    Minneapolis and St. Paul are great dive bar towns.

    awsome…fart, puke, fall down…then order another. Toothless babes that love you (after a few) no matter how you smell. Serious casual no doubt

    Nothing like a good ol' local dive. If you're ever in Mira Loma, CA you gotta check out the Horseshoe Lounge. If you get hungry, they got a burger and a pizza joint next door, when you're wanting more than popcorn, jerky or pork rinds. They even have a hitchin' post outside for yer steed. The parking is truck friendly. Oh, and its the only bar around here that doesn't have a meth-head reputation.

    I love dive bars. I've worked in a couple. They're where the “real people” hang out.
