An opportunity for us to connect on stage with our friends—who we are fortunate enough to have some of the top musicians around today—and play the music we want to play and experiment with and hopefully really connect with the crowd.”Tickets to J.E.D.I at One Eyed Jacks are on sale NOW at this link.

Cops calling ‘time’ over CBD drinkers

first_imgNZ Herald 23 Sept 2013A group of the country’s most senior police officers have attacked plans to allow city bars to stay open three hours later than pubs in the suburbs, warning people will hop in their cars and head for the bright lights after drinking at their local.They say it will result in greater drunken disorder, violence and road crashes, but a council discussion paper dismissed their suggestions for changing a booze-swilling culture as unjustified.A deputation of Acting Assistant Commissioner Bill Searle, Auckland City District Commander Mike Clement and prevention manager Inspector Gary Davey met the council before it considered recommendations from the council’s community safety committee.Led by councillor George Wood, a former police manager, the forum proposed a closing time of 3am for bars in the CBD with a one-way door policy starting at 2am for both CBD and city fringe areas such as Ponsonby, Parnell, Takapuna, New Lynn, Albany and Manukau.Maximum trading hours in the suburbs could be 8am to 1am.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11128563last_img read more

Awful pick-up lines that actually worked

first_img 94 Views   no discussions Tweet Share Share LifestyleRelationships Awful pick-up lines that actually worked by: – April 17, 2012center_img Share Sharing is caring! They’re the worst pick-up lines… and yet, these seemingly awful come-ons actually managed to charm women. It just goes to show you, romance is always full of surprises. Read on and pick up an idea or two, guys.1. The corny-but-cute hello: “This guy who was so not my style came over to me and my friends and asked: ‘Do you happen to know how much a polar bear weighs?’ We said ‘no’ and kept walking, and then he said, ‘Well, it’s enough to break the ice. Hi, I’m Brian.’ We all cracked up and kept talking to him.” — Charity, 29, Cincinnati, OH 2. The line with artistic flair: “I was shooting pool with friends, and some guys offered us a friendly challenge. Midway through the game, one of them looked at me and said, ‘Do you remember Crayola crayons? Well, they used to have this color called Blizzard Blue. It was my favorite color, and your eyes are actually Blizzard Blue.’ I thought it was so cute! He had me right there.”— Erica, 21, Brunswick, OH 3. The overly confident come-on: “I was at an office party when a guest of a coworker introduced himself and said, ‘Blueberries or strawberries?’ Confused, I asked what he meant, and he replied, ‘I just want to know what kind of pancakes to make you in the morning.’ He said it with such a straight face that it was like a scene in a funny movie. I didn’t eat breakfast with him, but I did give him my number.”— Jan, 33, Cleveland, OH 4. The nonsensical approach: “This random guy came up to me at a party, looked me straight in the eyes and said, ‘Baby, you’re sexier than socks on a rooster.’ I had absolutely no idea what he meant, but I thought it was funny and I liked how unusual it was. It got us talking, trying to figure out what that line meant!”— Holly, 19, Milford, OH 5. The mom-approved intro: “I was at a local bar one night, and this guy sat next to me and said, ‘Would it freak you out if I said that I’ve already told my mother about you?’ I said, ‘No, why?’ Then he told me that he’d actually stepped outside, called his mother and asked her how to approach me. I thought it was adorable that he was a mama’s boy.”— Michelle, 25, Erie, PA 6. The “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” method: “I fought tooth and nail with a guy over a parking space and won. When I came back out to my car, there was a note on it that said, ‘I like your style. Call me.’ It was very unexpected, and I loved the approach. See, it pays to be a lover and a fighter.”— Lynn, 36, Boston, MA 7. The win-her-with-flattery strategy: “This poker party I was at started to get very crowded. As a group of girls walked in, this guy came up behind me and said, ‘I think you’re going to be asked to leave soon. You’re so pretty, you’re putting all the other women to shame.’ I tend to be very shy, so his compliment really helped crack my shell.”— Katie, 31, Chicago, IL By Matt ChristensenYAHOO Dating Tips and Advicelast_img read more
