April 16/365 Friday Nights at Murphy’s

I once flirted with alcoholism and a bartender named Bob. Kai and I were regulars at Murphy’s, in Old Town. Bob, a dancing bear of a man, hovered near us, always filling our glasses, and lighting our cigarettes. Take two smart unhappy people, add alcohol, and let the banter go. It was better than sex would have been.

  1. If this is the Murphy’s in Alexandria, I’ve been there several times. It was our favorite bar in town when we lived there in the 80s and early 90s. I don’t remember the bartender though.
