What was the gin and tonic like Abhorrent. Okay, that was mean. Let’s just call it sub-par

The Joint A strange confused place. It has the front of a sports/Irish Bar- long bar and tight area with tables. But in the back was a place for dancing, for boogying, for getting down with yu bad self. And to make sure that you had the realization that this was a dancing joint, there was a disco ball emitting many colored lights across the walls and the patrons. There were strings of lights around the place blaring opposition to a joint that felt like a  sports bar, a bar to watch the game in. And the bartender who felt like the owner truly wanted a sports bar. On the TV was the NFL Network’s rebroadcast of the Pats – Ravens play-off game. So what was this place. Pretty empty is what it was. Four at the bar and three at a table.

General Impressions The bartender (owner?) finished with getting me my drink (he was attentive and speedy, no problems there) and went to our side of the bar (the paying customer side) and sat with a buddy. He said he wished that the NFL was still going on. He talked about the Super Bowl, where the Pats won, dontcha know. He said there was a lot of people in then. And thank god the Pats won because all those people would have left right away if they had lost. With them winning all the folks stayed till close. They just kept on buying drinks and celebrating. And then the bartender (owner?) said “I wish we had a night like that every month. That would be great.” I am not a businessman, but let me say that hoping for a monthly Super Bowl win to generate liquor sales is a bad business plan. Get a crowd and then do better with a good sporting event. Not the other way around. It does not bode well for them. But what do I know. I am the idiot who pledged to have a gin and tonic in every bar in the second largest city in New England, my judgement should not be considered valid.

Amount of Time in the Joint 10 minutes

Will I come back No
