Hunter S. Thompson Photograph Exhibit Ending Saturday
Hunter S. Thompson did everything better than you.
He smoked better. He dropped acid better. He shot guns better. He rolled with the Hell's Angels better.
He even took pictures of girls in bikinis walking Dobermans better.
When he died mysteriously he even distributed his ashes better than anyone by having them blown out of a cannon.
If you haven't seen the fine collection of photos taken by Hunter or of the fine writer, you only have a few more days to catch "Gonzo" at M+B (621 N. Almont, West Hollywood, 90069).
