DUKE / Duchess Shoppe
Yesterday I donned chauffeur cap—taking a fella in town for Music Now Festival down to Cincinnati.
Worried what we might talk about for an hour in transit, my fears abated on instant when I asked if he lived in Brooklyn. He was from New York and all… A gasp and resounding no, he said “Everyone in Brooklyn has projects.”
Which from what I know, is absolutely true.
I like spicy conversation though, and this fit the bill.
When we pulled into the Duke gas station, he noted the sign, “Velvet Cone? I think that’s a lesbian bar in Lexington. (insert beat) I’ve been there.”
