What a delightful article you printed: “Dino’s, home of Drunk of the Month, still standing after 50 years” (Sept. 24).

Asked how “Drunk of the Month” got started, Kristin Bartolo, owner of Dino’s replied, “That was my idea.” (Sounds like she was really proud of that.) The winner of this prestigious award also receives a parking spot in front of a sign that no doubt celebrates said drunk. She also states, “I probably shouldn’t be telling you this — the drunks would run it over with their cars.”

This is what we need in Las Vegas: more bars celebrating and rewarding the drunks. And well done, Las Vegas Sun, for running such a newsworthy article.

Oh, one last thing, I’ll be calling Metro to keep an eye on Dino’s drunks.
