Skunk as a drunk

Ellen Griley wrote a nice piece in the OC Weekly this week that featured the wisdom of my favorite bartender Johnny Sampson from Memphis Santora in Downtown Santa Ana.

Not so much “feeling” the holidays this year? Prefer to stay numb to all that hustle and bustle, that popcorn garland and choo-choo train business? Hate getting gifts and want it to be 2007, like, tomorrow? Complain no more: just shut up and drink, already. Look, no one loves everything about the holidays, but alcohol does wonders when it comes to sprucing up the world around you. Everything sucks less when you’re plastered, and to help get you—and keep you—that way, I consulted Johnny Sampson, a bartender at Memphis Santora in Santa Ana. Read on for his snockered solutions to the most nightmarish of holiday circumstances.

    Johnny is a great guy. He signed my copy of the OC Weekly last night.
    Maybe this Drinking Liberally thing should be listed on the Calendar section of TheLiberalOC.

    All of the suggestions in the article sound wonderful. I’m getting a Sweet Harmony next Thursday. Yummy!
    But the warm champagne bath sounds a bit creepy to me. All those tiny bubbles!
