Chapter One: the Modern Local Offered Free Shots to Celebrate Osama Bin Laden's Death
Dave, my chica and I were dining at Chapter One: the modern local in downtown Santa Ana when the helpful waitress said we were getting free shots. I was about to wave it off, figuring the owners knew Dave and I were in the house and wanted to butter us up, so I asked her the reason.
"Didn't you hear?" she replied happily. "Osama bin Laden is dead!"
You don't say.
Apologies for the blurring and darkness, but this shot was taken after two Manhattans...
Now THAT, dear pubs, is a modern local. Gracias, Chapter One, for the bad-ass move, and may you offer free booze bottles to all when this pinche War On Terror is finally complete.
