Drink Alone in a Bar One Night


October 29th.  A man, a bar, and alcohol.

If you’ve never experienced drinking alone in a bar, you should really consider it.  When I was younger, I saw a bunch of movies (which I’m sure you all did as well) that had people drinking alone at the bar.  I thought it was so cool.  Alcohol, smoke, people, bartenders, etc. etc. All of it was awesome.  I needed to do this. I had to do this.

So a guy walks into a bar (sounds like a corny joke)… that guy being me.  I walk in and the bartender immediately says hi to me.  Then she says what I have always dreamed a bartender would say to me, “Whatchu drinking?”  I was like…”Ummm I’m not sure.”  So I asked her to make me a drink.  I didn’t care what it was I just wanted to drink!  I know I sounded like an alcoholic at this point but I didn’t care.  I was all in.

My first drink was vodka, soda with a splash of blueberry.  Meh.  Not that good, but drinkable. If you know me, then you know my love for fruity drinks.  The second drink I had was a pomegranate-orange martini (pictured above.) That, my friends, was amazing.

During my time at the bar I spoke to several people.  There were definitely “regulars” at the bar. Everyone was nice, polite and down to earth.   All of this added to the experience.  I’m very happy I did this.

I can definitely see myself doing this again.  Goal #12 Completed!
