Who Shot J.R.? Who Cares? Have a Shot Instead.

Thirty years ago–good lord, has it really been that long?–the TV show Dallas premiered, forever putting Dallas on the map. Nearly 360 million viewers tuned in to see who shot J.R., which is probably why, if you visit, say, Paris, somebody might ask you if you know Bobby Ewing. (Yes, it happened to me.) Anyhoo, to commemorate this very special 30th anniversary, the Rattlesnake Bar at the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas is offering a special drink menu beginning November 1 called–you guessed it–“Who Shot J.R.? … The Shot Menu.” (Ba-dum-bum.) For 8 bucks you can get, say, the Sue Ellen Ewing Shot, aka, “An explosive shot of 100 proof Southern Comfort to match J.R. and Sue Ellen’s fiery relationship.” Hang with me after the jump for the full menu. And I’ll see you at the Rattlesnake Bar November 1. With this economy, I’d say we could all use a drink.
