Last weekend, I was at a daytime event at the Eagle (formerly The Gauntlet II). As the night wore on, the regulars started showing up - the leatherboys. Someone asked, "Why is there so much security in here?" I overheard one of these guys saying, "So I went in there to buy my Dr. Pepper, like I always do, because that's where I get my Dr. Pepper, but this time I'm wearing my SWAT uniform, you know, and the guy asks me, are you a policeman or something, and I said, no..."

So of course I had to go over and make friends with them.
