Another NightClub Disaster!!

August 20, 2009

Note: Please watch the videos! πŸ˜›

Time, one of the few fundamental entities in life seems to be galloping ahead for me. Last Friday, I settled down to sleep at 2 in the night thinking that I would enjoy my weekend and laze around doing nothing, but on the contrary, it flew past me.

I was woken up atΒ One in the afternoon (Saturday) by my roommate Mr. SK who wanted to know if I would be free to visit one the best nightclubs in San Francisco. In a moment of weakness, I said β€œYes” and β€œThanks”!!!

β€œYes” to go to the nightclub and β€œThanks” because it was lunch time and he had woken me up at the correct time. Soon after (having my lunch), I settled down to sleep once again for my Saturday Siesta. And thus by the time I woke up at 5, my Saturday was almost over or so I thought!!!

Mr. SK informed me that he hadΒ managed to getΒ our names into the guest list for a nightclub called β€œRuby Skye”, and that we would be a party of 5 guys!! Since I was fully conscious this time, I told him that I would opt out as my wounds from my previous nightclub experience were still fresh in my mind but he did not back down and so I had no other option but to comply.

By 9, all of us were ready and in that half hour drive, Mr. SK taught me the basic theories behind the β€œAmerican nightclub”. He and his gang are pretty regular nightclub visitors, so I got a lot of information about the various nightclubs in SF.

By 9:45 PM, I stood in front of the impressive β€œRuby Skye” nightclub which looked like it was movie set and finally after waiting in the line, we managed to get in.
It truly was awesome to say the least!! And as usual, I totally felt out of place. Any south Indian worth his salt, first needs to make a grand entry, and so, I took heart from our β€œNext Superstar”, who makes a grand entry even under the most difficult circumstances,

I also decided to walk in looking cool with this theme music running in my head.

The night was young and the crowds had not yet assembled in full numbers. My friends soon left me all alone to do their thing: Dancing with girls.

And so I spent my time standing in the sidelines with my drink and there were no flies to swat!!

About an hour later, my friend came up to me and told me that I needed to lose my inhibitions and have a blast in the club.

As an avid fan of the β€œNext Superstar”, the only way I could have had a blast in a club was by doing something like this:

But the presence of the tall, well built bouncers deterred me from doing that!!!

And so, I spent most of the time talking to my friends in India and even went out for dinner. And so by One, another friend came up to me and told me that I needed to enjoy the music and get into the party groove.

But our β€œNext Superstar” has alsoΒ told us that:

β€œMichael vandalum, Madonna vandalum, ooram pogathu Tamizh gaana paatu”

(Even in the presence of Michael Jackson or Madonna , our Tamizh Folk songs will never be sidelined)

And so, I endured the nightclub for a few more hours and finally we got back home at about 5 in the morning after having an early breakfast.

It was without doubt another nightclub disaster!!! I don’t think I have the energy to visit another one (and look like a fool) for some time now………………………….

PS: Another reason why Time is flying by now is that work is damn hectic now!! BTW, If I asked a girl for a dance, her response would have most probably been like this:

    OG! I can totally empathise with you. I was exactly the same during my MBA days. Never used to get onto the dance floor. Never used to be asked out by the guys either. But then, one fine day, a close friend (my confidante) and I hit the pub, all by ourselves, and had a BLAST!!!

    So let me give you some tips…you could treat me like a concerned older sibling. OK?
    OG: okay akka πŸ˜› ready for the advice πŸ˜›



    OG: will implement these tips the next time πŸ˜› Thanks!!!!!!

    So, please! make a date with a female friend or colleague and hit the pub, and let us know how it goes.
    OG: hahahahahah πŸ˜› if only that will happen πŸ˜›

    OG: I do that already :mrgreen:

  21. August 22, 2009 7:25 am

    What a Ruby Skye experience, that was ???? And you managed to be inside, doing not many a thing till 5 next morng ???? OMG !!!

    But it was great fun reading the post. May you have a better experience the next time at the night club !!!

    Oh come on! After seeing you dance.. I am reasonably sure that any girl wouldnt find it that bad! if you are shy to ask a stranger.. ask your colleague in office and tell her your predicament.. she will feel symphathetic and she would say yes πŸ˜›
    OG: hmmmm, I dont think that any gal in her right mind would accept πŸ˜›
