The Truth About Bars

Quite possibly the most candid and hilarious version I have ever seen of current bar culture. Time was you could sit down at a bar and bitch about getting laid off from the paper factory with a Yuengling and a shot of Old Grandad. Now it's become MTV Spring Break except more intellectually vapid. GI Kate has the post here and it is excellent.

It seems that posting your blog preferences gives a real sharp look into your personality....rather like reading the bumper stickers on people's cars.
i wonder if we have you pegged....

I like the bars where you literally can hang out without being an alcoholic and "people watch", have a good drink and talk, listen to music. You know, like a place to be that you want to be. (No, not Cheers.)
But unfortunately, I, personally only know 2 like that anymore.

And some of the other ones look to be at opposite ends of the spectrum -- as in way too skanky or way too preppy, and I don't want to be in either of those situations!!

It's hard to find a good bar that you like. But let's keep looking!!

I admit to being a barfly, but Kate's post deserve ample attention. That post was hilarious.

My grandmother had a saying: If you mess around a pile of dog-do, you might slip in.

Bag Blog,

Another good one is "If you hang around the barber shop long enough, you're gonna get a haircut".
