I would officially like to rename this blog.
It is no longer the building of a bar.
It is no longer the building of a bar business, though that will be covered at length I am sure.
This is Star Bar, a day in the life.
From this point forward it will be the story of the bar, as articulated (or not) by me. This will, of course, allow for a lot of biased opinion and conjecture… and I am fine with that.
Sherwood Anderson, one of the great American fiction writers, when asked about the “untruths” in his auto-biography, said roughly “I am a fiction writer. How true would I be to myself and my craft if I did not write my auto-biography as fiction?”
I am a bartender and owner. How true to my craft would I be if I did not exaggerate, elaborate for the sake of entertainment, or just plain make things up?
I am not big on the making things up… but this is not about me it is about my bar, Star Bar, and it has a story to tell.
Or not… it is an inanimate object after all.
So stay tuned.
