Ah, the dive bar. It's a term that now gets bandied about to describe just about any place that lacks decorative taste and ambition, or isn't scene enough, or doesn't offer absurdly overpriced cocktails to upscale pretenders who can't even smell the liquor over their own bullshit. But a true dive bar, in the sense of Oak Hills Tavern, is a place where expectations and inhibitions vanish and are replaced with a hardly lucid, but nevertheless invigorating, sense of conviviality, of purposeful, collective abandon. It's a joyous thing and it's surprisingly liberating to take part in.
