Okay, I kind of threw this one out earlier and didn't get a response.  Are there honky tonks in Boston?


Here (DC) the Hony Tonks are outside the city, but there are some great dive bars downtown.

I could definately do without honky tonks while I am in law school, I don't see myself going out a lot.

Country music is so popular I am sure there's one in just about every city in the North.

Remember, a bar is open to do one thing, and one thing only, sell alcohol.  The owner usually doesn't care about the format as long as people come in and drink.

I have heard that country bars have a hard time making as much money as other bars because people typically show up and just line dance.

Hmm, interesting. It is alnost the opposite here. People line dance of course, but all of the country places I go to make a killing in alcohol. More people drink than dance.

1. I suspect that we eat a lot more venison in the North than people in the south.  My high school, for instance, got two days off for deer season (first day of buck season is mandatory in PA, or it was at least).

2. There are plenty of honky tonks in the north, just not in the cities.  My parents live 5 minutes from one.

3. It's become cheaper to have someone else change your oil.  Plus they lube your chassis (which is sexy!).  It's a pain if you don't have all the good tools to do all that yourself.  and when you can get it done for 12 dollars, it just becomes pointless to do it yourself unless you enjoy it.

4. I am so ready for elk meat.  I've been told many times about its supreme tastiness, but I've never been so lucky as to receive a bite of it.

I'll lube your chassis, you sexy beast.

My chassis is still sore from being lubed this morning, but I will keep this coupon and use it later.
