I meant to take photos of the Diesel party last night, but got too drunk and forgot. So you're stuck with this photo of Bender's.

I feel bad for those of you that read yesterday’s post about the FREE booze, music and Little Star Pizza at the Diesel store, but didn’t get to go.  But don’t trip chocolate chip, you can go tonight instead!  Here’s my advice though: try to get there as close to 5pm as possible and hover around the long table next to the bar.  That way when the pizza comes out you can be sure to get some.  Yesterday that shit went faster than a pack of cigarettes at an AA meeting.  My other word of advice is to pace yourself because, if you’re like me, once the third FREE drink goes down, you’ve committed yourself to a night that only ends when you pass out on top of your covers with your clothes on.

So instead, I’m going to be going to Bender’s for happy hour today to see the FREE Maus Haus, Sugar & Gold, and Tempo No Tempo show.  With so much free stuff going on, I wish it was Noise Pop all year long!
