From the Indy Hall staff room this morning.
alex [10:56 AM] So, last night I was at this TINY tiny tiny bar in west philly.
alex [10:56 AM] like, literally the size of my living room because it is a living room in a house that was turned into a restaurant.
alex [10:57 AM] first i’m talking to the bartender who’s helping me pick a beer
alex [10:57 AM] turns around to open it for me at the bar, and the guy sitting to my right had picked the same beer
alex [10:57 AM] we say hi - he notices my Indy Hall jacket
alex [10:57 AM] “Is that an Indy Hall jacket?” he asks?
alex [10:57 AM] I said “yup!"
alex [10:57 AM] “so, does that mean you’re a member there?"
alex [10:58 AM] Yep, I actually started it too.
alex [10:58 AM] “WHAT!” double take
alex [10:58 AM] so, you’ve heard of it
alex [10:59 AM] “yeah, I moved to Philly about a month ago and have been meaning to check it out. I literally had just booked a tour for tomorrow.”
alex [10:59 AM] and that’s how I met Ronan
alex [10:59 AM] who’s coming in for a tour today at 3pm
But wait, there’s more.
alex [11:00 AM] later, standing in a corner talking to patterson and her friend
alex [11:00 AM] two girls casually work their way into our conversation
alex [11:00 AM] one girl, “is that an Indy Hall jacket?” she asks?
alex [11:00 AM] this is in the same, tiny, living room sized bar at 45th and locust.
alex [11:00 AM] i said yes, naturally
alex [11:01 AM] “oh, cuz….I went on a date with a guy last year. and he took me there. it was really, really awesome."
