Alice had mentioned that she was meeting up with a young lady that was in the LA area from somewhere up north. I was supposed to go if I didn't make the Las Vegas meetup to say goodbye to Will and Sal (both Las Vegas TravBuddies that are moving away) and party like there will be no tomorrow.
As you can already see....I did not make the meetup.
Late enough Saturday evening....around 9 or 9:30pm Alice gave me a ring. She stated that she did not meet up with the young lady. She seemed to be full of energy. We were talking and decided to meetup for a drink. We were speaking of going to Redondo Beach....but somewhere around the thinking, we decided to meet up in Long Beach.
We walked a few steps to the Auld Dublinger and entered after getting carded at the door.
The place was jammed packed. Hardly a space to move around. We waited a few moments at the bar. Ordered 2 Guiness (one for each) and stood around waiting for somewhere to sit/stand. A table opened up....we were definately lucky. Alice and I spoke for a bit, was a hard conversation as the band started playing at the same time we sat down. A very lively band on top of the massive lively crowd....makes for a really hard conversation.
The drink finished up for us around midnight and we left about 12:30am.
Thank you Alice for thinking to ask me out, for the conversation and for the friendship. We will have to do it again. Soon.
