Sturdy, Funky

LAST CALL
It’s no secret that I like chain restaurants, and I kind of get excited when a new one springs up from the dust of some freeway-adjacent retail development. If I were a little kid in 2014, I’d probably grow up thinking that...

Eldritch 8-Ball

LAST CALL
Just in time to be too late for Halloween, I discovered another allegedly haunted bar. I say “discovered” as if I had to hack through miles of dangerous jungle and even more dangerous jungle creatures to carefully unearth s...

The Sundays

LAST CALL
More than any other time of the week, I find myself bar hopping on Sunday nights. It’s not that I don’t go out Fridays or Saturdays (or Mondays or Tuesdays or Thursdays, for that matter), but those evenings tend to be spent...

LAST CALL

J.J. Dakota’s: Cue the Moves

LAST CALL
I’m not terrible at pool, but I’m far enough from good that I normally stay away from any tables where players exhibit the slightest bit of competence. It’s not that I hate losing. I guess I just don’t enjoy making publ...

The Local Arrives

LAST CALL
I’m never likely to turn my hand to raising a barn or building a trebuchet, so for the most part, I don’t care that I can’t tell beech from birch. However, being able to say what kind of wood went into the countertops and...

Everything Is Permitted

CHOW, BABY
Warning: Reading this column might trigger serious envy in those with shellfish allergies. Have an EpiPen handy. Chow, Baby is like the William S. Burroughs of mollusks. I’m an insatiable junkie with a penchant for depravity ...

Slay Bells

LAST CALL
I have the hardest time shopping for my dad. Every year, when I visit my parents in California for the holidays, he’s always the last person I buy for. Though I carry his phenotypes in my face, waist, and hairline, non-geneti...
