I probably go to more bars than you do

James reading. Andy and Shiloh listening. Kent* taking a photo (thanks kent).

Were I a drinker, Pacific Standard would my favorite place**. It's all Pacific Coast microbrews, it's cool, laid back, and has a rad back room for their reading series, Chin Music.

Let's all agree James and Ross Gay were great, but last lady was . . . who else cringed when she said she was going to read four more poems?

*Thanks to Kent, from whom I shameless stole this photo.

**however, Jackie's 5th Amendment would be my bar. It's full of old Brooklyn-ites, and the median age has got to hover around 55 to 60. It's pretty awesome.


  1. I believe that bar makes the 5th amendment sound like the amendment to pull of another woman's wig in a public environment without consequence.

  2. Nice. I wholeheartedly concur.I pick Floyd's NY or Clover Club as an end point for my evening constitutionals. In Manhattan I always and forever pick Trinity Place.
