I want to look him straight in the eye, and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where’s the Tylenol?

Birthday dinner @ Gus Gus ✅

Very nice redo of Stewarts and 128 Cafe by Anna Morgan and Kevin Manley. The famous burger lives on, while the chips with speck, créme fraiche & smoked salt were a great appetizer. Loud and parking is difficult (but they warn you up front about both). Great value and friendly service…
