Night Moves

Last Call
There may be Irish people who don’t go to bars, but I don’t know any of them. The best thing about my Emerald-Isle pals is that they are to a man/woman the drinkingest folks I know. They definitely don’t care ...


The Champagne of Breweries

Last Call
To a professional drinker like Last Call, certain occasions call for certain libations. Smoking cigars while togging JC Penney’s latest line of formal business attire? Gotta have cognac. Sitting down to a fancy dinner dat...



Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy

Last Call

New Jack’s City

Last Call
No matter what bar owners and professional alcoholics say, New Year’s Eve for non-millionaires like you and me is overrated.

Last Call
