For fear of invoking the wrath of the tip goddess I hesitantly ask Philadelphia, how come dive bar visiting is so attractive this summer compared to summers past? Is it the smokey air, the new bartending partners, a cold beer on a hot summer night? I wish I had a formula to figure the bar conundrum out so that I could finally master the ebbs and flows out the uber fickle Philadelphia bar business.
Dive bar patrons it is time for a little informal PunkyMama focus group. What’s up folks? Why are you visiting the bar so much more this summer than summers past? May I add, please don’t stop coming. It is making work that much more fun.
I need to thank you all because I can do things like splurge on an hour or two of extra babysitters on Friday morning/afternoon. It is truly delightful. Sweet dreams. See you in dive barland.
