Best bar in North America

Why is the bar tilted?

After years of dreaming about it, I finally got to visit ‘his’ bar. I’ve made the trek to visit his home and even his grave but I had never made it to his bar. When i walked in the door, it was everything I had hoped for and more. The bar is tilted at an insane angle due to the earthquake over a hundred years ago and the same tables that historic figures like Robert Louis Stevenson, famed author of the classic adventure book, Treasure Island sat at are still here. Let me say that again, I sat and drank at the same table as the guy that wrote Treasure Island. Click on the photo to read the whole story.

  1. Next time I we go to California, we’re taking you and your wife with us! You have a way of peeling back the skin of an area to find many interesting (and fun) layers.

    • We generally have a pretty good time wherever we go (not right at the moment, right now we are giving each other the cold shoulder but that’s marriage sometimes and it will only last 5 minutes). When are you going to do some guest blogging on my main site? We’d love to have you!

      • With two college bound teenagers and a slow economy, my travels have been curtailed quite a bit. Once I get our daughter settled in at the University of Southern California next fall I’m going to start breathing and traveling again. I promise you a guest post then! I am thrilled that you asked.

  2. With two college age kids I bet your pretty busy! My main goal is to attract bloggers who want to brag about their local area because I am completely convinced that the best travel advice comes from locals folk. And we’ve discovered the most amazing places that only the people that live close by know about. So, if you find yourself with some free time and you want to tell us all a little about where you live, you’re more than welcome. PS – and if it’s of any interest to you, I help bloggers monetize their posts and they keep 100% of all the proceeds they earn.
