The Heart of Saturday Night

Last Call
If I heard it once this week, I heard it a dozen times: “So, didja go to The Where House party?” In case you missed last week’s HearSay column, I’m referring to a party on Saturday night at The Where House on Hemphill S...


Swirl and Twirl

Last Call
It’s springtime, and that means frozen-drink weather. Thoughts of icy, sugar- or salt-rimmed beverages make me, um, well, I can’t really say here, but give me a few minutes, buy me a swirl, and I’ll tell you.



Working Through It

Last Call
I don’t know what you were doing the other morning, but I was drinking beer and watching The Price is Right.


BJ’s Brew Goes Down Like Water

Last Call
One of the things I love about going to North East Mall is driving around for hours trying to find the freaking exit to the place. The strip malls all around are just so scenic! Ugh. Someone needs to tell whichever conglomerati...



The Keys to Happiness

Last Call

Ghostly

Last Call
A couple weeks ago, I wrote about dead Mondays, and in doing so I caught some flak for what was perceived as a slight against VIP’s (“RIPs,” March 24). See, I went there on a Monday, and the place was empty except for som...


Nose — and Bottoms — Up

Last Call
Once upon a time, I had amusingly fanciful aspirations of becoming a homebrewer. I bought Homebrewing for Dummies and read about hops and yeast and dunkels and IPAs and formed opinions about what was good and what was garbage, ...



Wine Times Ten

Last Call
My friend Mike told me they’re making wine in Alpine now. “Alpine, Texas?” I asked. Really? Because although I’ve never been there I think I know a few things about the place: It’s near where Giant was filmed. It’s ...


RIPs

Last Call
The other night, I stopped into VIP Lounge on White Settlement Road for a beer. Being a Monday and all, the place was pretty dead. I ended up staring at a muted episode of CSI: New York, wondering if the Greek chick would ever ...
