My favorite bar & grill, that I have been going to for 25+ years, has less than a month remaining.
Many memories are cloudy, some due to youth and some due to their choice libations, but Waters has marked many an occasion.
2 St. Patricks Days, 3 New Years, and at least 5 of my own birthdays.
The one-pitcher-of-every-tap night, the night that chairtomorrow ordered milk and we left a note from Dr Bananas, the "happy birthday fuckface" ice cream cake, countless melodramatic sojourns with countless friends & family. Cindy. The Bens! Cribbage in the corner and the world's best (though I never had it) clam chowder. A marriage proposal, though not my own. I even made a CD of the tunes we always played on their crappy, intermittent jukebox.
boo. boo I say. and boo again.
