“POETIC DRUNK-NESS” Part 1

poetic-drunkness-2

 I don’t know about you all, but it is hard to find motivation to go back to the work week after a weekend of enjoying all that Austin has to offer. I usually find inspiration in famous quotes I find online, but recently realized some of the best quotes I remember are the ones I’ve read in the bathroom stalls ...

IMG_3585

This episode is different as we talk about discrimination and dress code with Mel and Mr. Black. For the past years, there have been many incidents of discrimination at bars around Austin, and it happens all over the country. Many people of color, including African Americans, are denied entry because of the way they are dressed. In recent news, DeAndre ...

Wisdom of a Drunk Man

drunk man talking

I was just sitting down at a table at Bungalow and this dude comes to sit next to me. I had no idea who he was or what he wanted. All I knew is that he was way past drunk. Have you ever been near someone so drunk, you can actually feel it even though you’re dead sober? Well, that ...

The Story of a Girl and a Dude

This is a story about a girl and a dude. I actually met the girl through other friends that night. Then the dude showed up and one of the most fascinating plot unfolded before my eyes. I was actually taking notes while I was watching it. It was like being at the theater and they were performing just for me. ...

East Side vs West Side

people_in_bar

Looking at Austin’s night scene, it seems to work like a spectrum that stretches from as far as Frontier Bar on the East side to Molotov on West 6th Street. Then you have everything between: Rainey Street, Red River District, Dirty 6th, Warehouse District and 2nd Street area. In this post, I’d like to compare the 2 extremes, namely what ...

Sup wit it? Everything good ?   Anyway, dat ain’t what I’m here to speak about. So I’m out last night at this one spot wit my boy. He is a cool cat don’t get me wrong, but his dance moves went from 0 to 60 in New York Minute LITERALLY. I’m chillin’ with a lil’ whiskey and beer, i ...

It’s Called Bar Etiquette, People!

Etiquette-for-dummies

I don’t mind a crowded bar. People are just hanging out waiting to be served because the bar is busy. But if it’s crowded because people are hanging at the bar even when they’re not ordering, that’s gotta be the most annoying thing ever! “But I don’t have anywhere to put my drink down.” I don’t care. Go find a ...

Grown Men Should Act/Dress Their Age

http://www.dreamstime.com/-image11994536

If you know me or have read some of my previous stories, one of my hobbies when I go out is to people-watch. I’m sure everybody does it too some extent but most people are oblivious to it. And that’s OK: they’re out to have fun so why waste time watching other people do the same? On top of that, ...

The Group Hook Up Part 1

600-01787831

I love people-watching. I think of it as live entertainment: trying to figure out what people are saying based on their body language and facial expressions. You can tell when a group of guys is eyeing a group of girls, when a couple just had an argument, when a douchebag is about to make a move, when a girl is ...

Screen_shot_2012-03-23_at_3.09.57_PM.800w_600h

I got wind of the Yassine Enterprises scandal a week before SXSW from a local bar owner who said he was looking into buying Roial.  This came as a shock until he unveiled the details of the trouble the Yassine family was in.  I immediately mentioned the news to my close friend who has been a DJ and promoter in the ...
