There are many excuses to drink, and you better believe we've used 'em all. Getting hired at a job, getting fired from a job and celebrating days with a "Y" in them, you can count on us
to drink. This Sunday is the best excuse we've heard in a while (and like most excuses, totally bogus). It's a Mars watching party, apparently based on an e-mail hoax that the planet will be at its closest and brightest to Earth between midnight and 3 a.m. True or not, after the second drink, the lies sound better than the truth, anyway. (Try "You are so beautiful," and "I can quit anytime.") Have yourself seeing stars 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday on the Whisky Bar rooftop, 1930 Greenville Ave. Call 214-828-0188.
Sun., Aug. 27, 8 p.m.-2 a.m.
