It Was Saturday Night... She Walked Into The Shadows... and Paused... ๐Ÿ˜ถ

She walked down the stairs and strutted through the door, into the dimly lit bar. A brisk gust of wind and a stylish black dress (framing long slim legs), announced her arrival. She stood there... with a quizzical pout. Seven pairs of eyes leaned towards her.

It was one of those quiet clubs. You know the type ; varnished oak wood everywhere, a long marble bar, and small candle lit tables. A cluster of hopeful, well dressed men, commiserated alone... in the dar They rarely got lucky and never succeeded, with a new face. Repetition and bad habits and 'nowhere else go' - defined their purpose. She walked amongst their grey shadows and paused...

Was she lost? Or looking for someone? The men held themselves back yet each... wanted lunge. She cozied up the edge of the bar and asked a question. "Is this place called 'Winnie's'? We're supposed meet here."

The bartender put down the glass he was wiping and leaned over her ; "No. 'Winnie's' is next door. But we have a 'happy hour'. Go meet your friend and come back here. Ya like jazz? We got a trio playing later."

She looked at him and smiled. "Thanks. I may just do that."

With a flip of her head and a cascading flourish of her jet black hair, she pushed herself away and walked back out... from where she came.

Seven pairs of eyes, slowly dipped into their drinks and sipped the night... a little deeper into oblivion . There was still hope. The regulars hadn't yet shown up.

Kinda reminds you of this place, in some ways - doesn't it ? Except... everyone, has a drink in their hands.

It would remind of more of this place if the new face had said, "Am, looking for a bar, Winnie's by name. Am very generous to meet you. Am a nurse with the International Red Cross currently stationed in Uganda with my grandmother. Am looking for a kind, generous man to buy drinks for me."

The place 'Winnie' s' is real. It's four floors of mayhem with a different DJ on each one. Mostly a younger crowd.
If I was her and young ? I think I might stay at Winnie's. Then again, it depends on what type of mood she might have been in and who she was with. Good questions... lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ We'll never know... will we?
True... there are all types of people HERE.
Pouring rain โ˜” here today. Looks like a great opportunity to stay in doors and watch football ๐Ÿˆ... ๐Ÿ˜Š
So.. whatcha gonna do now? ๐Ÿค”

It kind of reminds me of one of the plot lines in the latest season of the series Shameless. A couple of the characters own a bar, and are upset when a local newspaper columnist rates their bar the #1 โ€œrapiestโ€ bar. They try to reform the various desperate men who hang out in their bar to make it more โ€œfriendlyโ€ to people with vaginas....

You know, I'm sorry to say - I've never seen that show. Reading about it now, makes me feel as if I'm missing a good show.
Am I? ๐Ÿค”
Then again.... there's just too much to do, no?

I haven't seen Cheers in years. Are there repeats of that show somewhere. lol ๐Ÿ˜‚
So... She walks in and then what? ๐Ÿค”
Unless she brings all her friends. Ya gotta like jazz trios. I do - you? The vibe in that place probably warms up as the place fills.
We'd be fine. ๐Ÿ˜Š

If she had on THAT dress she wouldnt have had time to walk out with the crew that hangs here LOL Good TAle
And yes, I know right where there's a cool bar in the basement of The Regency [ it is an old armory in Portland that they saved] Hotel. One night I was in there meeting a friend. When he came back to the table he said, if you decide to go out with that man over there, you should know he didnt wash his hands in the men's room. I almost lost a good mouthful of Oban
Nice tale with a lot of places for imagination

It takes a strong, confident woman, to walk alone into an unfamiliar, dimly bar. The flip of her hair and the swing of her hips, proves she knew exactly what she was doing. I don't think she walked in there by mistake. She wanted to make an impression and amused herself while doing so.

'... she wouldn't have had time...'? omg lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ Sounds like some clubs I know here. I guess, people don't change, do they? Only club names and cities.
Sounds like 'handy wipes' mighta helped. lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
Dark bars are fun, mysterious and naughty ... if you're with the right partner, aren't they?
Yes! You can! lol ๐Ÿ˜‚
