For an additional $1,000, Lou will shave his head for Neurofibromatosis awareness!

For a measly little donation, you can make all this go away! Well, except for me, I'm staying!

Only $315 to go! I honestly don’t want to cut my beard but if it raises money and attention for Neurofibromatosis awareness, I’m all for it….for the right price, that is! $500 is all it will take to see my face bare-ass naked! Five people have already ponied up. How about the rest of you? For an additional $1,000, I will shave my head. That is definitely something I do not want to do! Go to

Hands down, dive bars are our favorite joints to hang out in and Poison Girl in Houston is no slouch when it comes to providing good, clean dive bar fun. There’s a few pinball machines, cheap, heavy drinks, a hip cast of urban bohemians bellied up to the bar and a killer jukebox—this one being heavily, okay totally, steeped in all music Texas, from country to punk, rockabilly, indie and some hip-hop. Poison Girl brings to the Houston bar scene exactly what it seemed to be so lacking in, a dive bar that knows it’s a dive bar and doesn’t want to be anything more than that.           A portion of all Poison Girl proceeds of July 12, 2015 will benefit the Just Ask Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) dedicated to raising awareness of neurofibromatosis.just ask 18968977458_0d34816213_b
