Do you get laid much if you call yourself the "Grease Monkey"? We're not asking to be flippant or funny; we really want to know for real. Does that work even if you are married? Is there a Mrs. Grease Monkey, who washes your greasy clothes and sleeps in the same bed with you every night, falling out onto the floor because the sheets are so slippery? Do you have baby Grease Monkeys? What nationality is Grease Monkey? We took these pictures while getting crawfish this past Tuesday at bar a bit out of our Inner-Loop jurisdiction. It's big and red and reminds us of a barn, but with plasma screens everywhere. It's not a bad place - they have a good burger menu and the crawfish were seasoned just right.
Though we probably didn't look the picture of superb health, what with smoking one of those ten-minute American Spirits while shucking our crawdads. You can take the quasi-redneck out of the suburbs, but you can't take the dirty scumbag out of the quasi-redneck.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
