I’m proud — no, scratch that — I’m chagrined to announce the debut of Boozocracy, a new online fundraising campaign.
Michael Homan and I are letting people vote on our drinking habits in order to raise money for a library in our neighborhood. It’s kind of like the intersection of literary culture and drinking culture and democracy. Our city of New Orleans is well known for its literary and drinking culture. Democracy? Not so much. We’re working on that. But rather than explain the concept here, check out the Boozocracy website, and it will all make sense. Maybe.
You’ll see my face plastered across the Boozocracy website, but the blame for this whole thing really must be laid at the feet of Michael Homan. He came up with the idea. And some blame accrues to Howie as well, for taking the photos.
Anyway, it’s for real. We are putting our livers on the line for a good cause. Please help — with your donations, and by spreading the word. Throw Boozocracy a link, and hopefully we’ll reach our goal soon. Let the chips fall where they may!
