One Of Those Dive Bars

Chicago April 2013 5

I mentioned the American concept of dive bars in yesterday's post. Well, here's one. Last weekend in Chicago, son Andy, in all pictures, and his fiancee Claire, second and fourth pics, took me to meet a bunch of their friends at Danny's Tavern in Bucktown. It's dark, a bit run down, and serves extraordinary small-production American liquors. Andy is sipping some upscale rye whiskey. He got me started on it soon thereafter. They even got the old man into one of the photos.

Hope to start a new series tomorrow about one of our best annual photo-ops, the People's Joy Parade and Cinco de Mayo festival, if it doesn't get rained out. It felt like near summer when I got home from Chicago Wednesday but since then it's been cold and wet, wet, wet. There was snow in much of the Midwest yesterday.

Enjoying a glass of whisky while out shooting sounds like a good plan!

I'll go with a jigger of Irish whiskey too.

Wonderful family photos and certainly fun ones! I understand Claire is the mother-to-be? I imagine she's the one who drove you all home? :)
