What are the worst bars in New York? [more inside]
I'd like some tips on nice, down to earth, mixed-group, unpretentious, laid back bars in Baltimore and/or Washington, DC. If you happen to know Brooklyn (NY, not MD), Moe's in Fort Greene would be the perfect example. I'm thinking music that's heavy on the not-so-obvious 70s and 80s R&B, rare grooves, funk, with a dash of reggae and jazz; a crowd that tends to be ethnically diverse; the drinks aren't at Financial District prices; and (perhaps most importantly) where ex-suburban gentrifiers would feel kind of out of place at. I realize I could very well be asking for the impossible. [more inside]

I was in a bar the other night and the bartender passed out a poker chip to everybody in the house, which was, I found out, how the bartender or bar owner buys a round for everybody. I never saw this before. How widespread is this tradition (a round on the house via passing out a token to everybody?)

Inspired by this New Orleans drinking post, but not ready to commit to making my own, I must know: Where in the San Francisco Bay Area can I order a Sazerac? (If you can tell me of a bar that makes them in Oakland, I’ll buy you one.)

(protein bar filter) looking for advice on a protein bar with some strict guidelines. [more inside]
Are protein bars really a good substitute for a meal? So many seem loaded with sugar and calories and they're certainly packaged to resemble candy bars. I'd be grateful if someone could let me know whether these bars are nutritionally sound and if they are, which ones you'd recommend in terms of taste and food "value."

WhoDeyFilter: I'm in Chicago, on the northside. My buddy is visiting from Cincinnati this weekend, and I want to take him to a bar on Sunday to watch the Bengals' game (our CBS affiliate is showing "Showstopper American Dance" instead). There are lots of bars that have NFL Sunday Ticket, but I want to make it an experience and find a place that is Bengals-specific. There must be one. What is it called and where is it? And I thank you. [more inside]
Pulling girls in bars: how do you do it? I don't think I know how. The two or three times I have they've kissed me first. I'm more used to getting into relationships - sometimes even just asking "can I kiss you? I think you're lovely" after a date - but want some of the late-night stranger-kissing that all the bar guys get. How do you turn cheery bar conversation into cheery bar smooching?

The Global Cocktail Challenge. For absolutely no other reason than the fact that we are able to, my better half & I have decided to try & sample some of the best cocktails in the best bars in the world. The only rule is to have the signature cocktail for the location or bar we are in. So far the Singapore Sling in Raffles was probably one of the worst drinking experiences of my life.
