The city of Houston is the first major city in the United States to reopen its bars and restaurants. Despite the best intentions of many operators and many patrons, there are enough bad actors on both sides of the bar to create an environment that, we believe, is actively unsafe, both for staff and clientele.

This podcast was pulled directly from our Live Stream bar, which happens every night on Instagram @thecottonmouthclub. From that, we asked our virtual regulars to share a video we made, essentially telling people that we, all of us, are in jeopardy. And we need help.

That led to a massive campaign of sharing, which led to over 30,000 views. One of the first requests was to put up the conversation that sparked the original video. Here is that conversation.

Warning: the gloves are off and we pull no punches. If you are offended by the occasional grown-up word, then this podcast is most likely not for you anyway, but you’ve been warned. We got a bit heated at a couple points.

Wear your masks! Take care of each other. Please share this with everyone you know in states that have yet to reopen.
