OK so my Maid/Matron of Honor emailed me and told me the greatest story ever from last night. She was out in Tribeca with this chick she works with for happy hour drinks and this mommy with baby in tow rolls up with her stroller and sits at the bar next to where they were sitting, pulling the stroller right up to the bar so that, essentially, the baby is sitting at the bar. Maid/Matron of Honor and her coworker were kind of off-put, to say the least, because UM it’s a f**king bar and what are you doing there alone with your baby, but the baby was either sleeping or being quiet so they were like OK, fine. Mommy orders a martini and is sitting there boozing away alone and Maid/Matron of Honor and coworker started getting heated about some crap their boss pulled and Martini Mom goes “EXCUSE ME YOU ARE GOING TO WAKE MY BABY!” really loud. My Maid/Matron of Honor starts hysterical laughing because there has been loud-ass music bumping the entire time and, again, you took your baby to a bar so STFU. They pretty much apologized as sarcastically as they could and continued at whatever volume they chose.
Fast forward a few minutes – baby wakes up and starts crying. Martini mom picks the baby up out of the stroller and puts baby over her shoulder with one of those little spit-up rags. Baby vomits. Martini mom removes baby barf rag from her shoulder and throws it on the bar on top of MOH’s cowokers Blackberry. Coworker freaks out on Martini mom, they get into an argument, and coworker is like “You thinks it’s just OK to bring your baby into a bar and throw vomit around. How do YOU like it?” and dumps the rest of her drink into the stroller. Martini Mom freaks and Maid/Matron of Honor basically throws some cash on the bar and splits outside to have a smoke/laugh hysterically. She told me that Martini Mom and coworker got into it hardcore and the bartender ended up kicking Martini Mom out of the bar. Martini Mom then started yelling at the bartender and the bartender basically called her a s**tty parent and told her to bounce.
The moral of the story is twofold: don’t drink alone at bars with your baby, and don’t mess with a New Yorker’s Blackberry. I still can’t stop laughing while typing this. Thought I’d share with the NYC girls.

I love this story. I love it. When I have kids, I am going to be so very careful about adults and their adult time. Bars are not for kids, that is one place I know I can go and relax and not be reminded of the impending doom of parenthood.

I’d get upset if anyone’s vomit got near my blackberry! Don’t see that she’s a bad parent though, the baby isn’t hurt by being in the bar, only the other patrons are annoyed.

LOL i mean I think it was pretty crazy to dump a drink in a stroller and I feel bad for that baby but Martini Mom was asking for it. She didn’t even apologize for getting puke all over the girl’s Blackberry. She just ignored it completely when the coworker said something. I believe her response was “Oh, did I?” So, yeah, harsh to dump a drink in a stroller but the girl was drunk – CAUSE IT’S A BAR.
Classic NY story.
