I’m supposed to write something about myself in this section, but to be honest I don’t know myself that well.  I mean I talk to myself, but I wouldn’t say we’re close.
Here’s what I’ve ascertained in my travels with me so far.

My name is River Running Free Hawkins. I did not make that up. My parents actually named me that. I’m not some hippie named Daryl who prefers you call him Rain Water because he thinks it makes him more interesting. It doesn’t, Daryl.

I came into this world through California. I don’t take a lot of things too seriously. My art usually expresses that fact pretty well.

I’m one of the owners of The Bebedero, I run the bar program and I curate the art on the walls. I also painted the mural.
I'm the Bebedero's current Mezcalphiliac, as in my love of mezcal borders on the inappropriate. I also teach mezcal tasting classes and if you've taken one you're probably a Mezcalphiliac too.

That’s it. Drink Mezcal, do art, repeat.

¡Salud!
