Yesterday I put on my Kentucky T-shirt and black leggings per Foster's instructions and headed to Dempsey's in the East Village to watch the UK/Georgia basketball game with my friends. As soon as I walked into the bar, I knew I had picked the wrong location because it was filled with loud, obnoxious Jets fans—what the heck?! I had heard that Kentucky fans go to Dempsey's, but they were nowhere in sight. We decided to make the best of it though and picked a table in the back near the pool table.
We were huddled in our little group for a while when I suggested we play a game of pool. Sure enough, guys started talking to us as soon as we started playing. Now, I didn't say they were cute or cool guys—or even over 5'4, but hey, it was a start!
Look how cute Tiff is. I loved her outfit, but made a joke that her beret might not be a boy magnet. She did rock the black leggings though. Guys, what do you think—beret or no beret in a sports bar?
Eve and Liza played a game of darts and the nice, but geeky guys followed. One of the guys kept going on and on about Kentucky and our southern accents. Note to northern guys: Don't do that. Just don't, it gets old.
Me and Mary Allen!
The highlight of the day was the almost-fight that broke out. Apparently the guy in the navy sweatshirt was talking smack about the Bengals, and a dude got pissed because it was his girlfriend's favorite team. Lame.
So we totally failed in the meeting-guys department, but had a really fun girls day, so I guess all in all it wasn't a total loss. We definitely learned that location is key—we'll know for next time! In all honesty, I don't think any of us cared that much about meeting guys, we just wanted to put Foster's tips to the test. I guess you have to want it for it to happen, but how do you do that without trying too hard? Oh, P.S. How freaking cute is Eve's coat? It's from Topshop! I want it, I want it. And I can get it if I don't eat for two weeks. Right, it's not happening.
Anyway, I'm thinking we'll give it another go for the Superbowl. We'll see how that goes!
