There is nothing more I love than a dive bar, and I’ve found my go to spot wherever I have lived. It started with the Local Shack in Chicago (unfortunately this has since closed and been replaced by a big sports bar), then on to Dive 75 in NYC (I spent a lot of nights here) and now one in Connecticut, Brennan’s. It has everything you need – great beers, a jukebox, darts, friendly bartenders, and a very non-descript entrance. See you there this winter!
PS – the picture on Friday was Otranto in Puglia. More on that later this week!
