The Bar Zorba’s
The Address 97 Stafford Street
The Day and the TIme 3:45 on a Friday
The price 6.96. Really? Six dollars and ninety six cents? This is the sign you are not partaking at a neighborhood bar and at a restaurant, you get mashugana prices for your drinks. I want a place that would charge me seven bucks. Actually, I would like a place to charge me four bucks, but either way, rounded off prices, please.
Did they ask me if I wanted a lime No, she just put it in. Yah!!!!!!
What was the type of gin Well
What was the gin and tonic like It was in a pint glass and it was fine. Not much flavor, it was alright for what I ordered.
The Joint This big old restaurant has been Zorba’s for a while, though with the plastic front, to keep out the cold I think, it feels temporary. The bar is big. The music is classic Greek. It was what you expect from a bar/restaurant. Dark wood. Sports on the TV screens. This was still early on Friday, The hour was not happying yet. A few groups were sitting at the bar. Two women were talking about work, they were teachers, probably from Gates Lane, which is one parking lot away from Zorba’s. Another two some looked like they were on an early stage date. They were cuddly and rapt in each other’s eyes (cue romantic Bouzouki music, baby!)
General Impressions Its nice to have a neutral place to meet after work and complain and find common enemies. This seems like a fine, though undistinguished place for that. This is where the workers of nearby businesses can go have a beer or a drink and some humus. I am sure it can get thick around five after work ends for most.
Amount of Time in the Joint 15 minutes
Will I come back Probably not.
