Well, hello there! Thanks for coming on such short notice. We were lucky to get reservations at this place. Luckily I know Neil, the manager. I helped him out with a little problem he had with a waitress some time ago. Here, I brought you a rose, in case you came without one. But let's talk about you. I'm here to listen. Tell me everything... don't hold back. No, you won't shock me. Believe me, I've heard it all. Why, just last week my dear friend Cecilia... well, she told me some things that would make a Storyville madam blush. I'm amazed she could find one other person into that sort of thing, let alone five. You know, the service in this place has really gone downhill lately. What does a girl have to do to get her water glass filled around here? Anyway, where were we? Oh yes, your delicate little problem. Don't worry, your secret is safe with me. I'm a listener, not a talker. I wouldn't dream of breaching your confidence. Why, I had a friend named Melissa who had a situation far worse than yours. It seems she had a one-legged pool boy, and... I swear, our waiter must be on a break. Where's Neil? He's going to hear about this. So please, continue. Remember, you can tell me anything. I'm here for you. Tell me what's on your mind, and how I can help. Waiter? Waiter!! See more truly awful album covers at www.bizarrerecords.com.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
