Because this was my 1,000th bar within the Seattle city limits, a few friends joined me, as we drank strong, cheap drinks in the corner of the back bar -- not totally different, I imagine, than was done years ago at the Turf by Bearcat Baker, the "Riverton Negro" who held the Northwest heavyweight championship and used to hang out there. (Seattle Times), or hundreds of other old-timers. Of course now our local professional athletes tend to be millionaires, and sip their drinks at places worlds away from The Turf and Ludi's. But if you like to have an occasional nip with folks a little closer to street level, it's still a nice little place to drop into.
