She was pretty funny. I got to set up a photo shoot with her. She was embarrassed that the lights and camera were pointed at her while there were people in the bar, but you could tell she was kinda lovin' it too.

Too bad.  Made one hell of a cocktail. All the good ones are gone.

Doesn't Les Bird's have a no swearing policy?

It's the bar "where ladies and gentlemen are served by ladies and gentlemen."
