Anniversaries are the one day a year that I allow bars to go off brand model. At the Memphis anniversary Lee and Mike ( Nashville) decide to karaoke Vanilla Ice on the bar. Thank god for video on iPhones to preserve these wonderful and embarrassing moments.



” Ma’am let me get this straight . You drank too much , entered a pie eating contest and cried? Why would you cry if you got to eat pie?” Valid point . Valuable lesson . Don’t drink when you are grieving the loss of your parents .

On a good note , Memphis staff is awesome . A real family vibe. Girls are super good looking and fit! Finally a bar that has fit girls!

I apologize to everyone for being an Ass. Between my mother dying and eating pie I was an emotional wreck .

” go big or go home”. Well if I was going to have an emotional break down at least I had a huge one in front of staff and friends . The good news is that I was able to get the pie out of my hair with only one shampoo”.

Universe please give me a one day amnesia so I don’t have to remember yesterday

Memphis bar rocking last night . Today is the anniversary party. Went to bar then went bar hopping with Danirl, Drew, and Leslie. I am feeling a lot less then stellar right now . So non stellar that I actually fell out of my shoes . ( not joking really just happened ). Please universe don’t let me get arrested like I almost did at last year’s Memphis anniversary party . No I did nothing bad but being the owner of the bar has some downfalls when incidents happen . And last year’s incident was a doozy and I wasn’t going to let Cassie go to prison . So again back to the universe . Please don’t let me get arrested in a skirt in Memphis .

David Letterman’s last show was broadcast last night . He didn’t shed a tear but I cried the whole show. I remember being young and outraged when Dave wasn’t given the hosting job after Johnny Carson stepped down . I remember cringing when Crispin Glover was a guest and he was so drugged up. Crispin actually started kicking the air toward Dave. Dave walked off the show . Definitely that feeling of  watching  an accident happen . So many laughs . So many years . Good for him . I hope his new life is wonderful in whatever he does or just becoming Mr. Mom to his son. After so many years of craziness maybe some quiet is what he wants . Or not . Good Luck.

yesterday I helped at the San Diego bar. Leah asked me to help her get started on the far terminal .Exactly what I was worried about . No idea how to do this after several missed attempts . I called Chantel who has trained and been certified on Aloha systems . Literally it was Dumb and Dumber. ” ok Lil go on this screen. Shit that didn’t work ?. Ok try this “. Ten minutes it took us to figure this out. ” Leah go warm up some sake at Samurai Pie because after I figure this out I will need one”.



Yesterday was a very sad day for our Coyote Ugly Family. Esther succumbed to her battle with cancer. She started at the Austin bar. Quickly became a trainer for us. She traveled all over the country helping us open bars. Beautiful on the inside and out. So young. Life isn’t always fair. So so sad. My gratitude today goes out to all the Austin staff and outside friends who stayed with Esther through the hard times and the incredible times. Thank You. Esther Rest in Peace.

The lovely bud, so young, so fair
Called off by earthly doom,
Just came to show how sweet a flower
In paradise could bloom

Cooking classes! As we expand the need for food at our locations is becoming more and more essential. Kevin called this week and said that we really need to  take cooking classes so we can expand our menus with knowledge. Bam I am about to book Kevin, myself. and Daniel at a cooking school in Spain and one in France. I am super excited about this! A cooking vacation. Excellent.

Meeting some possible licensees from South Africa today. That would be a great trip.

“Please will someone switch with me? Lil is the manager on duty Wednesday.” LMAO.  I told Dinesti I would give her a few hours off . She penciled my name on the manager’s schedule which is posted in the office.  I laughed my ass off when Dinesti  told me that the day girl was desperately trying to switch shifts knowing I was coming in.  Hysterical. I am not quite as scary as they think I am. I waitressed. I bused tables. And Aleah and I worked on her singing and dancing. Not bad at all.

“Lil your underwater pictures sucked you need to redo them.” So another day under water. But I like the fun colorful gowns. Cold today.


Happy Mother’s day. Bars have done god awful this weekend. I get two days a year where my son completely complies to my wishes. Today was one of them. Horseback riding on the beach . So beautiful.IMG_4989 We saw a baby seal on our ride.

Oklahoma got hit hard this week by tornados. The Coyote in OKC is putting together a charity event. There is something that scares me with tornedos. A hurricane gives you a lot of notice. Sometimes upwards of 5 days. but there is virtually no notice for a tornado.

Today the SD staff is doing a fun Wipeout run. I was supposed to go but I have been up since 4 vomitting. I made 2 packets of miracle noodles for myself. Miracle Noodles are made from Water, glucomannan (soluble fiber), and calcium. Zero calories. I feel awful.

” Miss Lovell, we found the problem with your convertible.  A rat ate through the power steering line. And see these marks; that we are  assuming is your dog going after the rat.” You are fucking kidding me. That’s a brand new car.

Had my Dos Equis for Cinco de Mayo down at the SD bar yesterday. The girls in SD have been taking boxing classes. 2 of the girls have entered the Industry Night fights at the end of January. So exciting. Plus their bodies are SICK hot!!! I love that

What is the world coming to when I am looking at women’s waders for purchase. Kevin and I went to Park City for fly fishing. I caught 4 fish ( and released them). I loved it!!! Super relaxing.

Tomorrow Cinco de Mayo. Let’s make some bets. Which bar will do best. San Antonio? NYC? San Diego? hmmm. I think I may need to go out and drink some Dos Equis at the SD bar tomorrow.
