Vox on the Rocks: Mr. Smith’s and drunken singing
Vox on the Rocks is series in which Vox 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.
This week, the writers decided to review Mr. Smith’s. Although it is not a new bar, it looked far more exciting than any other Georgetown bar on a Thursday night (and they simply refused to go to Rhino). Each reviewer will be referred to by pseudonyms.
