Last Friday night marked the latest Obscure Dubuque Pub Crawl. Our numbers were small, but our will was mighty and just like rockstars we found groupies. Part of the management staff from a local grocery store followed us to each pub like adoring fans. They even found us after we cleverly diverted them to the wrong pub.
In other words, they didn’t exactly take a hint.
Here are the places we stopped and the quotes we captured in time.
Denny’s Lux Club:
“Blue-collared men make me ooze pheremones”-CE
“Is that cheese for everyone?”-Me while eating a mouthful of cubed cheese off a tray at the bar.
“SMELL IT HARD”-MM remarking on the nice-smelling hand-soap in the bathroom.
“We’re going non-retarded, otherwise we’ll feel really bad about ourselves.”-ML
On the walk to the Dog House Lounge:
“THAT’S A FLAMINGO!”-CE
The Dog House Lounge (next to Donut Boy):
“I want something fried”-Me
“I”m getting something fried.”-Me getting up to order french-fries.
“This place reeks of doughnuts. I can’t focus”-CE
West Dubuque Tap (clearly where we were supposed to spend the majority of our time)
“IS THERE A K’NEX IN THAT WAGON?! HOW MANY RAFFLE TICKETS CAN I GET FOR $5.00?!”-MM
“Um, can I give you my number?”-Guy who followed us to West Dubuque Tap addressing me.
“You don’t have to call if you don’t want to. It’s totally up to you.”-Guy
