Raise a Bingo Lager! to the electric pulse of our nightlife — a frenetic dance fueled by the characters that make our scene a hotbed of unadulterated fun.
Meet our photographer, Jody Adams, a fellow who’s been pounding the pavement after-hours for months, with his camera capturing all the nocturnal magic our town has to offer. There is a simple poetry that only comes alive when the sun goes down.
Last week’s nocturnal tour de force kicked off with a check-in at our brethren at Bingo! Beer Co. — that place with a line that’s more like a weekly street party. But he didn’t stop there, he glided through to snap the sartorially splendid at Helen’s, swapped stories with the night owls at En Su Boca, slipped into the embrace of the queer-friendly haven of Godfrey’s, and jammed with Sam Reed and her band of merry makers at Gallery5.
So here’s to the neon poetry of the night, and a city that resists the call of slumber, because, dear reader, why sleep when you’re living in a dream?
