Since the focus has shifted to explaining what WE'D be doing, I'll take a crack at it.

I'd be nowhere near the bar, with either a white russian or a guiness in my hand. (depending on the night) I know enough people well enough that you could find me with a small group talking about everything from cars to paintball to hunting. After a while, I'd have to wander off and look for people I know I could recognize, just to shoot the breeze for a bit. Choop, Enos, Snake, Whale, tallen to name just a few.

I'll talk to anyone really, as long as their conversation isn't too liberally sprinkled with 'dude' or 'bro' and I'm not required to high five them upon introduction.

By the end of the evening, I'd be one of the few relatively sober ones left, so while the majority of the gang is passing out, going home, or trying to get sporx to go home with them, you'll find me with the group in the back having 'one last drink' and having what we believe to be a serious conversation about damn near anything. That group would probably include some of the older guys, a few military men (they've got the best stories at that time of night) and a few others who, like me, weren't interested in drinking themselves into oblivion because the Canadians were picking up the tab.

ALTERNATIVELY: depending on the say I had at work, I'd spend a few hours talking and meeting people, then sitting down to drink enough guiness until I fall asleep and have to get kicked out in the morning.

Well,
I'd start off the night with a few shots of JD with a cheap beer back, either Coors light or Miller High Life.
Once I get the feeling I was looking for, I'd switch up to a nice German beer. (Hopefully somethings on tap.)
I would then pester Rambs about what its like being a lawyer.
Following that, I would try to talk to the older crowd, but would eventually get kicked out of that group for something stupid I said.
Then I would try my game on Sporx.
After getting shut down, I'd ingest more JD and try again.
Then, I would sit down with Gatyr and talk about rap, with me and with debating anyone would says rap sucks.

True dat.

Just came back from a night full of Patron.

Suddenly realized that I finally made the obligatory drunk post, and forgot to point it out.

Woot - one more box checked.

Alas, the world has changed.  When I started out, taking clients and recruits to strip clubs was standard procedure, and I have submitted many a reimbursement for "tips - $300", but no more.  Taking recruits to strip clubs could get you fired, and taking clients to strip clubs is frowned upon (unless it is a big client, of course, in which case it's all good).

So, the real question is this:

When I open my own restaurant, I'm going to also have a nice bar. I'll probably take two buildings side-by-side and make the dining room in one and the bar in the other. When that happens and I send out the invites for opening night. How many of you would make the trip? Chances are it will either be in Charlottesville, VA or Asheville, NC.

If it were Charlottesville, I would make the trip. That's not too far a trip for me.

I'm looking for a chance to get down to Fla. to see a friend and some family down there one of these years...this could be a good stopover.

This could also be a huge opportunity for a forum meet and greet.

Well, it won't be for a few more years, but the plan is to move from the DC metro area to a more affable town and open a nice bistro and a bar. So, I'll keep everyone abreast as the time gets closer.

Aren't there any places closer to sea level?
