Fear and Loathing in Tunnicliff’s Tavern

We’ve had our issues with WaPo’s Gene Weingarten in the past. While Gene is capable of brilliant writing, his weekly column has been as stale as the beer spilled on a barroom floor. Each week, he churns out recycled, hackneyed garbage that isn’t funny or interesting. So, we take a look at his ramblings and analyze them in our weekly feature, “What’s Weingarten Writing?”

Byers soon wound up at Tunnicliff’s Tavern. UPDATE and CORRECTION: Around 2:30 p.m. we heard back from Newell, who said he never made it out last night. Why did he take so damn long getting back to us? “Sorry, I was sleeping,” he replied. (We have changed the copy to reflect that Newell never made it to the bar.)
