Why you should go out tonight

In case you missed it: The October issue of DIME featured a collection of handsome men sporting a mix of vintage and fresh duds in classic locations. Without paying close attention, you might think these gentlemen were simply genetically gifted, and while that may be so, what unites them even further is that they are all members of the Hattiesburg service industry. Cheers to that.

While our search for lovely bartenders was by no means comprehensive, we present the following as Exhibits A-Z in the case of Sofa with Netflix v. Refills with a View, more commonly known as “Why You Should Leave the House Tonight.”
Hey, by the way, today is Thursday. Your debit card wants to buy you a drink at happy hour. Why?

Because a man bun could definitely happen.

Because freckles are a thing in the world.

Because it could get chilly, and you might need a hot toddy to warm you up.

Because you could meet the crew you’ll go on to form a boy band with.

Because that nasty smoking habit of yours needs a venue.

Because you need an excuse to sport your killer vintage threads.
(Sidenote: The lovely Aaron has moved from Hattiesburg to Austin, Texas since our October issue.)

You’re welcome, Austin.

Case closed. See you out tonight.
