The Lonely Bar
I love rooms with character. Frankie's Tiki Bar in Las Vegas is like a cross between Cheers & Gilligan's Island. The bartender knew every single person who came there, except me, of course. He wasn't sure about letting me in, but I was able to show him that I had permission from the owner. Once he was comfortable, everyone treated me like I'd been part of the group for ages.
The bar was empty, but there are little nooks & crannies off to the side. A couple relaxed in one booth, a pair of friends chatted in a corner. It may be morning in Las Vegas, but there's always someone who's just getting off their shift and needs some rum. It's a cool place to hang out, relax, and meet up with some friends. If you don't have any when you go in, you will when you come out.
