However, upon looking around I realized something about this place: it was Catholic themed. The water dispenser said holy water on the outside of it (see picture below) and at the registers (if memory serves correctly) were "donation boxes" for tithes and offerings. The waitresses were dressed in Catholic school girl outfits and faux stained glass windows and cathedral type decor made up the inside. It just didn't sit well with me. I may not be Catholic but I consider them my Christian brothers and sisters and I assume the owners didn't create the bar to pay homage to the faith. My guess is that whoever created it thought it would be funny and doesn't respect religion, or they're an ex-catholic with some serious unresolved issues.
One good thing to come out of that experience (besides excellent conversation with my dear friend) was a drink called a Moscow Mule. When I was ordering a drink I asked for a mint julep (hey it's racing season!) but they didn't have the mint mix needed for it, which in my opinion is nonsense. Then I asked for a mojito which got me a "Are you really that stupid" look from the bartender. It was one of those instances where as soon as I asked the question I realized it was a stupid question. Mojitos also need whatever mint mixture they put in mint julep's so obviously that drink was out too. After asking him for a recommendation, he suggested the Moscow Mule which I can describe as spicy, yummy, and not at all sweet. I had two and they hit me all at once, around the time I was halfway done with the second beverage. We left shortly after so I had to down the rest of my second Moscow Mule.
So as I'm sitting in the passenger seat looking out my window, I hear a car behind us screech on their breaks, come into view and slam into the car on their right. I have no idea what this lady was doing or where she was driving as there were cars parked at a diagonal angle in the "lane" she was attempting to drive in. What made this accident so crazy was that the lady on the left slammed into the car on the right with such speed and force that she actually CAUGHT AIR! Because I was slightly intoxicated I couldn't tell you whose fault it was or what exactly happened. What I can tell you is that the lady who slammed into the car was PISSED. She got out of her car and looked like she was saying, "That was not my fault." I can also tell you she seemed aggressive and the other lady stayed in her car.
My money is on the lady who slammed into the car on the right. I think she was trying to speed up and pass the other car, was driving too fast, ran out of room and BAM! We didn't stick around because my testimony sure wouldn't have been any help in the state I was in, which I feel badly about because I did see the whole thing. But the crucial elements of what happened behind me were not seen and what I did see was a bit in slow motion because of my inhibited reflexes caused by the Moscow Mule. I can safely say the Moscow Mule is worth a try, but will not aid you in the event you are a witness to a car accident.
