By this time, a young man had come to sit down next to Angel. He was her boyfriend, Seth, a 30-year-old from north Jersey. Like Angel, Seth was a bartender, but in Jersey City.

"How did you two meet?" I asked Seth.

"At her bar. I was a customer."

"You could afford to drink at Cantina!"

"Yeah, man, I had money then."

"Yeah, we had money," Angel jumped in. "We went out."

"So did you lose your job in Jersey City?" I asked Seth.
