A time they’d never forget (if only they could remember).
It’s the last day of school in the summer of ’76, and the kids of Lee High school are busting loose. Like most high school kids, they’re a cliquey bunch – there’s the jocks, the burnouts, the geeks, the mean girls, the freshmen, the gearheads – but if there’s one thing that unifies the lot of them, it’s the need for some good ol’ worthwhile visceral experience. As the long Texas night settles in, the kids bounce from a busted house party, to a pool hall, to a field-kegger for the ages all while debating life’s immortal questions: Who am I? When will I get out of this podunk town? Where’s the beer?
Part of Nitehawk’s August WAKE AND BAKE brunch series.
