Why I love my neighborhood hangout ... no two visits are alike. Sometimes we encounter friends, sometimes we know nobody. I met the other half of "we" there, so that's an extra bonus.
This evening I had a long conversation with someone I see there all the time
but until tonight I didn't really know. It turns out he is an actor and we both
know some people in common. During the same visit I had some beer-infused
personal conversations with two female regulars about love, relationships,
friendships and, uhhh, 'size'.
I've been a regular at this place for eighteen months; the 'real' regulars go
back five to thirteen years. But I feel at home there. Sometimes I can observe,
other times I can participate. That balance is perfect for me.
When I first moved to this neighborhood, I wanted to find a bar that had the
vibe of the old Cheers TV show. This place is it.
