Default Saturday Night, and some bouncers

Another Saturday in my new neighborhood...

"What do you mean, that I can't hug him?"

Which is what I tell everyone who wants to suck up to Chato. He's perfectly ok with being petted, but if a stranger trys to hug him, he'll snap his teeth about an inch from their nose...



"In Front of Whisky Town - Two images"

This is a decent bar on East Third Street, near Second Ave. I love shooting by this place because of the reflective gray bricks. The guy who is turning around asked me what I was doing. I replied that I was taking pictures to hang on a pornographic homosexual site...



...by no means the best joke that I've ever made, but his buddies thought it was hysterical and immediately posed for me...

Whisky Town is NOT a Gay bar.



This bouncer on the Bowery appreciates that Chato is always ready to give him a hand with unruly customers. A sort of low key, thumbs up...



The bouncer and two customers at Jack Dempsys Bar on Second Avenue. I've been told that it's a pretty good bar, and has Irish Singers who play there regulerly.

Dempsy's is not a bad bar, then in there a few times. Nice Irish bar, many of them in the city though

I like the series, you have the girl magnet with you is see, aka WBD.

Since I moved to this block, walking Chato is a constant repitition of, "You can pet him but don't hug him."

This is because at first he was doing a lot of snapping. Apparently people are desperate to hug him.

Every now and then he becomes aggresively friendly and Wants to be hugged. Usually by really, really cute ladies. Go figure...

He didn't want to be photographed anymore, so I didn't. On the other hand, his friends were ragging on him from the minute I spoke.
