Tonight the Back Door celebrates 30 years! I talked to owner John Dant about the bar business in a piece for Insider. I will definitely be in attendance and help celebrate the bar I consider home on Thursday happy hours ever since moving here in 1999.
The Unstable Table welcomed me with open arms and still meets up today. I’ve gotten to know the wonderful staff and regulars throughout the years — and they’ve seen me at my best and my worst.
Thank you, Back Door, for giving me a soft place to fall after a long workweek. And after some $1.30 Fireballs tonight, I might, indeed, be falling.
