The News.

I wasn't listening.

I looked over and pulled out my ear-buds.

We lost The Bitter End today.


I was taping, for sunday night cartoons....I'm playing it all back now.

The building was 130 years old.....no sprinklers.

It was too hot for me to walk to the store.
People were fighting a fire in that.

I was pissed the other day when I saw their advertisement.
They were touting themselves as the oldest Brewery in Austin.
Oldest ONLY because Waterloo Brewing Company
was driven out of business. Couldn't afford the rent, for a Town
coming into a new 'Age'.


Damn it.
I liked that place.
I--I have a shirt?

*head in hands*

I've known the head brewer since '95.

They were there for the Beer Renaissance
in the mid-'90s

When the new law was passed........
And Texas could BREW-PUB again.

Made way for the smaller places...Lovejoys included.

And the building...the building alone.

It hurts in places
I can't reach.

It just BURNS.

So now the THIRD oldest moves up a slot?

Who would that be?

As with the Oasis- I doubt we've LOST anything

Anything in the 4th street area is surely insured, and will be back

my belly hurts that I pointed that out to you
in the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema rag,
just days ago.

Did you see the News?
The building looks........bad.

You're right of course, She's got MAD insurance,
but it won't ever be...THAT building again.
