038: IN SEARCH OF A COMFORTABLE CHAIR

I had the most perfect Sunday night.

I spent it at the Comfy Chair. It's a bar/lounge/place filled with nana-couches that me and my mates have fast become regulars of.

It's been one of my objectives this year to find a new hang out. My last place of regular drunkenness, Bar Nothing, was quickly taken over by men in stripey shirts who danced with other men back in 2003.

Having lost it's 'secret' appeal, Bar Nothing was quickly dropped. What followed afterwards was a pointless abyss of random bars and pubs, some of which almost cut the mustard. 303 in Northcote came a very close second in the search for a new hang out.

But Comfy Chair, with it's sexy ambience and pseudo-alternative clientele really impressed me a few months ago when I first walked through it's veritable sea of old couches.

So back to last night…

Me and Primus Nick*, both in a fairly mellow mood, decided to spend our evening there. Leisurely consuming all manner of coffee and tea. Making small talk with Moderately Attractive Barman and Very Attractive Bar Lady (called Ana). Still quite shaken from my Ikea experience last week, this was the perfect way for me to unwind.

Seeing as we're regular's I ended up booking the whole place out for my birthday next year in January. To my surprise it's relatively cheap, and the owner (Uncle Mike) gave us both key chains denoting our VIP status as barflies. I sorta feel like a wealthy foreign investor.

So we ended out our night knee deep in profound conversation, sprawled over two very comfortable couches near an over indulgent, glowing gas heater. All we needed were a pair of blankets and we could have drifted off to sleep.

Of course after I dropped Nick off, my night concluded with some rockin new porn.

It's nice to have a place in which I can do nothing. I don’t really need an excuse to be there. Be it coffee, piss up, catch up or comedy night. I can sit there and read the paper, read a book, smoke a smoke or just enjoy the woollen goodness of the largest collection of old couches I've seen in my brief little life.






the end.



*There are many Nicks in the story of my life, so I feel the need to attach a prefix to each one of their names to differentiate between them, the following Nicks may be referenced in future blogs.

AN IDIOT'S GUIDE TO NICK

Trip (aka: Primus Nick) - Spikey haired music fan. Noisy and festive. Likes his women. I used to work at Primus with this dude, yet I've dubbed him Trip cause they're the only four letters in his last name that I can pronounce.

Angry Nick - One of my best mates in and of work, Angry Nick likes his hardcore music and events. He also wears very distracting tight jeans. He has a legion of gay men after him.

Dirty Nick - Not really dirty. Used to go to school with this jolly fellow. He has a mortgage and works with retarded people. Don’t see him too often, but the boy likes to drink.

Cleavage Nick - Was renamed from Clean Nick after he developed big wussy man-boobs. I broke his nose a few years back outside Greater Union Cinema after he had unprotected sex with a close friend of mine. He cried.

No Shirt Nick - Many have speculated on the very existence of this dashing young man. Suffice it so say, he's a Uni student who never wears a shirt.
