Dive Bar

Posted on 2007/02/03 05:06:32 (February 2007).

[Thursday 1st February]
Another generally tedious day at the office here in California, although it was punctuated with a nice lunch with a technical writer - a new friend I had made the previous week.

I had made plans to go out for a few drinks with some people from work later on in the evening, which meant I had a solitary dinner in my hotel room rather than the usual meal out.

So later on in the evening I went to what the locals affectionately refer to as a "dive bar" - the place one of my colleagues had proposed to meet up at. I had seen this place before, and it looked pretty scary from the outside, but once inside it was actually really nice. I was the first of the group to arrive, and whilst sitting there I got talking to a guy who turned out to be the lead singer of a band called Flexx Bronco (or go and see his MySpace page if you're into that sort of thing). We had a chat about music and all that. Just like every good up and coming rockstar, he was hoping to make it big in Japan.

Eventually the people from work turned up, and it turned into a bit of a long night.

Anyway, it was a great bar - just goes to show you shouldn't write a place off at face value!

I might have missed something in that page of that rockstar friend of yours, he put a song that it's clearly not his work, so I wonder if there is some sort of hidden meaning to it all... Oh well...

Why do they call it a "dive bar", John? You said that the locals call it this "affectionately". Is it because it looks like a dive but isn't so in reality? Just wondered...
