bars

Bars across the world are as diverse as their patrons; Dive bars, Speakeasies, Cocktail lounges, and bars that capitalize on short-lived trends too ridiculous to name.

    Prickly Elder: An Epicenter For Both Familiarity and Innovation

    Prickly Elder: An Epicenter For Both Familiarity and Innovation

    Isolated at the farthest western tip of Texas is a desertic and mountainous gem. With over 500 miles between it and Austin, its closest major Texan city, El Paso, Texas, has become a flamboyant hybrid of the American Dream and Mexican culture. Two miles south of El Paso is Ciudad Juárez, one of the most populous cities in Mexico. The only dividing apparatuses between the two major cities are the Rio Grande and four international bridges of entry.

    How Dive Bars Got Their Name

    How Dive Bars Got Their Name

    The term “Dive bar”brings to mind various images, depending on what you have seen or heard. Many used to call this type of establishment a “hole in the wall”, where using the terminology of the day, the riff raff would hang out to drink, gamble, and find prostitutes. Older movies would often show preachers outside of these places telling the sinners to repent. “Dive bar” is considered a colloquial term used in the United States to describe a low income neighborhood bar where the local folks get together to drink and or socialize. Dive bar can also refer to a bar or pub that is disreputable, in poor condition, seedy, sinister, disreputable or considered a detriment or blight in the community.

    Inside the World's Best Speakeasy Bars

    If you head to a little joint called Crif Dogs in the East Village to fill up on hot dogs and cheese fries, try walking into the wooden phone booth in the back and picking up the red phone to dial "1."

    My Seattle Favorites Volume 2

    My Seattle Favorites Volume 2

    For Volume 2 of my little series, I thought I would talk about bars that I love that cater to the Queer Folk. As a queer person myself, it is super important to have some spaces, where we can go and be around our community. While literally NONE of these places are perfect they are my favorite. You will not find places like The Wild Rose or R Place here, as they have a pretty intense history of gate keeping against the Trans Community and ageist attitudes. This list is of places that I personally like to go to, but of course I am always willing to hear really about YOUR favorite places as well!

    Wine and Dine

    For the past couple nights, I’ve been cooking dinner (the above three are such) and it was brought my attention to the fact that I have been drinking a lot more than usual lately. Times are changing from being that young teenager I once was, and I can imagine that I am not the only person in this world going through these changes. This will apply to anyone and everyone growing up in this century.
