Denver, Weed, & the Key to Super-Hearing.

Kerouac quote kerouac apartments.
Jack Kerouac smoked weed too. 

The city of Denver; streets and Buildings. I'm in bunk 8 room 22* at the Denver Hotel and Hostel.  It's my first night in this place, but I've been in Denver for over a week.  I've had one gummy edible and two Coors Lights.  My head is burning up and I can feel the fire in my cheeks.  It's a combination of the edible, and the altitude that's causing that "hot" feeling. Take it from someone who knows his drug effects, getting messed up at altitude is no joke, and living close to sea level for the last 8 years hasn't prepared my lungs or my nerves for the 'mile high city.'

Saint Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick's Day

3/17/2017 Justin Arn

Saint Patrick's Day.  As a bartender I can tell you this is the single worst day of  the year.  Cinco de Mayo? Ha! Nope. Thanksgiving eve? A walk in the park. But screw Saint Patrick's Day. Especially if it's on a Friday...

I've been unemployed many times in my life. Most of those times I would generally describe as unpleasant but with Saint Patrick's day on a Friday, I can tell you I'm ecstatic not to be behind the bar right now.  This holiday bring's out the absolute worst clientele.  Ironically it's a clintele I'm a member of: mid-to lower class white males.
