Name, Lady

Lunch and time to kill before hopping a cab to Boston Logan Airport, so stuck my head in the legendary bar, the Bukowski Tavern in Back Bay.

Some people never go crazy, What truly horrible lives they must live.

A quiet moment to catch up on newspapers, take a deep breath and dechill from a busy week.

Boring damned people. All over the earth. Propagating more boring damned people. What a horror show. The earth swarmed with them.

Sex is interesting, but it's not totally important. I mean it's not even as important (physically) as excretion. A man can go seventy years without a piece of ass, but he can die in a week without a bowel movement.

One of the best ladies rooms I've seen in a while. No free tampons, but very much a Sheenaesque decor.

If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose.

Genius might be the ability to say a profound thing in a simple way.

Sometimes you just have to pee in the sink.

You begin saving the world by saving one person at a time; all else is grandiose romanticism or politics.

Had the bacon and bleu cheese burger. Yummy. Tried the Harpoon Pale Ale followed by the Cambridge Brewing Spring Training IPA. Good choices both.

There are worse things than being alone.

The Tavern is famous for their Dead Authors Club. Basically one has to drink themselves through the 99 standard beer offerings on the menu within 6 months. Successful candidates get their own engraved numbered mug up on the bar with the name of their favourite dead author etched. They are running out of room though, so there is a waiting list apparently.

by popular demand, or professional need was the USB cable purchased?

I'm home, Fender! the USB cord was on the end table under a stack of old frank mags.

And yes, very do-able.

99 in six months isn't a challenge at all. Agreed Fender, someplace local has to be offering that deal...

Are there any pubs in Toronto with 99 beer offerings?

I can think of 2 in Ottawa (Vineyards & Pub Italia) and one in Tally (Leon Pub) and one in DC (Brickskeller - where we got the Beeriodic Table t-shirt).

Add Taco Mac in Atlanta to that list, Sheena. Will escort you there when next you visit. They have 300+, and their honor roll is called Beer Ambassadors.

What the hell kind of pub name is "Taco Mac"?

Sounds like generic Hamburger Helper.

What kind of beers do they have. If it's all that lameass piss scented Mexican shit you can count me in. My hit rates seem to be higher for rant posts.

YIKES! a Leon Tally Pub?

OMG, my head is feeling woozy. I think I forgot to do a Leon pub blog entry from my Tallahassee trip. This is an egregious oversight for which I apologize profusely.
