So there’s this other weekly paper in town. It’s called DFW.com: Ink Edition, and it covers entertainment. If it strikes you as odd that an actual paper is a supplement to a web site — the stories that run in Ink also run online — welcome to 2010. Or probably more like 2008, but whatever. I still read it every week. Among other things, Ink looks at nightlife in the Metroplex and often gives me glimpses of places and people I’ve never seen and probably never will. If not for that paper, I’d also never know Yucatan Taco Stand was a club – after all this time, I thought people were just getting drunk before dinner there.
One feature of Ink that I always read with interest is the one in which an area bartender is interviewed. In addition to the who and the where — and it’s usually a hot chick who works at a downtown bar where you can practically see T-Pain yelling over the speakers — the anonymous interviewer always ask what the bartender’s primary pet peeve is. And almost without fail, it’s, “I hate it when customers reach over and grab fruit out of the tray.”
