Found with 3 hours 20 minutes to go

PINT!!!

A review -

Yes. This is the dive of my dreams. Obscure location? Check. Random assortment of all walks of life? Check. Karaoke? Check. Cheap beer? Check. Smoky atmosphere? Check. Christmas themed? Who doesn't love that? Only Scrooges don't love that.

As for me - I love you Santa!

So this place is legit yo! It is located over near the wasteland near the fairgrounds and may take you a second to find it depending on which way you are coming. But when you see the double wide covered in graffiti then you know you've found it. Parking is not plentiful, but people were blocking up the right hand lane on the road to park. Oh and don't worry, you can leave your car there overnight if you are over served.

You are gonna be over served. Might as well take a cab. Because those beers are $2. PBR is $1.50 if you are a hipster (extra 50 cents saves $$ for skinny jeans and knit hats and CDs of people no one has ever heard of...). Reminder it is CASH ONLY so bring some money honey and get to drinking. No tabs and no credit cards means that you won't have to do the walk of shame back to the bar the next day to get your card. Yay!

The people in there were all over the board and it changed as the night went on. Initially it was all hard core regulars, mostly over the age of 40 and maybe even some 60s plus. There was also a ugly Christmas sweater party in the room with the pool table, looked like someone "reserved" it. And by that I mean they may have called ahead or they may have gotten there early, set up snack trays, and took over. I am not sure.

Then karaoke started up. The crowd shifted some to 30s-40s people with karaoke jams on tap. These people knew their songs and knew how to work the crowd. Good singer or bad singer, who cares? There may have been some off duty strippers there on dates. There was also a totally non-descript couple who could belt out the old 80s rock and pop. Then, weirdly, as the night went on this place got PACKED OUT with what appeared to be an onslaught of college kids? But everyone was fun, the karaoke was rocking, and it was insanely festive. Fucking awesome actually.

So I am SO PLEASED I finally made it to this bar. This is EXACTLY up my alley. Divey goodness with karaoke mixed in. I WILL BE BACK SANTA!!
