    Yuppies Are Killing the Dive Bar
    By Alexander Nazaryan
    Filed: 9/1/14 at 7:19 AM

    I don’t really like dive bars, but I am always sad when one closes. I prefer to drink in a clean, well-lighted place where I don’t have to watch Yankees highlights or listen to the discomfiting political ideas of ancient barflies. But many others like the dimness, and the sweating bottles of Budweiser, and talking sports with someone they don’t know and never will, except for the duration of one boozy evening.

    “I don’t really like dive bars, but I am always sad when one closes.”

    What a silly attitude.

    BTW, if you want to read this article without getting the “you have read your 5 free articles for this month” popup, delete “?piano_d=1” from the link above and paste into your browser.

    Just removed that extra bit of code from the link. I assume it was leftover from the original site feed that linked to the article.

    Cookie-based paywalls can also easily be worked around with Incognito Mode (Chrome), Private Window (Firefox) or Private Browsing (Safari).
