To not be that 40 year old guy in the bar telling some guy my age that he wasted his younger years and that if he could do it all over again he would do what I'm doing
I'm a political operative living in Madison, WI. I am constantly active either bar hopping, going to live shows, checking out hidden restaurants, meeting new people, and bar hopping. I'm an avid reader, musician, workaholic, with a ton of hobbies. I'm respectful, considerate, and tactful. I'm a big fan of checking out live music. I have a self imposed quota of catching at least two shows a week. I am pretty good about having a good time wherever I am, and usually view it as my fault if this doesn't happen.
Three glasses of grappa.
