Is it fair to call a dive bar cute? Is it the presence of the gays or the octo-whatever-gon shape or the actual diversity of clientele making the Drinkery so friendly? We’ll never figure out. What we do know is it’s got white Christmas lights hanging from the ceiling and the slight smell of urine near the ladies room grows on you. A snack machine in the corner only offers two rows of snacks, happy hour from 4-9 every day gives you two-for-one domestic bottles and/or two shots per rail drink, and the wood-and-Formica bar goes all the way around the tiny room, because what do you really want from a dive bar? A drink.
