1:01 pm - Yesterday at Dos

Met up with a friend at Tempe Dos yesterday. It was a beautiful spring Saturday afternoon in the desert. Blue skies with spots of clouds and plenty of beer to be had. Sat down at the center bar, split a six pack of yummy chicken tacos and listened to the local one-man band play a variety of sing along cover songs. When we screamed out "DEAD OR ALIVE", he obliged us with the 80s classic.

Oh, and of course, plenty of hot females. Thank God for warm weather.

Hmm ... I may just have to go back there again today. What the heck am I doing here sitting at home when I could be at Dos? LOL.

8:32 am - the end is here.

i can't believe it. at first i thought it was rumor. i would have checked it myself but i am in seattle, and that is a long way to fly to buy a beer....

coronas in tempe are $3.

i'm not making this up, I swear. I had several friends go for me last night.

$3. this sucks.


p.s. daisy dukes on university is now open, a new member of the DG family.

1:32 pm - did anyone else know about this?

College Hangout 101

Create your own restaurant!  Dos Gringos and Family of Casual Restaurants has acquired the space directly across from ASU (known as Flip Flops).  We would like to include you in the creative process of developing the new restaurant.  If your idea is chosen you will get to name the bar, menu items, and even get your mural painted on the wall if you choose.  Send in all of your ideas and concepts to ideas@dosgringosaz.com. Along with your legacy lasting forever in Tempe you and as many people as you can invite will get to party all night with free food and drinks.  Still not satisfied?  How does a 7-day Mexican cruise for two sound? 

Don't wait too long, ideas must be submitted by Friday, February 18, 2005.

11:30 am - 3,000,000 Coronas!

That's right, boys and girls, time to shake up this dead community. I'd like to announce the following....



That's a 3 with six zeros.

Anyway, keep your eyes peeled, we'll be celebrating in the typical fashion, a lot of drinking, a lot of prizes, and a giveaway or promotion or two. I'll update here later, for right now, the date is a "surprise" for the general public, but it's towards the middle of the month.

1:24 pm - jonesing for dos

Last night I went to the West Valley's "Rocky Point style" bar, Wet Willy's. I don't find it the least bit Mexico-esque. It's more a poor rip-off of San Felippe's. Neither establishment impresses me much. The only saving grace for Wet Willy's was the $1 and $2 u-call-its last night. If I closed my eyes & pretended I was outside, I could almost pretend I was sipping my Corona at Dos Gringos--not at some lameass copycat bar where a guy was beaten to death two months earlier. Someone needs to tell the owner of Dos Gringos to stop opening bars/restaurants in the East Valley and open up a Dos over here. Please, for my sake. If I can't go to the bar in decent company (or meet semi-entertaining people there), at least rally for my right to drink at a hip place.

10:40 pm - i miss dos gringos

It's been pretty quite at the LJ dosgringos, but I'm sure that's not the case at the real Dos Gringos. And with the new 2 a.m. last call, I'm willing to bet the next few weeks are going to be sheer craziness!

Has anyone been there lately? Planning to go?

I live on the west side of Phoenix now (damn graduating!), so I no longer live at Dos Gringos. These days a trip to Dos is a coordinated effort because I have to find a place to crash in Tempe/Scottsdale. However, that doesn't mean I'm not around! There isn't much that could keep me from that bar. (If you think I'm exaggerating about living there, ask my friends or the bartenders there. I'm not kidding.)

current mood: nostalgic

10:06 am - finals!

finals are over, and my goal for last night was to celebrate at dos. and celebrate i did. i think my roommate can attest to just how much fun i had last night - i think she was laughing at me when i walked in the door.

another awesome night at dos, where i saw half of tempe (or just a bunch of people i knew) on a monday.

oh, and shawn was in charge of food orders last night, and g kept calling him "a.c. slater". i love saved by the bell.

Who's gonna be there tonight?

1:57 am - ugh

Brian and I went to Dos tonight. It was his idea. I went with a backpack. Recommendation: do not take a backpack. It's not the old Dos and tehrefore everyone gives you a funny look.

It was all Brian's idea, I swear. I didn't get drawn in by the strobe lights.

Saw Mac the security guard. Among others. Brian recognized him (without the hat, no less) from the single pic I posted to this journal.

I only had two Coronas. Then, Brian and I stuck to our goal of only two beers. So.... we left.
We did, however, get much decision making done for the ASU Department of Leisure Studies.
Look for DOS101, DOS205, DOS394, and DOS401 to be listed as course offerings next fall.
Your TA and professors will be listed as soon as the department figures out who teaches what.
I will be teaching at least one course.

Back to the all-nighter of homework.

3:06 am - A good place to go for a 21st birthday?

Hey whats up? I have a friend who turns 21 tomorrow, well technically today...We are planning on exploiting the hell out of any sort of birthday specials around Mill and I just wanted to know if Dos does any sort of 'free shot' or 'free drink' for that special birthday person.

I just figured someone in this community might know, if not we will check it out tonight and I will let you all know if they do. :-P

1:46 pm - My full day of drinking at Dos Gringos was in the State Press!
ender007 I spent my entire day off on Cesar Chavez Day drinking at Dos Gringos with geektress, truetybu, semaphore_girl neferkiti, and others (inluding the columnist velvet_elvis). The column follows below, I have to say, I love the first two lines, hehe.


Chavez more than just a day off

12:18 pm - Effin' Hilarious!

I busted my cherry wide open and drank at the new Dos for the first time last night. Awesome setup. Parking sucks and the city will make thousands in weekly parking ticket revenue, but nonetheless, a fun time. Once that pool is filled, it will be the beginning of my demise.

The funniest part was when they announced "2 for 1 Donkey Punches" for the ladies. LMFAO! And most of the women there actually KNEW what that was. Geez, there are some sexually deviant women running around this town ... LOL!

12:54 pm - ladies and gentlemen..

may i present Mac, the hot security guy who must think i am stalking him!


He's the guy in yellow on the left (duh). Next to him, left to right, is my friend Jon's friend, Jon's little bro, and Jon. I have no idea why Jon and his friend dressed funny for moving day.


p.s. did anyone go to Appreciation Night on Tuesday?? We missed it.

current mood: annoyed

12:45 pm - interview!!

okay, as if i wasn't obsessed with Dos enough, I have an interview tomorrow with Jason of Sugar Daddy's (it's owned by the same guy that owns both Dos Gringos.) Jason is the PR guy for all three bars, and in charge of the internship program.

I'm interviewing for a fall internship with the 3 bars. So I might actually be (gasp!) employed by Dos... awesome, huh??

Wish me luck, I need it!


current mood: i need a corona

2:35 pm - Day Drinkers Unite!

Thanks to starlover for letting me know about this community. I live in Tempe and day drinking is a must ... especially for the spring and upcoming summer months. :)

Here's what I look like when I'm in Vegas (needless to say, I won't dress like this in a town where I know people ... LOL!)

So much for anonymity ... LOL!Collapse )

When I'm actually wearing respectable clothing, I work in real estate ... so let me know if anyone out there wants to buy/sell a home/condo. See you guys at Dos!!!
