But there is a 25-cent cover charge

A woman walks into Sophie's early one recent evening. She sits down and orders a drink. She pulls out her phone and calls a friend. "Do you want to come meet me? I'm in your neighborhood." But she doesn't know where she is exactly. She goes outside to find the name of the bar. "Sophie's" doesn't appear anywhere out front. The women studies all the signs in the window for a moment and comes back in.



She continues the conversation with her friend. "I'm at a place called Public Telephone."

you mean her iphone could not tell her where she is -- she probably didn't have an app to see for that

OK, that's pretty adorable.

Does anyone else ever get Sophie's and Joe's confused in their head or is it just me?

Lisa said...

At least she didn't say she was at the Pabst Blue Ribbon bar.

At Erin: Talk about confusing. You can always spot the frat boys walking into Sophie's who suddenly realize that they made a mistake. Someone asks, "Is this the Ace Bar?"

Oh, the stupidity!
