Sometimes you wanna go where the bartender knows your name. And sometimes when you get there, you find that they’ve replaced the smattering of intimate tables with three large ones covered in butcher paper; that the paintings by local artists have been taken down and the lights turned up; and that the spot where jazz musicians used to perform is now home to a shiny silver jukebox. Karaoke and Ladies’ Nite are the only things on the menu since the kitchen has closed, but the somewhat older crowd of regulars firmly planted at the bar seems unfazed by any change. They make sporadic conversation with each other about the game on the bar’s TV and about the last time they were all here. Yet for all the changes that claimed most of Archer’s character, the couch remains a comfortable spot to have a drink and read, or study, or do anything else that requires little distraction. And, the bartender still knows your name.
