God damn... Wade Tatangelo is such a shitty writer.
I didn't even have to read the whole article to realize that I was enjoying the writers style and humor more than the actual advice, as an amateur writer myself I really felt inspired and awed by how quickly you captured my attention........didn't think anything would be able to do that this morning, it's obviously not hard to guess why judging by the article I chose to comment on.....You know it's bad when you end up Googling "how to hide a hangover"
Where did the "hat rule" behind the bar originate?
I'm honored to be in your final top 10. When you're at the helm of a new and spectacular publication please don't forget all the little people. I'm not talking about myself, of course...but those other little people.
Ah, I made your last column. Damn, I am bummed at this news but we'll always have each other. I'll pay you a penny a word just to write about funny shit. But don't write more than 200 words! It's all I can afford these days...LG
Sorry to hear CL let you go but these things usually turn out to be a blessing in disguise. I appreciated your support of the local music scene and you will be greatly missed.
actually, it is more potent to take the agwa with the lime... in a rare, un-pussy moment, this time, the fruit (lime) actually reacts with the alkoids in the agwa and increases the buzz...
so go ahead and lime up!
and i want to say that any 'man' who uses a cellphone flask is not a real drinker since the amount that the flask holds is insignificant (one drink - 4oz. which is lame) and lacks the balls, or class, to have a traditional flask.
"every guy, even the tech nerds"
Hey, hey. I LOVE the tech nerds =)
We just had ours yesterday at Rotten Ralphs on the island. One of our Mensa candidates proceeded to pull a Spaulding from Caddyshack and walk around drinking everyones left over cocktails and shortly after told my boss to "shut the hell up, asshole", chucked a full ashtray at my assistant, told 3 of her co workers to "please fuck off", wadded up dollar bills and threw them at our server as she walked by then went out to the parking lot and curled up in the fetal position under a boat trailer. We got her a safe ride home where she stayed for approximately 5 minutes before finding her car keys and driving to Publix and taking out those yellow parking posts in front of the store and totaled her car without getting a scratch on her OR a DUI.
Wade my man... you are my hero!
Plus, after reading your piece today I had to go get yself some o'that tasty sounding bacon and a nice cool beverage...
i have been outgrowing my wii sports golf... i might be ready for the tiger!
I have Wii bowling-elbow. It's going to be as big as carpal tunnel syndrome I shit you not.
If it makes you feel better, I was sore the day after Wii bowling as well...
"I drink alone" - Thorogood George
Thinking single, drinking double, gonna get in a whole lot of trouble.
11. Robert Downey Jr. as Paul Avery in Zodiac. Avery is the anti-hero in one of those rare stories which features both a hero and its antithesis. Robert, with all his real life experience does the character justice.
Killer line: "This can no longer be ingored. What is that you're drinking?" To Robert Graysmith (Jake Gyllenhaal) who happens to be sipping on something that is both rain-ready and neon blue...
wade, one tenet of journalism is checking your facts. you couldn't even get my name right.
i'm going to write a good old drinking song called "why journalism strikes out in tampa".
wade, get the hell out of tampa, and take your smug arrogance and faux intellectualism with you.
I believe your writer failed to ask any questions or really think about the issue of baseball vs football at The Dugout Tavern. Had your "freelance" reporter asked how the name "The Dugout Tavern" was adopted for the bar, he might have found out that the name was developed in the early 70's because of the softball teams that used to come into the bar from the neighboring softball complex. The name never implied that the tavern catered to baseball, exclusive of other sports or activities.
In any city in the U.S. that hosts both a professional football and baseball team, I would wager football will outdraw baseball on practically any given day. Tampa is no different.
The Dugout Tavern is a neighborhood "Cheers" type of bar that has served the Lowry Park and Seminole Heights neighborhood for 56 years. It provides a friendly & quality atmosphere for the surrounding area. Even in tough economic times, our bar thrives because of our loyal customers who come to celebrate life with their friends. Unlike "Creative Loafing", The Dugout Tavern is not in bankruptcy court and will surely outlive shoddy reporting from a second rate newspaper.
