When some people travel, they go to the ends of the earth, but sometimes going across town to a dive bar is 1) all you have time for and 2) all you need to have some fun! On Friday, September 25th, 2009, Craig and I decided to venture to one of our local dive bars located right here in Orlando, Florida. I picked him up from work and we drove straight to Wally's Mills Avenue Liquors, I mean, after all, - where else would you go on Friday Night Date Night?
I've been to Wally's a few times in the past, usually very late at night after some concert, show, movie or late dinner. While we were there Friday, I was telling Craig about the story of how one of my friends, who will remain nameless, showed everyone at the bar how she could put both her ankles behind her head - while still sitting on the bar stool...good times...
However, all the times I visited Wally's, there was one thing I never noticed... maybe it was the smokey atmosphere, maybe the dim lights, maybe the crowded single passage isle around the bar area was distracting, who knows - but, Craig was quick to spot it right off the bat. (go figure) So, what was it? Well, apparently there's wall paper on the walls and not just any wall paper, as we soon discovered. You can see it behind me in the second picture and then again behind Craig and I in the third. But, just to be on the safe side, in case you couldn't quite make out what it was, I took a picture of it...see photo 4. You think that was special order, or what?
Aside from coming out smelling like an ashtray...the crowd is always fun to watch and listening to the old drunk guys trying to pick up young chicks never gets old in my book.
