Lonely. Depressed. Hungry. Frustrated. Overwhelmed. No plans on a Friday night. Shall I go on?

Trick in a box
So have you decided on a costume? The parties are this weekend and spill over to Wednesday. What are you going to be? A bare Britney? A rehab escapee a la Lohan? Michael Vick and his dogpound? Larry Birkhead and baby? A dick in a box? This year’s Halloween costumes are definitely going to be interesting, to say the least. There are plenty of sick, twisted minds out there — I certainly won’t be the only Golden Shower sprinkling the town Saturday night. Or will I?

Here’s a rundown of some of the Halloween happenings in town. Most likely your favorite watering hole will have some kind of event planned, either Saturday or Wednesday night.

Fourth Street Live — Oct. 27, 8 p.m., the annual “Hallowfest” promises more than $4,500 in prize money for various categories of best costume. The handful of bars will have the “Heaven & Hell” theme, and magician Spencer Horsman will perform a “daring” escape from two straightjackets while hanging from the glass ceiling. Mmmmkay.

St. Matthews — Oct. 27, 10 p.m., the “St. Matthews Scream” is out to merge Halloween with a pub crawl by offering up a $5 bracelet that’ll get you in all seven bars. Top prizes for costumes include a four-night stay in Vegas and plenty of cold, hard cash. Each bar will host its own contest, and the winners will move on to the finale at 60 West.

O’Malley’s Corner — Oct. 27, 7 p.m., more than $5,000 will be awarded to the most creative and original costumes. Get those wheels a-turnin’.

Baxter Avenue — Oct. 27, 10:30 p.m., Baxter’s Big 5 host individual costume contests at 11 p.m., with the top winners vying for more than $5,000 in cash and prizes.

Phoenix Hill/Jim Porter’s — Oct. 27, midnight, both sister nightclubs are giving away $4,000 in cash and prizes each. Live music, drink specials … maybe a Spice Girls reunion?

The most beautiful tree in Athens, Ohio

Roadtripped this past weekend to Athens, Ohio, where I went to college. I did feel a little old at times, but I still enjoyed the cheap prices and fall scenery. Good friends, great times, $2 Jagerbombs.

If it rained beer, would you be outside right now?

Saw Lou Diamond Phillips in "Camelot" last night. Thought "Young Guns 2" was much better.

I'm never drinking again.

Also, found out that gay night at the Pink Door isn't a great spot to pick up dudes. Hmmm ...

Chill out, Miller
What’s with this new Miller Chill? What marketing genius decided that our lives would be simpler if we didn’t have to spend the time putting lime and salt in our beer? As a Corona drinker, I can certainly understand the need for lime. But salt? Yuck. They’re certainly promoting the hell out of it — every bar I go to it’s either on special, or scantily clad gazelle girls are handing out free samples. It’s hard to turn down free beer, so I’ve endured my fair share of Miller Chill. It’s just not good.

Miller Lite is a solid choice for American beer drinkers — at 96 calories a pop, only one beer, Michelob Ultra, has fewer calories (95). It certainly has more taste than its rival, Bud Light. So why go messing with a good thing? If I want a lime in my Miller Lite, I’ll order it the old-fashioned way: the Okolona Corona.

Gin lovers unite
There’s a new gin in town, and he goes by the name of New Amsterdam. And he’s absolutely fabulous … I’ve spent several nights with him over the last month or so. But I’m willing to share. If your bar is lucky enough to stock him, don’t hesitate to give him a whirl. He’s smooth and subtle and not too piney. He’ll make you laugh, he’ll tug at your heart strings … he may even make you lose your balance. But it’s all in fun. I heard he gets around, but you can definitely find him at the Back Door (1250 Bardstown Road, 451-0659), on special now for a mere $3.25.

Off to Huber’s this weekend for the always delectable wine tasting. I predict a red-wine hangover from hell. Got any remedies? E-mail me at or check out my blog at

Found out today: Even if you sell your car on Jan. 1, which I did, you still have to pay that entire year's taxes on it. Eat a dick!

Did you see "The Hills" last night? The new slang word for vagina is "britney." Awesome.

Sweet bourbon tea.
3 of them.
Or was it 4?

Sprained my ankle.
Stained my couch.
I'll be drinking no more.
