If you happen to find yourself, say, in St. John’s, Newfoundland (it could happen!) and are looking for some nightlife, you’ll find it here. At Junco’s Pub, the seediest bar in St. John’s.* This fly-by-night joint is open 24/7. (FYI: you have to be a bird to get in.) When it has customers, here’s how it looks:

And here’s the live stream- check and see if anyone’s tossing back a cold one stopping by for some seeds. (Click the button to start it up.)

Rock-A-Bye, Bikke

SOMEone’s a bit on the sleppy side, wouldn’t you say? (Thrown off by yesterday’s holiday.)

Snorgler on the Orient Express

Agent Romanoff glanced furtively about. The man in the tortoise-shell glasses, pretending to read the paper — she’d seen him once before, in Tangiers. So they were onto her at last.
