What is a bar-gument, you say? For as long as there have been watering holes, there have been disagreements. Some people prefer martinis with gin, some with vodka. Bar-guments is here to settle some longstanding bar conflicts once and for all.
THIS WEEK: Which is more important--a clean bar seat, or a clean bathroom?
Do I appreciate a tidy bathroom at a bar? Absolutely. But I don't select a watering hole based on the cleanliness of the room where I'm going to spend the least amount of time. Getting ranch on my jeans after sliding in a booth or my skirt sticking to a barstool because someone spilled a fruity martini on it an hour earlier is not OK. No matter how disgusting the bathroom is, you can usually work around the filth, but unless you want to stand all night, a clean chair is a must.--Dana Kavan
