Sandy and I have warmed to Emporia. After twelve games of pool we retired to Natasha’s bar on Commercial, about a block from Emporia State College. We had passed it earlier, and the bartender at Bruff’s had recommended it. Essentially, it is the college hangout in Emporia. The entire crew from Bruff’s ended up there. Great group of students, including Justine who chatted with us forever. It has quickly become a favorite bar. On to Guymon tomorrow.
