This past Saturday I went out clubbing. This club I went to was supposed to be one of those 30 and up "Dress to Impress" clubs, but as I am about to tell yall it was not.
First, this club is in what some folks in Dallas would call the "hood". It is in a part of Dallas called Oak Cliff. Now granted Oak Cliff is not as bad as the media here makes out. I like Oak Cliff. Whenever I hang out, that is where I usually am. Besides I grew up in a place that was 10 times worse than Oak Cliff, so I feel right at home there.
Like I said this place was supposed to be a "dress to impress, dress code strictly enforced place". So I do what I do. I put on some ironed slacks, a matching button up,a nice brim and shoes that matched the brim. If I say so myself, I looked rather dashing. And the looks I was getting from the ladies confirmed it for me.
So why is it I felt overdressed when I arrived at the scene?
There were cats in there with Air force Ones, white tee's and jeans. There were females in there that looked like they had just woke up and were going out to check their mail-box.
At first I thought I was at the wrong place. I was told this was a "classy joint".
Well, you know I did not let that stop me from "socializing".
I went to the bar, got my mandatory Corona and started to walk around so I could check out my "competition".
I told yall this was supposed to be a "30 and up" place right?
I felt like I was the oldest cat in there.
Granted I am used to going to the "adult" spots and seeing younger(fine)females, but the dudes usually are checked at the gate if they do not fit the bill.
There were cats in there with corn rolls, wearing gang colors.
Well as you might have guessed, I bounced after I drained that Corona.
That was not my type of spot. I am a little too old for that. Maybe 10 years ago I might have given it a chance. But now I am at the point in my life that if I feel the need to have my heater in the small of my back, I don't need to be where I am at. Besides, if I feel threatened, I am going to add to the black men in prison for killing another black man category, and I have too much going on in my life right now to f%%k up like that.
So, I went to my usual spot down the street from where I was at.
All things considered it was a pretty decent night.
