Those of us who drink usually have a favorite bar. Armand’s on Liberty Avenue in Little Italy is my favorite bar.
Now I really don’t know what the term “dive bar” means. I’m guessing it means a neighborhood bar that does not cater to an upscale clientele. If that’s what “dive bar” means then Armand’s is a dive bar. And that’s okay with the Old Soldier.
Why do I like Armand’s?
It opens around 10:00 a.m. Monday through Saturday and a little later on Sunday. I may be retired, but I usually start blogging early in the morning. By 10:00 a.m. the Old Soldier is ready for a drink at Armand’s.
I like Little Italy, the neighborhood Armand’s is in. I like the low price of a Pabst Blue Ribbon draft, can of beer or a six-pack. I like the clientele. In the morning the only customers in Armand’s are a couple of other retirees or a couple of people who work the night shift (or someone for one reason or another doesn’t have to work that day). Then the lunch crowd drifts in and the customers get younger.
I like to sit on a stool up front next to the window so I can gaze out at Liberty Avenue. I always have a notebook and pens with me. I sip my beer, watch the avenue and think deep thoughts about life and death and writing…
When I want to rock ‘n’ roll and mingle I go to another dive bar: Nico’s in Little Italy for Saturday night karaoke. But that’s another story.
Hello hello hello, my brother and sister readers and writers of erotic flash fiction! The high will be around 72 in Pittsburgh today and we might get some rain.
Earlier today the Old Soldier published the erotic domination, submissive flash fiction story “A Blowjob And A Promise” by Donya Petrock. I was going to publish the story tomorrow. I changed my mind. I also changed my mine about not having featured posts on the front page. “A Blowjob and A Promise” will be on the front page for several days. You don’t want to miss it.
