Pink Door.


Pink Door is a bar in Louisville, KY.
Pink Elephant is a club in New York City.

9-1-1 is the number you call when there is an emergency.
3-1-1 is the number you call when there is a non-emergency relating to the government or social service.
4-1-1 is the number you call when you need information on something such as a place of business.

I now know all of these things thanks to one night when I was down in Louisville. I meant to call 3-1-1 but accidentally dialed 9-1-1 and asked them if they knew where Pink Elephant was located. Not one thing about that phone call was correct. If there’s one thing that will sober you up, it’s hearing “9-1-1 what’s your emergency?”

We eventually found Pink Door.. but Lord knows how.
