I rarely like to do shows like Last Thursday. Yes, I know it's free, but it's so stressful for me to find the right spot and navigate the crowds. Yesterday started out a bit dicey, but by the end of the night, I was very happy that I had gone.
We were set up at the corner of 23 and Alberta, this is a very busy spot and had lots of people drop by. I got to hang out with Slaybia Majora, my former fresh meat coach, Bitter Sweet, retired Guns n Rollers, Bawdy Czec from Lava City Roller Dolls, Caramia Cheri, a former wrecker, and Izabell Ringer, my derby idol!
it didnt really seem like I was that busy, but I walked away with 175$ last night. Not bad for 5 hours of my life. I think the key is probably to be in a group with friends and to try to have fun. Next week it's off to First Thursday in the Pearl and First Friday in Vancouver if I can get in. Mama needs to pay the bills.
Oh, I had a vegan po'boy at Palm State Gumbo. And a cup of house made vegan coconut mango ice cream and a sweet tea. All very highly recommended! The sandwich was huge and I got all of it for 8$. Not bad at all.
