Generation_D: Good news, Anthony .. the Old Country Buffet is open at 4 o'clock too....


Nice to see you dont have the slightest idea of what a bar is about. Go ahead, wait till 1am to go in, go get your PBR, and try to bed some stupid coont, I don't need your hipsteritis contaminating my communion with my fellow alcoholics while we lament the years lost living inside a brown bottle and whiling away the hours telling lies (except me, of course) about all the great women we've farked, when in reality our pickled noodles couldn't get hard if Charlize Theron was standing in front of us, holding her ass cheeks open begging for sodomy followed by a nice round of A2M. Nay...NAY I say!!! 4 PM is not a place for kids...no sir. Let us professionals take care of that time, sonny.

This article could also be titled: "5 bars that will be full of D-Bags after this article gets released."

1. Pat O'briens (New Orleans) Great bar. Lot's of room to drink. Great prices. A piano bar that can play or fake any song EVER written. Used to patrons that puke or can't hold their whiskey. A trough for the guys to pee in and a powder room for the ladies. Their specialty drink "The Hurricane' contains 3 shots of rum and liqueur. You WILL get 3 times as farked-up as the March of Dimes.

2. The Gibson Washington DC. This ain't no disco. This is a bar for people that enjoy a well coiffed and crafted cocktail. This bar has skilled mixologist. An unbeatable selection of top shelf brands and the bar staff has mad skills to do what needs to be done. Pussies and pretenders can go elsewhere. This is a real bar for real drinkers.

3. Dukes Waikiki (Honolulu, Oahu) Duke's on Sunday is a MUST. Henry Kapono should be enough to get you off your ass and down to the beach. Delicious boat drinks, mai tais, Waikiki sunset with slow dancing, sunsets, pretty wahines, cute surfers and canoe clubs. Tourists? You bet, but you don't live there anyway, now do ya? The savvy locals know that this is an awesome time for a lazy Hawaiian afternoon, ESPECIALLY SUNDAY!

4. Slim's Y-Ki-Ki in (Evangeline Throughway into Opelousas,LA) OR Fred's Lounge (Mamou, LA) This is a toss-up for best cajun-zydeco bar. Both have their own charm and feature some of the finest and most original zydeco artists today. A strong drink and an ice cold beer can be found at either joint. These places are the real deal. No BS. All races mix well and party well here at Slim's. They share a love of good music and playing hard & drinking easy after working hard. At Fred's 88 year old Tante Sue runs things now that Fred has gone on to be with Jesus. She gets by with a little help from the Guillory family. Both places are a shed/shack/temple to good times and good drinking. Fred's 'rule' is no dancing or standing on the cigarette machine. They start at 10 am on a Saturday morning. Your liver is scared.

5. Flora-Bama Lounge and Package Store (Perdido Key near FL-AL state line) Don't go here if you don't like fun. Sure they might have a Jimmy Buffet-like acoustic guy... thing is, Buffet used to play and hang out. The place is PACKED to the hub with cute babes and young guys. The popularity of the place has it divided into 3 or 4 separate areas. There is a beach bar overlooking the Gulf, a club-dance section featuring the latest and classics in dance/country/club tunes. There's an inside rock bar with the usual cover band playing indy and rock standards. There's a mullet toss, sugar white beaches and emerald green water out back.

Bourdain is an alright guy. I've met him and drank with him. He's got a great gig and dream job. He's probably been to a couple of these places. Everybody has that great bar story or that 'cheers' joint where everybody knows your name. I don't care if it's a pool hall or an asphalt floor with a mechanical bull, bars are farking awesome. Now buy me a farking beer you cheapskate. I got the last round.

We can share what we got of yours, 'cause we done shared all of mine.

Poorlytoldjoke: I would be remiss if I didn't mention Betty's and the Surly Girl in Columbus Ohio, and The Comet in Cincinnati Ohio. All 4 great places to drink.


All four, eh?

flipping channels, I came across the show "Bar Rescue"; host was wanting to bring in this "mixologist" girl to create some mashmallow-vodka/lime juice horror, some other douche to teach the regular bartenders to flip around bottles...
others can do as they like but if I walked in to my neighborhood bar and saw that crap... I would move.
I went in last weekend, sat at the end of the bar. Place was busy but the bartender waved at me. Minute later, he walked down, said hi, and slid me a glass of bourbon. I sat and read my book, he kept my glass filled until I told him goodnight, paid my tab and left.
that is how it should be.
