But when his money's short--and it was pretty puny on Thursday--he reaches for a $1.30 bottle of Thunderbird, the wine of choice among Skid Row connoisseurs, compliments of Ernest & Julio Gallo. Thunderbird is, according to its label, "The American Classic." But on the street it is known, like a pal, by such nicknames as Thunderchicken, T-Bird or just Bird.

October 6, 1985 | JONATHAN KIRSCH, Jonathan Kirsch, an attorney and a columnist for the Book Review, often splurges on chocolate ice cream from Robin Rose .
