Ordinary

Many bars have competed for our attention this week and certain crowds seemed to gravitate to one more than any other.  Generally you could find faculty, for instance, at Mory's.  And the (mostly, but not exclusively) young, late night crowd at the Anchor.

We generally were at Ordinary.  Tasty cocktails.  Good service.  Dark paneled walls and a collegiate feel.

Last Monday, the final night of session one, the main room ended up completely packed with our people.  Yale Writers' Conference people.

Yale Writers' Workshop 4 039

Last night Tanya, Ploi, and I spent some of our final night there.  We recognized no one else in the packed room.  Being a Saturday night, I'm sure it was filled with locals.  And we don't know very many of the session two people anyway.  We were so tired we only had one drink.

At the table in the center of the room, as we walked in, a young gay couple were sitting.  They had their arms wrapped around each other.  Big, tender, sexy smiles on their faces.  They kissed.

Not a gay bar.  Just ordinary.
