Bucket List Bars
What's on your bucket list? Mine entails having a cocktail at Elixir in San Francisco and visiting most, if not all, the bars in Dr. Clint Lanier and Derek Hembree’s new book, Bucket List Bars: Historic Saloons, Pubs and Dives of America. Drop into Warren Tavern, in Charlestown, Massachusetts, one of the country’s oldest original taverns. Clint and Derek strongly recommend a Sam Adams – a fitting brew while amidst the historic setting. Chicago is home to many a great bar, but Green Mill is THE place to go. Famously recognized as Al Capone’s favorite hangout and personal speakeasy, Green Mill was originally a music and dance venue. Today, it’s a nod to the roaring 20s, home to amazing jazz performances. New York and Los Angeles coverage is hurried, but overall Bucket List Bars is a great buy – available for $17.
