The two things I am most proud of after working in a
German bar for a year are being able to carry three liters of beer in

German cuisine should be a must.
Jack Kerouac’s “Essentials of Spontaneous Prose,”
instructed one to write “as a jazz musician drawing breath between
out-blown phrases.” I like to imagine that jazz notes fit perfectly
in-between the spaces of each of our inhales and exhales.
LGBT communities are a second star to the right for many,
a place where one can feel safe, supported and free to enjoy whatever
types of cocktails they please. This collection of LGBT-friendly bars is
just a slice of such drinkeries the Queen City offers.
