Dorothy Parker once wrote about martinis. I quote,
“I love a martini
Two at the most
Three, I’m under the table
Four, I’m under my host”
Years ago, living in the Fan District, I used to love to go to the Mirror Restaurant at Harrison and Broad and have breakfast amongst all the alkies nursing their red eyes on Saturday mornings. Riding my bicycle through the Fan streets I would see all sorts of things left over from the previous night’s debauchery. Cars parked on the sidewalks or in the middle of the street. Clothing items hastily removed and left discarded on sidewalks or steps. Seas of solo cups, and yes the occasional straggler asleep under a bush or in someone’s front yard.
