Brad Bought Me a Bourbon

posted by on July 11 at 14:00 PM

Brad, as you may have heard, has been at the Stranger for 14 years, ending today. I’ve been here something more like 14 months. So I don’t have as many Brad memories as some of my colleagues, and thanks to the pot, a lot of the Brad memories I do have are hazy at best. But there is one time I can semi-coherently recall hanging out with Brad outside of work.

Grand Archives were playing the Triple Door. I was going because that sort of thing is kind of my beat here (and because, hey, Grand Archives). Brad was going because he knows all those dudes form back in Jesuit school or whatever. So we combined forces to seek out somewhere to drink downtown before the show. After being rebuffed at a few overcrowded yuppie bars, we ended up down at the Alibi Room, drinking bourbon at the bar. We talked about the ladies. We talked about life. We were about go watch Grand Archives. You know, real guy stuff. And it was sweet. I get the feeling that, if I had come around a little earlier, or if Brad was sticking around a little longer, he might’ve imparted a lot of dudely wisdom upon me. Or at least more bourbon.

Now it’s gonna be all ladies and fags around here. Thanks, Brad.

God. This is so tragic I'm about to cry. How old was Brad? His family must be devastated.

Are Charles and Paul to be chategorized as Ladies or Fags?

or FagLadies?

Paul is a lady. Brendan and Jonah are fags. Charles is, in fact, a lion.

So what's Keck?

Paul is indeed a lady, and Brendan is a theater critic (which is basically the same thing) but I can assure you, I am in fact the last remaining hetero on staff. Grandy's pants are much too tight for him to lay claim to that title.

Clearly, only a bourbon-off will settle this, Jonah.

You may be a DJ, Grandy, but you've got no chance of drinking me under the table.

The problem with you ladyboys is that you stop drinking once you're under the table. I'm just getting started.
