I couldn’t find a date on this AP article (above) which chronicles a day in the life – and in the cups – with Hunter S. Thompson. His love of Chivas on full display, Thompson also stresses the importance of a big breakfast – what else would one expect from a proud son of the Bluegrass State?
I found this through Julia Segal’s Tumblr.
There is definitely a drinking game spin-off begging to stumble through this impossible-seeming itinerary.
While you’re at it, check out this cover letter a young Thompson wrote to the Vancouver Sun in 1958 after you place this on your tongue.
