Gunther The Grizzly Bear visits some State College Nightclubs
Our first stop
on the tour was Zeno's; and after verifying that this was indeed a very
old bear, the doorman kindly let Gunther check the ID of the next hapless
person to enter the bar. He was a bit surprised...
working the door, Gunther then tried his paw at bartending. The first,
and only successful order was: 1 coke, no hair.
"paying his dues" Gunther settled down for a drink. Unfortunately
for Gunther, someone had ordered wheat beer, and Gunther doesn't much care for
wheat beer. According to Gunther, Budweiser and Wheat beer are the closest
things you can get to marmot pee, that you can buy in a bottle...
the first pitcher arrived, a game of Hearts broke out. My comrade sans
fur to my left is Bill, who whupped Gunther's hairy butt at hearts. Gunther notes
that cards are very very hard to hold in paws, and hard to pick up off
table with no claws (Gunther has no claws so he won't mess up the furniture)...
whupped at hearts, someone tries to get Gunther to smoke a "cancer stick"
but Gunther knows better and politely declines offer after the photo is taken...
cards, Gunther got "nuggied" by someone who kinda looks like Buddy
Hackett, Gunther will just call him Buddy. Buddy challenged Gunther to a "death
match" at the pool table; to which Gunther and his partner Rick gladly
Rick was breaking, so Gunther racks 'em good and tight, as Rick always gets
lots of action at this table. (Gunther thought at time Rick meant pool and
not She-Bears, but Gunther not so sure now)...
a short stick to aid Gunther, shots like this were pretty hard. In fact, Gunther
did not make this shot, and "Buddy" made fun of Gunther. Gunther reminded
"Buddy" what happened when they made David Banner angry on TV
and advised "Buddy" not to irritate Gunther...
evidenced by this photo, "Buddy" did not heed Gunther's inital warnings,
and suffered the consequences...
Well, Gunther and
Rick made a run of three games on the table (pretty good pool playing for
someone with fur all over his paws. Since Rick wasn't too keen on eating
a mauled Buddy Hackett, Gunther and Rick decided that they would settle for
beer instead. What kind of beer do bears drink? Honey Brown of course!
Gunther was still
trying to suck some suds out of the bottle, but Gail wanted Gunther to give
her the empty...
Gunther and Gail
dance to an Elvis tune playing on the juke box (Gunther is not a very good
dancer, and Gail is a very, very good dancer) :-(
Gunther pounds the
rest of his beer and is off to the next bar...
