Luscher's Red Hots in Deep Ellum is closed. Alice is very :-(

In the great brick room

There was a television

And a red hot, too

And a picture of

A sausage being charmed by a dude

And there were three bearded tools sitting on stools

And two smiling cashiers

And a couple of beers

And a giant mirrored knife

And the best onion rings of your life

And a Herky and a brat and a kitchen full of cuss

And a friendly old man who was whispering “Rush”

Goodnight, room

Goodnight, dude

Goodnight, sausage being charmed by a dude

Goodnight, light

And the red hot, too

Goodnight, tools

Goodnight, stools

Goodnight, cashiers

Goodnight, beers

Goodnight, sink

And goodnight, green drink

Goodnight, giant knife

And goodnight, onion rings of life

Goodnight, Herky

Goodnight, brat

Goodnight, nobody

Goodnight, cuss

And goodnight to you, the old man whispering “Rush”

Goodnight, stars

Goodnight, air

Goodnight noises everywhere.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
