We considered ourselves The First Wives Club - Membership of two.
Got together a couple of times a month - Took turns picking the restaurant and paying the bill. We would discuss our kids, exes, and whether our support checks came in on time. Dreaming up curses to place on the cheating bums.

I chose a nice middle class restaurant and bar - Paid a semi hefty bill with tip.
When it was my friend's turn - She said we would be having an Italian dinner.
What she failed to tell me was - The place was a biker bar with only one dish on the menu - Cavatelli.

Seating arrangements were dirty banquet tables lined with plastic and folding chairs.
The food was in a roaster oven in the corner. The Cavatelli was surprisingly good - but the Italian bread was as hard as a rock and I can't even remember if we got salads. Oh well! What do you want for $4.99?
We had to buy our drinks at the bar - from a dirty, obese, semi toothless bartender. "Hello Ladies." In his sexiest voice as he scratched his big exposed belly through a hole in his dirty tee shirt. Not an appealing sight.

Two biker chicks with tattoos from head to toe were eyeballing us as they played a pinball machine in the corner.

And for this I got all gussied up in my powder blue, bejeweled pants suit!?!

Hey Bobby!
You cooking? I'll bring my big girl bib and I'm ready to eat...

Inquiring minds .....
want to know .. how big a tip did you leave?

Oh Pen !
Let's put it this way, I used to be a waitress so I always like to leave more than expected...Since it was so long ago (being at Bobby's place brought this Flashback to me - a totally opposite place often does that to me).

I'm with ya
I used to be a waitress too and usually leave a sizable tip .. giving thanks that I don't have to depend on those wages and that I got a decent [Union] job to ensure I have a healthy pension!

There but for the grace of God and applauding myself for making radical career choices in my quest for a sustainable job.

You inspired me to write my own RANT this morning on a totally different topic.

I avoid biker bars except for The Wild Duck Inn which no longer exists.

You need better friends, BabyDoll! Although I must say, down-and-dirty dive bars do serve their purpose quite well- You just have to be in the right (or wrong as the case may be) frame of mind. Cool story, despite the outcome.
