I was getting ready for my day game session, when I got a call from Vicious. He was in town to celebrate my bday and was almost reaching Dupont. We had made plans to go there to scout an Asian restaurant for celebrating the occasion. I tell him I'll be on my way.
I figure he'll be slightly late so I decide to finish my lunch and get an approach in. My plan was to go w/my lunch to the park near the school library and eat there and then game. People tell me they never get time to day game and I always tell them it's bullshit. You can day game during your lunch break. Eat your lunch outside (near a park, benches, etc. ) or somewhere with people (cafeteria, busy Starbucks, etc.).
I buy a pretzel at the pretzel stand and start walking looking for a place w/a cute girl to sit down. As I'm walking I see what appears to be a hot Indian girl sitting down on some steps working on a laptop. I am about to chode, but I tell myself just sit down near her and eat your lunch there. I go sit down and eat my pretzel w/a coke on the side.

I chode big time and don't open when she gets a phone call. After I'm almost done I look at the time and Vicious should be arriving now. I tell myself, just fuckin' open for the sake of opening, and then start walking to Dupont. I tell the girl excuse me, and I go functional and ask her where I can find a good fancy Asian restaurant, since I was genuinely looking for one.
She has no idea and tells me she stays in Fairfax, VA. She asks me if I'm a graduate student (her transitioning the convo, which is a HUGE IOI) and we start talking. This girl is not only cute, but was very receptive. She really wanted to talk to someone, and she took my functional opener as a means to have one.
I am struck for time and did not intend for it to hook this hard. I had just planned to open and walk away (drive-by). She asks me the usual rapport questions. She's new to DC and being a commuter makes it hard for her to meet people. I find out she's actually Jamaican and she likes clubs, over bars. I probe for logistics to see if I can insta-date her w/me to Dupont. She's meeting up w/friend to study. I ask her what she's doing for Halloween weekend and she has no plans. I tell her my friends and I are celebrating tomorrow at ESL. Before I can even funnel to the number close, she tells me to take down her number.
My phone is acting funky and we end up spending 3 minutes exchanging numbers. This is probably as long as the actual conversation lasted. Once we're done I tell her I'm off to find an Asian restaurant and head to Dupont to meet up w/Vicious and his GF.
I wrap up class and head to Dupont for happy hour to meet up with Googles at the Public Bar rooftop. He opens two women near the bar and we start chatting. He tells them it's my bday and we're off to the races. He mini-isos the friend, and I talk to my girl. Things are going well, I find out she's in town for the weekend and is visiting from Chicago. A while later the friend fucks shit up and says they have to go. We laugh and puzzle ourselves over what her problem was, since my girl was enjoying herself and Googles girl wasn't giving away signs that she was bored. We bounce to ESL.
Lupe Cantina - Indian Biker Girl
ESL isn't poppin' so we bounce outside. Walking by Lupe Cantina we see that it's packed; some Halloween/Networking party is going on. We find out it's over, but there's still a crowd, so we enter. Googles immediately approaches a cute girl w/some big weird red glasses. Googles was opening like a mad man this night, he was making me feel like a pussy haha. I stand there chode crystalizing, until I spot a smoking hot Indian girl in a group adjacent to the set Googles was talking to.
She's wearing black fishnet stockings, black booty shorts and a black leather jacket. I'm turned on and w/o hesitating do what I've recently been doing well...I creep. I slowly walk over and hover around the group and casually talk to Googles who is busy in set w/his group. The Indian girl is talking to people in her own group so I play it out. After a bit she looks in my direction, I turn and look at her, she looks back. I take it as a cue to open and ask her if she's wearing a biker jacket.
It hooks like a motherfucker and we start talking. She tells me some crazy story that I didn't really care for about the jacket. I ask her if she actually rides a motor cycle, and she does. I high five her, touch her on the shoulder and tell her "I find women who ride motor cycles to be incredibly sexy". Shit is going smooth as butter, she's doing most of the talking but I feel like I need to transition of the motor cycle topic.
While I'm figuring this out, this dude comes out of no where, the girl see's him and they scream and give each other a big hug. Next thing I know is I'm boxed out. Although it wasn't a blowout, I feel like a chode since I'm now not inset. Some old woman comes up to me and just starts talking to me. I'm not even into her but talk to her to stay in set and social. Out of nowhere her husband comes, grabs her and kisses her. I hate it when dudes in bars come and kiss their women while I'm talking to them, in an effort to mark their terrority when I'm not even hitting on them.
Lupe Cantina - Chung Li and Sexy Maid
After the old woman hands me her business card, I politely eject and head upstairs w/Googles. The place is nearly empty and we head to the bar. Googles starts talking to the cute Asian bar tender. I join in the conversation. The bar tender is dressed as "Chung Li" from Street Fighter. This girl had great energy and a nice body. My Yellow Fever starts to boil and I start to spit heavy game. Since it was a slow night she had all the time in the world to talk with us. I tell her she's the "funnest bar tender we've met this week", and that makes her even more responsive to us. After seeing her nice big ass when she walked by, I became even more aggressive. The best way I can describe her, is she looked like the Asian pornstar London Keyes.
I ask her what her favorite drink is, and we start talking about that. I ask her what she's up to later on, and we find out that there's a party at Josephines that she might go to if she can get her manager to let her leave early. I smell DTF all over! I tell Googles that this girl is prime for the bounce and he tells me to go for it. I have no intention of actually heading to Josephines, since I'm catching the metro pretty soon. But I do know that bouncing girls makes setting up a Day 2 or number close more solid. After getting his green light, I talk to the girl some more and find out some valuable information. She tells us her and the other bar tender are like twins. I probe and ask why, and she tells me all this shit about the other bar tender. Chung Li then walks down stairs to do something for work.
A couple of minutes later another hot Asian bar tender, even hotter than Chung Li, goes behind the bar. She's dressed as a skimpy maid, just like the maids in pornos. I can't help myself and immediately start talking to her as well. I knew she was probably the bar tender Chung Li was talking about. I tell her "You must be ***name Chung Li told me***". She says yes...I tell her Chung Li was just telling us about her. She asks what, I joke that she told us the good and dirty stuff...Instant Social Proof. She has great energy just like her friend, no wonder she said they were like twins. I feed off their energy and we all start having fun.
The manager comes and I tell him the two girls are cool as hell and should get to leave early. He doesn't budge, the girls aren't able to get off early so they have to work the entire night. With the bounce out of the picture, I contemplate whether to number close. I remember what AFC Adam said about gaming bar tenders; to play long term game. He says come to the bar often and keep talking to them till they're comfortable and enjoy talking to you, and then invite them out for something casual and low pressure like lunch, party, etc. Since they meet and talk to tons of people a week, I figured that getting a number would not be the best option to hanging out. After the last couple of weeks, I hate getting numbers and find setting up a SOLID MEETUP is more important.
I ask them what days they work, and find out the slow days. The plan now is to stop by on their slow nights and talk to them and eventually setup a meetup with them outside the bar. They told me they have free Salsa lessons during the week, so I'll stop by for those.
Googles tells them it's my birthday so that boosts the fun even more. Two other women at the bar, who weren't as hot start talking to us and giving us serious IOIs. I guess seeing us talk to the hot bar tenders turned them on. We talk to them for a bit, and they buy us shots since it's my birthday. We all take shots, and Googles and I see that these women are horny. I'm not attracted, but I invite them to my bday party tomorrow but they can't make it.
I go back to talking to the two Asian bar tenders. I get Chung Li to invest by having her come out of the bar to take pictures of me and Googles. We had planned to leave over an hour ago, but we were delayed from talking to the bar tenders and getting shots from the two women. We decide to finally call it wrap. We say thanks to the two women for buying us shots and I go behind the bar and give Chung Li a big hug and tell her I'll stop by again.
Realization: I was impressed with my ability and aggressiveness in gaming the two Asian bar tenders. The fact that I was heavily attracted to them brought out the best of me. Same thing with the Indian Biker Girl. I've noticed that I'm approaching hotter and hotter girls like it's as simple as drinking water. I've slowly been noticing that when I see a girl I find extremely attractive (mostly Asian and Indian girls), my mental thoughts have switched from nervousness (AA) to OMG! I have to meet her! I then I just go into her proximity (creepin') and try to open by any means necessary.
