This is just an alternative to the bars here you folks have been hanging out in - if anyone happens to be interested. The floors are dirty, the crowd is rough, the bartender/bouncer will throw you out into the street if you get violent, there are peanut shells all over the greasy floor, and the only drink they sell there is beer...

Party on.

Hey, if we sit out on the back porch, will our keisters freeze to the cheap chairs out there?

Warm beer please. Actually tastes good on a frigid day!

(Oh, and back on Dec.6 link you need to scroll down to Nov.28...)

Zooky is a stealthy man, LOL. He waited till the perfect moment :D

Happy New Year to you zook. We will be serving warm beer and cheese in honor of you. Should your Boltz take the show, I will ACTUALLY eat warm beer and cheese in your honor.

Only if they're warm.

Boltz might have had some divine help today but why would zook have waited so late into the game?????

As a musician who exchanged many musical thought with Zook, I can SO appreciate that story. Thanks FoF.

i just wanted to share something i found out about David from his brothers blog

this was posted to Zooks brother

Dan, I think I can shed some light on the origins of "Zook". Freshman year at UCSD, your brother and I took a class in "Music Appreciation". It was a hard core theory class and your brother really got into it, while for me it was pure torture; I just didn't get it. Anyways, the course textbook was this piece of work by Victor Zukerkandl:

During the year, one of our friends, Steve Clemens, was giving out nicknames to everybody. Dave kept bugging him to give him one, and Steve looked over at the Zukerkandl book in David's room and hence he was christened "Zook" which somehow evolved into Zooknoone or Zook No One. and that's it in a nutshell! Gosh, I miss that big guy.

Warm beer it is.

Hat, I tried that line a few years back. I got an "icy glare" from one of the regulars, it was either vannie or devildog. By the way, she's been MIA for over a year.....

Raise a keg to zook, whose glass is bottomless......

Ah, the beer is finally warm.

I'm not sure if I'm closing the joint for tonight or opening up for the next celebratory day.
