Two beers at two really different bars
A few days ago, I had two beers at two radically different bars, and I wanna tell ya about it.
First I met a couple friends at (hehe) Friends in Fells Point. Some scooters were parked outside, and the usual troupe of punks/indie kids/rockers/skaters/preps were hanging out inside.
A Yuengling cost $3.50 but the bartender took his time. The food took its sweet time, too.
Then I headed to the new Luckie's Tavern (pictured) in Power Plant Live, where I ordered a Samuel Adams Oktoberfest. It cost $4.75 and came quick. Also in the bar was the usual troupe of young 20- and 30-something professionals.
Both bars annoyed me, but each for different reasons. I wasn't big on the service at Friends or the steep beer prices at Luckie's. It's obvious you're paying for the decor and service at Luckie's. Sometimes, I'm willing to make that trade.
