This is foreshadowing. Jack Taylor, Art Lover will fire the gun that I have now put on the metaphorical mantlepiece.

That said, this is a postcard. To be complete, it should be spelled "Thimk", and a fluffy kitten should be hanging from the sign over the toilet bowl.

I belieb this was actually called Hello Shiva, but I kept thinking of it as Kitty Kali.


The Golden Cafe, right across the street from us.


Jack and Joey admire the artwork of God handing Adam a Martini.


Martini Art.

Mattie prays to the God of Afternoon Cocktails.


Just then, a funk band pulled up outside.


The crowd was very impressed.


I believe the nice gentleman in front of the band is singing a song called "Back Office Lover", in which the word "toner" is rhymed with the word "boner".


Joey even volunteered to be a barback for a while.

This was a line of light into the sky, which you could grab and twist around. It was held up by a heavy duty balloon, and was about 80 feet in the air. Or 18 feet. It was dark and I was probably drunk, so distance was uncertain.
