RUDYARD'S PINEAPPLE LIFESAVER

Troy Fields

Walking up to Rudyard's (2010 Waugh, 713-521-0521) on a recent weeknight, I felt ready for the day's second date with futility. The first rendezvous had gone down that afternoon; it included driving around Montrose fruitlessly searching for whoever went into my backyard the night before and swiped my lady friend's bike. (Assuming the thief was a man, I've got a message for him: Hope you like riding a girls' bike, shithead.) Round two was to come in the form of a couple rounds of darts with friends. We athletes — fun fact: Darts is actually considered a sport in certain parts of the world — decided a shot might improve our accuracy. I asked bartender Stacy to conjure up something special; she deferred to co-worker Ann's recipe for a Pineapple Lifesaver. I didn't take it as a good sign that Stacy smelled the shaker skeptically before dispensing the cloudy yellow liquid into shot glasses, but it actually tasted like pineapple candy. The dart games weren't as smooth, although I did repeatedly show the backboard who's boss. Frustration mounting, I quit in favor of having a seat in Rudz's bunker-like back room and plotting a sting operation to nab a bike thief or two.
