So a couple of weeks ago we invited Caleb & Gary in to drink with us. They are the owners of Corkbar in Downtown LA.
Sooooo, these two fellas met whilst working the daily grind at an ad agency. They decided, without a drop of experience betwixt the two of 'em, to open up Corkbar. Hmm, sounds like a good idea.
We got schooled on wine. Knowing very little about that shit, I felt like the mildly retarded kid who was allowed to sit in your History class. I tried to pretend to know what was going on, but my vacant stare gave me away. (That, and the asymmetry of my gigantic domepiece.)
Also, we discussed Caleb's borderline obsession with the purple stuff, Gary's witnessing of stripper-pole antics by some tenants in the building they reside in, and their growing collection of credit cards left behind by wasted patrons. (Not mine!) And really, SO much more.
These gents even brought in wine FOR US!! Usually we're the ones supplying the good stuff. (Meaning Bud Lite.)
We learned a lot from these guys and they were great sports. Go get shitfaced at their fine establishment and tell them Shelby & Courtney sent you! Don't forget to tip.
