Every bar should have a “thing.” My very favourite bar, Burp Castle in the East Village of Manhattan, is themed like a monastery; the bartenders wear monks’ robes and gently shush the patrons to keep the noise down. My local Brooklyn bar, High Dive, isn’t quite so distinctive, but it serves popcorn and has pinball in the back and a chalkboard in the front where patrons can put money on each others’ tabs.

The only thing more divine than floating around in a pool on a hot summer's day is floating around in a pool with a refreshing beverage. But once you're settled in your doughnut shaped floatie, the last thing you want to do is get out to refresh your beverage. Luckily, The Kitchn has a cheap and easy solution for this summertime sadness: All you need is some pool noodles.
When some people go on holiday they bring back magnets or postcards. I bring back booze. For a long time I was just bringing back beer to give as gifts or share with friends, but that eventually evolved to spirits as well. When I went to Scotland earlier this year my home whisky collection ended up getting a huge upgrade.
There's a bar in my neighbourhood that has a huge sign up that says "No Frosty Glasses" on it, presumably because people would ask for beer in one. While the idea of banning frozen glasses might seem like a stunt by a hipster bar, there's actually a lot of good reasons to not drink your beer out of a frozen glass.
