Tito's and Lemonade at Luster Pearl

Tropical night in the backyard of Luster Pearl and the fans obscelecently spin against the thick heat. Zeppelin and AC/DC thump from speakers hung in trees to the amusement of hipsters playing ping pong and whirling hula hoops.

Sweat drips down my back. I’m angry at my beers inability to quench my thirst. Thank God the bartender came thru with a Tito’s, soda and lemonade. This picnic table now can drink my sweat for a while longer.

That one worked.
