Brasserie des Artistes du Faubourg

April 30, 2002

There's some current top 40 music going on here. The place is rather dirty and divey, cheap looking. The few tall wooden chairs that line the bar have plush animal skin-patterned seats. There is a lot of trash on the floor, cigarette butts and sugar cube wrappers, including my own sugar cube wrapper which blew off my square smoke-patterned light-brown table when I huffed at some point. The cup and saucer are completely white, the outside of the cup, at least (well, except for a tiny trace of coffee around the rim).

I think Boyz 2 Men is playing now; I heard the DJ mention their name just before this infernal harmonizing started. The artificially red-haired woman who served me my coffee has put on her coat and left; her replacement is male and not nearly as attractive. An old woman smoking a cigarette with white poodle hair is sitting a little ways away from me. She has a Perrier in front of her and is just staring out the window, observing all the activity outside: pedestrians, cars zooming about, and not much else other than the chronic Obligatory Large Dog Trotting By. There's a Chez Papa -- my favorite restaurant -- across the street, but the smell of potatoes that normally surrounds it is not appreciable from this distance. My chair is wooden, but regrettably there is no plush animal skin-patterned cushion on the seat.
