Mas Libertad

posted by on August 6 at 1:22 AM


Six and a half hours later, I’m still at Liberty. I’ve got Jason Finn sitting here drinking beers with me (after a few Macallans, neat) as Andrew the bar owner makes the rounds with the rest of the customers. I have to say—the sushi here is better than you’d expect from a white guy rolling rolls.

Sitting here this long, I’ve engaged in several conversations with random people and met a few interesting folks. I discussed linguistics with a UW doctorate candidate who was drinking Manhattans with his girlfriend; of course I brought up Golob’s recent Slog post about science and the English language. Shortly thereafter, Golob himself showed up for some one-on-one convo about his general exam and a huge breakthrough he’s made with, um, whattaya call ‘em? Ah yeah, stem cells. Here’s a guy who can go in-depth on some pretty technical subjects and still be reasonably understood. If you see him out at Liberty, buy the guy a drink. I guarantee good conversation.

It only took you six and a half hours to get a drink at Liberty?

Don't drink your Macallan neat; put a tiny splash of water in it. Opens up the flavor, takes a little of the burn off.

Can you say "Elitist snob?"

You say that like it's a bad thing.

I'm guessing that the upcoming redesign for the Stranger will include changing the masthead to:

"Liberty Lounge presents The Stranger"
