I initially asked Rachelle to pose for a R&R centerfold
issue; not only did she refuse, but was inexplicably and adamantly
opposed to the idea for many months. Recently, she approached
me and said she was interested. She agreed to fill in for
this issue as my current subjects were proving to have high
demands and have been bumped to another issue. I was surprised
and had to inquire about her sudden change of heart. Apparently,
my original suggestion that she wear a white wife-beater and
pour water over her chest didn’t go over so well. I
felt like a chicken-hawk and assured her that porn was optional.
Ironically we spent a large portion of the interview discussing
the benefits of having a great rack.
has been slinging cocktails at 710 for three years. She has
been bartending for six years and previously worked at Shaggy’s,
Casita Jorge’s, Opal Devine, and Flamingo Cantina. Rachelle
likes working on Red River, aside from the crack addicts and
the occasional drunken frat boy ‘slumming’ it
and demanding Red Bull. When customers get too drunk she has
a creative way of cutting them off without actually letting
them know. She’ll make a drink without the liquor, hands
over a coke with a smile and gives it to him on the house.
This usually works like a charm. The inebriated fellow is
so happy to get a free drink from a pretty girl that he doesn’t
notice the absence of liquor. In retrospect, I’m sure
she pulled this stunt on me and my fellow R&R staffers
last Thursday night as we spent six hours in the bar and refused
to leave when it closed. I still can’t find my credit
drunken patron probably wished he’d been the recipient
of the placebo trick. He would have been better off. According
to Rachelle, the bar was packed and she was working the band
side. This particular customer was somewhat wee in stature
and usually quite intoxicated. He started a brawl with a guy
twice his side. Rachelle jumped over the bar, broke up the
fight, put the small drunken brawler in a head lock, dragged
him out of the bar, and tossed him out on the street. I try
to offer some friendly advice to R&R readers who might
require service from the people I interview. When ordering
drinks from Rachelle do not demand them from her cleavage
and do not order a made up shot if you don’t know what
goes in it. And finally, don’t come in the bar every
week, forget who she is and then hit on her all over again,
unless you happen to be Bill Murray and its Ground Hog Day.
Oddly, people have a tendency to come onto her while she is
out with her parents.
couldn’t say enough about her beloved co-workers and
owners. Her personal mission in life is to find Seth, a manager
at 710, ‘a good woman’. So ladies, inquire at
the bar Thursdays and Saturdays where Rachelle will be screening
