.
*Steve is walking away from girls that are attempting to coax men into buying them drinks.
*We're standing next to a 330 lbs. bodyguard wearing a shirt that says 'BAMF'.
*Mike is dressed in a 'ITALIA' soccer zip-up and engaged in conversation with a dietician about metabolism...
*And we are plotting on buying Mike a body shot.
*Mike is objectified by the bartender:
*First - He's given a shot of tequila and has the lime juice chaser 'bird fed' into his mouth.
*Next - He's bent over the bar and whipped with the metal buckle of a leather belt.
*And finally he has male genitalia drawn on his back with permanent marker.
*We were told for $20 is would be worth it...
And it was!
*We capped off Beale Street by returning to Club 152.
*Where we paid a $10 cover and were denied access to the VIP floor.
*Steve and Matt used their people skills to hustle us wristbands.
*We claimed to be an extension of the bachelorette party...
And it worked!
*Dressed in zip-ups, hoodies and ripped dress shirts we made our way into the VIP.
*We were surrounded by mirrors and ambiance.
*Matt and Brett were given a lesson in southern hospitality.
*Steve met a girl from Hope College...
And did some break dancing as we left.
*We returned home and ate 100 pizza rolls that we had to make in the oven because the newlyweds Matt & Deb do not have a microwave...?
*And then on the way home we saw this...
