Things started sluggishly at The Drinking and Dancing Competition at Sons of Hermann Hall last Friday night, but people kept coming and with all the drinking it really descended into chaos. I talked to a friend there, and she reminded me of the book and film They Shoot Horses Don’t They? It’s about a dance marathon/competition during the Great Depression that ends with an assisted suicide. The Dallas Dancing and Drinking Competition probably ended in some assisted vomiting. Anyway it was a great way to spend a hot and sweaty night in Dallas.
