When it comes to alcoholic beverages, I’m a purist. So I was thrilled last night that Arirang had unfiltered sake, which you consume cold — not hot. In fact, ever since I started drinking cold sake, I could never go back to hot sake, it’s just so lame in comparison.
Nothing beats a Saturday night out with my love. We were obviously the couple having the most fun at the bar. After a couple rounds, we noticed that a guy sitting across from us looked like Bobby Long from “Zack & Miri Make a Porno.”
I’m like, “Oh my God, he does!” and laughed hysterically, burying my head into my husband’s chest to buffer my laughter.
We love “Zack & Miri” so much we can quote it word for word, pretty much, and with gay porn star “Bobby Long” sitting across from us, we couldn’t help being inspired to re-enact a few lines from this scene:
“That’s Bobby’s boyfriend.”
“Are you f*cking with me?”
“No, they’re f*cking each other.”
And it was so cool having a bartender that enjoyed that we were enjoying ourselves. As we left he was inviting himself to our Father’s Day barbecue and telling us to come back again real soon.
Then we sung every song from Queen’s “A Day at the Races” (IN ORDER) except the first and last for whatever reason — although singing “Teo Torriatte” back at the Japanese cocktail lounge would have been a GREAT IDEA, especially since we had such a cool bartender. But, on second though, I think “Zack & Miri” quotes were enough for the bar to handle. You just can’t give it all away, right?
If I could just waltz through life on a moonstone coconut lemongrass sake high, the world would be a better place to live!
