Sweet play list, it kept me going.
I ventured into Buffalo last night. The internets told me there was a music festival at this bar. So I hop into Obi-Wan (that's the Honda) and head down town. I end up at the bar, and I find out it's a biker bar- I'm not a biker. I go inside, and lo and behold, no music festival.
I'm still not a biker.
I end up at an Irish pub and make nice with the owner.
To the Detroit fan at the bar- I love talking sports, but you were very drunk. Next time we talk sports, please don't touch me.
To the random woman who spoke to me: You totally gave me great fodder; your lines were priceless:
"Wait, so how tall are you?"
"I know this is going to sound like a bad pick up line, but do you come here often?"
Her: "So if you want to do something on june 7th..."
Me: "Well, I hope to have a job by then."
Her: "Oh, don't worry, I don't mean to be mean, but you won't"
