Plan: when I go home for break in a few weeks, I will visit this bar, and I will spend way too much money and I will get a little bit too drunk. Could there possibly be better advertising than the series of photos in this slideshow? I doubt it.
The funny thing is, I have spent the overwhelming majority of my time since I’ve been of age in Chicago, not New York, and how often do I go out to bars here? Almost never. There was another, similar slideshow this week, for a South Loop bar, photography just as gorgeous, and why didn’t that one draw me like this one did? Maybe it’s that all of these were gin cocktails, sure, but maybe it’s that I’m already orienting myself back toward New York.
For those of you following along at home, start marking your scorecards every time I have to be reminded, oh but don’t get ahead of yourself.
