Yee Haw!

Last night, Omid and I joined our country music loving friends for a night out. Jeff had the great idea that we should all go to Duke's Bar & Grill and go 'dancin.'   Musically speaking, Omid and I are stuck in the 80's alternative genre: Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, Depeche Mode, etc. So last night was definitely new territory for us.

Fun fact: Omid & I only knew TWO songs the entire night. AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long & Shania Twain's Man I Feel Like A Woman. We were definitely fish out of water!

Since we had never been to a western bar before, Omid & I decided to head to Goodwill earlier in the week to find some western style shirts.

 We tried our darndest to find shirts like the ones above, but didn't even come close. Omid's shirt does have 'pearlized' buttons though.☺

Playing dress up in our new western wear.
I actually like my shirt & will most likely wear it to work.

The plan for the evening was to arrive at Duke's, eat & take advantage of the free dance lessons
 at 8 p.m. The place was practically empty when we arrived, but by the time 8 p.m. rolled around, it filled up quick.
 Line dancing lessons. It was harder than I thought. I had to keep counting 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 even when the music came on. I felt like I was on an episode of FAME (remember that show!?!).
Guess what! Three of us rode the mechanical bull!!
I wasn't one of them: w/ my bad back & all.☺

Jeff & Ward - Thanks for organizing a fun night, Jeff!!

Yes, you read her shirt correctly. Rub for Luck.
Once 11 p.m. rolled around, the youngins' arrived & the place became rowdy & raunchy.
I was shocked at some of the stuff I saw. Wow. We finally left the bar @ 1:15 a.m.! Way past my bedtime.

We did have a great time & it would be fun to do it again; as long as we leave by 11 p.m.!☺
