twenty + one.

Last night i went on an adventure to the Plaza in Kansas City in honor of my cousin/best friend Julie’s twenty-first birthday!! & upon arriving, although a good 24min. late due to some unexpected direction glitches…
i sat down next to Julie at a huge table of all her friends. BUT then the dumbest thing happened.
The waiter approaches me & asks for my id. I explain to him that i am not, in fact, twenty-one, just shy by a year… but i was not going to drink. He then explains that i have to sit at a different table because they were serving alcohol at Julie’s table. {Don’t get me wrong–i understand they must do what the have to do…} BUT, it was 5pm. in a BAR & GRILL. Julie asked to speak with the manager & told him that she was never told of such a policy when having made the reservations… after the manager explained his {illogical} point, of “well some people will say they won’t then they end up drinking from others…” I didn’t mind sitting at the table 2 feet away from the main one, because we were in a private section; Plus Julie’s sister, my good friend Jenny, and her hubby sat with me. I was not in the least bit mad about it, {although a bit offended that they admitted to not “trusting their customers”} i understand rules are rules but there one thing that made me completely befuddled:
— When the waiter did bring the tray of alcohol he placed it at my seat, directly in front of me, {like where you put your plate!!}… & proceeded to take about 5 minutes to pass it out– i gestured to Julie that i could have slammed down at least four of those shots in the minutes which he was diddling around…. fools.
Julie visited our table occasionally… i mean it was only 2 feet away…. : )
it was fun nevertheless–they can never take our fun away dammit.

{Happy Birthday Julie!}

{i really want to drop the name of the restaurant but is that taboo blog-o-sphere?}
