Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.
Lizard LoungeAli Nikseresht
Explain what just
happened.I overheard you say, "I'm here to interview the mayor of
Lizard Lounge." I turned around and said, "I am the mayor of Lizard Lounge!"
Is that the freakiest
thing that's ever happened to you here?Uh, I guess? Not a lot of freaky things happen at Lizard
Lounge, but a lot of great things happen. Session Americana, for example. They've brought in
awesome guests like Peter Wolf from the J. Geils Band. Seeing a show at Lizard
Lounge ... It's kind of like seeing a show at somebody's basement. The
connection with the music is better than almost any venue in the city.
You're also mayor of
Toad. What's with all these amphibians and lizards or what-have-you?Uh, I don't know. Lizard Lounge and Toad have a mutual
owner. I guess you'd have to ask him.
Do you suspect this
owner to be some sort of lizard himself?He may very well be a lizard person. He may very well be
trying to populate the world with lizard people.
... Through Americana music?Yes.
Why aren't we
terrified?Because the music sounds so good, you can't help but dance.
At least I can't.
