LIFE: Last Night of Mexican Morrissey at Lit Lounge (soon to be RIP)

It’s sad when anything comes to a close, but I’m a firm believer that you need to live it up until the wheels fall off in honor of whatever that ending might be – within reason, of course! When I learned that the famed Mexican Morrissey was coming to an end, I shed some of my saved up tears (#sadgirl). It was my therapy. Morrissey Fans would unite under one roof, dancing and singing and maybe crying a little. Then I learned that hot spot and grungey dive bar Lit Lounge was closing and I could feel my heart break. Dear god, do not let an ATM lobby or chain store spring up in it’s place. Anyways, thanks for the memories Mex Moz and Lit Lounge.mexmoz_92714_vashtie01Angelo and Me, pre-gaming…once again!

WATCH: The Controversial ‘Daily Show’ Redskins Segment with Real Native Americans

So happy that Jon Stewart and the Daily Show made this segment where staunch supporters and fans of the Washington Redskins name were brought face to face with real Native Americans. It’s genius. Don’t believe me, just watch…
