It might be the coolest bar I've ever been to. Everyone sits where there is a chair making it more social than every other watering hole, and they have their own beer: You get it either dark or light.

Enjoy, and I want details from the trip.

I do love NY.

wow,.....i'm deff into this,.....i'll make sure to do so,...and take lots of pictures,....

righttrack,....i'm sure i'll make a homeless friend,....i seem to have an affinity for them as i end up makeing friends with them in every major city i've ever been in, all started with mack, who i met in old blue bar down in south dallas,....when i was a kid i remember my mother tellin me i had no business in south dallas (its kinda a rough part of town), but there's all these great old beer joints where people like stevie ray vaughn and lightening hopkins used to play, as a soon as i was old enough to drive i started sneakin in and hangin out,......
mack is an old black man, and kinda a fixutre around dallas' seedier side,.....but he rescued me one night when i was gettin hasseled,....made these fellas leave me alone,....and we've been friends ever since,.....almost 8 years now,.....there's a few places he stays, but normally its the bridge over by fairpark,...and if i cant find him all i have to do is stop and ask another homeless person, or a cop, if they've seen mack
i try and seem him atleast once a month and trade him food for his company nd stories,.....that man has some wonderful stories,.....


i'm really lookin forward to new york
i changed my mind; i changed my mind;now i'm feeling different

all that time, wasted
i wish i was a little more delicate
