The Cocktailing: Sucker Punch | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

The Cocktailing: Sucker Punch

One unfortunate side effect of alcohol is that normally calm and often times bland people will become uncharacteristically headstrong, violent, and/or maniacal. This weekend seemed to bring out the most unusual in people. On Saturday, two guys dropped by in good spirits, laughing and smiling as they both ordered a beer. About twenty minutes later we found one guy with the other one guy's hands around his neck. They were just standing there perfectly calm, not talking in raised voices, not trying to punch or fight one another. When we asked if everything was o.k. the guy being strangled cordially replied no, as if we had asked him if he liked his coffee with cream and sugar.

On Friday, a girl I know who was always very quiet and reserved came in to release a bout of pent up energy. Usually, she doesn't drink and just sits at the bar and has macaroni and cheese as she talks to her friends about things like what type of Kleenex is the softest or if you could really teach a cat to use a toilet. However, I came to find that one Pacifico can magically turn her into a gawky obscenity shouting Brittany Spears want-to-be. She spent the rest of the night showing off her amateur stripper moves which included her hanging her pinky barely out of her mouth the whole night and slapping her right ass cheek as she bent over and wiggled her butt like an overexcited puppy.

But what might just take the cake is when one of Bend's most beautiful women who is always very put together and perfectly coifed decided on her way out the door to sucker punch our door man. And then as he was on the phone with the police and telling the general manager what had happened, she ran back to also sucker punch the GM. So if you are one of those people who turn from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde at even the whiff of a margarita, well then maybe drinking is just not for you.

Sucker Punch
Cut the top 1/4 off of a lime. Hollow it out with a grapefruit spoon. Fill with 1.5 ounces of tequila and .5 ounces of cointreau. Take the shot and squeeze the lime as you are drinking. Grab the fruit pulp and when your best friend isn't looking, huck it in his face.
