Are y'all a bunch of barflies?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Blowing Bubbles : One Thread
Do you spend a lot of time in bars? Do you go to dance, drink, or just hang out? Is it all of the above? Or would you rather be shot than go to a bar?
As you probably already know, i spend a significant amount of time sipping drinks at bars because of going to see George play all the time. However, in all honesty, i'm not much of a bar person anymore, and neither is George. Ironic, no?
If it wasn't for the band, neither one of us would be very inclined ot go out to a bar unless it was a once in a blue moon type of thing. We're both more of the type to enjoy staying in and having friends over, or going over to someone else's house.
Ahh, the life of a musician and his girlfriend. Bar city, here we come.

I enjoy bars. I like dance clubs, I like smoky blues joints, I like Irish pubs. I like being around the people and the energy and the music and the alcohol and the noise.
But only when I'm in the mood for it. I get in the mood fairly often, but I couldn't be a barfly, spending every night parked on a stool.
Still, when I crave that electricity, I'll get in my car and go.

i love pubs, but i hate clubs. i love going to the Brickskeller her ein DC where they have over 800 diffeent kinds of beer from aroudn the world--as well as good scotch. I love goign to the Four Provinces of Ireland and listening to the McTaggerts sing Irish songs and clapping and singing along between games of darts.
That doesn't mean i go out that often.
Now i want a Guinness. Thanks a lot, Sherry! ;)

I'm sorry, eight HUNDRED types of beer?!
Then again with that much beer variety maybe i could finally find an Irish beer that i like, since i haven't had much luck thus far. I really only like Tartan from Scotland if i'm going for the imported beer. Generally i'll just stick with Labatt Blue and occasionally other local beer like Sleemans. I'll also drink Bud, but usually only with friends who purchase a case of it.
These days though, i've really been avoiding beer in bars. I go for either Black Russian or Bloody Cesars instead. Bonus: i don't have to pee twice an hour.
Oh, and i will never have a craving for Guiness unless it's because i want to re-tar my roof. ;)

I like tit bars with loud music, hot babes with nothing or almost nothing on and lots of smoke. I pound down the drinks and just have a great time.
