Hey Chris, this is my sister!
Hey Chris, this is my neighbor!
Hey Chris, this is my friend from Australia!
Hey Chris, this is someone that you don’t want to meet but I am introducing to you anyway!

Aaakh-bar, how I crawl into a hole during any social event I’ve ever gone to in my 20s and beginning in my 30s, except for the very few that I could honestly say that I ‘come out of my shell’ – and it usually involves me dancing a lot on your dance floor.

I am so socially antisocial (or antisocially social) that somehow I make friends. I not only love the divey vibe of Akbar, I PREFER the divey vibe, and the clientele are cool in my book. I don’t have to feel bad that I usually look scruffy, unpolished, have long hair, wear canvas shoes, smell like my bicycle, don’t shave the hair off the top of my tattoos often enough… because I know someone is always going to be hairier here.

I bike to you more than any other bar I go to. Surprisingly, considering this is the wicked gay hipster bar of the East, the bicycle racks are usually vacant. And somehow Aaakh-bar, I leave in a better mood than any other bar I ever go to. And I don’t even drink any of your boozy booze. It’s all dance floor here.
