Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013's Lowdown

You say you want a revolution? Well, can you do lunch?

For Humboldtians interested in climbing aboard the State of Jefferson glory train, the time to put thine money where thine mouth is is noon Wednesday at the Samoa Cookhouse. There, would-be Jeffersonian founding father Mark Baird will pitch a secedin' brand o' freedom to the regular meeting of the right-leaning Humboldt Taxpayers League. (If you can't attend, your Lost Coast Outpost posted video of Baird sellin' Jefferson earlier this week.) Surely there will be many sympathetic to the cause in attendance, so this could be a great chance to announce your candidacy for Senator or Governor or something. Dress nice.

It's always embarrassing when young people attempt to mask their naivety and inexperience through false bravado. Therefore I recommend karaoke at Bar Fly. The occasional strong fish odor can be an aphrodisiac and who doesn't love an inebriated rendition of "Carry On Wayward Son"?
