Last night after work I went and stopped by Nocturnal again, met the owner, Neil, he was really cool. He loved the theme of our group, and said he wanted to join!
In the spirit of his new membership, he did give us the $2.00 shot deal I was heading there to beg for! along with other great drink specials to be passed on when you all arrive tonight.
He also said we could bump up the RSVP limit a little to 160! So invite your friends and squeeze into Nocturnal with me for our drinking social and later the dancing up a storm with DJ Robin.
I also ran into my favorite bartender Charlie; she's a cool cat and she was added on to work tonight thanks to our high RSVP response, so say hi to her and share a shot with her :-)
I'll probably stop by and pick up a platter or two at Cosco and be at the bar by 5:45PM, feel free to bring food into the bar if you like. :-)
end Kenway update, see you TONIGHT!
I stopped by to check the Nocturnal Bar out the other day, it is easy to find, on the southeast corner of the street and there is a lot of street parking to be utilized.
FYI - This is a dive bar.
Between 6pm and 8pm it will probably only be DWSers in the joint and tonight I will try to get us even better deals than we already had, like $2.00 shots and other deals. I'll likely also order in Pizza or something similar :-)
Also, just for your reference, beers and drinks are typically $4-$5 each w/ shots about $3.00 - not too bad.
end of Kenway update - see you Wednesday night :-)
Its time again for another fun mixer, smaller this time as we (Randy, Chris and I) plan for the Big Halloween Party, but good all the same.
So, my friend and Venice Beach neighbor Robin, the cool cat she is (dancer, desinger, model, DJ, videographer and friendly as can be), emailed me earlier that she and her girlfriend started DJing at The Nocturnal Bar on Wednesdays and she'd love to have us come by; mix, mingle then later dance.
By coincedence, I met a bartender from this same bar that had sold me on the place a couple of weeks ago, and when Robin contacted me it took only a second to confirm.
After a couple of phone calls, the owner, Neil, said he would exclusively give DWSers, $5.00 Saki-Bomb drinks and $3.00 Sake Shots all night (with your DWS wristband) - just awesome!
Here's my plan if you'd like to join me:
I will be arriving to the bar about 6:00PM, and drinking :-)
I've discussed with Robin coming in with her DJ equipment and her fellow DJ D'Alicia that they could start spinning about 8, which gives people time to get reaquanted or acquanted.
So, short and sweet today since Howard and I are very busy this month preparing for the Disneyland Marathon on the 31st.
I look forward to meeting some newbies and the regulars and dancing late into the night next Wednesday.
As always, feel free to contact me via cell phone if you have questions, comments or are just lost, I am good with directions -[masked]
PS - Parking is easy in that area. Just read the signs carefully and don't park in the red.
PSS - Nocturnal does not serve food, but it can be brought in if you'd like to - there is a Jack in the Box next-door for you fast food'ers.
