Hide and Seek

I noticed this distinct shadow the other day while driving Pat to work. The late morning light really created a dramatic contrast. So after dropping Pat off I doubled back, parked my car and trotted across busy Colorado Avenue to get a shot of it. The building that's served by this alley actually had a big part in my previous life: it used to house a great gay bar called the Hide 'n' Seek, or H&S for short. Everyone knows that gay bars have the best dance music! When I was in college and going out clubbing every single night, we used to hit the H&S on Saturdays for "after hours" dancing after our regular hangout, the Annex, would close. "Wanna go H&S-ing?" was a familiar question, and the answer was always YES! So we'd leave the Annex and go straight to the Hide 'n' Seek for two more hours of crazy dancing and partying, and then if we had any money left we'd hit the 24-hour Denny's around the corner for greasy french fries. Oh to have that kind of energy (and metabolism) again! Those were the days!
