Where have all the dive bars gone?

    Not entirely related but it sucks balls the College Inn closed down. Most unique spot on the Ave and all I need is Mac and Jacks on tap.

    You can go to a Denny's if that's all you need.

    Cheep brew, quality jukebox, shuffleboard, pool, popcorn, favorite dive bar ever is on the border of Oakland and Berkeley, the Kingfish. Used to go when I was there for work, even opened and closed it once. It was going to be torn down for condos, and I heard they moved the building (actually, more of a shack) to a new location...any NoCali dawgs familiar?

    When I lived in the greater Seattle area I was up north, would go to the Madison Ave Pub in south Everett. Pool, cheap beer and burgers. Also played pool at O'Finnegan's Pub on 99 just north of the 405 access.

    So many others that I know do not exist any more it is sad. Had a friend that made jewelry at a little place next to Teddy's on 65th. Many a night closing that place and Dante's. I lived just a couple blocks from Dante's across the street from the Porsche dealership. Oh yeah - the Blue Moon - sure that is there still.

    Was a dive place on Lake City Way - about where the Toyota dealership is now, on our way to a game one Saturday morning stopped, drank tons of beer and ate pickled eggs. Those damn eggs you could dribble down court they were so old. About half time me and my friends could have cleared an entire section of the stadium. We played it cool and blamed the group in front of us.

    Some of my shitholes...

    Al's Tavern in Wallingford
    Pacific Inn Fremont
    The Rez for @Swaye
    The Baranof in Greenwood
    The Green Lantern

    I bought kegs from the Green Lantern (Wallingford, not Walla Walla) back in college.

    Is Linda's on Capitol Hill still around?

    Lake City Way has grimy shitholes, but they are probably all out of business after this COVID bs.

    Great spot in Purdy called Local Boys. Chinsane beer selection and 40 taps.

    That weird 12 wood carving out front, is, disconcerting. Not bad burgers.
