Just got a call from my son’s dad. ” are you alright?” Yes I am fine. It appears that Jackson called him up and said ” dad I am worried about mom. She bought all this ice cream and chocolate and made herself a huge sundae. She only eats like that when she is upset.” That is funny. I was off my game yesterday. Some stressful work stuff coupled with some stressful personal stuff. Not only did I eat the big sundae but at the same time I ate soy crisp crackers with Boursin cheese. And for whatever reason I feel better today. ( I did double my workout this morning out of guilt. ) But I am back on my game.
Mother Fucking Powerhouse!

Chantel and I are doing the Rock and Roll half Marathon in New Orleans. It’s at the end of February. I am definitely not in running condition for a half marathon. I could do 4-5 miles but my already broken foot couldnt handle 13. I need to start getting myself together. Start pushing myself and see how far I can actually go.
Daniel is on a 16 day no drinking program. Good for him. I bet he drops a few pounds. Have to go out to Vegas and start planning the Tokyo trade show. We, when I say We , I mean Lee has a lot of work to do .

Out of lemons comes lemonade. Woke up today stressed about my personal life and also a work item that is turning sour. Fuck it. I allowed myself to feel bad for half the day , now I am fine. As a mother fucking powerhouse, I have the power to change things.
Jackson has the biggest pimple I have ever seen on his nose. It’s commanding me to pop it. But he won’t allow me to

Finally recuperated. New Orleans is starting to get crowded for the Super Bowl . Poor Maya cut 4 tendons on her hand. That really stinks.

Kevin sent this letter to everyone in corporate. Wow so moving.

Yesterday we celebrateed 20 years! Its been 20 years since the birth of our company. How many bars can say that?!?? It just baffles me to think about that. I have been with Coyote Ugly for about half of that and in that time I have laughed and cried. I have made life long friends. I have discovered respect for individuals that caught me by surprise. I have been taught by our brand and its employes the very definition of tenacity. I have seen people discover new self limits under great stress. I have been inspired by our leadership. I’ve learned that a good CUS manager, guy or girl, always has Tampons on hand. This company has sent me to China, Dubai, Australia, London, El Salvador, Russia, Canada and Mexico. It’s been the single biggest learning experience I’ve ever had. We are now 20 years strong! I look forward to the next 20! Thank you so much for the ride!

Last night’s conversation with Daniel ” this is the best anniversary ever! We rock!”
This morning’s conversation with Daniel ” please lord kill me quickly, I am never drinking again” . Daniel’s retort ” Lil i just vomited in my mouth and swallowed it.” So far the count is 7 people from corporate completely unbearably hungover and 1 fine in her bed happy as a clam.
Last night was incredible. Of course there were a few snaffoos. Fifteen minutes before opening a cop shows up asking for our garbage decal. I had to sweet talk him so we wouldn’t get fined. Unfortunately I think we only bought a couple of days grace. Then poor Maya cut her hand and had to go to the hospital.
The NY bar kicked ass last night. Elle choreographed an incredible piece for the Rocky Horror picture show and the Bouncers were outstanding doing Sexy and You Know it. Really incredible night

Big NY 20 year anniversary. Jeremy our merch person was so sick of me asking for spaghetti strap t shirts that he made me 7 for every day of the week. Promised I would wear 1 a day for the next week. Here’s day 1.
20 years . Some great years and some not so great but it has been one hell of a ride!

Just found an app called Don’t Dial. It stops you from drunk dialing. I just installed it knowing that I will be drinking for the next two days in NY. The beauty about being human is knowing that you are wonderful in some things and a complete dumbass in others. I know exactly who I will be blocking phone calls to in the next few days!

Heading to NY tomorrow . Meeting Chris N one of the original bartenders to go shopping and drink a little vino. 20 years. Omg. I spoke with Liz Gilbert today. She worked at the NY bar the first couple of years. ( she wrote Eat , Pray, Love). We came to the conclusion that we are getting old. So be it. At this very moment I feel very happy. I think I found the leather pants I wore to the opening 20 years ago. Dying to see if they still fit? Big weekend

My assistant Judy Had to put her mother in a hospital today. My friend Jill had to put her father in a hospital today. Judy, born and raised in Louisiana . Jill born and raised in Jersey.
Judy: ” so sad to see all the sick people. I felt so sorry for everyone”
Jill: ” Look I know they are all sick but why do they have to moan so loudly?”
So much love for mankind. LOL

After months of debate I am finally receiving the new lease for the NY bar. Hoping for a smooth lease signing.
Hot damn LA is coming on quickly. Creating a menu and design. Kevin is definitely stressed . Today a friend asked me if anyone on our team has food experience. Well we do run 3 bars with kitchens but for a higher end menu, like LA will have the answer is No. Daniel worked at Mc Donald’s. Its definitely looking like we may have to hire out for this project.

Went to buy lingerie. Saleswoman : ” honey, you aren’t a 32 C your a 32 DD.” . How did that happen. How can my jeans be smaller but my boobs be this big? Urgh. Double D!
Big NY anniversary this weekend! Going to be fun.

What to wear? I brought 2 dresses but its so cold in the Austin bar I may wear jeans! 9 year anniversary . Wow seems like yesterday. I remember shooting our first reality show during the opening of the Austin bar. Everything was going wrong . In fact , 9 years ago we had to run on the Dallas’ Coyote Ugly catering license because we had not been approved for our liquor license. The cameras followed us around everywhere but they never spliced in the real ups and downs of opening a bar. Their only focus was the girls . Regardless , we did it and the bar is still rocking! Happy anniversary

” Tommy, god damn it turn on the heat at the Austin bar!” It’s colder in the bar then it is outside!
Sitting in the bar with Chantel and the girls waiting to start practice. ” Lil I want to work in NY so I can be a bitch. Tommy won’t let me be a bitch at this bar.”
” Lil I threw up cheese fries until 2:30 am because I have morning sickness.”
” Lil I realized this week that I am way out of shape.”
” tommy if I get sick because you are too cheap to turn on the heat, I will be pissed!”

On my way to Austin. I was wearing a dress and felt very cold. So I went to the airplane bathroom to change. I was able to slide my jeans on but I didn’t lock the door properly. The door swings open and I am in my jeans with just a bra. Probably 4 people sitting close to the bathroom saw me. Thank god I was wearing a bra . And it was a nice one. Urgh Thank you universe for making me wear a bra today ! I will buy myself a drink to try and play cool.

Lol. On a conference call right now. Lee and I are speaking very energetically about a higher end decor for the LA spot. Kevin just screamed ” is my phone on mute? Why are you guys not including me?” Cause we are speaking over you purposely !” Lol Lee and I are hysterical laughing.
Oh that was priceless!

Kudos to Jazmine in Denver. She’s the AM in Denver. She’s pregnant and last night a customer bought a body shot off of her pregnant belly. We should definitely charge more for a pregnant bodyshot! Love it!
I have been in a tremendous mood for the last few days. I have been the DJ this morning in my house. Fun morning. Already did half my workout.
Tomorrow heading to Austin.

My son’s dad just called me. ” You have forced us to spend 11 years in Nola. For god sakes pick a new city to raise Jackson , so I can get out of here.” I am thinking that this statement was fueled by his date last evening. ” Lil, she was hillbillyish.”
So I am guessing you won’t go out with her again? ” Of course I will go out with her again. Beggars can’t be choosers.” Lol
I don’t know where I would move. I love the San Francisco area but that would make my work schedule so hard with all this traveling. I really like San Diego too. Who knows? I know that my son’s dad would make sure he was close enough to care for Jackson on his scheduled parental days. I will have to do some research.

I can’t say enough about the Betty Page store. If you fit into their clothes , they just scream sex! Without being too sexy. Simple , form fitting, and totally sexy. Plus the dresses are reasonably priced. Found another Betty Page store in NY. Jackson just got home , I am currently in high heels trying on different dresses. ” Mom what are you doing?” ( Don’t worry about it). I should be their spokesperson.
New Orleans had a miserable night last night. Friday night with Monday night numbers. It is 80 degrees and miserable here.
This week is the Austin anniversary. This time of the year I have 4 anniversaries . NY, New Orleans, Austin, and Milwaukee. Definitely takes a toll on my liver. I am kind of thankful that New Orleans and Milwaukee are pushing their parties back a bit.

Oh Shit! I was on the phone with someone I have been dating. It’s very new. The flight attendant was rushing me off the phone. ” I have to get off the phone LOVE YOU”. Oh I am cringing! What the fuck? I can’t believe I said that. I am sick. That is a dating 101 mistake . Oh fuck. Oh god! I am half laughing half cringing. There is only one thing I can do and that’s to pretend it didn’t happen .

Spent two days in NYC. I think the events of Hurricane Sandy has changed the people here. I was walking to the bar yesterday. The mailman said hello as well as other pedestrians. I actually looked behind me when the mailman said hello thinking he must be speaking to someone else . New Yorkers saying hello to random strangers, I felt like I was in some alternate universe.
Elle is doing a great job working with the NY staff for the anniversary party. I absolutely love all the bouncers participating. They really add a lot of positive energy to the bar. It makes me so happy to see such a unified team. Richard wants to wrap his truck , Coyote Ugly. ” Richard really?” Ok I told him to price it out.

Press release goes out today. Thanks Redbull and Pabst for helping us to throw this party. Of course we will be toasting with the Coyote Ugly Whiskey. I land in NY in Few hours

Nice words for a great GM. Thanks Pinky
Thought you might want to know that people do compliment our managers every once in a while. Daniel

Daniel-
I wanted to write as we hosted a private party at Coyote Ugly in Denver last Friday and I was so impressed with the way Matt Keeling handled our group. We had a roped off section of the bar dedicated to our group and quite a few people so I know Matt and the staff worked extra hard to make sure my group was taken care of. This was first time at Coyote Ugly and wasn’t sure what to expect, but was very impressed and everyone had a wonderful time. Matt definitely went above and beyond to make sure our event was successful and I truly appreciated it

Jeremy stop toying with me. All these bars and I only ask for 1 thing. An extra small spaghetti strap t-shirt with the 20 year logo on it. Yoga top/ yoga bra .
I used to ask for a plain sweatshirt with our original logo on it. But over the years, I have received sweatshirts with flames down the sleeves. Girls all over the graphics. And various other over the top designs. So I have given up on that.
” But Jeremy, its my 20 year anniversary. come on!”
( Just received his response. ” If I can find the box labeled 1980’s on it.”

Painful! Thank God for KW and San Antonio. Heading to NY tomorrow . Things are falling together for the anniversary party. Redbull and Pabst really coming to the table. Thank you. Now what to wear? I used to bartend at the NY bar with a pair of pink rubber pants. I wonder if I can find them? I wonder if after 20 years I can fit in them?

Spoke with my crossfit friend today. He was complaining about gaining weight over the holidays.( yeah right, the guy is the human Adonis). ” Lil, fat and white don’t go together so just know if you ever get fat you better start tanning.” Ok I will take note.
Heading to NY this week. Can’t wait to see the girls rehearse for the anniversary party. Excited for the 20 year anniversary T-shirts to come out as well.

Over flu first toast from a patron
Here’s to the girl in the little red shoes, she smoked all my cigarettes and drank all my booze. She ain’t got no cherry, but that ain’t no sin, she’s still got the box that the cherry came in.
