Well it's 5 o'clock where I am, assuming it is where you're enjoying your cocktail. So yeah, you talked me into fixing myself one.

 

Cheers to you!!! @sherrikay

I've read a book in a bar while my husband played cards. I've also had drinks at a bar. One is far more satisfying.

That's weird!

 

I have seen this several times.

A nice way to spend a leisurely time to themselves.

And also maybe a little less feeling awkward about sitting in a bar by themselves. Not wanting to seem lonely but just enjoying themselves.

Before COVID my husband traveled for work a lot. He often went to restaurants alone. It's awkward so I could see someone reading while waiting for dinner or anything for that matter.

Enjoying a glass of Nero d'Avola and listening to local talk radio.

 

Anyone else having wine?
