I just wanted to share something from Craig Calcaterra’s Wednesday newsletter:

I’m not gonna Google it but I bet that, someplace in the United States, there’s a bar called “P.J. Higgins.” It bills itself as an Irish bar, and yeah, they have Guinness on tap, but when you walk in it has big TVs with sports playing all the time, all kinds of Bud Light and Coors light signs and posters and crap, and the best-selling item on the menu comes in “popper” form, just like 90% of the bars in this God forsaken country.

I’m going to say Calcaterra is likely wrong. The bar is probably called “P.J. O’Higgins.” Otherwise, it’s exactly like he describes it.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
