Quarters.

They have always had meaning in our lives. As children, we begged our mothers at the supermarket, seeking treasure in the gum ball machine. We pleaded for them at the pizza parlor for a round or two at Street Fighter. Sadly, after the joy of adolescence the twenty-five cent piece became the currency of hygiene. Coveted change tightly held; crinkled dollars exchanged; early morning queues for a roll at the bank. The quarter was reduced to the ammunition for battling brown stains in the name the of maintaining societal harmony.

This week, the World Dive Bar Tour is pleased to partake in shameless nostalgia [latfh] as we visit Blipsy Barcade. Once known as Miss T’s Barcade, this week’s stop features a dozen 80’s arcade games, a few pinball machines, $4 scotch and soda and the return of the quarter as the currency of joy. Bring cash. Bring quarters. Leave your adult burdens at the door. An extra life is just a token away.

As usual, the casual debauchery starts around 9PM and gets really interesting by 10:00. Come for one drink, or stay for one too many. Bring anyone and everyone, and join us for a great time in the middle of the week. If you arrive early or late, look for the people having a damn good time (it’ll be us), or start having a damn good time on your own and we’ll find you.

Carpe Drink’em,

The World Dive Bar Tour is your bi- weekly, Wednesday night stop for adventure, drinks, and professional networking in Los Angeles. 2012 will offer an eclectic lineup of seedy and swanky joints to soften your liver and relax your inhibitions, and an in-your-face assortment of auxiliary events, just in case 25 different bars in one year wasn't enough.
