Here is a link to my review of the Backstretch Saloon, which came out in today's paper.
As far as neighborhood dive bars go, the Backstretch ranks pretty high in my opinion.
Any of you been there? If so, it's probably because you live there.
The first time I went, a woman was talking about how she had to get surgery the next day.
The bartender told her she probably shouldn't be drinking. But she said she'd never be able to sleep without a few cold ones.
