Speaking of drunk driving, the good ole day's of the 60's when the drinking age was 18 in New York.
Head out on Friday or Saturday night and start through North Bennington to Five Flies on 67A at 8PM and make the circuit through Hoosick Falls and race to beat the last call at Carl's at 2AM... Now how many people here wound up in that pond behind Carl's trying to catch one of those duck's?
Walk out of a bar these days and fart and they'll cuff you for some lame $ss ordinance. Drunks are noisy, its their job and has been for centuries.

This is not a new bar only new owners and new name. I have not been there but it sounds like it has been transformed to draw a new kind of crowd and instead of everyone standing on the front sidewalk smoking the owner made it possible for them to smoke out back outta sight from the public eye. The new owner seems to want to help ease the tensions between his neighbors give him a chance before you condemn him.

In the 21st century one is no longer allowed to let off a little steam after working a 10-12 hour day. Its straight home, where you are allowed 1 drink before dinner or none at all. After dinner you reinforce your depression of the day by watching the evening news and then retire for the evening by going to bed. Relaxation and fun are not an option in our world anymore thanks to 21st century law.
All mind altering substances are to be prescribed by your doctor's, when they tell you your blood pressure is through the roof along with your cholesterol level..
Now this may be LIFE for some of you, but after a long day of work my $ss is going to be at the bar unwinding. With moderation of course as I wouldn't want to break any of these Socialist laws we now have in place and that includes urinating on the sidewalk on my way to the car.

What a lonely disgusting old man you show yourself to be. Do you really shovel pavement all day and then drink and smoke weed to sleep at night? There is a better way to make a living and counseling is available!

Just had my insurance physical and thanks for your concern... Shocked the hell out of the doctor too.
Work about 70 hours a week, workout at the club 3 times a week and party my $ss off. Try it Tinker Bell, they have machines and weights just for you girls.... Just don't show up in your tights as it may cause people to treat you like you really are... Go to counseling as often as possible and my regular bartender tells me I'm doing just great. As for lonely, I think not Tinker Bell. Your the one stalking women on the internet and trying to hunt and peck with one hand on the key board....

I hate drunks and always will! Never had any use for them and could care less what happens to them! They bring on they're own problems and if it causes them problems they get what they paid for but when they start causing me or anyone else problems it's time for them to go! The police should issue citations to the bar and patrons any chance they get! This is a quality of life issue and wrong in many ways! These people are at bars like this because they can't act like that anywhere else! Nothing good can come out of letting this situation exsist!

Oh, a blast from the past from the bloviating beast of east bennville.

Found this looking at a story about the old race trace where the Five Flies used to be. Can't find a picture of the Five Flies. Curious on whether it was actually what I remembered.

KY, where have you been?

Out flying on your private jet?(chuckles)

Out on your yacht in Key West?(guffaws)

Where have you been hiding, puzsey girly-boy?

Tell us more about those things you've never done and the places you've never been.

Oh, this just keeps getting better!

KY, you need to make it harder to fck with you. These softball (sorry to bring up your inadequacies, but it's just an expression) setup posts make it just too easy to mock you.

Now if you ever grow a nut and decide to come to my house, I will certainly entertain you here. Show up any time you'd like. It would change my opinion of you that you are just a bumin licking puzsey boy wuffurd blowhard like your daddee.

C'mon, Kiel, exceed expectations by approaching humanlike behavior. Try it, you might like it better than being the puzsey boy that you are.

Zelda,

Do you like big hairy guys as much as Kiel?

Do you like it when we stick our pekkirs in your azz as much as Kiel does?

If you do, why don't you come on down when Kiel comes on his FREQUENT visits? As we bears say in Key West, when it 'comes' to guys in the hot tub, the more the merrier!

Hope to see you at bear fest next year!

That is nothing to be ashamed of Kiel. You are just taking after your daddee.

Except he likes it when he has donkey pekkirs in his azz. You like it with donkey pekkirs, but really like big hairy guys putting pekkirs in your azz and giving you their man juice.

Nothing to be ashamed of Kiel. Come on down to Key West (where you go all the time -- and where we come in your azz all the time) and we will console you by putting our pekkirs in your azz again. You like that so much, especially when we give you our man juice!
