INSIDE

As November seeps in and the leaves dry out, cardigan-clad university students from all around San Antonio hunker down because election fever is contagious and catching quickly. November 6 is Election Day, and as a future college grad, this would be a great time to start getting involved in the real world. Whether you’re straight Democrat or pushing for the Green party, making a stand, no matter how small it may seem, is a start. We’re the future, so we need to start making this world our own now. And once we’ve made our choice, cast our vote, seen our future, we can relax because we’ve still got one last month before finals. Besides, I’m pretty sure we’re all about ready to tap out of the learning rink, at least until after Thanksgiving break, which we’re all craving, as a mouth waters for a steaming slice of pie. So, here’s to November, a month of choices: Obama or Romney, apple or pumpkin pie, study or nap.

ON THE COVER WORDS: KATY GLASS PHOTOS: JEFF RAMIREZ

HOOLIGAN’S BAR & GRILL

Come out for good food, great drinks and tunes via Rich O’Toole

H

ooligan’s Bar & Grill embodies eclecticism. As a sports-bar-meetsmusic-venue, Hooligan’s offers bar-goers, music lovers, and face paintin’ sports fans alike a place of refuge from long days of rambling professors, the black hole that is Blackboard, and the winding lines of the JPL. Neil Patel, owner of Hooligan’s Bar & Grill, described the musical stylings of Hooligan’s: “On any given night, a DJ might spin current hits for patrons to dance to or a cover band might storm the stage and pump out jams from the 1970s, ‘80s, or ‘90s. The music supplies a

lively soundtrack for free rounds of poker, coinoperated pool games, an arsenal of darts, video games, and even dodgeball matches.” Hooligan’s plays host to more than just the up-and-coming. Texas country music maven Rich O’Toole will be taking the Hooligan’s stage in December for an event, partnered with Texas country fans, the UTSA Lambda Chi brothers. Besides the stage, Hooligan’s holds true as a

sports bar, which Patel describes enthusiastically: “Monday-night football or a UFC fight… bar-goers can munch mild to extra-hot wings, classic 8-ounce burgers, and individual pizzas, all washed down by our wide selection of import and domestic beers or any fun cocktails imaginable, such as cherry bombs and Washington apples.” Despite the ever-changing nightly features, Hooligan’s loyal hooligans can always count on great food, strong drinks, and plenty of TVs.

ili Peppers, If you like The Red Hot Ch Check out

The Uprising The Uprising: pasT, presenT, and FUTUre David Arias and Lorenzo Perez, or “the prodigies” as lead singer Mike calls them, were together from the start. Then, both Jonathan Gutierrez and Michael Pugrad separately stumbled upon these two geniuses, by what they like to call fate and, as bassist Lorenzo says, “Wham Bam Boom...the rest just starts to take off from there.” Jon, the band’s bassist, describes one of their earliest achievements as a band, “The 5th Annual San Antonio Music Awards, we came home with Best New Band 2011.” Jon reminisced. “What a great night that was, and it was just after we gave a great performance to all of our fellow musicians in the audience. It showed us that we

were doing something right.” All four band members hope to be doing this for many years to come. They hope that The Uprising will endure. Looking To The sTars The band draws motivation from various artists. Jonathan, The Uprising’s drummer, looks to the emotionally dynamic drummer, Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers (RHCP). The lion-hearted bassist, Michael Todd, who guides the saga in the songs of Coheed & Cambria, also guides the band’s bassist, Lorenzo. Then, Mike, the lead singer looks to the lyrical poetry that composes the musical stylings of Damian Rice. Finally, David, the guitarist, is infamous for his love for Jimi Hendrix. In fact, before each show the band watches “Jimi Hendrix at

Woodstock” to get everyone in the right mindset to play. Their BaTTLe Cry Their songs are written in assembly line-like fashion. They spark in the minds of David and Lorenzo who lay down the “riffs” in guitar and bass. Then Jon weaves a beat through the notes. Finally, Mike unleashes the melody and lyrics hidden between the strums of the bass and the rat-tat-tat of the drums. “Lyrically, we’re themed around self discovery, love, and the action to stand up in a stagnant world of greed, fear and war. With two fingers raised in the air and our hopes raised higher!” Mike said. “The goal is to liberate the oppressed in seeking and revealing truth about ourselves, and about our world today.”

“i try to describe our music as red hot Chili peppers’ funk, mee ts Foo Fighters aggre meets Jim ssiveness, i hendrix ’s soul, mee ts incubu s’ complexit y.” david arias, gui tarist for The U prising.

MANIA! ‘STACHE STYLES TO CONSIDER FOR NO-SHAVE NOVEMBER WORDS: JOEY SUMPTER

It’s the mosssst wonderfullll timeeee of the year—NO-SHAVE NOVEMBER! For those of you who don’t know, No-Shave November is the one month of the year where you can experiment with your facial hair and not be judged for it. Any scrub not participating: “Why haven’t you shaved?” Awesome participant: “Bitch, it’s No-Shave November!” So here are some options to try out, you mustache maven you.

THE PENCIL-THIN MUSTACHE All we can say is creepy and socially unacceptable.

12 | NOVEMBER 2012| STUDYBREAKS.COM

THE LORAX Grow your mustache out with reckless abandon and you’ll be looking like Andy Reid in no time.


THE ORIGINAL/ MR. POTATO HEAD

THE FU MANCHU

Disclaimer: Mustache cannot be pulled off and put back on. Large surface area between the nose and mouth is required.

Whether you want to bleach it or not is your choice, but you better get to workin’ on those 24-inch pythons, brother.

DRINK IT UP! Let’s not sugarcoat this shiz: The popularity of a party—the success of a soiree or the FAILURE of a fiesta—is generally, like, 90% dependent on drinks. (The other 10% is generally its sausagefest status.) Yeah, you better have the basics like beer, but besides that, go big with the beverages. Because sadly, sobriety, pin-the-tail on the donkey and kick-ass cupcakes just don’t cut it anymore. *DISCLAIMER-DISCLAIMER-DISCLAIMER* (‘cause here at Study Breaks we ain’t tryin’ to get sued, yo’): Please drink responsibly.

MARGARITAS

TRASHCAN PUN

Because there’s no problem tequila doesn’t solve (Or maybe no problem tequila doesn’t start…we get confused.) *Note: Only makes 8 margaritas *Note 2: You’re gonna need more than 8. Brush up on your multiplication skills.

INGREDIENTS • 2 c. sweet and sour mix • 1 c. triple sec • 1 ½ c. tequila • 1/3 c. Grand Marnier • 2 limes, quartered

DIRECTIONS 1. Salt the rim of glasses by rubbing them with lime and then dipping in salt. Fill with ice. 2. In a blender, combine sweet and sour, triple sec, tequila and Grand Marnier; blend until well mixed 3. Pour into salted glasses, squeeze a quarter lime into each and DRINK PHOTO: THECULINARYGEEK

S VODKA GUMMIE Otherwise known as Bad News Bears INGREDIENTS • Gummy Bears

• Vodka

DIRECTIONS 1. Transfer gummy bears to bowl and pour in only enough vodka to immerse the little guys. 2. Cover the bowl with saran wrap and let sit in fridge 2-3 days, or until most of vodka is absorbed. 3. Bust these babies out and let everyone get their groove on.

14 | NOVEMBER 2012| STUDYBREAKS.COM

Because it’s way more fun to be trashy than classy. INGREDIENTS • 2 bottles Everclear • 2 bottles of Vodka • 12 Cans of Fruit Punch • Frozen Berries • Frozen Strawberries • Frozen Peaches • Ice

PHOTO: BENIMOTO

DIRECTIONS 1. Uhh…combine ingredients. In, like, a really big container 2. Seriously, it’s trashcan punch—it’s pretty impossible to screw up.

PLAYTIIIIIME Remember the days when board games were the best and the most important thing in your life was just winning some damn Candyland?! Well Lord Licorice, it’s your lucky day, because we’ve put some big twists on your little kid games. (And we’re not just talking about throwing the word “strip” in front of all` them… though that’s also a pretty great idea.)

Get rowdy with Rachel Chapman, Derick Lee Garcia and Cady Rodriguez!

MUNCHIES, MUCH?

PHOTO: THECULINARYGEEK

INGREDIENTS • 3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled • 1 lime, juiced • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin • 1/2 tsp. cayenne • 1/2 medium onion, diced • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced • 2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro • 1 clove garlic, minced DIRECTIONS 1. In large bowl combine the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice; toss to coat, then drain and reserve lime juice 2. Add salt, cumin and cayenne; mash 3. Fold in onions, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro and garlic; add 1 tbs. of reserved lime juice 4. Let sit at room temperature for one hour before serving

PRETZEL KISSES Ask a hottie if you can give them a kiss, and if they say no—BOOM—you’ve got a back-up plan. “Whoa, BABE, I was talking about a delightful pretzel kiss.

ER

TEQUILA TWIST PHOTO: ABBYBATCHELDER

Because who the f*** doesn’t like guacamole. Really. (Consider quadrupling the recipe, kids.)

INGREDIENTS • Chocolate kisses • Pretzels • M&M’s DIRECTIONS 1. Transfer pretzels to cookie sheet 2. Top each pretzel with a chocolate kiss and warm in pre-heated oven until kiss is soft, but not completely melted (2-3 minutes) 3. Top each kiss with an M&M; let cool until set

The twist: It’s essentially the same as regular Monopoly, but before you start the game, you’re going to have to— uhh—rework the Chance and Community Chest cards to… well…just incorporate shots of Captain Morgan (oh wassup, product placement!), really. EXAMPLE • Monopoly: “You have won second prize in a beauty contest, collect $10”? BORING! • Rum-opoly: “You have won second prize in a beauty contest, you sexy beast— collect $10 AND GIVE ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS A SHOT” • Monopoly: “Go to jail. Go directly to jail. DO NOT PASS GO. DO NOT COLLECT $200.” • Rum-opoly: “Go to jail. Go directly to jail. TAKE A SHOT, SUCKA! (Oh, and don’t drop the soap…)”

We’re not talkin’ ‘bout just putting out some pretzels. Go a lil cray in the kitchen with a couple party snacks that are sure to please. (Note: If you’re lazy, let’s be real, you could also just order some pizzas. It’s whatever.)

GUACAMOLE

RUM-OPOLY

The twist: The premise is much like the standard game, but everyone picks a body part/color combination. When that gets called—it’s tequila time for the uhh— lucky winner. “LEFT FOOT YELLOW— TEQUILA SHOTS FOR THE FELLOW!” (Sidenote: We realize the redundancy of a twist on twister—deal with it. As a matter of fact, watch Twister while you play. Bam.)

EXAMPLE • The twist: The premise is much like the standard game, but everyone picks a body part/color combination. When that gets called—it’s tequila time for the uhh— lucky winner. “LEFT FOOT YELLOW—TEQUILA SHOTS FOR THE FELLOW!”

PHOTO: OUTCAST104

• The disclaimer: When there is drinking and bending of the body occurring, disaster can occur. So can a little something called sexual assault. If you can’t possibly contort your body to put your right hand on red without thrusting your pelvis dangerously close to someone’s (terrified) face, just make a sacrifice and take the shot, bro.

STUFF YOU MUST NOVEMBER STAFF PICKS

Each issue, SB compiles your musts of the month. From what to do, to what to know, to stuff you’ve just gotta try, we’ve got your go-to guide. So what’re you waiting for? Read up!

MUST ATTEND

Texas Ren Fest! WORDS: SHEYNA WEBSTER

Get medieval with booze, fried food, and some fancy fire juggling

MUST EAT Get your food and fiesta on at Matamoros! WORDS: ALLISON ASBURY

T

he Texas Renaissance Festival hosts over half a million guests each year, and who can blame them—there’s everything you’d want in a festival: chicks in corsets, beer in 16th century goblets, guys on horses trying to kill each other, gypsies, and—uhh—did we mention beer? If you’re looking to get into some serious medieval trouble, this is the place to be.

AVEL 5 REASONS YOU SHOULD TR FEST: BACK IN TIME TO TEXAS REN 1. Food on sticks. Seriously, there’s everything from chicken wrapped in bacon (AND then deep fried) to alligator—all conveniently stuck on a stick. So you can feel like a true gentlemen of the era while you peruse the peasants and find yourself a lady to lay with. 2. It lasts eight weekends. That’s two months of renaissance festivities; what other festival lasts that long? You can get your knight on all winter. 3. It’s in your budget. Tickets are $25 at the door (but you

WEEKENDS, OCTOBER 6THNOVEMBER 25TH, 9AM-8PM GET THE DETAILS AT

TEXRENFEST.COM

can buy discounted tickets earlier online), parking and entertainment inside is free, and premium beer is only $7! (That’s pretty good for mead these days, so we hear.) 4. You get to dress up! And we don’t mean for prom or Halloween. We’re talkin’ corsets, leather, fairy wings and puffy sleeves business. Discover your medieval alter ego! 5. There will be things on fire and practically more swords than people. With entertainment at every turn, from pyro juggling to musical acts that are sure to bring out your serious olde tyme dance moves, there’s a little bit of something for everyone.

I

f you’re in San Antonio and you’re craving fajitas and margaritas, there’s only one place to go to fully satisfy your needs: Matamoros. Experience authentic Mexican cuisine along with a friendly atmosphere and—best of all—a full bar, only one exit away from the UTSA campus.

5 REASONS TO GET YOUR GRUB ON AT MATAMORO’S: 1. Enjoy a four-hour happy hour Monday-Saturday, from 3-7p.m., when you can chug for cheap.

4. Sundays and Mondays there are fajitas-for-two specials. (Only $14.99!) How’s that for a cheap date?

2. There’s a live band on Fridays and Saturdays that provides a soundtrack for your snacking.

5. It was voted the spot for the best margaritas four years in a row! We’ll drink to that.

3. Mariachi bands are there Thursday-Saturday evenings to serenade you while you suck down some salsa.

HOT BARTENDER

WORDS: KATY GLASS PHOTOS: JEFF RAMIREZ

BRITTANY HEARD THE HOT HOOLIGAN WITH HOT MOVES

Hometown: Dimmitt Age: 23 Major: Psychology What’s your favorite holiday to bartend and why?

My birthday? Haha, no, I have worked almost every holiday at Hooligan’s. I would have to choose Thanksgiving. People were always bringing me plates of food. If you were an alcoholic beverage, what would you be? Why?

I would definitely be a shot of Rumpleminz. The smell alone could sweep you off your feet!  Have any pet peeves?

Biggest pet peeve has got to be dressed beers. Someone always ends up wondering why their beer exploded. When is the best night to come in and why?

I would say all. Our staff is awesome! Drink specials are always in effect. Saturday nights we have so many different events to keep you going (UFC, DJ, Bands, Pool, etc.), plus me behind the bar! What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen at the bar?

The craziest thing, probably the soul train dance line. I was involved. People actually got down and did the worm. Hilarious!

: Stop By

an’s HooligG rill Ba92r0 N&orth IH 35,

13 233 k, TX 78 Live Oa

What’s the worst pick-up line you’ve ever heard?

I have heard them all. The most unique and worst had to be “You live too far, maybe you should come stay with me.” Any special bartending moves?

My awesome dance moves. I am always moving! What’s your go-to drink?

I am a shot of whiskey kind of girl. Crown royal with a splash of coke. 24 | NOVEMBER 2012| STUDYBREAKS.COM

Get up, get on your computer, and start watching intense pornography on full volume until she’s gone.

6

Take a phone call and talk really loudly about plans to buy cocaine and eat lunch at the nearest strip club.

FUN STUFF

HOROSCOPES • SPOT THE DIFFERENCE • THAT’S A FACT JACK

SPOT THE DIFFERENCE!

Can you spot the 5 differences between the two photos?

NOVEMBER The stars tell you what’s in store this season. Aries - You’re a hunter, right? Go out and get your own turkey this year, hot shot. If you’re vegan…look for a wild tofurkey, I guess. Taurus - Use this month to focus on your studies before break- I know you can’t wait to stuff your face, but right now your GPA needs attention.

Gemini - Throw your Halloween candy away, man. There’s no reason there should still be a stash in your room. Cancer - Maybe the stars are out of line this month or something, but you just can’t seem to get it together. Take a deep breath and redirect yourself. Leo - Muster up all your lion-esque prowess and confront that one person you’ve been dying to tell off this month. Screw up their break before it even starts. Virgo - Your perfectionism showed in your Halloween costume, so keep it coming by making some delicious Thanksgiving treats for your friends before break.

Libra - Is there a reason you haven’t taken your bunny ears off yet? Halloween is over man—let go of the ears and welcome in the cornucopias.

Scorpio - Happy birthday, yo (maybe). Make sure there’s a cake waiting for you at the family table right next to all those yummy mashed potatoes. 1. Ferret 2. Hat 3. Giant Beard Head 4. Eyeballs 5. Glasses

THAT’S A FACT JACK • In the US, about 280 million turkeys are sold for the Thanksgiving celebrations. • Felix the Cat was the first balloon to be featured in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. • The original version of beer pong was set up like ping pong with a net and paddles. • A scarf is also known as a “muffler” or “warmstrangler.” COMPILED BY: SHEYNA WEBSTER PHOTOS: TECHVT; GOJEFFREY, TAYLOR THOMPSON

32 | NOVEMBER 2012| STUDYBREAKS.COM

Sagittarius - And a second happy birthday (possibly)! Don’t get too busy partying—unless it’s your 21st, of course—you’ve got a big assignment due that you don’t want to screw up. Capricorn -

Christmas is right around the corner, and you can feel it, but try to enjoy the moment and stop daydreaming about sugarplums.

Aquarius - When you go home for Thanksgiving, do NOT call your ex. They’re expecting the booty call, but you should just leave them waiting. Pisces - You just can’t seem to wait until the holidays to stuff your face. At least sign up for a gym membership before the new year, dude. WORDS BY: SHEYNA WEBSTER
