went clubbing with mich and some guys 2 days ago.
wanted to go zouk but heard it was full house. went to music underground.
didn't like it. paid $10 cover charge and got a complimentary drink. had a vodka 7-up. dance a little. awkwardly. bad crowd. stayed till 12 plus. couldn't take it anymore. someone spilled his drink over my back. bloody hell. took off with mich, her bf and another friend.
decided to go check out rouge. didn't exactly know what were the charges etc. linger for a min or so. door bitch came and ask if she could help. said theres a charge for that day due to the eve of ph. if not its ladies night. age requirement? well, all pass. we hesitate. decided not to since mich and i was broke. started to walk away. bouncer called us to go in foc. lucky us.
stylish place. dance a little. not much crowd at that time. went downstairs and checked out alley/acid bar. cool. alley bar has an older crowd. caucasians. serious drinkers i think. acid bar was really nice. chill out area with comfy lounging area. the waiter. nas, he said his name was. chatted a little. average price for drinks - $15. a little steep. mich only had $10. i had $0. went back to rouge. after much discussion, decided to get drinks to stay longer. 1 for 1. $11 per housepour. couldn't find that $1. sigh. really thirsty by then. lingered for almost an hr like 2 idiots. doing nothing.
went back to "mu" to find mich's bf and gang. loathe that place. went hm after awhile. thank god.
