When I was younger, people would do slum-bar crawls and have private parties and drink case after case of this cheap watered-down beer, get bloated and often sick, and many times they would throw up.
Now people spend more money drinking stronger, better beer, and they are conservative and careful on what they drink, and they actually appreciate the beer they consume. Anybody got a calculator? If you are using a seven-ounce glass, you will get right around glasses of beer out of a keg. There are 16 ounces to a U. WHY charge a reasonable price to locals for repeat business when you can "screw the tourists" at a premium price — a captive audience who are people with real career jobs elsewhere, on vacation here, who can afford to be ripped-off?
I know a place! Great article! Love my Laudy dive bars — sad to see them slowly going away. That's probably going away too, though, as they are completely renovating the place. If anybody can write eloquently about gettin' liquored-up, it's Swenson: Thank you, Mr. Swenson, for this interesting and very-well-written piece. As I read, I could see myself perched on a barstool leaning against the bar with a cold beer in my hand in any and all of the places you described.
And I feel I know all of those dive-bar denisons. I are one. Another thing Anyway, thanks. Kat's got more lives: Whoa, put her back in. She's not done yet. Who the hell is she? I have no idea who this is. It makes me feel like the New Times was short on news and created this thing. Who the fuck is this skank?

Yawn: This is nothing new; she's been doing this for years. She doesn't view it as nip slips; she feels that nudity is empowering. She gets fully nude in interviews and when she does yoga on her show. If you sub to her channel, you get to see as much as you want, of course. She gets naked and also hates any underwear. When you see her, she will never have on panties or a bra, ever.
I watch her for the information: One of the nicest, sweetest reporters out there. This is her thing and what her viewers love her for. Jenny Scordamaglia is a class act regardless of her tiny skirts and shirts. She knows what she is doing; she is smart. Live and let live! Can we please be allowed to develop and enjoy a culture that doesn't revolve around designer jeans?
I feel the beginnings of a cultural and artistic revolution here, and I hope actions like these don't slow it down. We are unnecessarily catering to tourists that are happy enough to have escaped cold weather. Let's make more music! More food! More theater!
More art! We are a city bursting with life and stories — let's stop posing as a display case for luxury goods. All rights reserved.
