Hipster Dog Mom in The Making

People get married, have children and stuff and the next thing you know your fridge is full of their family’s holiday post cards. I never thought I’d be one of those people. I’m not one of those people. Then there are people that don’t have children or spouses, but have pets as their companions instead. They dress them up in weird outfits, give them fancy haircuts, hire dog sitters for […]

Mondays Are For Day Drinking & AA Meetings

For some, Mondays are the dreaded days of the week during which people are forced to battle the post weekend bender hangovers and return to their boring routines; for others a Monday is that one glorious extra day of freedom before getting back to the grind. I’m happy to say that I’m in the latter category. Not only do I not treat said day of the week as a total […]

It Rarely Rains In LA, But When It Rains It Pours

So let me tell you about this crazy day of mine. Oddly enough it started with me getting soaked by the poorly installed sprinklers in my front yard. Normally I wouldn’t mind some wet action on a hot summer day, especially keeping in mind that I was wearing a white shirt, but in this particular case I was on my way to court, running late mind you, so I was […]

Just a Healthy Rant About Your Average A-hole

It’s no secret that working in the restaurant biz, you’re bound to have the displeasure of dealing with the lowest of the low; the scum of the earth if you will. If there was a contest for having met a crap load of crap when it comes to humanity, I’d win. Well, that’s a little ambitious but I’d definitely be in the running. If it’s not those to whom the […]

Self Training While Training Your Puppy

There’s a saying. There’s no such thing as a stupid dog; only a stupid owner. I can’t say I agree with that sentiment wholeheartedly… but I’m pretty much on board with a solid 9 out of 10 if we’re grading statements of truth on a scale. Reason being, I actually did have a dog once when I was little; I swear he was the dumbest thing alive. You couldn’t teach […]

The story about how I popped my Tinder Cherry

I must be honest here… As shocking and unexpected as this may seem, I hate all social media. I hate how it lures you in and sucks you dry. I hate how it forces you to communicate with strangers, especially when they choose to be all creative and say things like ‘hey’ or better yet ‘wyd’. I hate that there are a million and three websites solely dedicated to helping […]

CAN I BUM A DRINK?

People are walking around with such gigantic balls nowadays; bringing them everywhere they go, showing them off like they’re something to be proud of. Let me tell you, it takes a lot of balls to be able to walk out on a check. As a bartender, I’ve had that happen a few times. It gets busy, you forget to take a credit card at the beginning, or you decide that […]

Mother’s Day – The Mother of All Sh*t Shows

It is almost inevitable for all the freak shows to stay home on mother’s day. They somehow happen to evade father’s day and even Valentine’s day but come mother’s day they all come crawling out of their dark chambers and into the world where humans are just trying to get by and live a semi-normal life. These are the people that make you question humanity; these are the people that […]

Russian Snow Angels in Los Angeles

Living in Los Angeles has been an endless stream of questions like “So where do you like it better, here or Russia?” and “Don’t you miss the snow?” Truth be told, while I like snow and I think it’s beautiful, I don’t want it around me for longer than a span of 48 hours. That’s precisely why living in LA is so great. If you wanna take your winter parka […]

Pizza & Beer – My Kind of Party.

I’m a firm believer in the fact that there’s no such thing as a bad beer, unless the beer is actually bad as in spoiled. Otherwise, all beer is good in its form; it just needs to be paired properly to an occasion and mood. Beer like Corona for example is considered “bad” because the bottle is made out of glass that’s much lighter than say that of Dos Equis […]
