There weren't no chocolates, no pretty flowers

Last night my friends and I went to try out a new restaurant, Herbs & Rye. The food was fantastic. The overall feel was like a step back to the time of Prohibition. If you live in Las Vegas, or are in town for a visit, I'd highly recommend it. But since I'm not a food critic, that's not the real point of the post.

After dinner, my friends wanted to go sit at the bar for a drink (apparently this place makes amazing cocktails - I can't say for certain since I don't drink, but I can say that they looked like they'd be good). Everything was freshly made, and they had unique glasses for each individual drink. The owner and bartender take their spirits seriously. It was really cool to watch them work. But again, I digress.

There were a few attractive girls sitting by us, and the owner of the place asked one of them (the one I thought was the prettiest) if she had any plans for Valentine's Day.

"Well, let's see, I'm going to wake up and rub one out, drink a bottle of wine, then go to work drunk and see if I can get fired from my job."

The owner looked at me and said, "Did you hear what she just said?"

"Yeah, I heard." Then I smiled at her.

She smiled back at me and said, "Now don't be jealous."

"I have to admit, I am a little jealous. Sounds like it'll be better than my Valentine's Day."

ha. I love a cool restaurant. Their website is a little green at the moment, but I'll keep checking back.

If by some horrific accident you find yourself in OKC, be sure to check out this place:

when a chick is digging you she will a) try to appeal to the man in you by behaving or displaying herself as a sexual creature and b) let you know over and over that she is DEFINITELY single and of course c) portray her life as lacking without that certain got no game dude.

Manuel, me too. Me too.

Troll, that's terrible, but funny. Terribly funny?

Vivalacrap, kinda like girls do by rich-ness

Kym, I don't foresee visiting OKC in the near future, but I'll keep that in mind.

Chico, I know.

Anonymous, you're right about one thing: I have no game. But, in my defense, any vibes that girl was throwing out were directed at the owner/bartender, not me. I'm not THAT bad.

doubtful. i think she was using him as a medium to get to you. you have to see the opening before it closes silly.

your child loves this. he is going on and on about pimping you out. he has pretty good game so you might want to take him up on it.

Anon, I might need to take some notes from him. Then again, if he's trying to pimp me out, he has to realize that it can't be with 13 y.o. girls. I'd go to jail for that. Also, she wasn't into me. Trust me on this.

Just the fact that she was talking to you about being SINGLE on valentines day gave you something to play on. You should have talked a little longer and gotten her phone number.

your kid is a genius.

do you want to take the little one for (ever) a little while to use as a chick magnet.

Boxer, Anonymous is the ex-wife.

At least in this case.
