Good.

Does that mean the rash of pretentious, self-important bartenders telling us how to drink their artisan leavings has passed as well? Has the manufactured scarcity of "exclusive" bars enjoyed a timely death? Can we skip the VIP room bullshiat, finally?

Because I haven't missed bars at all. Staying at home to enjoy a top-shelf tipple without having the price quintuple because the bar has a one-word name in neon and the bartender has a beard on his face & a chip on his shoulder and the local mob isn't demanding a cut from the VIP "patrons" chugging Patron even as the booze itself has more water than whiskey in it has been an unmitigated joy.

Are VR bars the way of the future? I'm starting to think that Ready Player One might actually be an accurate portrayal of what the future may look like... except everyone in the real world will look like an extra from Wall-E
