The world is going to shit, And Penn State is doing well in basketball. Not saying they are connected, just saying...
The lounge is something I don't get. I usually feel like a fish out of water in one of them. I went to one Saturday night for a friends birthday. Now, I had a good time, but those type of places aren't my vibe. I get there, get looked over like I had to be dressed right, and warned about my sneakers. I go down to the lounge and it's that, to me, scam called "bottle service". $200+ so a group gets one bottle of vodka that costs $20 at most, but also a cubicle to hang in. I don't get it, but that's me. Also lounges that charge a ton for imported beer (none of that dirty domestic stuff), it better came directly from it's country of origin.
My vibe is a bar that is either named after an Irish person, or has at least one Irish person behind the bar. I prefer that person to be bitter, the more the better-means it's an established spot and been there for generations. And the entire place is all wood, I want to feel like I'm in a fire trap. It has to be simple:decent selection of beer, some hard liquor, and the feeling that it's common people.
That's if I go to a bar. I hate drunks, and the more one drinks around me, the less patience I have with them.
