Well, I have a new home away from home. JJ's Lounge. I'm bartending there 3 times a week now and it's my first real job since I had Kalynn. It's a very mellow local's dive bar. Everyone who goes there has been a customer for years. I'm absolutely the new kid on the block, but everyone has been more than welcoming. The other bartenders have been happily showing me the ropes and I'm hoping to make a few new friends out of the deal.
The bar itself has been here since the 70's and has always been owned by the same man. (who is now in his 80's) He has a love for the original marquee, so the outside looks just the same as it did 40 years ago.
The inside has been remodeled quite a bit since its opening. With high ceilings and tall bar stools, I feel about 3 feet tall when I walk around.
There are 3 newly felted regulation sized pool tables
And of course, lots of booze!
This is where I stand all day long:
The outside beer garden has lots of tables with an amazing view of the Rocky Mountains
There's even a couple of horseshoe pits
