A note about--Dive Bars. . .

Really what can i say that hasn't been said...
Well-- if you (like me) love yourself some yummy, interesting, frilly, fancy cocktails-- don't go to a dive bar looking for these drinks-- that makes you an a-hole. Do that at a club where the bartenders dress in uniform and they enjoy flaming orange peels over hibiscus infused gin--preferably without a condescending sneer.
At a dive bar order a Greyhound, Cape Codder, screwdriver, a rum and coke, a gin and tonic, beer and a shot or whatever your "anyone can make this' go to drink. If your friendly neighborhood dive bar representative doesn't know a Greyhound is grapefruit juice and Gin or vodka inform them gently and tip them generously (hell you just got twice as much booze for half the cost of that fancy place... why not tip them?).
