I can’t emphasize how much I love dive bars. Beyond my usual penchant for cheap, well drinks, these are the places where one sees real life happening. It’s extraordinary, really. The regular is a client who the bartender knows, has their special spot and never has to voice their drink order. There’s a variety in the cross-section of the population which belies the superficial analysis of the seemingly downtrodden patrons of these places. I think i’ll start an investigation on the ones around me. You’ll love it. You’ll love me. All will be loved.
