I was never a big fan of going to bars and taverns with my friends in college.
First of all, you could throw down $8 for a single beer when I knew I could spend a few dollars more to get a six pack of craft beer from a local liquor store. It’s not that I don’t like alcohol, but I don’t appreciate paying a premium just so I can drink in public with my friends and associates. But the cost is not the only thing that keeps me out of bars. It’s also hard being around aggressive and loud drunks when you have so many alcoholics in your family in the first place. Why subject yourself to that when you have so many traumatic memories of experiencing it first hand? That’s what I tell people if they press me on my wish to avoid drinking at random dive bars and the like. How about we all head to the liquor store and buy a few cases of top shelf beer to enjoy on my back porch instead? But they want that “social experience” of being at a bar. In other words, they want to find willing participants for one night stands. Now that my favorite drug cannabis is legal recreationally in my state, there are cannabis cafes and bars opening at various places in our biggest cities. My friends dragged me to our city’s first cannabis cafe last week and now I’m heading over there again alone. It’s a wonderful place where you can bring your own weed or buy some from behind the counter. You can simply go to the cannabis cafe to unwind or try unique marijuana infused foods and beverages.
