A Rocky Day At The Palm

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.

At what point does bar fatigue set in. 400 or 500 to go? I must admit I like a drinkie as much as the next man.....but I'm not sure I'd be up for the long haul.

There are days when I wake up and don't really feel like going to any bars. Usually by noon that feeling has past. You will notice that I do sometimes take a day or two off and somedays, like this one, I just go to one bar. When I am not in Mexico I very seldom have a drink that doesn't count towards my thousand bars. Here, well, it is Mexico... sunset at the pool, beers on the beach.
