Brillig Beijing: Baby in a Bar

Yep, we took Louisette to her first bar today. Here she is (and that’s her grandma – Bil and CJs mum – in the background):

And here’s me, five seconds ago:

I’m writing this blog on Sunday night, which is open mike night at Lush bar in Wudaoko. It’s my favourite bar in the world, because Bil and Rich (one of the owners, who co-hosts open mike nights with Bil) sing and play guitar in order to encourage others to do the same (a huge treat for me), and somehow the level of talent seems abnormally high. I always get really emotional – the guitars, the hookahs, the green walls, the sense of community – it all makes me get teary-eyed. Or maybe it’s because I always have a chocolate martini (when I was pregnant, I promised myself I’d come to Lush and have another – and I keep my promises).

  1. That’s totally cute, haha I hope Louisette had as good of a time as you did ๐Ÿ™‚ Chocolate martini sounds AMAZING! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Bonnee: We keep coming back to Lush, and she falls asleep every time. I don’t know if it’s the extreme volume or the hookah smoke. . . Hopefully if we never ever take her to a bar again she’ll be okay :/

  2. That third-from-last photo is really good! Very flattering.

    Good to see you have the good parenting thing going with acclimatising Louisette to appropriate consumption of alcohol. ๐Ÿ˜‰
