Dad Trade Meet-up


Tonight was the first Dad Trade meet-up. Three of us met at Pete's Tavern for drinks and to shoot the shit about life's daily happenings. Pete's Tavern claims it's the oldest bar in NY, and it strives on keeping that look. It's dimly lit, the stools are rickety and the bar is covered in about three inches thick of black paint. It's where old kegs go to die. If you can't drink it out of a mug or a shot glass they don't serve it. Exactly the place for men to talk about their feelings! We all have one child but PeterY and I have boys while JerryD has a girl. We talked about our kids playing sports, teaching respect and the triangle. We compared our own upbringing and the survival strategies needed in multi-sibling households and found many similarities. A great discussion regarding beer vs. pot and the parenting dynamics of a boy child vs. a girl child. We drank and told funny stories. There was no chest bumping, high fives or hugging. Just dads shootin' the shit. We walked out in agreement that we needed to do it again.

You mean you guys didn't hit on any overly tatooed young ladies that look a lot like Sandra Bullock...
