Last weekend I decided it would be fun to have a guys night out. My best friend said hey let's go watch the Texans game and be home early. So like a good friend I said yes and of course I'm never thinking about my wallet or the next day.
The night started around 6 PM. My friend picked me up and first thought that came to my mind was designated driver! I can drink (bad idea) all I want tonight. We started the night out at the Houston Texans grill at City Center in Houston. As you can see the place was already crowded when we got there:
We finally got in and after 3 or 4 beers it was time to eat! I decided on 20 hot wings in 2 different flavor combinations:
I think I had 5 large beers here? I can't really remember but when I got my bill the total was $55 dollars! I'm having a good time, life is good but of course when you hang out with guys the night doesn't end there. We decided to head over to another place at City Center called Yard House, here I had another 6 glasses of beer and the total at this place was $46 dollars!
We finally decided to head out but the night is young! who goes home at midnight these days? so we decided to head over to the local pool hall, we ended up at Slick Willie's and stayed there way past 2 AM:
From this point on I don't remember much. I know we stayed late because the lights came on and the waitress was waiting for us to leave. By now I'm probably on beer 16 or 17 and I don't even remember signing anything but next day I found a receipt in my pocket for $52!!
The night still didn't end there. We headed back to my friends house and continued drinking until 4 AM. I don't even remember getting home but I do remember my wife handing me a baby at 7 AM in the guest bedroom with my wallet, cell phone and clothes all over the room. I was miserable, I spent over $150 dollars (Citi) and felt horrible the next day.
This post is more for me to learn from my stupidity and for you to get a glimpse in to my immaturity. I'm 33, I'm a father but I feel like I still have some growing up to do. Thank god I didn't end up in jail or dead, I can't be doing this kind of stuff anymore.
