We’ve all got that one friend—sharp-dressed and silver tongued—who could sell a glass of water to a drowning man. He’s quick with a lighter, quicker with a joke, and studied in the art of locution. Let’s raise a glass to the raconteurs! Urban South dedicated this crisp, smooth- drinking ale to the smooth-talkers, the tavern bards, and the gifted gabbers. So go on ahead. Drink deeply, laugh loudly, and long may you ramble.
