It's a big day here in the neighborhood: Trackside Tavern is re-opening its' hallowed doors after suffering a heart-breaking fire January 20, 2009.
If you happen to have a bar that you can call home, you can imagine how displaced you'd feel if it was destroyed, leaving you without that particular touchstone that centers your social routine. Oh, you'd frequent other local places and run into the other sad refugees, people you got to know in the sadlly-passed watering hole that was your collective beehive. But you'd always go back to chatting about the old place, wouldn't you?
So, now, we Trackers can resume our seats at the bar and talk about NEW times.
Cheers to all us who have a regular bar stool where a cold one gets poured as soon as you walk in. And in my case, a joint,where dart players eagerly await the next game.
Good on ya, Doc!!
