The airlines don’t like it when you decide to exit the plane before take off. At the final hour Coyote Ugly Vegas got a 12 month extension on the lease. I was on the plane headed to Vegas to have a drink with the staff on its last night when the call I had been waiting for came in!! I quickly exited the plane , knowing that the CU Vegas staff is intact and my new priority was my son’s school trip and our trip to Tokyo.
Thanks to everyone at NYNY and AMG. Make some money!!

Browsing the news on my computer. Low and behold, in Israel, there is a therapy that involves sex. The therapy is “Sex with a stranger ” to help with your emotional issues. Sign me up. I have a boat load of emotional issues. OK put my request in. Male, 6 pack, and definitely mute.
Feeling good today. I ran this morning. Ready for the day!

Thank you sweet universe for my pain being minimal to what I was expecting today. I can’t walk up or down stairs but it seems to be isolated to just my quads so I am thankful that I am not in the full body pain I was expecting. A few of my coworkers waited about 3 hours post race to invite me to be on the Coyote Ugly Tough Mudder team. ” How the hell do I train for that? and do I want to?”
As you can tell by my time, I am not fast . Will I slow the team down? I can’t think about this until I forget the pain and soreness I have been in for the last 24 hours. Good news is that my broken sesamoid bone didn’t cause any major problems. No crutches this time!!!
My son’s dog had what I thought was a seizure this morning. We had to rush him to the vet. It was scary to watch . The concern in my son’s eyes was sad to see. The vet doesn’t think it was a seizure but perhaps a muscle spasm that come from a heart issue or a remote chance of lead poisoning. We will see.
4 pm massage appointment. It was hard to get. It seems as if the Rock and Roll 1/2 and full marathoners have all called for the same service. Thank god my friend knew someone and I was able to weasel into an appointment

Take it off the bucket list! Half Marathon done. I ran it in 2:29! I can’t lie I am pretty proud of myself. At mile 9 my foot started hurting . I packed a bunch of ibuprofen so I would grab a Gatorade at the water stops and would pop a pill and keep on running. Chantel finished shortly after me. We split up around mile 4. It was so crowded it was too hard to stay at the same pace. I am sore from my shoulder blades to my toes. My quads are screaming. Chantel kept saying that her butt muscles are sore .
No doubt I will be limping for a few days but that’s fine. Not sure what it means when your lips turn blue but at the end of the race both Chantel and her husband noted my lip change . Going to pig out now. I have earned it!
Damn I ran 13 miles today. Today Chantel and I are MFPHes

One of my crazy dogs kept me up last night. Urgh. Bars did alright last night. I am frustrated with Key West. They do incredibly during daylight hours but seem to lose steam after midnight. Spring Break is coming so they better bang out some numbers!
Today I am going against my life’s philosophy of very few carbs. Going to make a huge pot of brown rice pasta and tuna. I figure I can eat it all day long so that tomorrow I do not lose energy . Chantel and I got our race numbers yesterday ! We are ready!
Interesting, all this running and I seem to be gaining weight. And my butt doesn’t look as lifted. Monday squats and back to normalcy, if I am not crippled.

Shout out to Daniel. ” Nice work” . Today was Daniel’s first day back from vacation and like clockwork the problems started rolling in. The big issue was a fine that had been sent to the Milwaukee bar that was not legitimate . Daniel called this morning warning me about it. Two hours later he had resolved the whole issue! That’s an awesome way to save money and start the weekend right!

Ok I decided not to wait for Jackson because of the rain and knowing he will be tired after school. I downloaded an app called Runtastic. This is how I did over 7 miles today. I am slow but my 7th mile was my 3rd fastest so I will take that as a good omen.

Mac our Memphis GM and Coyote Ugly MMA fighter gave me some excellent nutrition tips on how to get the energy I need for Sunday’s half Marathon. Mac is the man!
Got an email this morning about how long the line was for the Coyote in Vegas! Love to hear that .

Jackson told his dad and I tonight that 2 kids in his class had become loan sharks. They would ask for 50% interest on every loan. ( yes they got caught). Jackson’s dad said ” are they big?” No. “Then who is the muscle? ” There is none , they are small geeky kids. Of course Jackson’s dad said ” Jackson borrow money then don’t pay it back . What can they do?” Of course I added, then you can become the muscle and take 50% of their earnings. My son wasn’t into the idea. Thank god he’s better then us. Lol
His dad was in rare form telling stories of growing up in Queens . Jumping turnstyles. Getting into fights. Being mased then gouging some kids eyes out. Jackson was horrified. ” jackson you didn’t get the hot head that your dad had when he was younger. ” ” mom I am fast I can run away.” Good plan.

I can’t seem to get past the 6 mile run mark. Yesterday my foot started hurting around mile 6 so I stopped immediately. Today I just had no energy and ran only 3 miles. I need to carb up at night. I just got home from running and decided to eat some oatmeal, check my emails , work then go back out and try again. Hopefully, I will be a bit more energized. Plus it will probably rain and I need to practice running in the rain. This half marathon seems to be consuming all my energy. Damn Chantel!
Always a lot going on. Life seems to never stop or stand still. My feet are killing me so after some work I am getting myself some great pedicure. Jackson and I are taking his dad out for his birthday tonight. Sushi!

“Lil the Tokyo convention bureau emailed me and we have to have an english side to our business card and a Japanese translated side. ” Poor Lee has been inundated with graphic design work. We were also given hints for our trip to Japan. 1. Always have shoes that easily slip off 2. Small sized luggage 3. No jeans during dinner at restaurants and other suggestions. We have hired a translator for our booth too.
Jackson is actually better prepared then Lee and I. He finished a book entitled ” Geek in Japan.” He seems to know more of the cultural differences and some cool areas to venture into.
We are substituting inflatable mannequins for our real mannequins to decrease shipping costs. Who knew that we didn’t have to go to a porn store to buy them?

What are the chances of me actually running the full half marathon on Sunday after a weekend in Vegas? Ok heading home today. I have to try and get past 6 miles before Friday. I figure I will take Saturday off then Sunday , Bam.
Jeremy, our main merch vendor had given me Star Wars shirts and Tshirts as a joke a few months ago. The princess Leah sweatshirt is my favorite. If you put the hood up it appears as if you have your hair in the pigtail buns, just like Leah did in the movies. My son is mortified when I wear this sweatshirt . Jeremy :” Lil if you ever get upset with Jackson just show up at his school with the princess Leah sweatshirt on, hood up .” The vision of his face if I did that is priceless.

I am out with Lee and Jeremy . Lee and I needed some venting time. So much stress in the last month, it was so rejuvenating for us to stress together. Then we decided to meet Jeremy. ” Dude you just signed the female Walking Dead line. You better express me some t shirts.! ” The three of us are not LIKE family, we really are family. Ok I tried to post a picture of the three of us but it keeps posting a picture of jeff and my Russian partner Ruzlan. Go Russia. I will figure it out tomorrow .

So many inventions yet they cannot create a wheelchair accessible shower that does not leak water all over the bathroom? Also why do they claim ” no orange , no streaking” on a spray tanning machine, yet you leave both orange and streaky? Yup I look so hot! Orange and streaky. Life’s mysteries. Fun wedding yesterday. Ended up at Coyote afterwards then I gambled. I am horrible at craps but I made my money back at blackjack. Great night!
Heading home tomorrow . Definitely want to be in my own bed. Viva Las Vegas

Jeff, Lee , and I emailing at 3 am . Funny what stress can do. I am tired.
I was hoping that New Orleans would be putting up bigger numbers. They are doing alright but not great. Wonder if the Super Bowl being last weekend hurt us. It’s been the feeling of impending rain for 3 days yet it hasn’t rained .
Heading to Park City today with Jackson.

Omg That was the best Walking Dead yet!! Jackson and I were riveted! I will give my gratitude to the universe for the best damn show ever.
Headed to Park City tomorrow. Couldn’t get to the bar today. They rerouted a few parades to the streets in my neighborhood. I was trapped in my house all day.
San Antonio sold 254 body shots yesterday. Holy Shit. You guys rock!
Going to bed happy tonight

Trapped like a rat. There are parades rolling near my house. No way to get out right now.i will try and visit the Nola bar today if I can move my car.
Busy morning. Jeff just called me from the office. I have been getting work calls on every front. I am taking Jackson for a few days to Park City. I am looking forward to a little peace. ( that’s a joke too much going on).
I may be in Vegas next weekend. A friend , out if the blue, invited me to her Vegas wedding. Lol

Yes I am jealous. When Trey and I were dating we would always go together to the Endymion Ball. Well it’s the ball tonight , low and behold I have been replaced. ” Lil you broke up with me”. I know! Have a good time.
Ok I need to start making an effort.
Today Daniel called ” hey new dude answered your phone .” No that was Jackson. ” he sounds like a man.” That’s puberty my friend.

My son rocks. I asked him to help me get to 5 miles running today. He is now my running partner until the half marathon. He got me to run straight 5.2 miles and we then walked 1 mile. Tomorrow we will try 6 miles. 13 years old and Jackson is in killer shape!
Daniel ,Tommy, Lee,Marsha, Kevin,Tommy, and Jeremy made me a video for the 20 year anniversary. They just sent it to me. I love them all. Thank you guys. We are going to try and cut it from 20 minutes to 3 minutes and post it.

When the Vegas girls are on they are on! The bar was a big sing along. Fun. Kevin and I were watching every man and woman singing at the top of their lungs having fun.
I think we came up with some great decor ideas for the bar. NYNY will be pleased.
Back to Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

We have been scrambling to help the Vegas bar. There is a lease issue and we have been creating a proposal for NYNY. I commend Lee! Everything I have asked for , not only has he supplied it but with artistic presentation. I haven’t been sleeping because of thoughts. He has t been sleeping because he has been working on this kick ass PR kit. Great job!
Tonight we bounced in and out of Coyote Vegas. They have a lot of limitations because of the health Department and the union but I will say this : they are incredible at the sing along. They were packed ( as they always are) and the had every Peyton seeing and having fun. Great work!

I am laughing so hard. Kevin and I ended up on the same flight out of Atlanta to Vegas. Kevin was being a gentlemen and putting my bag up . While he was doing this a very good looking man walked behind me and gave me the direct eye stare with the double squeeze of the arm. Bold move with Kevin standing right next to me. Could it be that Kevin is sporting his monthly black eye and isn’t looking too threatening? Or is this guy just that cocky and smooth? ( Kevin has a monthly slip and fall. Usually these falls are from too much alcohol which result in facial contusions. Currently his healing black eye and nose cuts are from Jess at the NY anniversary party. She tripped him and he landed on his face.)

Nothing better then opening the manager’s logs and seeing awesome numbers from almost all the bars. I opened OKC first, bam awesome Tuesday! Austin, Bam. New Orleans, bam…. By the time I got to San Antonio I knew ” damn my managers and staff rock!” ( Milwaukee was a bit slow )
Heading to Vegas today. Kevin, Lee, and I have to work on something out there. Trying to get myself motivated to run 5 miles this morning. Was on a call with some of the people from NYNY yesterday . The women execs are competing in the Tough Mudder soon. I need to up my game obviously.

Ran 4 miles today. I need to be at 6 miles by Sunday. My orthopedic surgeon told me to take 800 mg of ibuprofen and massage my foot with the broken seisamoid bone before a long run. OK last time I ran 6 miles I was on crutches for 2 weeks. Let’s see if I can pull this half marathon off. Damn you Chantel!
San Antonio and Key West rocking last night.

I won the 2nd quarter of the football pool at the New Orleans bar! Nothing like going home with more money then when you left! What a great game and great weekend for the New Orleans bar.
Its been a relatively quiet day today. Almost strange. This weekend I received the Russian bar numbers. Holy shit they are doing great. Bam.
Called a running coach to help me prepare for a half marathon that Chantel signed us up for. ” How many miles can you run?” I usually do between 2-3 miles. ” Ok well good luck your going to need it”. Shit.

I try not to root for one bar over the other unless its a special event or on the weird chance that I am the manager on duty at one of the bars , but yesterday I was rooting for New Orleans to crush everyone . Bam , they did! San Antonio came close but not close enough! Lol
New Orleans is only 2000 sq feet. San Antonio is sitting at 6500 sq feet. Excellent job.
Thank God because I was fuming mad at Ernie after Friday night so he has not completely gotten back in my good graces but he’s inching his way there.
Heading to the bar around 2 pm. Should be fun in the French quarter today.
The other night I met a couple . The husband is the managing partner for Emeril’s restaurants. He told me that Friday night they had to turn away Paul McCartney and his entourage because they had 900 covers . ” really? Put a table together in the kitchen” turn down Paul McCartnry? Unbelievable. One of the New Orleans investors was reminding me that one of our girls 11 years ago gave a bodyshot to Jeff Garcia . I remember LL Cool J looking gorgeous . Rock solid body. I will find out today if anyone good came to the bar.

Hot damn! Go New Orleans. The New Orleans bar is crushing everyone . Cross my fingers they might beat Mardi Gras numbers tonight. I am going there tomorrow to watch the game. Should be fun. I need to go back in my files and see what we did the Saturday before Super Bowl 11 years ago. I think they have plenty of time to crush our old numbers! Bam

Super Bowl weekend in Nola. So nice to log into the computers and see New Orleans topping all the bars in sales.

CRoss my fingers for the New Orleans bar. I hope they have an incredible weekend with the super bowl in town. I will stop by Sunday.
Just received the LA lease. I thought the NY lease was the worst we have ever encountered. Low and behold this lease is infinitely worse. A lot of it is the California state requirements. Its a wonder that any business can open under these strict rules. Now the process is to weed out what’s unneccesary and then judge if we can survive with the rest.
Bought a beautiful gown for tonight’s Mardi Gras ball. Nothing boosts the spirits like a gown and high heels
