Nice check from New Orleans. Today they are definitely my favorite bar!!

Oh god San Antonio was the troubled bar today. Our bar was supposedly leaking onto the ceiling of the restaurant below us. Marsha got a quickie fix through friends. This morning when I saw the log,  my first instinct was ” Why didn’t Kevin tell me about this?” Well Kevin didn’t tell me because he didn’t know. I was expecting him to freak out. He actually sounded calm when I spoke to him.   He told me that he was doing the research to make sure that the work done wasn’t just a bandaid but a real fix. In the Coyote Ugly World no one gets Kevin’s wrath but me. He will be so kind to everyone then he will immediately call me up ” They just Danieled the plumbing. I am so pissed.” In our world Danieling something means getting it done super cheap but having to redo it multiple times because it was done so cheaply. Let me guess when I post this Kevin will call ” take that post down. “

Bars are all over the place this weekend in regards to numbers. I am on a mission to get the OKC staff in a better place. Trying to find a half marathon for them to enter with me. Such nice girls but they need boot camp. Amber should have them on restrictions.

I haven’t even read last night’s logs. My dress was awesome for the military ball. But the ball was a bit boring. A lot of speeches.  Full sit down meal.Small talk.. Blah, blah This is a horrible observation and yet another thing to come to haunt me when I get to the pearly gates but ” why do officers have unattractive wives? ” I looked around the room and there were decent looking officers with overweight wives. I know, who the fuck am I to judge? But I wasn’t the only one to notice. Is it about being deployed and feeling more secure that the unattractive wife will be honorable waiting at home? Not sure


This is on 2nd ave right off of St. Marks ( 8th St). The NYC bar is on 1st Ave between 9th and 10th. So scary. It’s just amazing that there weren’t more fatalities .

On a good note, I am going to the Marine Corp Ball ( maybe its not called that I am not sure but it’s a military ball) tomorrow night on Coronado. FUN!!

Building exploded only 3 blocks from the NYC bar. So scary. Supposedly a gas leak. I remember after 9/11 there was a layer of dust everywhere. Supposedly there is a layer around the bar as well right now. So scary. As a NYer you get used to certain things. After talking to Daniel and verifying that everyone is safe my thoughts were ” I hope Tish doesn’t ask to move back to Austin.” Urgh. Please Tish don’t move back. You are a NYer now, shit happens. “

Key West is haunting me. URGH. ” Lil we are super short staffed. Lil the lease for the apartment is running out. Lil I just terminated the door guy for having Meth at the door.” Key West looks like a paradise. So beautiful . But an island filled with misfit people. I know I am generalizing , I am sure there are good people that live in Key West but let me assure you they are a very very small group. ” Lil none of the bouncers have teeth. Girls applied without teeth.” Drugs + addiction = bad teeth.   Costing us a damn fortune bringing in staff from other parts of the country.


The Austin bar is killing it! I love that. Go Austin. Key West had a good night. I got a call today about a girl leaving Key West saying she could not work for this crazy place . She took the first plane back to her home bar. I am not pleased with this.

I got myself a convertible. I love it!!! Like a kid in a candy store. The one worry was telling Jackson. All the years of bringing him to Buddhist Temples and volunteering helping people is now kicking me in the ass. The look of complete disapproval when he saw my car was exactly what I expected. Isn’t the goal for our children to be better then us? I have achieved that. He’s definitely better. So I received a convertible and on the same day he was asked to do two internships for the summer.  One at the special olympics organization and the other through the city of SD helping disabled children and elderly people with hearing loss. ( He knows sign language). The universe is now balanced.

BAM!! One by one going through last night’s numbers and only 1 bar did not rock it. ( New Orleans ugh) Nashville the heavy hitter last night but Oklahoma City having the best night in a long time. Great job everyone. So happy!!

Last night I went to a fundraiser for a charity called ” Just in Time”. This charity helps foster kids who age out of the system. They turn 18 and they are just sent out there all alone with nothing. I heard some sad stories with a lot of happy endings because of this charity. People overcoming adversity. A wonderful evening. Well my wallet was out. I won two things at auction. 1. A 12 person texas hold em night that is catered at my home. I sam going to give this to my corporate staff when they are in SD. and 2. ( Don’t laugh). I bought 5 singing lessons. I asked the teacher (a former foster kid)  if we can do it as a group with a few Coyotes as well. Singing lessons has always been on my bucket list. Spent more then I wanted but it was for a good cause and I am excited to use my purchases.

My heart breaks for Mellisa one of  our Vegas Coyotes. Her husband died in a target shooting accident . The report says that it was the result of a bullet ricocheting . Just a tragic tragic accident . So heart broken for her .

Last night I was arranging a new rug in the office that Jackson and I share. I took a picture of it and he said ” is conversation so sparse with your friends that you need to send pictures and discuss the new rug. Mom you either need new friends or a better life “. Ok smartass! Lmao

Fun night with the Austin staff . Very kind intelligent women and men. Really enjoyed speaking with the girls . A few moms. Some students . An event  planner. We even have a fashion design student . Loved her gown portfolio.  Of course we ended the evening with two of the girls showing me how to chug a beer without being messy. Always a lady even while chugging beer..


I found out last night that while Daniel gave up drinking in December he drove an Uber car for extra money . ( believe he gets paid a lot from Coyote).. In his mind if there was a night where he was bored and he would traditionally go out with friends he decided that he would check on the Austin bar and take Uber passengers . I truly love that about him . Good for him . He will be the millionaire that lives modestly but twice a year takes incredible vacations . Ok heading back home .

oh and I lost my glasses so I can’t see what I am writing

San Diego Half Marathon and 5K today with Coyote Ugly SD staff! Bam. so proud of everyone.  Time 2:11. I was doing great until ” Switchback hill”. This hill was a 2 mile incline. I had to walk some of it. There was no way I could run the whole thing. So demoralizing when people are flying by me. The bar is on the route only 2 blocks away from the finish line. So cool to be so close to finishing and have the staff high 5 me when passing the bar. There was live tracking so PINKY was tracking everyone.  Go Levi. 3 years old. Finished the 5 K!

IMG_4496IMG_4495IMG_4498Fun day. Now I am in bed.

Bars rocking yesterday. Thanks Pabst for making NYC fun last night. Heading to the SD bar today.  Heading to Austin bar on Monday! Back to work.

Why do I sign up for these damn half marathons. I am already dreading the injuries I will have after Sunday’s race. But I know the SD staff is excited.

” Mom we will never speak of these things again.” That came after I explained to Jackson that I went for a colonic and what that entailed. I think in Jackson’s eyes I just reached a new crazy. I don’t care what anyone says you don’t feel great during or after colonic. During the colonic it feels like you constantly have to go number 2. The only fascinating part is watching what comes out. I know that might sound gross but you can’t stop watching. Supposedly I am extremely healthy according to what was in the tube. The woman walked into the room and gave me a foot rub about halfway through. There is absolutely nothing more torturous then someone speaking to you and having everyday conversation while getting a colonic. And afterwards you feel kind of sick. My stomach was off all night.

Had a Japanese potential licensee into the SD bar the other night. That would be fun. OK  time to get off my ass and head to gaslamp.

I absolutely Love the ” Cheers ” video from the NY Staff!!! SO MUCH FUN !!! Thank You!!!

” Lee , did you photoshop my body?” No Lil. ” Shit now if I gain any weight people are going to say ” wow you look so much thinner on the website.”After having a tv show you get very accustomed to the negative emails about your weight, looks, attitude etc.  I relished the positive emails.

Anywho.. ” I am almost ready to upload my new pictures. I can be very hard on myself so it’s not easy for me, Lee or the photographer when we work on my photos. But I look thin . I am not as horrified as I normally am. Shit it almost makes me want to get the Naked Boudoir photos done. If I break a leg at one of these damn races, that could be the universe telling me to belly up to the bar at the Golden Corral buffet.

Bars doing well. The season is coming!!

Went to Vegas with friends. Ended up at dinner with the retail director of NYNY. What a nice guy. ( Totally helps that the Vegas Coyote Ugly is doing well). We went out with this woman who is the GM of the Mandalay Bay properties. She took us to the Foundation Room and MIX after dinner. Talk about feeling old. I remember the Foundation Room as a more exclusive place where people had to be members to get in. This was definitely not exclusive. Other then our group there was no one older then 25 . MIX skewed a little older. Regardless ” Hey Lil let’s order another bottle.” It’s 3 am I am missing hours upon hours of beauty sleep. Bars kicked ass this weekend. NYC had a killer Friday, nice to see. Nashville kicking everyone’s ass on Saturday. Even Key West picking up speed.  I sent my friend’s son to Coyote Vegas with 4 Marine friends. They went very early so no shananagans .
