I keep writing the same essay in different ways, and it’s just not coming out right. So here’s the short version.
What is the future of bars in America? Nearly all the development that goes on, at least in suburban southern California, is track housing and strip malls. And strip malls, in their efforts to be “family friendly”, don’t have bars. Older parts of town have them, new ones don’t.
The two exceptions to this seem to be a) the family “bar & grill” restaurant franchise, which sort of have bars in the middle (e.g. Applebees), and b) the sports bar.
Sorry, this question’s been digging away at me for days. What do y’all think?
