Today was a not the most productive of days, but that was somewhat anticipated. In fact, I didn't even go out for a drink until 11:00 P.M.
273) The Palm
This place was mentioned before when I wrote about Reggies, across the street. It is primarily a gay bar and they were having a live performance of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It wasn't bad considering they did it with a cast of just seven in a fairly cramped area with no real stage, just a small area in front of a screen where they usually show music videos. The music was all lip-synched, which was a good thing I would guess. Giving the nature of The Palm, this version was even campier than the film.
The whole place is fairly dark and the bar itself is in a relatively narrow raised area to the right of the larger seating area where the performance took place. The bar is dark wood with kind of intricate "woven" wood stools. The lower area has numerous tables and chairs in the same pattern of the bar-stools. There are also a row of stools back against the rise to the bar. I sat there for awhile but not only were the uncomfortable, I kept getting in the way of the performers and they ran about.
I had a gin and tonic at the bar and then another at a table while I watched Rocky and the crew. Quite entertaining.
My progress is hardly worth noting, but a bar is a bar. Just 727 left to go.
