Well, tonite at 8pm there was a rally outside of Ray's put together by slacktivist John Penley and Black Ops Bob. People stood across from Ray's with signs and candles and chanted at people to buy stuff to help Ray. I wasn't sure if this would scare people away and hinder business, but business was really good for Ray and Ray was very happy about all the support and love shown. It was fun..There were students there filming for a project about Ray, the editor of The Villager, Lincoln Anderson was there..some little kids, some neighborhood characters, and some loyal fans of Ray's. I took these pics and tried not to yell "honk if you're horny!" at passing cars..Wasn't that popular in the mid-80's to yell at cars?
Anyway, I left to go see The Enablers and when I came back at midnight everyone was dispersed..But I think it went over well and Ray made some extra and much needed money from it..
Monday is Rays' birthday and last year someone got him a stripper who danced on the counter..I bought two cakes and there was kinda a party..Not sure what's going on this year. Things have been a bit nuts..I'm going to a comedy show that Lewis Black is headlining at to help raise money for Haiti at 8pm..But I will definitely swing by Ray's to give him a birthday hug..Maybe I can catch both the stripper AND the comedy!
