A Children’s Treasury Of Dancing And Hijinks From Your Atlanta Drinky Thing

TTommy, your wife is callingAtlanta, dear Wonkadoos, was a compleat treat. About a dozen hardy lovers came from all over the South — one young miss from Birmingham! — to drink our beer and eat our vittles. And every one a peach! As usual, we will not be identifying the beautiful peoples in our party pix, but they may do so if they choose, in the comments. EXCEPT! We will ID TTommyUnger, who is the sexy old beast in the black mustache, because we must talk about his wife! Now. You never know what’s going to happen when someone brings a wife. Maybe she will be unhappy with our crude, vulgar, libtard ways! Sure, he hangs out in biker bars, but maybe they lead separate lives and she knits muffins with her High Baptist Ladies Auxiliary (we understand this is what they do in the genteel South). Nope. Melanie proceeded to regale us with tales of waving her titanium .38 at any ol’ motherfuckers who wanted to cut her off in traffic, and also some good ones about Jimmy Carter at church. So Melanie is our newest lady love, and she’s packing heat. Party people after the jump!

    1. ManchuCandidate

      Stink gland is stinky. And your table manners leave something to be desired. Also that whole invasion of Earth thing because you ate the flag, not appreciated. I have still have scars from the Mobile Oppression Palace.

  1. no_gravity

    So I'm sure you Atlanta peepsies think you're so cool because you went to a place that had walls. Well, we don't need no stinkin' walls in Tampa and they just blow down anyway.

      1. BerkeleyBear

        Yeah, even if they don't actually go for the weapon, they tend to be a little edgy (see my college roommate coming home with glass in his skull from the lady cop he was dating).

  2. Weenus299

    have one in Columbia, SC, so I can be the only person. Something cheap, like in a Mack Donald's playplace or better, the Art Bar.

    1. Terry

      Aw, go upscale for the night and hit someplace in Five Points. Yesterday's was fun back in the mid-80's when I lived in Columbia.

      1. Weenus299

        Yesterday's is hit and miss. The black bean burger is OK, but the chicken parmesan is dried out, gristly and tastelss.

    2. Terry

      Is Group Therapy still there? I fell through a little stage they used to have in the back room one night after a few drinks.

      1. Weenus299

        Yes it's still there. And the bathrooms will make you vomit on top of the vomit that's already laying in the clogged toilet.

    3. Mumbletypeg

      I was gonna ask about Goat Feathers which I thought served as coffee bar *and* also poured brew. I never visited when I lived there but noticed you could drink alchohol at the tables outside on the sidewalk — something that is forbidden here at downtown Richmond restaurant-bars unless they install a railing around.. which is more trouble than worthwhile for most.

      1. Weenus299

        It's still there too, pouring about million different brews, and coffee. A quirky place to get wasted.

  3. KeepFnThatChicken

    I would totally hang out with TTommyUnger. I have no doubt that he was the king of the room.

    1. FakaktaSouth

      Actually as amazing as TTommy is, and we all already knew this, HIS WIFE was the QUEEN. She is HILARIOUS, and smart and sassy and I am so glad to know a couple like them exists in the world. They give me hope.

  4. Barbara_

    These people gathered and managed to make this venue the best looking place in all of Atlanta that night.

    1. FakaktaSouth

      I love you. It was lovely, and Becs is my new knife fight partner forever. If I am ever lost on the streets of Atlanta (the 4 Seasons should be bigger) I only want for it to be with her.

      1. Barbara_

        Tommy sent the pictures of you and the dazzling brunette while the party was going on. I wanted to be there and to meet you both right that minute.

        1. FakaktaSouth

          Oh I cannot tell you how much I wish you were there! I missed a few of my people, but it was very very nice.

          1. Barbara_

            You are so lovely, thanks!
            I rented a vacation home just outside of Atlanta for next month. Let's hook up.

          2. FakaktaSouth

            YES! And you owe me some dances! I had so much fun meeting you! You are lovely and sweet and smart and funny. We should do it again!

    Pet Peeve for IMG 0117:

    Mr. Euclid declares that circular tables pushed together don't really create a unified surface.
    Unless what you were trying to do is recreate the logo for the '96 Olympics, in which case BAH, BAH ba ba ba BAH ba, BAH BAH ba BAH

      1. thatsitfortheother1

        Some chicks wear polka dots. All chicks smell good. Therefore, polka dots are hot.

        I had a hard time with that class.

    1. Guppy

      Mr. Euclid declares that circular tables pushed together don't really create a unified surface.

      I'm sure the state legislature says otherwise. Jesus himself probably squared a circle or two.

    1. Texan_Bulldog

      Somehow I did not picture John Cole looking like that. The comments are hilarious over there, too.

  6. BaldarTFlagass

    Good thing TTommy isn't sporting the goatbeard to go with the cool 'stache, or he'd be "twin separated at birth" with old Walter White.

  7. Mumbletypeg

    Gunplay and all, I love to tell hear the story.. But the lady shown on the right in Pic #5, her tee shirt I can just make out an image of our Prez doing a fist jab which reminds me what puts the 'action' in "action figures."

      1. freakishlywrong

        Actually, I feel like we're being overrun by Orcs. But, yeah, they're Zombies as well. Orc Zombies. Holy shit.

      2. Mumbletypeg

        I'm guessing that's you, then? Way to go! I had the impression you were at one time a Virginian, or else dotted back & forth with various gigs in different locales in the south.

  8. Limeylizzie

    Next week you Wonketteers will have to imagine Rebecca and I in our jammies hanging out together in NYC as she will be sleeping on my couch, or in my bed if things heat up.

      1. Limeylizzie

        I get back next week, I was going to get in touch with you once the jet-lag had subsided. I assume we will all go and play , are you in good shape for that?

      2. James Michael Curley

        My Outlook Distress has it listed as September 13th 6:30 but no location.
        I'm hoping for McSorley's.

          1. James Michael Curley

            I see it has changed and our Editrix calls it Gross. I haven’t been there since 1972 or 1973. The NY frat scene would never have gone near there then. I was also there the night before Lindsey ordered it open to women. In the later visits they still had not resolved the bathroom issue and the window panes on the door were painted over.

          2. prommie

            I suppose it was a coming of age thing for us suburban boys in the early 80s to go there. It was gross then. Full of drunk suburban boys.

            I grow old. I don't even know how to go out drinking anymore.

          3. James Michael Curley

            I used to go to many places in the whole gamut of Washington Square to the East Village in the mid to late sixties. Sometimes I remember them. However, McSorley’s was a place where they wouldn’t let you in the door if you didn’t look old enough and by that the standard seemed to be residents of the Maritime Union Hall around the corner. Then a few years went by with the Army and Vietnam and later when home from college we went there and it was no less wizened but no frat boy types. By the eighties everything was uptown above 42nd street.

          1. James Michael Curley

            The Oak Room is closed as of a few months ago with the holiday season being the expected opening date. I haven’t been to the new Champaign Room which was redone a while ago. I haven’t been there in 12 years. I think the Rose Club was turned into a restaurant.

          1. boobookitteh

            You don't like being served cheese and mustard off someone else's table with stale crackers still in the plastic sleeve? Or having the surly waiter carry your beer with his fingers inside the glass?

            I guess "klassy" is subjective.

  9. qwerty42

    Regret I could not attend. I see The Editrix and Jim are now in Charlotte with John Cole and Imani Gandy (ABL).
    Enjoy NC. I believe the rain will be gone in a day or so.

      1. FakaktaSouth

        It WAS fun and I was so glad to meet you, thank you for everything, I am keeping your number handy.

    1. freakishlywrong

      Heavens no, Baldar. They're only IN Georgia. For the drinky thingee. I went a few years ago to the mountains and trust me; there are no liberal-types that actually LIVE there. It was very Macon County Line.

        1. BaldarTFlagass

          New colleague just transferred into the empty cubicle across from me. Deep Alabama, I thought "oh no not another one" but I was pleased to find out he's totally on our team. About our hardcore righty co-workers he asks, "why don't they quit working here, get off the government tit, and start their own business?" Things are just a little better in Flagass World today.

    2. Lazy Media

      It was in Atlanta, not Georgia. Two different places.

      And there ARE lib'ruls in more rural Georgia; tough and tested ones. Any punk can be a liberal in NYC or SF; takes no guts at all. Being a Unitarian in, say, Macon takes a certain amount of ballsiness.

    1. thatsitfortheother1

      It's a curve (alcohol ingested/desire) that goes up moderately until a break point where it drops off precipitously. Kinda like propellers producing thrust until the tips go supersonic.

      Actually, not like that at all.

          1. FakaktaSouth

            You really don't have the right to be quoting my love of all things jangly what with the way you talk about him. But nice.

          2. prommie

            If only he didn't use 100% recycled riffs I could maybe like him. But as it is I just keep thinking about the song I first heard that line in, you know what I mean? You hear his new song that sounds just like the Heatmiser song? Oh thats right, thats you and Chet's fave!

          3. FakaktaSouth

            I really cannot believe someone who listens to some of the over and over same shit punk as you do feels superior enough to rag on Jack. I just can't – those people ACTUALLY DO EACH OTHER'S SAME SONGS.

  10. fartknocker

    TTommy is a handsome man and his wife is a beautiful woman. But the Editorix in her polka-dot dress makes me giddy. A good time was had by all.

  11. BigSkullF*ckingDog

    Between the polka dot dress and the hot blonde, these are my favorite drinky time pics, by far!

          1. HistoriCat

            (Looks at the picture again, notices there's a head above the shoulders). What are you talking about ? Your head looks perfectly ordinary in a photogenic way.

      1. BigSkullF*ckingDog

        The feeling is mutual! BTW, love the guy in the background of the 5th pic down, checking out your ass.

  12. fuflans

    i am SO glad i was actually in atlanta last weekend not hanging at a cool bar with editrix and ttommy.

    this means of course that i will seriously misbehave in chicago.

    1. prommie

      Its good rooftop weather, is there a cool rooftop place with views and suchwhat, for us bridge and tunnel people to gawk at?

    2. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Count me in. Annie Moore’s, on East 43rd, has plenty of room, tables downstairs, and it's a quick walk to Grand Central. Not a bad place (after the commuters leave to catch their Metro North trains), but with $10 wings, is it divey enough for Wonkers?

      There's also the W. 79th St. Boat Basin Cafe (burgers & beer on a covered patio, with river view.)

  13. MinAgain

    Hey, I was in Atlanta for Dragon*con this weekend, my own self. Maybe you saw me. I wore a purple octopus carrying a small "I am the 99%" on my head, so that I could be Octopi Wall Street.

    1. finallyhappy

      Wait- did it move- were you Plutonium? Otherwise, no. I was in the Parade with the Periodic Table of Elements as Actinium- but I only wear that for the parade.(radiation symbol on my head and a silver cape) I don't costume the rest of the time(but maybe next year)

  14. Jus_Wonderin

    Yet another dress I can't wear to any future Dallas drinky thing. Many more of these and I am going to have to attend in the nude.

  15. SaintRond

    That guy with the mustache in the first photo exemplifies the hippies of Dixie — leather cowboy hats, barbituates instead of LSD and where Benzedrine still has a place in family life. This is what passes for a Liberal down there.

    That said, Jesus Christ, Wonkette women are such a turn on. I don't know if it's the catnip like effect of the estrogens or I'm just attracted to vicious humor fueled by good intentions.

    Please come to Mexico City. You do have fans here.

    1. Lazy Media

      That is an awesome stereotype, and in that particular Liberal's case, 100 percent wrong. That's actually a booze-snob, ex-punk lawyer who spent the evening buying tequila shots for everyone. You could have gone with deer-hunter, though.

    1. SaintRond

      You think she took one for the team and got together with that Dixie Liberal?

      Jesus. That would be impressive.

  16. Lazy Media

    Yeah, that was some pahdy. Instead of a sausage fest, a beauty pageant. Plus, the guy at the door of the Clermont Lounge liked my Schlitz-Gusto shirt so much he waived the cover.

  17. Negropolis

    Wait, is the FakaktaSouth in the pink?! And our dear Editrix is looking good as usual.

    Ttommy, you sure you're not a character on Breaking Bad? You looked like you've collected a few debts in your day. lol

    Good to put faces to names. Maybe, someday I'll make it out to one of these.

  18. ttommyunger

    Real life (making some moneeze/working out) has once again interfered with my 'puter addictions… Not to identify anyone, but the wife is not shown in these shots, just in case you might think the super-hot blonde is Mrs. T. In point of fact, she is younger than any of my children and I have no doubt that two hours alone with her and a cold glass of water would kill me deader than a wedge. Melody and I, being geezers and all, left around old O'clock and missed the good stuff, as usual. BTW, if you went to the Clermont; my apologies. Atlanta has waaay better titty bars. If you don't believe me try the Mardis Gras next trip.

    1. commiegirl99

      Goddamn it, I knew it was going to be "Melody" if I said Melanie. Please give my apologies to your lovely lady wife.
