Friends how many of us have them?

 

It’s that day the group decides to get together and hit up a show or a festival. You all have made plans for a few weeks and the posse is back to make some memories happen. Deep inside you know that this is gonna be one of those nights of partying that you all will be talking about because you all came ready to party. 

I get these kinds of group outings all the time coming to coat check, I think it’s great. You can’t have enough good times with your crew.

Here’s where it gets interesting, you got the core group and along the way new folks get added by date, new girlfriend/boyfriend status,  co-worker , friend of a friend, blind date etc. So the entire group has grown in size and you don’t know how these new people hang in terms of letting lose. 

So the night goes on and you are well on your way after a few drinks through the first 5 songs in the concert, everyone is feeling great. Then someone busts out the pills, and or a strong ass blunt and the combination of the whole party package sets all you all in a great party time atmosphere and then…

Cue THE HOT MESS… you have one person in this group going down. It’s so loud that the MAYDAY call is not being heard by the group because people are partying and scattered throughout the concert. And you happen to know that it’s someone newer to the group, you don’t really know. T he million dollar question is DO YOU CLAIM THEM?

All kinds of decision-making skills are required and you’re having fun and loaded.

DAMN GINA what to do?! 

Of course, the expectation is to help… or do you send them to the school of LIVE and LEARN the school of hard knox, that’s life?

Claim your friend? or Not. That is the double barrel loaded party question of the night.

 _________________________________________________________________

I actually had this happen the about a week ago, in a group of 4 people going out. Luckily, the girl needing assistance had a strong backup because THEY CLAIMED her. Her friend was partying but was able to somehow get her coat check ticket and get her coat for her, and the whole group ended up leaving the show right about hitting the middle set. 

It was a group decision but none the less they all made the ‘E’ for effort to help their friend.

The not so cool version/ bad date version – The entire group comes drops off their stuff…the person is so trashed  but still able to barely, the entire group is doing their own thing and the person that is closest to the fucked up person gets the person’s belongings and says I’ll be right back I’m gonna get this person out and put them in a cab and I’ll be back for the rest of the show. ( true story it was a first or second date and he sent her off wishing her well.)  So this was a partial claim but a diss in the same way. Actually, she was lucky that she got the cab service to take her. 

_________________________________________________________________

There is no true right answer. It boils down to the group, and an individual’s basic moral principles. The group will always have some like minded streams of thoughts and actions. But at the end of the night, it’s also YOUR common sense. 

It’s times like these that I am reminded of my friends and the crazy party times we have all had. You will at some point be in the company of a group, a few , or just one person, or alone. 

Advice: Claim yourself.. (know how you party; if you’re new to the group figure out how they party and go from there.) 

If your alone have your shit straight before you go crazy especially if you’re traveling to some other country where the language is different… that is another level of partying.

Give Karma back if Karma is kind to you… if someone has claimed you,  claim someone else too when you can… you can never have too many “GOOD” party points.

_________________________________________________________________

It’s April and the festivals are about to take off! There are so many cool events and shows about to pop, bust out that calendar and get your money and go! Life it way too short not to.

Swiping Right or Left

mobiledateapp

This blog entry is  dedicated to those on the hunt for the right app, and to those who ultimately are on the quest to find troo luv…(elmer fud voice)

You have Tinder, Ginder, Grouper, How About We, Plenty of Fish, Christian Mingle… the list is growing everyday more apps! more apps! 

YIKES! And that is just me googling dating apps I am sure that the rabbit hole of dating apps gets hella freaky to each (his/her) own.

And by now you are wondering what is a coat check blog have to do with a dating app? 

Ahh Haa! My friends, the awesome people that read my blog this is the juicy stuff you all become flys on the wall for. 

Let me start from the beginning because technically this was a seedling of a thought that bloomed over 6 months.

So 6 months ago, I had a couple come to the coat check,  they normally checked their coats. I took their coats and presented them with two tickets which is totally the deal because we rock the coat check per item. The show is full swing there were 3 bands that night, the lady comes back at the end of the second band, and obviously she had a couple of drinks in her enough to spill the beans.

Me: Picking up early?

Lady: I am so glad that you gave us two tickets

Lady: I just need my coat

Me: No problem

Lady: Have you ever done Tinder?

Me: No, but I have an idea of what it is

Lady: Well, this was my first time on it and I will NEVER do it again

Me: Oh no!

Lady: This guy buys me a couple of drinks and starts pawing me and wants to leave early to go back to his house

Me: Oh damn, so sorry about that but you are making the executive decision and good for you

Lady: I am just glad that you didn’t give us one ticket because I don’t want to see his face again, at all he’s a douche bag

Me: I get you

Lady: (Marches off upset)

Me: WHOA! what just happened?! I need to put this in my blog…

_________________________________________________________________

Man: Gives me the ticket

Me: I give him the jacket and (the look) I know everything…

And, that is how a coat checker becomes the all-knowing entity. I know what happened on this digital blind date gone bad! 

I often wonder besides the lady going back to discussing what a shitty date she had with her girls, I wonder if the dating apps of the world know the odd social waves that are surfacing, recreating/reemphasizing social cues.

Obviously, it’s nothing new. Blind dates have been around for a long time. We have heard about successful/ unsuccessful  dates from friends, strangers, people talking loudly in public about their own experiences. Blind dates have evolved you can thank the Internet! You put that digital twist of swiping right or left, and it becomes that Choose your own adventure book. (remember those from the 80’s) it’s part of dating and gages your own personal dos, don’ts and never agains. It adds to your own personal arsenal of self. 

About a month ago, I was talking to a cab driver taking me home from work and we got talking about apps, and I joked about the swiping dating apps because I had dealt with another blind date scenario at work. And, this is what he had to say being a cab driver. People are so into their phones and apps, that they don’t have to leave the house to meet people. Back in the day, you’d go out by yourself or with friends drop $50-$100 bucks, interact face to face with people and take it from there. Now, you just swipe based on a profile.  It’s has streamlined everything for people, and some of the realness of just meeting people genuinely has been altered. He shared that he uses the apps, nothing really bad to say, except that if these were around 20 years ago that he would have saved a lot of money. Ha Ha Ha! Interesting perspective.

This is me doing a good deed to those out there who are not too schooled, and have no older friends to refer to for social cues

What I am witnessing is an across the board interaction of novice app users to people who have been at it for awhile. And, there are some social cues one may want to earmark if you are going to participate in digital dating. 

-Go out somewhere social – Given everyone knows this

-Look nice but don’t wear your coveted name brand clothes save that for another date – you might not come back with your Prada jacket – speaking of a good or bad date

-Pay your own way – If your date has no money and keeps giving your that blank look or inferring silently to take the tab – heads up

-Be true to yourself, ask yourself before drinking and during drinking or whatever – Am I having a good time? 

-And make sure you have an app on your phone for a ride – because If you are using a dating app you’d obviously have a get a ride app

-If you are checking in your coat – GET SEPARATE TICKETS – you never know

Coat checkers are the eyes and ears of nightlife, we witness the little and big social interactions from the time you arrive until the time you leave

Fast forward to last night

I had a girl come to coat check with two jackets, I gave her two tickets and asked her if she would like them hung separately she replied, “together is fine on the same hanger.” She had this puzzling look, I said you never know, I get people all the time on blind dates and sometimes they don’t turn out so good. She started to laugh, and she said, “I never thought of it like that.” She came back at the end of the night smiling saying “ we are still together after two hours.” 

 I know that big holiday with a heart is coming up… YOUR WELCOME!

Until next time,

All I got is a Twomp

20dol21

All I have is a a twomp/ a $20… 

All I have is a $20, This has been the phrase I have been hearing all week in the coat check. 

And it’s always delivered in the same tone followed by some huge inferred thought.. of possibly a free coat check. And then here is my response popping that thought bubble… I am totally okay with $20s, and I am okay with coins, I will take any United States currency that is legitimate and in circulation. Money is money, even when you scrape the bottom of your purse and wallet for those titbits of coin.

It leads me to think that the patron has been reprimanded in some way for paying with a $20, and by uttering this monotone statement is waiting for some sassy coat check comment. By stating the obvious..$20  they might get some type of hook up, and kudos if you do get hooked up, also a nice gesture of gratitude i.e. tips are always in fashion. 

Oh, nightlife people.. how the four letter words free/comp/list/vips do a number on your brain and start firing off all kinds of excitement. Here is the reality, if you go out to the same spots enough you most likely will get to know folks that are working, and maybe you’ll get the hookup. But the big advice here is don’t get used to it like it’s going to happen every single time you decide to go out. If you do get the hook up, do the return favor and tip graciously. Always be prepared to pay for the service, that way you hold on to your street cred. 

And for the coat checkers that read people the rights having to break a $20, get off your ass and get your manager to get you more change. GEEZ, it is really that simple. The people coming up to the coat check have all kinds of things going on, but paying with a $20 bill shouldn’t make you want to throw yourself off of a cliff because you had to give away your change pile. Think back.. way back to your Brownie and Girl Scout Days

” Always be Prepared.”

Winter Wear and Shows

cropped-aimee1-copy.jpg

Hello,

I am back and it feels right.. because it’s the weather has changed and so another seasonal blog about The Coat Check. I have been busy working at shows, going back East, going to sporting events. And I am ready to entertain you with stories from the coat check.

Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and all the other colors matched with days upon us. The retail industry have their starter guns in the air and are doing the ready, set go! The soft starts are already happening…and trust me things out in retail land are pretty enticing already.

So what are you going to buy? In person or online.. what is on your target list. 

Well now would be the best time to get that warm winter coat or sub layer going on. Living in N. California thank God for El Nino… we are getting some rain and snow, and the ski places that have suffered for a bit are finally open for the season. 

So let me tell you what has been coming into the coat check… Styles of coats.

Leather Jackets 

Classic fitted leather Jackets for men and women, mostly black with the occasional colored leather. The Brand that is hot to trot and is really stylish right now is the OBEY PROPAGANDA brand. If your stylish, young, urban, and about quality, dropping some coin on this brand is gonna make you feel like a rockstar. The brand has Men’s and Women’s stuff but no plus size stuff so boo hoo on that. Come On Shepard hook us up.!

Levis Trucker Jackets

Classic Denim; Classic Cut comes in various shades. I prefer the black and dark indigo. Also, buy this jacket off the internet and Ebate that shit! it’s worth it. (you gotta work it)  What I love about this jacket is the customization you can do anything to this jacket and you will look cool. You can put patches on it, cut the sleeves off, dye it. Go Levis! I am pleased to say that they have a plus size presence online. I was impressed by this since before there was not going past a size 14. Now there is a section. It’s not a big section but it’s there, I have seen it only for women, have to check if they have Plus size men. 

The Puffy Jacket

Just roll it up and shove it in your backpack to avoid paying double at coat check. For this puffer/insulator jacket I give it a 10 for for warmth and utility and how light weight this is. Made popular by Patagonia, Any Mountain, North Face and now it seems like there are more companies with their own versions. And colors wise it’s pretty diverse. And if you are on the hunt for one in a bigger size they are out there. 

The Peacoat 

Oh the Peacoat, you are a good wool staple friend. It seems like everyone has you as a staple in the store if they sell jackets. Lots of colors and lots of cuts. Many sizes. 

The Oversized Sweater 

It’s like an oversized long sweater, or a poncho thang, with some type of Santa fe /Triangle/ hipster pattern. You can find these anywhere Forever 21, H& M type of stores. I don’t know about the heat quality but for going out on a fall day and looking cool you will be set. Oh don’t forget that oversized hat and sunglasses to complete the look. Also, since I did mention the f21 & HM they may have plus size. Also, check out Torrid, Lane Bryant, Sears, JCPennys for more size options. 

The Military Jacket 

Ahhh this classic jacket style does not go out of style either. You can get the real thing at your local army surplus store. Customizable just like the Levi’s trucker jacket, and durable. It’s up to your style but most of the time you may have to wear a sweater or thermal underneath. It’s class and you look cool. 

Lastly, I would like to recognize the fashion world for recognizing the Plus Sized fashion community. The fashion world is moving into real sized fashion and everybody wins.

That is my coat report….

Now let’s talk about music….

I have worked a lot of shows as of late some good, some not so good. 

Who to look out for highly recommended holiday concert action (in no particular order)

Leon Bridges 

Andra Day

Borns

Erykah Badu

Missy Elliot

Elle King

X

Faith No More

Metallica

Bad Cop/ Bad Cop

Mad Mamma and The Bona fide Few

I have also worked the EDM shows for the most part they are very visual the music is pumping and so are all the party favors. Expect to see lot of bad lingerie, and young adults who look like teenagers, and then the solo creepy older guy with a camera. The ticket price is gonna set you back between $35-$100 bux. This crowd will arrive in an Uber or Lyft and be really messed up. Plus points: the major commercial parties don’t go all night. Whew! And note: I used to go to Raves back in the day so don’t get huffy. Karma is funny now I work them.

Don’t forget to be communicative with each other and your coat checker, and if they did a good job do tip, especially if the coat checker charges your phone. Also, if you know you are partying take a photo of your ticket to avoid being upset at the end when you have lost all your stuff.

A Night In the Coat Check

Check out the latest video featuring MOI, going to work. It’s been an awesome week as well, one of the best weeks to go to shows.

This past week I saw Helmet, Dwight Yoakam, The Main Event featuring Nelly, TLC, and New Kids on the Block, and Ministry. The weather has been getting good so coat check has lightened up a bit, more backpacks than normal. What is also nice to see are the older bands that I grew up with going back out on tour, so I am on a concert kick to see some of the legendary bands that I have never seen before. I got my tickets already for Culture Club and AC/DC, and going to Outside Lands to go see Sir Elton John, headlining.

And for the first time ever going to check out the infamous Las Vegas weekend of Punk Rock Bowl.

YAY! Summer Fun has begun!

Good times at a Reggae show

thewailers

Bob Marley would have been 70 years old, this past Feb. 6. And yes, people the celebrations, new articles, music, limited edition and never released music and photos to be had. His music and lyrics, ideals, and way of life have influenced the world in many ways. His band The Wailers, and members of his family are still playing shows. And as luck would have it, they are playing for 3 days in a row at the spot that I work at. Last night’s show was just a good time. Sold out of course but there was a mixed crowd of people who were ready to listen, dance, and smoke to 2 hours of live Bob Marley and The Wailers. The only original member who toured with Bob was there (the bass player) the rest of the people were fill in, but the music was why everyone was there. It’s timeless.

Back in the day when I was a teenager, partying with my friends until the sun came up, whenever there was rain, We’d always say “don’t worry Bob will make it better.” (referring to Bob Marley) and maybe we were trippin’ too hard, but when anyone  said this, the weather that would clear up. It did truly happen on multiple occasions and even when when were sober too. It’s funny the things you remember from your past especially what you tie in with listening to Bob Marley and The Wailers.

Back in the coat check..

A sweet 74 year old man, with a strong accent started telling me that he had only been to 2 concerts in his life. Jimmy Hendrix, and Death Cab for Cutie (which he didn’t care for) and now a Wailers show can be added to his concert list, this gentleman was so excited to be at the show, he told us he had just found out about it 2 hours before. He was unaware that the show was sold out, and you know that is a double edged sword. But no matter the man showed up and got in. It made my night to hear his story, this is the kind of interaction I love especially when it’s heartfelt. I chalk one up to the power of Bob.. ha ha

Bob  Marley in 2015 would have ICON status like Paul McCartney, Prince, Cher, Neil Young, Madonna. After the show I thought to myself , What  if Bob Marley was still alive would he have played the club I worked at? I would like to think so, but that would have been some secret show stuff. Hey it’s totally possible Garth Brooks just did a pop by last month.

So if you love Reggae Music, you love music, you love dancing, and singing along to your Bob Marley tunes.. Go see The Wailers you will not be disappointed; sharing is caring.

Until Next time,

Coat Check Basic Rules
Tip on a good job; don’t be cheap

If you don’t have a claim number or a copy then you are fucked, and have to wait until the end of the line; if you do get the hook up from a coat checker then tip

Don’t steal from the tip jar

Never stick your hand in the tip jar always let your coat checker give you change

It’s about 3:30PM, in CA. We are headed into the new year.. be smart about how you party, and make sure you hide a secret $20 bill somewhere just incase you need to catch a ride home.  HAPPY NEW YEAR! Gung Hay Fat Choy!

$2 for Peace of Mind

For as long as I have done coat check, it’s not only the coats that get checked in. People will bring other things to the coat check just to be hands free.
Hence, this weeks blog of bags, and boards.
Bags are the #2 mostly checked item. The first question I get from a person who wants to check in a bag is. “Do you take bags/purses?” The answer to that is YES!
If it’s tag able, it’s checkable!  I have seen it all from the mini sized bag to an enormous camper’s backpack., and everything in between.
There are plus points to checking in your bag. First off, the cost is the same of checking coat. This gives the patron a place to put their top layer if it fits in the bag. A lot of people do this, that way you are only paying for signal coat check ticket. ( Remember) to take everything that you will need! This is because if you show up to the window and ask for your bag again because you forgot your lipgloss or credit card, you will have to recheck your item.
Now, I get it your probably not digging the idea of a repull, but there is a method to this madness. When a show is busy and/or sold out, you can only imagine that the coat check will absorb. Out of 600 patrons at a show, out of those 600 I will check between 80-200 coats/bags or more. And when a patron comes, and wants one or a few items from their bag, the coat checker must retrieve the bag and issue back to the customer.
A few factors come into play here:  
#1 By the time you find what you are looking for, the coat checker is already on another claim number to be issued in the proper numerical sequence. It may not be hitting home from the customer’s point of view but, consecutive numerical order is important to the coat checker because everything needs to be in a numerical sequence that is how we find your items.
By doing a repull, the order of how we have coats hung and put away gets altered and this can really effect the big line at the end for pickup. Especially, if there is a large attendance number.
#2 Is there a line behind this customer who just wants lone thing? If there is a line, the coat checker has to keep it moving and cannot wait for you to dig through your purse with 20 people standing behind you. Really~
#3 Lastly, asking for a repull to put more items in your bag because your friend got there late, will be considered an automatic repull. I have run into this on occasion. And it’s usually,  patrons who don’t usually use coat check and don’t know what the rules, or are doing this on purpose, because they are cheap ,and trying to be coy to the coat check signs that post the cost. Note: To the people who do this… As a coat checker I am right in front of you,  and I see what you are doing, you want to avoid paying again. Duh! I wasn’t born yesterday. These special people automatically crown themselves as douches, and trust me it’s a guaranteed repull fee.

Boards.. Skate boards that is.. Short, Long, Retro. It’s a common club policy to be escorted by club security to the coat check because skateboards are not allowed on the floor or in the main areas when a show is happening.
-it’s dark and sometimes you can’t really see the floor
-someone who is drunk may try to ride the skateboard and that is a big accident
-if there is a bar fight, you don’t want a skateboard lying around because it can be used to inflict injury
-if you leave it in the corner unattended someone could steal it, and that would suck

Do yourself the biggest favor just pay the nominal $2 and have peace of mind for the entire night.
Coat checks are different all over and have different rules, just talk to your coat check person upfront and ask about repulls, and what their policy is on repulls. They may be cool enough to do it once for you but don’t assume you can keep showing up multiple times during the night to reapply your lipstick.
And with all these requests, leave tips it shows gratuity and that you actually know your coat check P’s and Q’s.

Until Next Time,
