Sundancing Whiskey

LAST CALL
Every once in awhile, I sit down and write a list of life goals. The next time I do this, I’m adding “acquire celebrity gift bag” to the list. The way I see it, if there comes a day when I’m standing in front of a mansi...


Last Call

Days of Gore

LAST CALL
My first experience at a Movie Tavern was in 2002, in Ridgmar, when I saw the original Resident Evil movie. As I recall, the Ridgmar Movie Tavern was the only movie theater where you could get drunk without having to hide somet...

Mellow Monday

LAST CALL
I hadn’t seen my friend Ashley, a nurse, in too long, so I called her last Monday to hang out. “Can we go in the afternoon?” she wanted to know. Apparently she had to be at Parkland Hospital in Dallas for her shift the ne...

Last Call

Rummage Rock ’n’ Roll

LAST CALL
As this goes to print, I will have been sober for, like, I dunno, three whole days. No beer, no booze, no weed, not even so much as a sip from one of those adorable 8-ounce Coca-Colas that look hilarious and precious when clasp...

Sunday EVENIN’ Comin’ Down

LAST CALL
Long ago, when I had a real job, one that required me to be behind a desk at 9 a.m., go to weekly meetings to hear about “shared learnings,” and listen to fussy clients berate my team’s leader over a speakerphone, I devel...
