Raul did it, yes his did! Black Tuesday '11 on tap at The Bruery.

More than Raul's Persian girlfriend in high school; more than 1001 Nights... This damn thang is silky smooth! Hot damn! Dripping down my throat like a precious drop of water off a stalagmite tip from Carlsbad Caverns! Oooo baby!

Now relax, my children; it ain't all unicorns and rainbows like a sorority girl's brain waves; it's a bit boozy on the tongue and nose, and when Raul says a "bit," he means, a sand speckle "bit."

All in all, Raul does it, Raul does it good. Still, it's kind of a one and done sort of thang (like Raul's Gucci wearing princess in high school). But like said hoochie, Raul knows that he will have dreams of coming back.
