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.
"No, I lost my apartment. I had my job, but I was jumping around all over the place, and it wasn't working out. That's why I came down here."
