    • 1548 Words
    • 7 Pages

    Dive bars are broadly defined as a shabby and disreputable establishment—essentially the lowest of quality drinking establishments. Though there are numerous guides to Boston’s “best dive bars,” this complicates the definition of what exactly constitutes what makes a bar a “dive”. If a dive bar is always shabby and seedy, is it possible to be “the best” in being the worst? If so, would the award for the best dive bar actually go to the worst? Many of these common standards that define a dive bar are a series of contradictions. For instance, a bar could have a jukebox, or have no music at all.

He's doesn't push a revamped LinkedIn profile or a lifestyle brand. He's authentic, and he abounds in dive bars, the perfect place for a young artist looking for a story to…

    The bar is quiet. I mean, not that it isn’t always quiet – what with us beingthe third dive bar on the one street, which is really just a mesh of Trost nightlife that spreads out five blocks in either direction, which makes the competition more than tough on a good day – but tonight is practically empty. We usually have a couple regulars who slump over the bar from sundown to sunrise, but today there are more stools empty than occupied. Maybe there’s a game on? But that wouldn’t explain why…

    The Late Fowl Analysis

    • 1719 Words
    • 7 Pages

    The Late Fowl. What a name. Such a name evokes images of worn establishment, either in the middle or at the corner of a block of other equally worn local businesses. It would distinguished from the others by a tired irish green crest of a sign, it’s name in an old, tired yellow imitation of gold lettering.
