HAPPY BIRTHDAY, VINCENT VAN GOGH





Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was without a doubt one of the greatest painters in history. 

Nowadays his work is sold for millions all over the world. 

The Dutch artist is also known for his depressions that lead to him cutting off his own ear and probably suicide. Although in recent years there is a theory that the painter might not have taken his own life. 

There is no doubt that Van Gogh drunk quite a lot during the 37 years he was alive. 

The booze might have played his part in his unpredictable character and Van Gogh even had hallucinations and delusions, but eating paint and drinking turpentine also didn’t make him too stable.




Come to BoHenry's and raise a glass to Vincent.

We have absinthe.

As Oscar Wilde once said: "Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder."

THE SPIRITUAL CONSEQUENCES OF ALCOHOL






Although it is mass produced, mass promoted, legal, and ingested by a multitude of people all over the world, most people don’t ever consider or understand the spiritual consequences of drinking alcohol.


The word “Alcohol” comes from the Arabic “al-kuhl” which means “BODY EATING SPIRIT”, and gives root origins to the English term for “ghoul”. 
In Middle Eastern folklore, a “ghoul” is an evil demon thought to eat human bodies, either as stolen corpses or as children.

KEROUAC'S BIRTHDAY, A FULL MOON & DAYLIGHT SAVING ALL TODAY





Jack Kerouac

Drink: The Margarita
Kerouac, the captain of the Beat Generation, took to tequila thanks to his many trips through Mexico, a country he loved just about as much as his liquor. 
As the story goes, the words “Kerouac, go home” were written above the bathroom urinal at the White Horse Tavern, a New York hot spot for the writer, to remind him to stop drinking and head home.
“Don’t drink to get drunk. Drink to enjoy life.”
