The Gin Mill Life in Quotes

If you don’t know, I’m a barfly at The Gin Mill. It’s a fantastic bar and I have my friend Tim to thank. I remember the days where it would be just me and him, sitting at the corner, drinking shot for shot, with just Holly and Chris.  Now, I still sit in the corner when it’s open, I still do shots, but it’s no longer just the four of us but a plethora of people…some I know…some I don’t.  I have made friends there, some just bar friends and drinking friends, some outside of the bar friends, but whenever we are at The Gin Mill, we are all just friends.  The “usual suspects” are always friendly and ready to welcome a stranger…sometimes, if you’re sitting near the regular crew, you might get lucky and get a shot/drink and one is always in for a good story or round of laughter.

This won’t make a lick of sense to anyone who doesn’t know The Gin Mill, but for several weekends, we wrote down things that made us erupt into laughter.  Some are stupid, some are “you had to be there,” and some are down right funny. (My favorites are in bold)
