"I was on vacation in the Caribbean with my parents."
"At The Dark End Of The Bar" is the name of a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series The Other Side. It was originally broadcast on December 31, 1998
Joe is a teenager on vacation. He falls for a girl, gets propositioned by a prostitute and a friend's mother, and ends up drugged while on a boat with an older man. Ministers speak. Joe celebrates, blows noisemakers, talks about a fired employee, etc. Killing people in a restaurant. Needing things - a girl, to cook. Going to sleep in a mattress store and dreaming of utopia. Retirement home people were once children. "Ask me what time it is, and I'll tell you how the watch is made." Meditations on time. A tattoo of a country landscape.
Joe has produced several somewhat different programs with the same title.
Includes a retelling of The Queen Of Puerto Rico
