Last night was a first for me. I saw my first Celtic pub band, a belly dancer, (didn’t actually see her belly ) a River dance maiden and Lego Man, all at one place. The highlight of my night was when Wylde Nept took the stage, they looked like this:
They even had cocoa nuts.
As we were sitting there about 2 hours past my bed time, a moderately drunk young woman comes over to our table and asks if we were college professors. (Iowa City is a college town, and I guess in her mind, we had to be teachers if we were at this place this time of the night.
I’ve talked about this before, but some of my favorite people to hang out with are your non churchy types- bikers, people covered with tattoos, you get the idea.
I think it has something to do with the type of people I work with. I’ve discovered, beneath their (sometimes) tough exterior most construction workers have a soft heart. I LOVE to get to know and discover the person behind the mask.
Speaking of masks, last night happened to be an early Halloween party, which explained some of the get ups we saw, but not all of them.
Melissa (the friend who invited us out on the town) mentioned we might see some belly dancing to the Irish pub music.
Some of you are probably thinking to yourself, now how does that work??? Well, it works better than you might think.
