When it isn't possible to dump a significant other at home, consider the dark, cozy confines of the Piano Room, Waldo's south-end strip-mall cabaret. At night, the mood is friendly but a little unpredictable, and the regular patrons exhibit enough reverence to the place that they won't notice you. That soft piano music floating about the room encourages intimate conversation, but awkward tears can be blamed on the singing bartender (who doesn't let the crooning get in the way of mixing a drink as strong as you need on this occasion). Get out of your relationship on a Friday or Saturday night and you'll get to hear Dave McCubbin at the keyboard. Maybe he'll play John Lennon's "Imagine" — a good song for head-hanging shame.
