    Wouldn’t a link to the King poll be appropriate here? Something like:

    Or even:

    Thanks, B. I meant to add that but I believe I might have been blogging much too early in the morning. It’s in the post now.

    It’s too hard to vote for one! It’s a three way tie for me, so I will have to skew the poll and vote three times. In random order they are:

    1) Cooper’s – because they have the best selection of beers on tap
    2) Roosevelt Ale House – because their bottle beer selection is great and they have good food that is beyond typical bar food
    3) The Reservoir aka ‘The Res” – because it is a classic dive bar and has a shuffle board table.

    Maple leaf has so many excellent places of business, I agree it’s hard to choose just one. Last night I just visited Hudson for the first time and it is also great. And while not technically a “bar,” I have always loved Maple Leaf Grill, not only for the food and drink, but for the special people that work there.
