My Mom was in town for a bit and Trevor and I took the opportunity to have a date. An actual date!
I miss the Opus Lounge in Madison something fierce. It was our favorite place to go for frou-frou drinks.
As happenstance would have it, I spotted a cocktail bar in downtown Mayaguez the very day of our date. Let’s go.
Isola. Downtown Mayaguez. 19 guys inside and I doubled the female count just by walking in. I told the bartender to make me something fruity (he spoke English). He gave me their version of Sex on the Beach = Isola Sex. ok. ‘Twas yummy. We nabbed some dominoes on the bar and took the best seat in the house.
A guy informed us that a domino tournament would be starting soon and the prize was a bottle of rum! Considering we didn’t even know the real rules of the game, we just nodded, smiled and said gracias.
The male/female count settled at 25 to 4 as the night eased on. I wanted to have another Isola Sex but nobody wanted to see a gringa stumble out (“Sure they do” said Trevor. huh.)
We decided chicks don’t come here because they guys were all about the, “dude we could win a bottle of rum!” domino tournament.
$30 for 4 drinks and 3 little appetizers. We’ll be back. When’s Mom’s next visit?
