An unusual "party" at a bar during the daytime Saturday
I was attending the Filmfest DC at the NYU Auditorium on L Street in Washington DC, and between films (at about 7 PM) I noticed (with the help of Droid) that I was two blocks and one alley away from the Green Lantern off of 14th St.
I walked over there, had trouble getting noticed downstairs by the bartender who was overwhelmed by a number of running tabs, and went upstairs instead and witnessed the “Spanking Party”. I had never seen anything like this. I was invited to “take a number” but simply had a beer. The bartender knew the Nationals baseball team pretty well and that Bryce Harper’s monster home run had just won a game for the Nats. The Orioles were beating the Dodgers (NL) twice. The Red Sox were winning their emotionally important game. A conversation about MLB with “spanking” (just one person) going on in a leather saddle on a stage, with some video, was odd indeed.
They’re not much too it, a little redness. It’s hardly an existential fantasy. I understand that this event happens there the third Saturday every month.
Picture: Yes, Chicago comes to the Green Lantern.
