Beer at the End of the Universe

Don't worry, this isn't going to be like an edition of Nova on PBS that sounds interesting at first then puts you to sleep. This will put you to sleep right away. For some reason, I was on the west side of Albuquerque, driving along Unser Blvd. Inexplicably, the road somehow morphed into Universe Blvd., which was much more fitting a name considering the area I was driving through. Have you seen Universe Blvd. around Tierra Pintada? There's like six blocks of houses to the west, then nothing. Just black. The world ends right there. Luckily, there is a new-ish Kelly Liquors to keep your spirits up if you have to be stuck in that part of the Universe.

This Kelly Liquors is only a couple of months old and is nice and bright, with craft beers greeting you on the left side of the store as you walk in. There are three coolers of beers that are almost all dedicated to the $9.99 make your own six-pack deal; beers like New Belgium and Full Sail. Another cooler offers beers like Ska, Stone, and Rogue for a more expensive $12.99, too rich for me but this is the last beer you can get west of the Mississippi... or until you get to Route 66 Casino. But why would you want to do that?
