Keeping up Appearances…

Labor journo Mike Elk moves from his discomfort with men to Jewish men to his discomfort with all men generally at a whiskey tasting event at Sixth & I Synagogue in downtown Washington. Have another whiskey Elk? 1. My god I can’t believe I am at a whiskey tasting session in the basement of a synagogue & there are only men here – so weird. 2. Few things as scary in being a room full of just 40 Jewish men dressed in suits drinking whiskey – so weird. 3. I’m more scared of this room full of preppy Jewish men drinking whiskey than of drugs lords carrying machine guns I meet in Brasil 4.“Sitting in a room of 40 men, I’m reminder of why it’s easier to make friends with women – men r so douchey.”
