Evolution

June 25th, 2009
By

Last Saturday night Da Wife and I went to Oceans.

No, not da sea kine ocean with waves and sand but Oceans nightclub in Restaurant Row. Wait. After a 2008 renovation, da new name became Oceans 808 and for all da MLC'ers.... it was wea da old Studebakers used to be. :shock:

We went there to help celebrate a friend's wife's birthday and boy was I.... glad dat I got older. Hear me out.

Oceans, back in da day, was a club dat my friends and I always wanted to go because it was one of da first "exclusive" 23 and older clubs. Most clubs were 18+ and had da mix of immature, about to be mature and trying fo' ack mature crowd all mixed together which at times  got wacky and weird. Plus, Oceans had a very strict dress code and many a people have been turned away at da door so it created an air of "class" just to get in.

I must have been stuck in da late 90's/early 2000 mode cause wen we got to da club I was kinda expecting a small line but nada.

Oceans: "$10."
BL: *takes out $10 and about to pay*...... leans ovah to Da Wife and asks "Did she say $10 total... or $10 per person?"
Da Wife: "I think it's $10 per person."
BL: *talking to self* "HEH?! $10 per person to get in now? WWD!" *turns back to cashier* "Per person?"
Oceans: *nods head with shmall kine eye roll*
BL: *I in turn give Da Wife da eye roll and reluctantly pay*

I remembah wen cover used to be $5 (and da real Whopper was only 99¢)! Boy, $10 per person, no free drink, no guest entertainment, nothing special going on in da club......

Wassap Wit Dat!

Aftah we find my friends, I immediately noticed a "different" crowd than I was used to seeing - a lot of "mature" and "clean cut" peeps chillin'. And then I recogmanotice da music - full on 80's!

BL: *turn to Da Wife* "Whoa! 80's blasting away.... in Oceans? I thought I'd nevah be in a club dat would slam 80's music."
Da Wife: *rolls her eyes*
BL: *about to bust out my John Travolta disco moves*
Da Wife: *rolls her eyes.... then gives da "you bettah not do it and embarass me" look*
BL: "ok. I'm going to da bar, you want a drink?"
Da Wife: "No thanks."

I come back with a round of drinks for my friends and I nevah thought Heine's would be cheaper than Miller Lite! Seriously. My jaw actually dropped at dat - all da while  still paying $5 for a bottle of beer! (WWD!)

BL: *turns to friend* "Wow, $10 cover and $5 beea's?! Geez, not even in da club 5 mins and I'm already down $40+." :roll:
Friend: "You paid $10 to get in?"
BL: "Yeah. Per person. Why? You nevah pay?"
Friend: "Nope. We were in by 10pm. Actually we were in at 9:58pm. No cover by 10pm." :razz:
BL: "Son of a motherless goat!!! We just came in! It's only 10:10pm. I thought was no cover by 9pm like how it used to be so we just took our time."
Friend: *lol* "See, everytime you come late."
BL: *takes beea back from him* :mad:

Nah, I nevah take da beea back. :grin:

But dat got me thinking. Once we was out of high school, my friends and I were into da club scene - my friends more than I - and I remembah doing always club hopping. Once we were of drinking age we'd still hit da same clubs but now had da wristbands fo' drink and we stayed out later till like 6am. Aftah dat it was into sports bars to throw darts, shoot pool, watch ESPN, order beea's by da pitcher and dress "comfortably". Then once we hit of "special age", back to da "exclusive" clubs mixing it up with da sports bar cause certain nights had theme nights at da clubs and nights nevah have, we was at da sports bar.

Now? It's just a regular bar, sports bar on occasion, and rarely a nightclub if I evah out to those kinds of places.

Evolution.

Wat else have you out grown of? Were there any rites of passage dat once you "passed", you was over and done with? Are you a been there, done dat, pau dat type of person?

Do you still go clubbing? :shock:

No shame if you do..... a bunch of my single friends still do..... and I've seen way "older" people at clubs evah since I could go and how you can afford it every weekend beats da heck out of me. Plus wen you start seeing people you used to babysit - or coach - dat certainly isn't a good sign.

Even at my current age I don't mind clubbing (especially since they have da smoking ban) but probably reserve dat for special occasions. I would choose any bar as a first choice cause can at least wear slippahs and shorts.

You could say I've evolved, but all heck going break loose if I evah gotta trade in my bottle of Miller Lite for a bottle of Ensure anytime soon.

 

 

SHOUT OUT:   Happy Belated Birthday Marci!

    BL, I think you getting closer to MLC kine age! lol

    I used to love to go clubbing with friends back in the day. I haven't been to one in years....lots of Sports Bars but not clubs.


  2. Matt:

    clubs...nah. my wife used to like to go dancing with her friends, but for me? pass!!


  3. KAN:

    I've never been into da clubbing scene - I've always been an old fut, even when I was 18!


  4. roach:

    BL,

    I've grown out of going to K-Bars every weekend with my friends and spending tons of money for nothing. I still go occasionally when my friends want to go out and throw money away but the feeling is not the same as in our younger days. When we do go, its still the same old bullsh_t with the girl sitting close to you and saying "you so handsome, buy me drink" except now some of them are young enough to be my daughter. If I had saved all the money that I blew in the K-Bars, I think I could buy Hawaii !


  5. hemajang:

    Clubbing in my day when I was about your age (how old you?-22?), meant going to listen live music, like Kalapana at Top of da Shop, Keola Beamer or Booga Booga at Territorial Tavern or Country Comfort in dat place I forget in Aina Haina.


  6. Ynaku:

    Clubbing????? 8O 8O Hilo???????? :lol: :P

    I rememba going Poly Room. Neva had cover. Just walk in past the security. That was like shoots brah 30 years ago.

    Once in awhile when I have guys help out my crew, we go out have a few but places with FREE PUPUS Yeah us cheap das why. AND we go happy hour so we no pay $5 beea,

    Admit it cuz, you on the edge of MLC and nuthin wrong wit dat. :D


  7. M:

    Good morning BL! :)

    Happy belated Birthday Marci! :)

    Never been into the clubbing scene. I don't like huge crowds, too noisy and I don't drink anyway.


  8. che:

    Can't comment on the clubs, hardly went but when we did go to Studebakers or Oceans it was after work at 5:30 (no cover charge, happy hour beer prices and 2 for 1 pupus or sometimes had free pupus).

    Lance, I can comment on your statement below. We have been conducting an unofficial beer price study because we have noticed this Heine effect at the softball fields. Young guys only drink Heines now days and we were confused by how they could be so rich. Let me explain. In the late 1970 and early 80s, Miller and Bud cost only $1.99 a six pack while Heines were $5.69 almost triple the price of Miller. On sale Heines cost something like $4.59 still more than double the price. Keep in mind that minimum wage was around $2.00 an hour so you had to work 2.5 hours to buy a six pack of Heines.

    Travel in time to the present day now the regular price for a 6 pack of Miller might be like $6.50 compared to a 6 pack of Heines might be $8.50. Relatively speaking there is not much difference in price so the young guys pay a little extra and drink Heines. Keep in mind that I don't have current pricing for 6 packs of beer because I haven't bought a 6 pack or bought beer not on sale in over 25 years (old men only buy beers on sale in 18, 20, 24 or 30 packs).

    To summerize, foreign beers like Heines have been price inelastic compared to domestic beers.

    "I nevah thought Heine's would be cheaper than Miller Lite! Seriously. My jaw actually dropped at dat fact even though we were still paying $5 for a bottle of beer! (WWD!)"


  9. che:

    I forgot to mention that most of my friend only drink Heines or heines light. I am one of the last Miller lite drinkers among my high school friends.


  10. B:

    we did da club scene too, back in da day. Fridays and saturday nights was garans at da clubs. den afta dat was pool halls, foosball and nickel machines was da ting. den was da K bars- lose money, no honey. da only "clubbing" now is try to find some local music someplace kine and jus relax an cruise.

    hemajang- was da Ranch house in Aina Haina. dat place was a cruise place too.


  11. lakesidegt:

    Place in Aina Haina that Country Comfort used to play at - The Sty (I think).


  12. Ocean Lover:

    When Lance Jr. shows up..............."Evolution" will show you its REAL POWER! ;-)

    OL


  13. Coconut Willy:

    @che - Good analysis of the beer prices. The thing is, Heineken isn't that great a beer.

    @OL - Yup, kids will totally evolve you. It will be more like "I remember when......


  14. EMM386:

    I never really was into the club scene. I used to go to Blue Zebra or After Dark or Worlds to drink and hang with my friends, but not my thing. These days, it's just the regular bar on Friday and Monday (different bars, different group of friends) and maybe an extra night if something special is going on.


  15. 9th Island Girl:

    When I lived on campus at UH, my roommates and I used to go clubbing all the time: Cilly's, Rumours, Point After...fun times!


  16. che:

    Coconut Willy, I agree that it doesn't taste that good. You're the only other person I know who feels that way.


  17. Kage:

    Back in college days, uhm the 90's, ***hughhumph* okay, early 90's, we used to go to the Wave. Studebaker and later Oceans was a rare occasion. Then Players Sports Bar on Alakea, now a parking lot, used to in the mix for darts and pool.

    I evolved from the "AWESOME" BarT at the Wave,(Ivan made them the bestest), to drinking heinie. I would share a pitcher of beer with friends, but they like bud and stuff that was cheaper. That gave me a headache while drinking it. So another friend always had a heinie so I tried it and liked it.

    We used to go extra early to the Wave to avoid the cover charge. Plus you could find on street parking before 9pm. Had to save the money for the drinks. Then we could also snag a section upstairs for everyone that came later.

    Slowed down my appearances at the Wave after we got kicked out one night. No it was not my fault. I got stuck trying to break up a potential cat fight. There were some disappointed guys there when I stopped it from happening....

    :lol: You just reminded me of da one and only time I've evah been in a K-Bar. Ok, twice I think and both times I was dragged by friends cause they wanted to go and I nevah have ride. Anyways, all's I remembah was dat while they were buying drinky drinky.... I was telling (preaching) to da wahine to get out of da business. :lol:

    hemajang:
    Clubbing in my day when I was about your age (how old you?-22?),

    :lol: Yeah..... 22 +tax.

    meant going to listen live music, like Kalapana at Top of da Shop, Keola Beamer or Booga Booga at Territorial Tavern or Country Comfort

    Man it must have been some feel good vibes listening to those guys live and just chillin' with a cold one. You should check out da group Kalaeloa - same feel good vibe. Let me know if you like "borrow". :wink: I'll send you da cd.

    Ynaku:
    Clubbing????? Hilo????????

    Oh yeah. Hilo's version is da car headlights flashing on and off with da sounds blasting from da 6x9's in da park. :razz:

    Da Wife and I may do a little "get away" soon depending on if get airfare special holiday weekend - will let you know if we go.

    You'd be surprised by how many people DON'T drink at da clubs..... but then again you'd be surprised by how many people DO drink at da clubs.

    che:

    Dunno why either. It's not dat special in taste but I do like it.... but not enough to spend $24 for a 20-pack. Rather spend my $16 for my 20-pack of Miller Lite. But if you got Heine Lights in da cooler, I won't refuse. :wink: I tink it's just a "status" thing. "Ho brah, you drink Heine's... you hard core eh?"

    I am one of the last Miller lite drinkers among my high school friends.

    I was a Bud Light, then Coors Lite and now Miller Lite (great taste, less filing) :lol: But really, I'd drink anything as long as it's "light". Gotta control da caloric intake. :mrgreen:


  19. theDman:

    Still go K-bars on occasion, but mostly now, it's all about the food. Who got the best pu-pu? That's what matters at my age. And the girls in the club are "trainable"....as soon as they see me, you know they are rolling their eyes thinking, "...oh man, here comes that cheapskate Dman again..." Works like a charm, they usually don't bother with me!

    Turned the clock back a bit and went to a big happening at a club about 10 months ago. Gotta admit, it was fun to see all the young good-looking people...brought back some memories. But haven't done it since. No can handle, too old now, and it costs way too much to party like that.


  20. gmanoa:

    The next step in the evolution is the hostess bars. I know the reaction of most people "eeewww!" or "so skebe!", but let me explain. In my younger years I had the same reaction to these bars and also my ego was such that "eh, I no need to pay someone to hang out with me, that's stupid?". I went through the exact same evolution you depict above except longer because I was around when the drinking age was 18.

    I also had many K-bar experiences and didn't understand the concept at all because it was expensive, they hardly spoke english, and it all seemed totally fake and I just went because some of my friends were into it. We were through with the 20-somethings night club scenes, evolved into the 30-something night club and sports bar scene, family life creeped in on most of us and we didn't have time to waste in the club or bar scene. Few years later, family life a little more calm and secure, there comes a time to reconnect with friends once in awhile but lo and behold we are at the age where we really didn't fit in anywhere at the nighclubs or sports bars. Then one night I met some friends at "one of those" bars and it was somewhat casual, the 'company' was local, the conversation was about sports, what high school you went, sports, sex, sports, current events, sex, sports, work, sports... you get the idea. The 'company' wasn't overly friendly or hard selling the drinks - but just plain good service with the smile and a shoulder touch. Nobody got mad, no drama, no rolling eyes, the 'company' actually participated in the sports debates and actually ragged on the high schools we attended! The single guys may have gotten overly friendly with the 'company' but that was understood. After a couple hours, a few drinks and pupus, we left, no fuss, no muss, the social connections ended, we had a fun time, we left to get back to our busy lives. That's when I said -"now I understand the concept" - instant 'company', conversation, no drama, no gossip, no strings. Not everyone will understand but it maybe part of the evolution and something you won't understand until you get to that age.

    re: the heineken debate - I've found that with heine light, you can drink more, taste better than most of the other light beers and you don't get much of a hangover.


  21. J.P.:

    no clubbing for me..went to one a few yrs back and didn't like the atmosphere so i've stayed away from clubs ever since. to me, there's other things to do than going to a club every weekend haha.


  22. che:

    Lance just to clarify I drink Miller Lite or Miller 64 which has very little taste. Doctor said I need to lose weight.

    So wat does dat make you now - prehistoric? I kid, I kid!

    Yup - Precambrian to be exact ;-)

    Following up to jaydee's and Ynaku's comments about your reaching MLC-dom: growing older is mandatory; growing up is optional. And growing older is better than the alternative.


  24. bamboohouse808:

    I never was fully into clubbing. Went to World's couple times. Then "graduated" to Maharaja. Then I started working full-time and would go to Ocean's alot for pau hana and stay till it got too crowded. Since becoming a daddy, I go to Club Stay Home. :mrgreen: Drinks are cheaper but the "waitress" make me get um myself. WWD?! At least she's hot! hahahaha.


  25. Rosette:

    YES ...I think I save my ten bucks! STAY HOME RENT the $1.50 movie drink my milk.....when I was younger I use to sit and dance suck up all the second hand smoke half deaf in the bar music so loud but now I relax save my ten bucks...EVOLVE TO MOTHER!

    WAT WERE YOU THINKING?!? :razz: :lol:


  28. bamboohouse808:

    KAN - Was it the name? I'm sure it wasn't because of it's massive size and strength. :roll:

    And who knows if Mrs. Bamboo is lurking? She always tells me she's too busy to read. But is she just saying that to give me a false sense of security to see what I would say? She's so SMART!! :grin:


  29. KAN:

    KAN - Was it the name? I'm sure it wasn't because of it's massive size and strength.

    It WAS the name. I was going to say (1) no, it's because it was pink or (2) no, because it wasn't going anywhere, or (3) no because it had a wimpy little horn, but all of those are too mean even for me to say! :mrgreen:


  30. bamboohouse808:

    KAN - Thanks for not going all "Ricardo Montalban" on me. :mrgreen:


  31. Kage:

    BL- she was a friend of mine and would have keeked the butt on the other girl. I neva like fill out police reports and stuff...hehehe.

    Was funny. We were on the dance floor. I only danced when I was really drunk. The other girl kept bumping into my friend purposely. When my friend finally snapped, I grabbed her. She started yelling my name and "LET ME GO!" I thought the bouncers thought I was dakine trying to get sumting. Later we went back to the Wave after a few months. The bouncer says, "Hey, long time no see." My friend replies with, "Yeah kinda had an incident. Had to lay low." The bouncer laughed and said, "Yeah I remember. Had to push you out the back door." then he laughed. They knew the other girl instigated it and that I was no molester.


  32. NKHEA:

    WOW!!!!!! did you folks hear Michael Jackson dies at 50 8O

    NKHEA..... :(


  33. visitor:

    Never was into the club scene. But spent lots of time and partying during UH time in fraternity. Showing age...anyone remember 'Kuhio Grill' (KG's) on King St in Moiliili? Kind of where the 711 and the flower shop is. We'd have beers there...the old ladies would serve awesome pupus.

    The Ranch House was in Aina Haina (now Mormon Church) and the Sty was in Niu Valley (now either the Le Bistro or Gyotaku location)


  34. Matt:

    "Does she still go? Da Bay area must have a bunch of clubs although wen I was in SF last, da hotel bar scene was quite packed."
    used to be her friend had a mobile company that put on the parties at the clubs. every week a different location, but the same scene. now, it's all about tivo for us. we had babysitting one night last month and realized we were out past 10pm. we was so excited until we realized how fricken tired we were getting. futless, I tell you.


  35. snow:

    went clubbing alot! gradually, just started hanging out with friends - dinner out, movies, stuff like that - instead of going clubbing. in other words, i got old. ha ha! no, it's just that after a while, you cannot handle going to sleep at 5 am a few days a week and expect to be functional at work anymore! yeah, i guess i did get old! actually, another thing i grew out of is shopping! i used to go the mall all the time and shopping used to be a highlight of my trips to the mainland - now, i only go to the mall when i need to and spend very little time at the malls when i go on trips! WWD!?! i never thought i'd get tired of shopping... :roll:

    *no comments from bamboo, thank you very much*


  36. bamboohouse808:

    snow - I wasn't planning on saying anything. I'm just glad you're enjoying your golden years. :grin:


  37. NKHEA:

  38. B:

    BL- I guess nickel machines was before your time. used to be all "backroom" kine stuff in the pool halls. keep pumping da machines with nickels, match screens and stuff like dat. da guys at da "desk" get one counter on da machines, you win monies. I neva say dis but was da kine illegal gambling. used to even have poker machines later on dat would pay out too. kinda of hometown vegas shmall kine.


  39. NKHEA:

    BL; wat, you wen get chance fo jump in da wata :? get some waves now 8O :D

    B; wea you guys used to go play nickel machines :? we used to hang-out at Riverside, below da old P&P supa market/Chio's Pizza

    NKHEA....like surf tomorrow


  40. opso:

    ho....i was one clubbing fool back in da day. moving hea in '84 from da BI....i was like one keed in one candy store! and had sooooo much good kine "candy" ova hea. ;)
    had da Don Johnson look going on! :roll:

    now dayz......mostly jus go bars......sports, local, karaoke, k, etc.... ;)
    but once i a while i get dragged into going to some fancy shmancy kine place. and it's interesting to check out different kine places every so often. :D

  42. B:

    NKHEA- yep, used to hang sometimes at Riverside. used to spend alot of time at Holidays. used to have one small pool hall in waimalu shopping center where used to lose da nickels alot.


  43. BananaFysh:

    I hardly used to go clubbing back in the day. Just wasn't my scene.
    Sometimes the girls dragged me along to be "uji guy repellent" and I got to be "designated boyfriend" for the rest of the night, or until the uji guy went away. ;)

    THat job never have any "fringe benefits" either. Those girls just used me! :lol:

    I had more fun going to bars -- regular, sports, whatevers. If had dart boards, even better. I had a friend who threw darts better the drunker he got! I would get progressively worse, so it kinda balanced out by the end of the night. ;)

    As for beer, I used to drink either Bud or Bud Light, but now I drink whatever's on tap. I'll drink Heineken Light or regular Heineken if that's all get. It's not my first choice. Plenny guys I know equate any "green bottle" beer with a good party. To them, all "green bottles" are created equal. :? whatevers.

    Did opso mention Newcastle? :D

    Late 80's and into the early 90's I use to go to Bobby Mcgees by Kapiolani Park and Rumors in Ala Moana Hotel.

    In the mid 90's you could find me at Ward in either Cattle Company or Ryan's. Players sports bar on Beretania St.

    Since I've moved and got keiki now, no clubbing or bars for me.
