thursday december 4

today i went to mayday malone's for the first time, partly out of convenience (i was in the area and wanted to watch the leafs + cowboys/bears) but mostly because i was curious to see what a bar named after ted danson’s cheers character would look like. during my two hours there, i observed that it was actually more cheers-ish than i expected, though that didn’t necessarily feel like a good thing — a bunch of middle-aged men who sit at the bar and seem to know each other, presumably because they drink every day, isn’t quite as charming in real life. also, sitting by myself at a table off to the side, i really sympathized with how all the overlooked extras must have felt.
