Speak Up, I Can't Hear You over the Sound of All These Seals of the Apocalypse Breaking

Hard on the heels of its neighbor suffering what is bound to be a gentrifying fire comes word that emergency backup dive Hawk 'n' Dove will close in October for a grime- and soul-stripping renovation.

I am in no way trying to romanticize the dark, indifferently-serviced Hawk, but dammit, that was one of my dives and to see it turned into one of a chain of like-decorated places (in terms of decor and patrons) is dispiriting. Kids today etc.

I to have fallen victim to the remodeling of my favorite dive. It will never be the same.

I've just installed iStripper, so I can have the hottest virtual strippers on my desktop.
