Christy and I went to Locos for dinner tonight because it was Sunday, I was out of beer, and needed to get in my car and drink and drive to protest the legislature’s ineptitude (I kid, sort of — Christy drove). I noticed at the Locos (btw, Jamie Lofton, you’ve gotta come up with better commercials, the whole “pub food, meaning public house food . . .” lecture is getting kinda lame) this:
“Tonight: Young People for Reichert”
I realize Robert Reichert, who is right now my preferred choice for mayor, is an experienced politician, but if you are going for “young people,” you probably should have had this at the Cici’s Pizza. Oh, and young people can’t vote.
If you are going for the 18 and older crowd that can vote, and the 21 and older crowd that might like a cold adult beverage while they hear your pitch, you should probably consider something other than “Young People.” It just sounds kind of lame.
Oh, and legislators, the Tahoe I was parked next to had several beer cans in the cup holders for the front seats — you couldn’t help but notice them. Just think, these people may get out on the highway after going to Locos to top off and kill some folks because you guys were too lame to pass laws that would encourage people to drink at home on Sunday. They clearly ran out and had to go to a restaurant because of your stupid Sunday ban.
