Hemingway’s is a bar in Oakland in Pittsburgh one block away from the Cathedral of Learning of the University of Pittsburgh. So yes, at any time of day or night you might find a lot of students in the place. There are several students here now. I’ve been coming to this bar since I was a young man. Right now I’m drinking a $1.50 big draft beer. It’s around 3:30 pm and outside winter has come to the ‘Burgh. Elton John is on the juke box singing “Levon”, Heather is behind the bar serving beer, college basketball is on ESPN on the flat screen TVs over the bar and I’m putting words down on a note pad with pencil.
I’ll have a couple of beers and forget my troubles for awhile.
