Vox on the Rocks: The Fainting Goat
Vox presents a new series, in which she sends a writer or two to go review a bar. To get the full effect, she has them send her text messages documenting the evening. The text message transcript is below and includes all the glory of drunk text messaging.
At the bar:
12:11am V: Everlasting light playing as we walk in. Like it already.
12:13am R: Initial impressions: Bartender is kinda cute, nice atmosphere with beautiful lighting. Chandeliers everywhere. Dark sort of sailer vibe to it.
