#1087 - Pioneer Tavern, Long Beach WA - 4/30/2010
This place is along the main highway on the Long Beach peninsula and I've passed by it many times and never been particularly tempted to go in. But when I finally did I found the best cast of characters of any of the peninsula's bars and the nicest people of any bar in -- well, pretty much anywhere.
It's a fairly typical neighborhood bar, with a card room for Texas Hold'em and Cribbage nights (it also has a weekly "chick flick night," though chicks were a very distinct minority, and chicks below 60-years-old). It has tavern sorts of food, and both the bartender and the assembled drinkers were cheerful and wry.
