Drop Dime On Hollywood



Let me tell you a little story.. .

  Baumann, Finance and I are looking for an extra monk to accompany us on our journey to the Henry Fonda Music Box Theater in Hollywood to check out the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club concert.  Fortunately, our old friend Saman was down for the cause and we proceeded to drink multiple Adolphi at his house which was close to the theater.  Buzzin’.  Then we go to the show where we proceeded to have plenty more Adolphi.  Really Buzzin’.  With BRMC getting gay and acoustic-ee  on us, we decided to bail a little early and head out to one of Hollywood’s many watering holes.  Saman suggests a place nearby his house called The Dime. 

This is where it gets good. . .

     The Dime is normally the place where Saman can go after a long day of work and just mellow out.  However, upon our arrival, he sees a bouncer outside and several people outside waiting to get in.  Confused, he asks the bouncer, "What’s going on tonight??  Why is it so crowded?"  Bouncer says, "Someone in there is having a big birthday party.  We’re at capacity.  It might be a while before  I can get you guys in."  So we wait. . . In the mean time, we’re all pretty wasted, we’re smoking, and getting irritated. Saman however is shootin’ the shit with the bouncer this whole time.  He says to him, "I had no idea it was going to be so crowded tonight!  I just wanted to show my friends from Santa Barbara a cool place to hang out." 

     Turns out the guy is from Santa Barbara.  Then I weasel my way in on the coversation, attempting to use my pseudo celebrity status to get us into the bar.  Fortunately for us, he listened to KJEE a lot when he lived here.  I told him I was friends with Spencer and Phatty and everyone else, and sure enough we were in like flint. 

      It was literally a matter of seconds before Finance bumped in to some chick and almost knocked the drink out of her hand.  Finance comes up to me soon after, taps me on my shoulder and says, "Hey Baggs, I think I just bumped into one of the Olsen twins."  I just laughed, but sure enough, a glance around the room proved that it was in fact one of the Olsen twins.Olsentwins200506302118

      This place was packed!  I was heading towards the bar when some chick behind me puts her hand on my shoulder and ploitely says, "excuse me," so she could get by.  I turned around, stutter steppped aside, and found myself rubbing elbows with Misha Barton from the OC.Images447029_mischabarton

      After that, things just started getting out of control.  Jager bomb after Jager bomb, Adolphous after Adolphous. . . we were monk’d to the n’th degree.. .  literally.  We were getting pretty ratarded at the bar. . .  grunting and doing monkey walks.  Baumann is wasted. . . really wasted.  As if we were in the privacy of our own homes, Baumann leaps up on top of the bar and starts making monkey moves. . .  no joke!  On the bar!  At first I was kind of embarassed, but the monkey was actually well received. . .  people were laughing, cheering and clapping at Baumann’s monkey ass on the bar. 

     What I saw next I will never forget.   Baumann extends his hand into the crowd of people, pulls a chick from the crowd up onto the bar, where, with an embarassed laugh, she briefly immitates the monkey moves.  More people cheer and clap, her and Baumann share a laugh, and she stepped off the bar.  That chick was Misha Barton from the OC

    I will read that bedtime story to my kids one day.
    Last time we went with Saman to that bar the only celebrities we saw were Dax from Punk’d hanging out outside with the guy who plays Lex Luther on Smallville. Inside wasn’t much better, Nick Stahl aka the Ugly Yellow Pedophile from Sin City, and Tobey Maguire aka Effeminate Spidey.
