Chapter One: the Modern Local Offered Free Shots to Celebrate Osama Bin Laden's Death

Dave, my chica and I were dining at Chapter One: the modern local in downtown Santa Ana when the helpful waitress said we were getting free shots. I was about to wave it off, figuring the owners knew Dave and I were in the house and wanted to butter us up, so I asked her the reason.

"Didn't you hear?" she replied happily. "Osama bin Laden is dead!"

You don't say.

Apologies for the blurring and darkness, but this shot was taken after two Manhattans...
Immediately, the flat-screens at the bar turned from the Phillies game and GolTV to Obama's speech, as the waitresses went around the restaurant to tell everyone that Chapter One's owners were treating the entire house to a shot.

Now THAT, dear pubs, is a modern local. Gracias, Chapter One, for the bad-ass move, and may you offer free booze bottles to all when this pinche War On Terror is finally complete.

I've been up all night since hearing the great news -- remembering my best undergraduate student from years ago. When Flight 93 plowed into that field in Pennsylvania, he was on board, his last thoughts, I am certain, focused on his wife and two young daughters.

God bless our men and women in uniform. May we always deserve their courage.

Correction:the Phillies game was not on the flatscreens.....the *Mets* game was on the flatscreens

The sound was off on the flatscreens and baseball is best watched in person, so you'll have to forgive the mistake... we were having an actual conversation.

Uber, help me out on this one...you're from the 'Mets' side of Jersey, not the 'Phillies' side.........

Yes, but I'm from the Yankees side of the 'Mets' side of New Jersey.

You're a Mets fan? Gawsh, that's as bad as being a Cubs* fan.

Not as bad as being a Yankees fan though.

Sorry about 1969...next time, TK Burger is on me

(had lunch there again [Bristol Street location] on Saturday. If I was a Chief Food Weekling of the Weekly, TK Burger would be my 'Crosby'. Despite being super-packed, the burger was as amazing as ever...juicy, perfectly grilled, and on a bun so fresh it could have been in a 2 Live Crew music video.)

Uh, we write about TK ALL THE TIME. And rightfully so, I might add...
