It’s what causes people to push their limits to the point of insanity, what spurs exploration of territories both physical and metaphysical,, that unexplainable quality which arouses curiosity in the dark side. Some days, Dark Sparkle is your alter-ego; other days it is your most natural feeling form. Dark Sparkle is Mona Lisa’s smile, tarot cards at prom, mother’s milk, the apocalypse. Dark Sparkle is an adventurous way of life–audacious and bold as BRC itself.

We offer the kind of haggard mental and emotional support you get from folks like your uncle Larry. The one who taught you how to roll a cigarette and never to worry about growing up. Who always had the most worn in, dusty, comfy couches, who never seemed to care if you had rips in your clothes or blood on your knees, and whose bar was always open and magically full of whiskey. And who, of course, was a creative genius with a blubbery sensitive streak. Ask your dad if you can hang out at uncle Larry’s again this weekend. If you can find him. Check over at that run down old western Desperados dive bar down the road.
