A NEW NAME IN THE OFFING


One option:  The Farting Warthog Saloon


Our barfly
From Girona, Spain
























Girona is a college town, which explains the large number of trendy, beautiful young co-eds dressed to kill this warm Friday evening.  

They travel in packs, outnumbering young guys, though the square abounds with young lovers holding hands and kissing.  

It is mostly a native crowd.  

Girona, at the height of summer, seems unspoiled by tourists.  

The last people who tried to invade were the Moors, and they got buzzed off by a swarm of diseased flies.  


Hence, Girona’s hero and mascot, the fly, is celebrated on fluttering flags throughout the city.

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
