But none of this is to the point! Here is another stab at it:
This coming Wednesday, I'm giving blood at 6:30 pm, and my usual procedure after giving blood is to treat myself to a meal somewhere, trying to avoid a meal that will make me feel completely horrible the next day. In this case, I'm thinking of going to Tazza, which has some decent sandwiches these days and which also has a pretty decent open mike on Wednesdays (with no cover). I should get there pretty early, which means that I should be able to get a slot to my liking, which hopefully means the first slot. (The open mike starts around 20 of or quarter to 9 pm.)
Which brings me to the actual offer:
I will buy a drink for anyone who is willing to go to an open mike to see me play. (To hold up my end of the bargain, I will try my best to get an early slot.) My basic feeling is: it is the least I can do.
So if anyone wants to come to Tazza on Wednesday (there's no cover but I think there was a $5 minimum last week, although hopefully I would be paying for most of that for you) then please do! If desired, you can comment here and I will call you as soon as I find out when I'll be playing, so you can make a more rational decision.
