Cross Country Road Trip 7/31/92
Today we went over to Haight Ashbury and hung out there for most of the afternoon/ We are in hippee mecca. These people are beyond Deadheads although there is that sort of paraphenalia everywhere. Head shops selling the latest in waterbong technology. Every third person that walks by you says under his (her) breath: "Kind Bud", "Mushrooms", "Doses", "Hash" or any combination thereof. Most of the homeless people here are more my age, or slightly older. People would draw in chalk on the sidewalk for money, or play guitar, sell drugs. A girl walked up to us asking for a quarter "Can I please have a quarter for some coffee? I'm freezing" The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Fransico. It is really cold here. I love it. It is a wonderful reprieve from the opressive heat of the desert. So far this this is my favorite town of the trip. We went into a little bar called Night Break and shot pool, we lost miserably to a really hyper musclehead. We went back to Keiths and had dinner & decided to drag him out. We were going to a bar he had heard about called the Elbo Room. On the way we saw fliming for a movie. In the scene someone ran out of a store called La Hacienda carrying a watermelon. I don't get it either. We went to the bar (walked) and proceeded to get drunk. They were playing dance music really loud, but they had a pool table. Ed won the table & three Joe College charachters asked if they could play 3 on 2. We said sure. We beat them twice then lost. At this point a really hot girl & her foreign boyfriend came in. She played incredibly, he was not so hot. She crushed Joe College (also known as the WHITE GUYS; "Hi we're the white guys, and I have an Amstel?" )[Editors note -- that last line is spoken in your best "Banana in the tailpipe" voice]. Then they beat her. We played again and even had a little cheering section, the White guys were annoying everybody & (we) won. The Hot Girl, Tamara, even complimented us on our playing. I blushed. We bought Keith A screaming Nazi (1/2 Rumple Minze, 1/2 Jaegermeister, Layred and Frozen -- remember?) So by the end of the night he was pie eyed & plastered so we went home. He puked.
